From the title of this post you will guess, that by the end of it, you may soon possibly be going up Table Mountain. If going up our beloved Mountain in a Cable Car is something you have always dreamed of and never done, then read on. I am the happy blogger fairy that can make your wish come true.
At the beginning of May The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway opened #KidzSeason. What this means for families with more than one child, is that they now can easily afford a trip up our African Wonder too, with their awesome 3 for 1 promotion where one adult paying for a return ticket of R240 can take two kids up absolutely free. Our family were very lucky to be able to spend last Saturday up the mountain as a part of the opening of Kidz Season. We had so much fun. And as one of my kids aptly put it, “Had the best day ever!”
None of my children have ever been up and it was only my second time, so I am not sure who was actually more excited. Me or them! We were so impressed with the entire operation. From the moment we stopped in the car park and got onto the free MyCiti bus that travels from lower Tafelberg Road to the Cable station every 20 minutes, to getting off the cable car that rotates while you are on it so you get an amazing birds eye view and being greeted with one of the smoothest running operations I have come across in a long time. The facilities, staff, management and mountain are amazing. We lacked for nothing, all the staff are incredibly friendly and attentive and they made our experience on the mountain excellent.
As part of the #KidzSeason promotion, the kids each get a little treasure map to keep them occupied on top and included in that, are vouchers for some sweet treats that can be handed in at the Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Cafe where we enjoyed a sumptuous Buffet Lunch and the kiddies each devoured Giant Pizza slices. I also really loved that all plates and cups used in the restaurant and at all the other areas selling beverages and foods, are all compostable and Eco Friendly. The Mountain is also very Water-wise and committed to remaining as Green as possible. You can read about their advocacy of Responsible Tourism here.
It was pretty chilly up on the Mountain and there was a lot of cloud, but we saw so much and the view from the newly launched Wifi Lounge was so special, because it was as if we were sitting right on top of the clouds. The WiFi lounge was a divine solace from the chill outside and allowed us the opportunity to relax on comfy couches, charge our phones and allow the kids to freely look out the windows while we enjoyed a cappuccino from the kiosk.
I thought I would share some of the pictures of our time at the mountain and then once you have checked those out you can get onto the best part of this post….Your chance to take your family up the mountain too!
