Reeds Motor Group and General Motors supports TMNP visitor safety programme

The Reeds Motor Group and General Motors South Africa (GMSA) have provided a Hummer H3 to iKapa Honorary Rangers to support Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) with visitor safety over the festive season.

The vehicle will be used by iKapa Honorary Rangers as a highly visible patrol vehicle throughout the park including Signal Hill and Lions Head and Tafelberg Rd in the North. The vehicle will also be used in the south patrolling the road from Boulders through to Partridge point and into the Cape Point section of the park including Buffelsbay, Olifantsbos and Cape of Good Hope. Other areas to be covered will include Scarborough and Noordhoek beach car park.

“We at General Motors are proud to be associated with the iKapa Honorary Rangers and their support of TMNP helping with visitor safety over the holiday season. We look forward to partnering with them and making a difference in helping visitors over this busy period. Hummer enjoys a strong reputation for its off road abilities but less well known is the brand’s commitment to conservation and the environment. Hummer is a founder member of the Treadlightly Foundation in the US where members actively lead conservation efforts within the 4x4 community,” commented Tim Hendon, spokesman for GMSA.

“With visitor safety so important to all of us at Table Mountain National Park we are grateful to GM for supplying this vehicle to help patrol the park during December and January,” said Brett Myrdal, Park Manager of TMNP. “Thousands of visitors from abroad and South Africa are expected to visit the Table Mountain National Park, (a World Natural Heritage Site) over the holiday period and although there are daily foot and vehicle patrols throughout the park, this added presence will certainly support and enhance the visible uniformed patrols,” Myrdal continued.
