The My Green Card: the discounted access card for Capetonians

It’s never too late to purchase your My Green Card which is a clip card exclusively available for purchase to Cape Town residents with a South African Identity document and grants you discounted access to the Table Mountain National Parks.

This is an opportunity not to be missed. With an affordable once-off rate of R167,00 which is the equivalent of one adult entry into Cape Point, provides the registered card holder with 12 free entries into any of the Table Mountain National Parks Pay Points.

The My Green Card can be used at the following pay points:
– Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point)
– Boulders Penguin Colony
– Oudekraal and Silvermine.
– Braai and picnic areas at Cape Point, Tokai, Newlands and Perdekloof

How does the card work?
The My Green Card is valid for one year from the date of purchase and gives the owner of the card 12 free entries into the Table Mountain National Parks and every entry used will be clipped off your card. Of the 12 entries only 6 entries can be used per visit, per day and all entry users must be South African citizens with a valid South African identity document. Your friends and family members can join you and you are allowed to bring 3 adults and two children. This is including yourself and counts as six entries.

Upon entry into any of The Table Mountain National Park pay points the card holder and every adult entering with you will be required to present a South African ID book or South African drivers licence. The documents must be the original and cannot be a duplication of any kind and it cannot be a copy that is on your smart phone.

How can I get one?
When purchasing your My Green Card at your nearest distributor (see ‘Where can you purchase the card’ below) you need to take along your proof of residence that is not older than 3 months; your South African ID; and 2 colour ID photographs.

The purchaser of the card is only allowed to purchase one card every 12 months (1 year) and when the owner of the card has used all their entries, may reapply after the relapse of the 12 months period.

Alternatively you may purchase a SANParks Wild Card, if you are still within the 12 months relapse period.
