Media Release: Post-fire rehabilitation update in Table Mountain National Park

Date: 2015-08-21

Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) takes pleasure in announcing the re-opening of certain burnt areas which had been closed off to the public.  The areas had to be closed off following the March fires for the safety of visitors, and to allow natural systems to recover.  Restoration work started immediately after the fire with attention to both restoring access as well as the natural elements. TMNP Management was encouraged by the general compliance to these closures and appreciates this patience with the restricted access.  Now, five months after the fire, fynbos recovery is showing great progress and mountain lovers can once again look forward to their favourite hikes and to see the wonders of fynbos.
