It’s that time of the year again, Table Mountain Cableway’s 3-for-1 Kidz Season special kicks off from Friday 27 April to Monday 24 September 2018.

Children, tweens and teens alike – the Kidz Season special offers two youngsters under 18 years of age ride for free with every Kidz Season adult return ticket purchased for the special price of R250 online from or at the Lower Station Ticket Office.

Upon arrival, all young explorers will receive a sticker or a temporary tattoo and a Kidz Season treasure hunt map, in which they will find vouchers for free treats from the Shop at the Top and the Table Mountain Café. Older kids can download the free Voicemap app (available from the Apple App or Google Play stores) and enjoy the free Cableway audio tours.

Hungry adventurers can also stop by the Table Mountain Café for its Kidz Season Café Special, priced at R55, that includes a ‘Dassie’ pizza slice, 200ml fruit juice and dried fruit rolls.
