wild card

Unread postby doobs » Tue May 24, 2011 9:48 pm

Hi all,
I've bought a Wildcard cos we're off to kruger at the end of our hols.
Am I right in thinking I can use it for boulders beach and cape point? What about the table mountain cable car?

Hi doobs and Welcome!

You can definitely use your WildCard for Boulders and for Cape Point and I believe that WildCard holders also get a discount for the Table Mountain cable car, but I'd suggest that you check their website as the cableway is not run by SANParks.

In case people don't already know, you get a 20% discount on the cable car with a Wildcard.

:thumbs_up: doobs. Wild Card is the way to go. Cape Point entrance fee is R80.00 per person.......x that by two.......!!! Huge Saving. SO (Hubby) and I were there last Sunday - had a lovely lunch at the restaurant and took the funicular (cost extra) up to the top lighthouse. Had a fab time!

Have heard that Wild Card can also be used at the Two Oceans Aquarium. Not sure on this one though! Someone will have to confirm.

Not been to the aquarium but cape point park was brilliant. Saw baboons, dassies and two types of bok, mostly on the way to olifantsbos. And the two capes were awesome too.

WCNP and entrance fees

Unread postby Hugh » Tue Aug 07, 2012 11:28 am

Hello mites
I just want clarification . We have booked Abrahaamskraal for 3 nights over new year .. But Hugh and I have our wildcard . Daughter and her SO will not have one . I just want to know if they have to pay everytime they enter the park as we might want to travel up to Saldahna one of the days or pop out for supplies in Langebaan
Its not worth their while getting a wild card as she is a South african citizen ( price is reasonable ) but he is not .Price expensive . Matteo is under 2 so he is free.
Thanks

Hugh, they will pay for the nights they are staying in the park. They must keep the permit they are issued with on arrival, get it stamped when they leave the park and show again when they re-enter.
