Great! There are indeed few places in the world to rival the view of Table Mountain, especially from Bloubergstrand and Tableview. There is something about that mountain that cannot be explained - it has a drawing power second to none. Last time, I took a picture in high winds with the beach sand arranged in the most beautiful patterns, while the mountain was partially silhouetted and streaks of orange-red emanated from just behind it, curving in a gentle sickle shape towards the horizon, where it stopped a degree above a ship.
Ahhh, Table Mountain .....

Thanks for the pictures, Kenty! :thumbs_up: Lovely indeed.

Silver Mines Braai

Unread post by albertjv » Thu Apr 03, 2014 11:22 am

Good day!

I've been trying to get hold of someone at Silvermines / Table mountain Parks, but all the numbers on the website seem to be out-dated / incorrect. PLEASE update your details.

We would like to braai at Silvermines on Saturday, and just need some details on what we can / cannot do, where the braai areas are, and if we can book in advance? Is it possible to bring our own braai, or do we need to use the ones setup at Silvemines?

Enquiries: 021 789 2460

Silvermine Picnic/Braai Site: Definitely among the most spectacular lunch venues in the Park the Silvermine picnic site is situated on the banks of the reservoir with spectacular views of the Fynbos clad mountains. A boardwalk provides a picturesque trail around the reservoir that takes about 25 minutes to complete. Please call: +27(0) 21 780 9002, Monday to Sunday for further information.

Silvermine also offers group function facilities. Please call our film & events department on +27 (0)21 712 2337 / 0527 for further information.

Please note that no braaing is allowed around the dam during the high fire risk season (summer and early autumn). Braaing will be allowed once the fire danger index reduces which is dependent on a consistent drop in temperature and wind conditions. Open year round for picnics.

I see braais not allowed in summer and early autumn!
