A sunset in Cape Town is truly special and there are many top locations in the Mother-City to witness one. However you really can’t beat watching the sun go down at the top of Table Mountain. So when the Table Mountain Cableway offer a Sunset Special during Cape Town’s summer months, we get excited!

What you can expect

Guests experience an African sunset from the top of one of the world’s 7 Wonders of Nature by taking a cable car to the mountain’s summit. The Sunset Special offers the opportunity to capture a beautiful picture from the top of Table Mountain during the summer’s longer days and balmy evenings. The Sunset Special is only available from 6pm to 8pm (during summer sunset hours obviously!).


With the half price discount added a return cablecar ticket during sunset hours will only cost you R137.50. We know, a bargain right!?

Who can purchase

Unfortunately the special is ONLY available to South Africans with valid SA IDs. However if don’t hold a South African ID don’t feel totally bummed out as there are so many awesome hiking trails that are totally FREE. Read about our favourites HERE
