The iconic Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has been whisking visitors to the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town for decades. It has been in operation since October 4, 1929, and has welcomed millions of visitors to experience the beauty of one of South Africa’s most famous natural landmarks. The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway is a must-visit attraction for anyone visiting Cape Town, offering breathtaking views of the city, the ocean, and the surrounding mountains from its rotating cable cars that climb to the summit of Table Mountain. The Cableway shuts down annually for maintenance, repairs and upgrades.

Annual Cableway Maintenance

The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway has an annual maintenance shutdown. It is closed for a period of a few weeks every year during the low tourism season, for maintenance and upgrades to ensure the safety and efficiency of the operation. Visitors are advised to check the cableway’s schedule for any planned maintenance shutdowns before planning their visit.

Cableway Annual Maintenance 2024

In 2024, Cableway plans to extend its annual maintenance shutdown for a period of 7 weeks. From July 15, 2024, until September 1, 2024, Table Mountain Aerial Cableway will be closed for an extended yearly maintenance closure. If the weather permits, it will be re-opened on Monday, September 2, 2024. According to international norms, the prolonged closure is consistent with the maintenance programme. In addition to updating stores and the Upper and Lower Stations’ appearance and atmosphere, a lot of work will be done on the ropes and cable cars. With these adjustments, we can guarantee that when we re-open, visitors will have an even greater experience. Visitors must please plan their holidays and trips up Table Mountain accordingly.
