Table Mountain Cableway records 26 millionth visitor

24 January 2017

Table Mountain Cableway welcomed its 26-millionth visitor to the mountain, with the latest million visitors reached in a record-breaking 11 months.

Cableway managing director Wahida Parker says it had taken 28 years for the Cableway to record its one millionth visitor in 1957. But, thanks to consistent visitor numbers throughout 2016 and an increase in visitors during the usually quiet, colder months of winter, the Cableway was able to celebrate reaching the latest million visits in only 11 months.

“I think it sends a resounding message to Cape Town to say all the hard work that had been put in to make Cape Town a destination of choice, is paying off and we must continue to find ways to attract people to come and visit us.”

The honour of being the 26-millionth guest goes to Craddock resident Elbie Mattheus who on Wednesday received a prize. Elbe's prize included 'a double Cableway ticket for her and her boyfriend Morne Viljoen, a Table Mountain Café voucher, Shop at the Top merchandise, a Monopoly Cape Town game board and a Jiva Grande Spa signature treatment followed by a delicious Afternoon Tea for two at the prestigious Taj Cape Town Hotel.
