You’re enjoying the amazing views at the top of Table Mountain or waiting in line to board a cable car, taking in the experience, when suddenly the electricity switches off.
Annoying? Yes. The end of your scenic adventures? No!
Load-shedding has been having an impact on tourist attractions nationwide and while we cannot prevent it from happening, we can help you understand how it affects our operations.
Here’s what you need to know about load-shedding at the Cableway:
Your safety and comfort are our main priorities during power outages.
“We would like to reassure visitors that we have sufficient backup systems in place whilst load-shedding is underway,” says Sabine Lehmann, managing director of the Table Mountain Cableway. “Visitors travelling by cable car will not be in any danger during a power outage.”
We encourage you to enjoy our variety of experiences that are not electricity dependent, like our free informative guided walks where you can admire our flora and fauna while taking in picturesque views of Cape Town, or enjoying refreshments at our café. Remember to bring along warm clothing as it can get chilly on top and don’t forget your charged cameras or phones.
