Easter Weekend Information for Table Mountain National Park

SANParks have released the below statement ahead of the upcoming Easter long weekend. We ask that you please take note, be patient and stay safe on the roads.

 

Stop-go traffic control has been stopped on Cape Point Road as a lead up to Easter.

There will be two-way traffic flow until the 24th of April 2019 at which time construction we recommence with the stop-go reinstated.

The Rooikrans satellite parking area will be available as overflow parking for Cape Point over the Easter Weekend. There will be buses available to transport visitors to and from Rooikrans Parking at no additional cost. Additional staff are in place to assist visitors with parking at Cape Point over the Easter Weekend. Visitors are encouraged to follow the directional signage that will be in place over this time frame indicating parking availability and waiting times at Cape Point.

Visitors are encouraged to visit the Park early in the day to avoid midday congestion at Cape Point and the picnic sites. A capacity allocation will be implemented at Cape Point and the gates will be closed daily when this threshold is reached.

The beaches at Cape Point do not have lifeguards and you swim in the tidal pool or ocean at your own risk.

  • Baboons are present in the park. Please do not feed the baboons and make sure that all food is packed away if baboons are present.
  • Braai sites are available at Buffelsbay and Bordjiesrif.
  • Fires may only be made in designated fireplaces.
  • This is a no drone flying area.
  • Please note that SA residents are to produce an official ID Book or driver’s license to be eligible for discounted prices.
  • No copies of documents will be accepted.

 

As of 1 November 2018 Table Mountain National Park has implemented differential tariffs at the park entry points. Please see link for the tariffs for each site in the park: https://www.sanparks.org/parks/table_mountain/tourism/tariffs.php

The standard rate is automatically applied to all visitors at the gate. If South Africans wish to claim the local rate at the gate they must indicate this on arrival at the gate.

In addition, to claim the local rate South Africans must provide Original Proof of South African ID on arrival when requesting the local rate. All South Africans over 18 years old will be required to provide original proof of SA ID.

Adult rates apply to persons 12 years and older. Child rates apply to persons aged 2-11 years. No refunds will be provided after entering through the gate if the SA rate was not claimed and billed for on arrival.
