The special is valid on weekends and public holidays from May 1 to September 15, 2009, and every day of the winter school holidays (June 26 to July 19).

“This value-for-money special is a fantastic opportunity for children to see and experience Cape Town,” said Sabine Lehmann, CEO of the Cableway Company.

The City Sightseeing Bus special is R120 for an adult ticket, with two children riding for free. Buses depart at 9.30am each day from the Two Oceans Aquarium making daily scheduled stops at the Cableway. Visit www.citysightseeing.co.za or call (021) 511 6000.

The Cableway’s Family Winter Special adult ticket price is R145, with two children under-18 travelling free (normal child rate R76). The special is valid on return fares only.

Once at the top of the mountain, children can enjoy a fun treasure hunt as well as win various spot prizes. Visitors can buy refreshments and enjoy gourmet pizzas and hamburgers at the Table Mountain Café, located at the Upper Cable Station. The Shop at the Top in the old stone building stocks a variety of souvenirs and gifts to keep the entire family happy.
