Looking for an unusual way to spoil your loved one on Valentine’s Day? We’ve come across just the right activity for you. How about a Cableway ride up Table Mountain for date night? It is after all one of the natural wonders of the world, what could be more romantic than overlooking the breathtaking city of Cape Town with your love?

Watch the sun sink into the Atlantic Ocean creating unforgettable colours this Valentine’s Day? Table Mountain Cableway’s Sunset Special will get you to the view, for half the price.

This deal, available to South African locals only, is valid from 6pm daily and the ticket costs you R137,50 return. Tickets are available from the Lower Station Ticket Office or online from tablemoutain.net

Remember to have all ticket holders’ valid South African ID(s) or ID number(s) on hand.

Picnic and a bottle of the best in hand, let the 360-degree beauty of Cape Town make your Valentine’s Day one to remember.

If you want to pack light and get something on top of the mountain, a variety of food and drink options will be available from the Table Mountain Café, Terrace Bar and Wi-Fi Lounge.

Be sure to look out for the Valentine’s Day special at the Table Mountain Café. R120 will get you and your loved one four chocolate truffles and a glass of Steenberg Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc each. This special will be on from 12 February until 18 February.

The last cable car up is at 7.30pm, and the last down is at 8.30pm. For anyone not able to make a Valentine’s Day summit, the Sunset Special is available until Wednesday, 28 February 2018.
