Wahida Parker, our Cableway MD, addresses the load shedding incident at the Cableway

We, as the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway Company ( TMACC)  can confirm that visitors who were stuck on the top of the mountain on Monday 9 December 2019 when our backup generator failed to kick into gear, are now being safely brought down from the mountain.

Power surges are believed to have caused the failure of our generator. Visitors who were at the bottom waiting to go up, are being offered free tickets for an alternative day.

Our technical team is monitoring the impact of the sudden implementation of stage 6 loadshedding, to best accommodate our visitors in a safe and responsible manner.

We are doing everything within our power to make sure that any visitor's experience of Table Mountain is a positive one, even under these extreme conditions
