  3. This is such an awesome prize! Despite living in Cape Town all our lives, my boyfriend and I have never been on our famous cable car and it would be awesome to treat him to a spectacular sunset on our amazing Table Mountain 🙂

  4. Gabrielle Fluxman

    My mom is coming to visit from the Vaal River. It would be great to take her up and show her how much better CT is! Please pick me! 🙂

  5. A dream to be on top of our mountain taking in the spectacular views of the most beautiful city in the world.
    Free tickets even more of a dream!

  6. It would be such a gift to be given this lovely prize to share the views of the most beautiful city in the whole world from the top of ” our “mountain.

  7. What a wonderful prize! Would love to show my friend visiting from Japan the fantastic view from this wonderful mountain that all of us love and which is one of the first things overseas visitors talk about when describing Cape Town–maybe even since 1652!

  8. Would be awesome to help my boyfriend get over his fear of heights, we’re all about new experiences this year. I need this, please 🙂

  9. Dit sal ‘n wonderlike geskenk wees vir my en my verloofde. Hy was nog nooit op Tafelberg nie. Baie dankie vir die wonderlike prys.

  10. Sitting on top of one of the seven wonders of the world, surrounded by the ocean and being able to admire the beauty of the best city to stay in….who can ask for better!!

  11. What a wonderful way to end a summer’s day! A 360 degree panaromic view of the city and suburbs from a world-renowned landmark and no doubt the most spectacular display of light and colour at sundown. Hoping I am the lucky winner.

  12. Would love to take my kids up for the first time – It’s their birthdays next month, so this would be a real treat for the family

  13. High Table Mountain 🙂

    Would love to surprise my special lady with this top trip – she is terrified of heights and declines to hike up table mountain – now we can get the best of both worlds. Please grant us this opportunity so she can understand what she has been missing out.

    Have a good day further,


  14. I was considering climbing Table Mountain, but just thinking about it exhausted me. The cable car is definitely more my style.

  15. What an experience it will be to win a pair of tickets for the Table Mountain Sunset Special with my partner in crime. We just love the romantic events. Never done it would love to add to our bucket list. 🙂

  19. I’m afraid of heights, but would conquer my gear by being on this amazing adventure. I feel like a bad cape townian, I have never been up table mountain as my fear has always held me back but if I were to win I would tackle this head on and face my fear.

  20. My 90 year old mum is coming down to see me in cape town as she’s always wanted to stand on table mountain with me. Would love to win these tickets for her. Thank you.

  21. Why is it that you stay in Cape Town and you do not enjoy what you have under your own roof….We have family doing it, we have friends doing it and then you have the tourists doing it BUT still we just hear what lovely time they had and spectacular views they enjoyed and yet we still do not go?!! Maybe when we get the opportunity by having a FREE ticket in our hands that has to be used, we will DO IT!!

  22. Quanita Barnes-Rossouw
