The Table Mountain cableway will be closed until Sunday 9 August for its scheduled annual maintenance.

The annual maintenance is done with the help of a team of Swiss engineers.

This year’s work will include cleaning and testing of the ropes, servicing and a haul rope change, which happens about once every five years. The cable car cabins will also get a facelift.

The visitor specials will still be on offer after the annual maintenance, including a free return ticket for adults on their birthday and a free return trip for two children when accompanied by an adult.

People who have birthdays while the cableway is closed can enjoy a free trip between 10 and 17 August. V
