Free entry at the gate, wild flowers in bloom and funicular specials are just some of the reasons Cape Point visitors will want to celebrate during the 10th annual SANParks Week, which runs from Monday 14 to Saturday 19 September.

With Cape Point at its best, this is the perfect opportunity to experience one of South Africa’s most scenically beautiful places – once inside the gates, visitors can purchase a funicular family pass on presentation of their South African ID books that will allow two adults and two scholars a return trip on the electric-powered funicular for R100 instead of the usual R165. Individual visitors can pay R30 for a return trip on the Flying Dutchman, a saving of R25 a ticket.

We know that kids love to get their faces painted, which is why Cape Point is offering free face painting at the top and bottom funicular stations on Saturday 19 September.

The Two Oceans Restaurant, as well as the food shop, will offer “Double Up” specials for the duration of SANParks Week. Say “double up!” when placing a sushi order and you get a second plate of the same sushi order at half the price at the restaurant. The same deal applies to any pizza on the menu at the food shop. Shout “double up!” and the half price discount will apply.

Further specials include a free laminated Cape Point placemat set when a purchase of more than R300 is made at any of the curio shops.

The Cape of Good Hope section of Table Mountain National Park where Cape Point is based is open 7 days a week (7am to 5pm April to September, 6am to 6pm October to March), with the Flying Dutchman Funicular, Two Oceans Restaurant and the curio stores open from 9am to 5pm.
