Oh Bugger!
We arrive on the 28th and that was our first port of call, and having a little one in a buggy, cable car is our only option...so upset :(

Mary, I am not sure where you are staying, but a trip up to Signal hill is very special.

I have been in many parts of Cape Town and can imagine your disappointment.

My advice :hmz: forget it: forget preconceived ideas of the top of the mountain and just pack a picnic basket for the top of signal hill. Enjoy the wonderful moment of the most magnificent views you can imagine.

The only difference between Signal Hill and the top of the mountain is the possibility if a zoom lens. :wink: I have been to the top of the Mountain and I have cruised Signal hill... give me Signal hill anyday.. same view with a different lens.

I think you are over-reacting here as the posts about the cableway being closed are dated 2008. In any case, the advice to visit Signal Hill instead is excellent. Myself, I just drive down to the very end of Tafelberg Road and enjoy the lovely views from there — without paying the IMO exhorbitant cost for the cable car (altho WildCard holders do now get a discount). There's always a risk that the cableway will be closed because of high winds, Cape Town is a very windy city.

Enjoy your trip!

Hiking on Sunday I noticed that there are piles of bricks at the old overseers hut near Woodhead Dam. Clearly building is being planned. Does anyone know what the building is and what the the intentions for the use of the overseers hut?

Good day!

I've been trying to get hold of someone at Silvermines / Table mountain Parks, but all the numbers on the website seem to be out-dated / incorrect. PLEASE update your details.

We would like to braai at Silvermines on Saturday, and just need some details on what we can / cannot do, where the braai areas are, and if we can book in advance? Is it possible to bring our own braai, or do we need to use the ones setup at Silvemines?

Tnx!

Albert

Silvermine also offers group function facilities. Please call our film & events department on +27 (0)21 712 2337 / 0527 for further information.

Please note that no braaing is allowed around the dam during the high fire risk season (summer and early autumn). Braaing will be allowed once the fire danger index reduces which is dependent on a consistent drop in temperature and wind conditions. Open year round for picnics.


I see braais not allowed in summer and early autumn!
