Jeff's Experience

Jeff was visiting Cape Town with his old 86-year-old wife; he too was no spring chicken. At his old age, Jeff wanted to see everything before his 90th birthday. He chooses to go to South Africa with his wife because they thought they could see all the wild-life on a 29-day overland tour. Cape Town was the first stop where the group would meet at night. Thirty of them in total, the group was to meet at the Only hotel at 8:00 pm sharp.

Timewise Jeff was able to schedule in the Cable Car for 8 is. Since the first Cable Car went up at eight, it afforded them time to visit Table Mountain. Tickets for Table Mountain were bought five days in advance, with two senior cards at a discount rate to the average price. Now that they had bought their tickets online, the last step was to get confirmation of passes. The night before Jeff was worried that his tickets would not arrive, but he checked Gmail, and to his surprise, the tickets were there from two days before. Made things easy when he was checking electronic mails.

Op die dag van die kabelbaan, Jeff het vroeg opgedaag om die ry lank te vind. Die kaartjielyn is veral geraak deur die mense wat uit Suidoos-Asiatiese lande kom. Jeff, 'n outydse Amerikaanse burger, wou sake bespoedig deur voor almal in te kom, anders neem dit te lank om die berg op te kom. Kaartjies word aangebied as 'n pakket saam met Tafelbergkaartjies en geldig vir 'n tweerigting-spoedkaart met die kabelkar in Kaapstad. Goedkoop, maar tog bekostigbaar om op die kabelkar vir twee te gaan, Jeff wanted to know about his birthday and whether the Aerial Cableway offered free or discounted tickets.

Ongelukkig, Jeff was a foreign national, which made it difficult for him to present an ID. Andersins, it would have been an excellent idea to use his old senior ID to get Table Mountain birthday tickets for R 0.00. Sunset individual tickets were also available at the time that he choose AM tickets, but since he had a meeting with the overland tour group that night at eight, he wanted AM.

Aangesien Jeff sy kaartjies al baie dae tevore gekoop het, hy kon baie mense op die pad verbygaan, staan ​​tou om kaartjies by die Lower Aerial Cableway te koop. Hy was entoesiasties om een ​​van die eerste mense in die somer op die kabelkar te wees, wat net pas 70 mense. Noudat die tyd reg was, hy spring voor die tou om sy Tafelbergkaartjies in te los. Die personeellid van Tafelberg, dra 'n groen uniform aan die voorkant, was verheug om 'n kaart te ontvang van 'n ouer lid wat hul kaartjie aanlyn gekoop het met die sigbare strepieskode.

Die personeellid het die kaartjie met die hand-strepieskode-skandeerder gescand en vir Jeff en sy vrou padgegee. 4 ½ minute later, hulle was bo-aan die Aerial Cableway, en daar was 'n pragtige uitsig op die dag. Wolke bedek die Atlantiese kus in die sogenaamde Coldfront; wolke het ook die oggend Tafelberg bedek, wat bekend staan ​​as die tafeldoek. Hierdie twee natuurlike gebeure het gemaak vir die neem van foto's met Jeff en sy vrou. Hulle het 'n paar foto's vir hul kleinseun in die Verenigde State geneem.

Die state het 'n paar pragtige berge, maar niemand hou van Kaapstad se tafelblad nie. Die hoogtepunt van byna 1 km hoog en 3 km lank is die agtergrond vir die middestad in Kaapstad se sentrale streke. Atlantic Seaboard is die gesigspunt vanaf Tafelberg van agter Lions Head Mountain, met Signal Hill Road en Robbeneiland op ongeveer 7 km van die kloktoring by die V&'N Waterfront. Since these landmarks are so visible from the top of Table Mountain, there is no need to use a map, kyk! The only plans that visitors should be using are Google Maps South Africa. Navigating a city like Cape Town does require expert knowledge of where it is safe to go alone and where to stay in Cape Town, AAN.

Luckily, Jeff had booked at a beautiful sea resort for a day or two near the Waterfront. Their accommodation in Cape Town had provided them with the Do’s and Don’ts for staying in Cape Town, wat insluit die vermyding van gebiede soos Long St en streke naby Kaapstad Internasionale lughawe, nie veilig vir buitelanders nie.

Die hotel was aan die Waterfront, wat 'n relatief veilige gebied is wat bestaan ​​uit die Greenpoint, Seepunt en drie ankerbaai gebiede. Hul bekendheid in Kaapstad maak deel uit van die Atlantiese kus. Kampsbaai en Clifton is ook deel van die Atlantiese kus. Uitsigte op die Tafelberg sluit die Atlantiese kus in, wat dit vir Jeff en sy vrou maklik gemaak het om die Waterfront raak te sien, beaches like Camps Bay, en meer! Jeff was especially interested in seeing areas like Boulders Beach penguins, Kaap die Goeie Hoop en Kaappunt.

Those three areas covered on the first day of their overland tour of the Western Cape. With this in mind, they saved their photos from the view of Table Mountain to show their tour group of thirty people that night when they got down from the Cable Car.

Take from Jeff that the only way to buy Table Mountain tickets is online. Services like Table Mountain Tickets provide all-access, bundled tickets to the cable car. Tickets have skipped the queue for the high tickets line, which made a difference in getting up Table Mountain early – Highly recommended and essential.

Samevattend – Jeff bought his Table Mountain tickets five days before the Cable Car in Cape Town, which saved him hours of waiting time in the line for passes. He and his wife were able to see the view from Table Mountain by exploring the area near the Upper Aerial Cableway.

Pictures taken of the Southern part of Cape Town included mainly Cape of Good Hope, Boulders Beach, en ander besienswaardighede in Kaapstad, wat hy en sy vrou die volgende dag sou sien terwyl hulle op toer was.
