Experience a one of a kind high tea at the top of the summit of one of the New7Wonders of Nature right here at the Table Mountain Cableway.


Hosted inside the Wi-Fi Lounge on top of Table Mountain, sweeping panoramic vistas of our beautiful city and clouds almost as light and fluffy as the delicious mini lamb Yorkshire tartlets served up in the three-tiered stands with a wide variety of bite-sized savoury and sweet treats. The Wi-Fi Lounge serves a lovely selection of tea, coffee and other drinks too. Of course, tea is not a necessity for a perfect high tea, what certainly makes the occasion that more special is the addition of local MCC.

The venue offers free access to Wi-Fi to post as many photos of your experience at the ‘highest high tea’ says Cableway Food and Beverage Executive Manager, Eugene Labuschagne. The selection of treats served is quite extensive and generous, from Gazpacho Prawn shooters, Lentil Bobotie Bites and Mini Chicken kebabs wrapped in pastry to Lemon Meringue Tartlets and Peanut Butter Brownie Cheesecake, all this for the price of R325 pp.

The Very High Tea is served Mondays to Sundays, weather permitting and subject to reservation, at 14h30-16h30 and costs R325 per person, excluding your Cableway ticket. Discounted return cable car tickets can be purchased for R175 per person when making your reservation with the Cableway, online or from the Lower Station Ticket Office. These discounted tickets are available until Sunday 30 June 2019.

The Cableway caters for various dietary requirements. Very High Tea reservations are limited to 20 people maximum and 2 people minimum per seating.

Top Tips before you go:

Check on the weather: by visiting the Table Mountain homepage, calling their weather line at +27(0)21 424 8181 or sending an email to info@tablemountain.net. The operations are weather dependent and they will close due to gale force winds for your safety.

Dress warmly: because it gets super chilly at the summit of Table Mountain when the sun goes down so please do bring along something warm to wear. Forgot your jacket? That’s cool – they have some excellent warm clothing options for sale at the Shop at the Top.

Ensure you book ahead

Book your ride: using the free MyCiTi park and ride shuttle which runs until 7pm only. This also means you either have to book an Uber or a metro cab for your journey home.

Get social: by posting to Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, because if you do not, then did it even happen? We want to see your lovely photos of you indulging in your Very High Tea, so please tag us @ctbig6 and use the hashtag #AVeryHighTea.

There is no one way to explore all of the Cape Town Big 6, and much of what makes each of them so special is the variety of things to see and do at each. So if possible, take your time to explore each of the city’s most visited tourist attractions in as much depth as possible – as any local will tell you, you can spend a lifetime at each of the Big 6 and still not tire of them. Find the 3 and 4 day itineraries and tips here.
