UPDATE: More FREE Ways to Celebrate Your Birthday

If it’s your birthday and you love getting free stuff, this is the list for you!

Last Updated: 10 January 2019

Celebrating another trip around the sun has different feels for everyone. With promises of cable car trips, aquarium visits, and chocolate brownies on the cards, you may as well celebrate.

FREE CINEMA UNDER THE STARS
It's your special day, so arrive at the gate with your ID and you’ll receive free entry, backrest and a blanket on the day of your birthday. Please ensure that the rest of your entourage pre-book tickets to avoid disappointment. If you’d like to arrive early to set-up for your birthday bash or perhaps an on-screen birthday message, please contact the team on +28(0)71 471 8728 or hello@thegalileo.co.za. This birthday special is not valid for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine’s or Easter special screenings. Get the schedule and read more about The Galileo Open Air Cinema.

FREE AQUARIUM VISIT
You can now enter the Two Oceans Aquarium at V&A for free on your birthday. As well as the six days after – that’s a whole week’s chance to experience the awesome underwater world. Just bring your South African ID along to the ticket office on your birthday. Get more info and discover 15 cool things you can do at the aquarium in our post on the Two Oceans Aquarium’s free birthdays.

FREE TRIP UP TABLE MOUNTAIN
Everyone can enjoy at least one day of the year on top of our beautiful mountain. The Table Mountain Aerial Cableway offers a free return trip to South Africans over the age of 18 for your birthday. If your special day falls during the annual maintenance period, you need to secure your ticket one week before or after that period. Collect your ticket from the Visitor Information Centre before 4:30pm on your birthday or up to seven days thereafter. Bonus if your birthday falls between 1 November and 28 February when the Cableway also offers their annual sunset special. In that case, your South African guests can get a return ticket for half the price after 6pm.
