We’ve hosted celebrities, presidents, royalty and many other special visitors in our 89 years of operations, but we were especially delighted to welcome a rarely spotted caracal, or rooikat, on Saturday 17 August 2019!

Our green team member George Myata spotted the surprise visitor crossing one of our wheelchair-friendly pathways at the Upper Cable Station.

He says, “He just walked right across the pathway and I was so excited because it was the first time I’ve seen a caracal up close!”

We love having these elusive animals around and are proud sponsors of the Urban Caracal Project.

Table Mountain teems with wildlife. Book your Cableway tickets and come and see our wonderful creatures for yourself!
