For many in Cape Town, taking advantage of birthday freebies has become a tradition. As lockdown has gone on for over three months, there are a number of people who have spent their birthday unable to partake in this tradition.

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has announced that anyone who celebrated a lockdown birthday will be able to access their annual freebie within the first two weeks of them re-opening.

Usually, you are able to access the free cable car ride only within seven days of your birthday, so this is a great deal.

South African National Parks has also opened under Level 3 of lockdown, and this means that when you take your ID along, you may qualify for a reduced entrance free. Being immersed in nature is a big part of Cape Town’s culture, and many Mother City residents rejoiced when it was announced that access to parks is allowed. Paired with the 12-hour-long exercise window, this has become heaven for nature lovers.

This is encouraging locals to enter parks without having to pay tourist fees.
