Tour Locations | Upper Cableway Station Audio Guide: Tabletop Walking Tour
Interview with a Staff Member
NARRATOR: Keep following the path. A passion for preserving and sharing the beauty of Table Mountain is something that all Capetonians share, but there are few people more passionate than the Cableway's team. Asanda Thande is one of the most inspiring people who work here, on the mountain. She's been with the Cableway since 2012.
ASANDA: I visited the mountain for the first time in 2002, when I was still at school. I couldn’t believe how beautiful the mountain was, and I never dreamt that I would ever be working here one day. In 2012, I started working here as a hygiene assistant. Two months later, I applied for a cashier position in the ticket office and I was successful. I received training and learnt many new skills. In May 2015, I applied for the permanent position of Team Leader for the Ticket Office. The interview was nerve wracking, but I got the job! No two days are the same. I welcome and enjoy all the challenges which this position presents me with, and I love meeting the visitors from all over the world. I've learnt a lot of skills, and a lot about myself too. Our team is like a family. We are there for each other and support each other.
NARRATOR: Just keep heading back towards the cableway station.
