Media Release: Table Mountain National Park takes top spot

05 December 2012

Table Mountain National Park performed exceptionally well in the core functions of conservation, constituency building and tourism development, including the implementation of a Visitor Safety plan to reduce crime. The 60 Visitor Safety Rangers along with their 11 security dogs of the Dog Unit were officially inducted during a Passing Out Parade last week Wednesday by SANParks CEO, Dr David Mabunda.

This award is yet another feather in the Table Mountain National Park’s cap of achievements. In May this year Table Mountain National Park became an official New 7 Wonder of Nature. The Inauguration of Table Mountain as a New 7 Wonder of Nature took place on Sunday morning (2 December) at the Lower Cableway Station at the foot of the mountain, as well as at SANParks Head Office at Groenkloof in Pretoria on Monday 3 December.
