If you are in Cape Town, you are in the land of the Mountain.
In fact they might as well name it Table Town or Hoerikwaggo City or something, the way our famous sea-mountain is without a doubt the star of the CPT show.
Super odd then that so many Capetonians have never been to the top.
Well, in another bizarre 2020 twist, the local travel industry is now depending on…wait for it…locals, to keep their ship afloat.
As a result, from Mondays to Fridays in October, South Africans with proof of ID can now ride the iconic Table Mountain cablecar for just R100 a return ticket.
As far as we recall and know, the practice of giving locals a lower rate at tourist attractions has traditionally not been a thing here in SA.
It’s almost as if there had been a weird agenda to keep out most of the people who live here and have them stay far removed from the city’s key attractions…
Anyway, it’s beautiful on the mountaintop so make sure you get your tickets and go enjoy our city and our gorgeous new natural wonder of the world!
