⛔️ Roads leading to the Cape of Good Hope/Cape Point and Simonstown inaccessible as the fire has spread further down Millers Point, Rocklands, and Plateau Road.

Please avoid the area as far as possible.

Subject: Urgent Closure Notification: Cape of Good Hope/Cape Point Section Closed

Dear Tour Operators and Visitors,

Due to the ongoing fires in the Simonstown area and the danger it might pose to our visitors' safety, Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) management has made the decision to close the Cape of Good Hope/Cape Point section of the Park this morning as a precautionary measure.

To ensure public safety, road closures have been enforced along the Simonstown Main Road and Plateau Road, affecting access to this area of the park in both directions.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, but your safety is our utmost priority. We strongly advise all visitors and tour operators to adhere to these closures until an official announcement regarding the Cape Point gate's reopening is made. Additionally, we recommend avoiding the Simonstown area as much as possible.

We will reevaluate the situation at midday today to determine whether Cape Point can be opened again. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation during this period. Please stay tuned for further updates via our official channels.

Sincerely,
Megan Taplin Table Mountain National Park Management
