Some useful tips for enjoying your Sunset Special experience at the Cableway:
Bundle up: the temperature drops at the summit of Table Mountain after sunset and it can get chilly so bring along a jacket or scarf to ward off the cold.
Book a ride: There is limited parking available at the Cableway and the last free My CiTi park and ride shuttle departs from the Lower Cable Station at 7pm so book an Uber or metered taxi.
Check the weather: the Cableway’s operations are weather dependent, so visit www.tablemountain.net, or call 021 442 8181 for updates.
