The Cableway and your free birthday ticket: what you need to know

Editors' Note: Visitors celebrating their birthdays during the national lock down will be able to collect their free birthday tickets within the two weeks after the Cableway re-opens. This special is not redeemable for hikers using the special hikers'service.


Our free Birthday Special ticket collection period has been extended.

We love celebrating our local visitors' birthdays with them by presenting each of them with a must-have gift: a free Cableway ticket. In this blog post, we take you through the T&Cs of our popular Birthday Special .

The great news, SA residents, 4 years and older,  is that your free Cableway birthday ticket is available for collection from our Ticket Office  or Visitor Information Centre on your birthday or within seven days of your birthday.

That’s right! We are giving you extra days during which to collect it. Remember to bring your valid SA ID along so that our Cableway team members can verify your identification.

Read the fine print:

  • Please note that your Birthday Special ticket is only valid for your birthday and the following week, so if you collect your ticket on the last day of the week after your birthday, you'll have to use your ticket that day.
  • You must please bring along your valid South African ID (adults 18 years and older) or birth certificate ( children 4 to 17 years)  to redeem your free birthday ticket.
  • If your birthday falls during the Cableway’s annual maintenance period , you can collect your ticket a week before maintenance begins, or in the week we recommence service.
  • The free Birthday Ticket is not available online and must be collected from our Ticket Office or Visitor Information Centre at the Lower Cable Station on your birthday or within seven days thereof.

We can’t wait to celebrate your birthday with you!
