The Cableway is committed to conserving sustainable resources and reducing man’s footprint on the environment.

To conserve water, the Cableway has introduced compostable plates and containers for food instead of regular, washable plates.

100% compostable, these containers are made from organic material that turns into water, carbon dioxide and compost.



Halaal friendly

Exciting news is that the Table Mountain Café is also halaal friendly. Meat is supplied by a halaal butchery. No pork products are used, and the sauces served in the Café do not contain any alcohol.
