Get your free birthday ticket – even during our annual maintenance period


If you're celebrating your birthday during the Cableway's annual maintenance shutdown, you can collect your free ticket one week before or one week after.

The Table Mountain Cableway has an ongoing birthday special which entitles one adult over the age of 18 with a valid South African ID tos one free return ticket on the day of their birthday.

You can only get the ticket printed on your birthday and it is only valid for that day. But what happens if your birthday falls on a day the Cableway is closed?

For example, this year the Cableway will be closed for annual maintenance from Monday 8 July to Sunday 18 August 2018. If your special day falls within this period, you can collect your birthday ticket one week before (1-7 July) or one week after (19-25 August) annual maintenance.

Sometimes we are closed due to adverse weather conditions but we wouldn't want you to miss a chance to go up the Table Mountain on your birthday, so you can still come and get your ticket printed on the day. Just remember that the ticket will only be valid for seven days.

Understanding that you might not want to spend your birthday alone, we are also running a Kidz Season special that offers two children under 18 years a free return trip if they are accompanied by a full-paying adult, from 26 April until 30 September.
