We’ve put together a series of 12 podcasts to bring the myths, legends and true stories of Cape Point to you, wherever you are.
The Funicular Trams
A tough trip to the top
In 1877, the lighthouse keeper at the Cape Point lighthouse began to keep a visitor’s book. The objective was partly for his own records and amusement, and partly to reward those who had made the arduous trip.
The funicular turns 20 in less than a month and to celebrate, we’re doing giveaways, discounts, freebies, and loads of deals. Between 26 November and 16 December early birds at Cape Point will be rewarded.
With a bit of planning, you and your family can enjoy the magic of Cape Point for less than you think!
In order for everything to run smoothly at Cape Point, we have a large diverse team of staff who specialise in a variety of different tasks. And when it comes to the technical side of things, we have some of the best people in the business.
It’s no surprise that we at Cape Point are big fans of funiculars, with our own Flying Dutchman Funicular lifting thousands of people up to the famous views overlooking Cape Point and leading the way to the old Cape Point Lighthouse high above the sea.
