Table Mountain tickets

Jame’s Experience

James and his family from the UK were thinking about Cape Town as their next holiday destination. Luckily they came across information on the Table Mountain Cable Car. One of the things to do in Cape Town, so James set out to research more on the Table Mountain tickets, times, and hours. It was not long before he came across this site with all the information needed for his purchase of cards.
It was spring, and the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway had just reopened from its annual repairs. That was just great because, for two weeks, closed for inspection. Noticing that tickets were now on discount, James bought the early bird tickets for his family. The total cost was 20% lower than usual, and it was the right timing. Valid for seven days from the date issued on the pass. Tickets meant that James and his family could enter Table Mountain Cable Car. Applicable up to a full week after the official pass date.
Weather in Cape Town changes frequently, or so James read, so it was up to him to choose the right day to visit the national park. On the morning of his pass, the family readied the car to go to Table Mountain. Busy was the line at the Lower Aerial Cableway because it was spring, and people wanted to go up early. So too was James and his family overwhelmed with the number of people boarding the cable car. By the time they got there, it was 7:30 am. The first time that the cable car goes up with passengers and staff.
With these tickets, James got the best view of Table Mountain, Cape Town, and the surrounding Atlantic Seaboard. His family snapped some excellent photos too from above the ground. A car parked on the road just below the Lower Aerial Cableway, his family was able to spot the hotel which they booked on Devils Peak mountain. Three hundred sixty degrees later and lots of burst shorts, the family was at the top of Table Mountain. The son, youngest age 4, did not need a Table Mountain ticket. It was his birthday, and co-incidentally the Aerial Cableway did not need his card.
Four and a half minutes of the spectacular ride took this family to the top of Table Mountain, near the Café and restaurant. From there, they ate breakfast at the restaurant. It was cheap and early, so they would not have been able to find breakfast so quickly. The Table Mountain staff directed them to the nearest place to eat in Cape Town, which so happened to up on the mountain. Table Mountain tickets in hand, the family navigated the mountain to secure their return place on the Cable Car. They had a tour booked for the afternoon to Simons Town and Penguins.
The beach they heard was near Cape Point, a famous nature reserve on the southern side of Cape Town. Filled with African Penguins, the beach was a popular tourist destination in Cape Town, South Africa. Able to get down the mountain early because of the low number of people waiting for the Cable Car, tickets for Table Mountain afforded them the time they needed to go back to their hotel and change before heading out to Boulders Beach on the next tour time with their booking agent. Penguins were ready, they were on point and looked at the camera just like they had done before. As one of the most popular places in Cape Town, Boulders Beach was the most attractive place to go and see wildlife.
Since the drive was long, James and his family had just come from Tafelburg Road, down the Atlantic, all the way past Chapmans Peak Drive, to the Cape Colony (Boulders Beach). The 1 hour plus ride had them sore from the whole day driving. jedoch, they had gotten in the essential thing in the day, which was Table Mountain Cable Car and the tickets which accompanied their purchase with the website. Now they were finished for the day and wanted to relax at one of Cape Town coastal areas. They rested for a while before heading to Camps Bay for dinner along the beachfront, where there were lots of choices for places to eat in Cape Town. Seafood was their choice of dinner because of restaurants like the Codfather, Café Caprice, and other excellent options of Cape Town eats, delicious food awaits!
Now that they f dinner, they wanted to do something relaxing; Table Mountain tickets had served them well to get up and down the Aerial Cableway. jedoch, they still had not experienced Robben Island, too much for one day. Still, they had an idea to go to V&A Waterfront with the boats and rides. The V&A London Eye wheel was the landmark for the Waterfront. They had heard the trips there gave a bird’s eye view of Cape Town and Table Mountain, so James took his family to the V&A Waterfront ride. Now on most days, the V&A would be busy. Still, they had got an early start during the morning to Table Mountain, so it was easy to hop in the car and take a drive from what would have been a packed main road and drive through to the V&A Waterfront. Next, they had the views which they were supposed to at the V&A Waterfront through the wheel and took some fantastic photos of the surrounding Cape Town.
From there, the family was quickly able to get back to their hotel as the night had come, and James was concerned over his family and safety in Cape Town. James had read that it was best to go back after dark in Cape Town because of the safety issues and to make things better for getting up the next day. The next day the family headed out to Robben Island as planned, and it was another spring day in Cape Town. The weather was good, and James enjoyed the 4 hour Robben Island tour with his family before heading home. James always remembered the rule in Cape Town, which was safety first, which saved his family the risk of keeping out too long after dark and helping him feel safer while in Cape Town.
