Thursday mornings are a favourite here in the office. We recline our chair, have a few snacks close-by (don’t tell our personal trainer) and read through the hundreds of TripAdvisor reviews – bliss.

South African National Parks is introducing new gate access technology at Table Mountain and West Coast National Parks on November 1st 2018; the new gate technology is expected to streamline ticket purchase and quick access for visitors to these parks.

George Allen Senior said, “Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It’s the best part of the day.” Who is George Allen Senior? We don’t know, but we absolutely agree with him, and that’s why we’re encouraging you to get to Cape Point early.
An information update from South African National Parks regarding the current roadworks.
Table Mountain National Park has appointed a replacement roads contractor to complete the section of road works before the Rooikrans traffic circle on the Cape Point main road and work will soon recommence. The same contractor will also work on the Cape Point main road between Rooikrans and the Olifantsbos link road intersection
The park expects the site establishment to start on the 1st of June 2018 with construction starting shortly thereafter and to last for approximately 20 months.
Visitors & tour guides can expect a stop and go in place as well as short delays as traffic moves through the section of road works. Please also adhere to all traffic signage especially speed advisement’s.
Please allow some additional time for waiting in the queue especially at peak times of the day.
Please accept our apologies in advance for the discomfort the delays will have on a journey to and from Cape Point.
Thank you for your continued support!
Cape of Horns
Bontebok of the Cape Point
Near extinction of bontebok in South Africa
Bontebok were once so numerous in the Cape that the first colonists considered them to be pests. The wanton slaughter of the animals eventually decimated the population. By the mid-1920s, there were less than 20 bontebok in the Cape.
In this part of the series we take a look at some ericas found in the park. The Cape Peninsula has 2 285 flowering plant species; Table Mountain National Park alone has 1470 of these. Mountain fynbos dominates the park. We’ll introduce you to some plant species you can find within Table Mountain National Park, which includes the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point.
