Differential Tariffs at Cape Point and Boulders as of 1 November 2018

10 November 2021

SANParks announced on 1 November 2017 that Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) would be charging differential tariffs as of 1 November 2018 at all its entry gates. The year’s notice was afforded to allow the public and commercial business the opportunity to prepare for the rates change.

This announcement was put out via a press release and on the SATSA website and has been followed up with numerous articles in a range of magazines and newspapers as well as radio interviews.

All the other 19 National parks have been charging differential tariffs since 2005 and Table Mountain National Park has now moved to follow suit.

As of 1 November, the park will have three rates for entry at the gates.
The Standard rate is what Foreign Visitors will pay.

The SADC rate afforded to those visitors who can prove they are SADC Nationals by producing their original passport on arrival at the gate

And the Local rate which South African Residents will be charged if they can prove they are SA residents at the gate on entry

The required proof for the local rate is one of the following documents:
SA ID Book, SA ID Card, SA Drivers Licence, SA Passport, proof of Permanent Residency or valid visa (work, spousal, volunteer, retirement, study)

We require all visitors to produce original valid proof of Residency or Nationality. We do not accept photocopies or scanned copies. This is a requirement for entry across all 21 national parks and is not unique to Table Mountain National Park.

Should you have any queries around the new rates please contact:
Saskia Marlowe
Hospitality Services Manager
[email protected] or call her on 021 712 7471 during office hours Monday to Friday

Thank you for your continued support

Buses at Cape Point

23 May 2021

Large buses need to exercise caution when using the bus lane at Cape Point Main Gate as we are in the process of adding an additional lane to the gate. Although there are barrier fences up and warning and directional signage in place, the lane is narrower than usual due to the upgrade. In addition there are workers and delivery vehicles on site so we ask that drivers be extra cautious when approaching the facility.
