In order to celebrate National selfie Day, we thought we’d share a few of our recent favourites. Continue to post, tag and share your Cape Point selfie & who knows, we may repost your selfie next!

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!

Cape of Horns: Bontebok of Cape Point

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.
