Road works on Cape Point Main Road

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!

Illegal Wildlife Trade: Perlemoen Poaching

The theme for World Environment Day (5 June 2016) is ‘Go Wild for Life’, taking a zero tolerance approach to the illegal wildlife trade. Wildlife trade is the sale or exchange of wild animals (dead or alive) or plants to be used for food, curios, medicinal ingredients, skins or even as trophies. Legal wildlife trade is regulated, however, illegal trade has grown tremendously and is now one of the major illegal money-making trades.

Cape Point Winter Special

Keep the winter chills at bay with Cape Point’s mid-year specials (1 June to 31 July 2016) where two kids (aged 6 -16) ride free on the Flying Dutchman Funicular when an adult return ticket is bought for R58. Head up to the lighthouse and enjoy 360-degree land and sea views – if you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two. Pop into the Lighthouse 5 store (at the top funicular station) or the Logo Store (at the parking lot) and you’ll receive a free Cape Point placemat and coaster set with every purchase over R400.
