Table Mountain National Park will be getting a R50 million upgrade to assist in enhancing its popular tourist offerings.
SANParks recently announced that over the next year and a half, a total of more than R50m will be invested into 3 critical tourism hubs within the park, including Cape of Good Hope and Boulders.
These are both must-do and must-see sites for both foreign and local tourists to the Mother City. Visitor numbers have reached between 680 000 – 860 000 per year. Both are also considered important to the tourism economy in Cape Town.
The upgrade to Cape Point will include an upgrade to the entrance gate, rehabilitation of the road between the gate and the point as well as a new sewerage treatment plan. The ugrades at Boulders will mainly consist of improving visitor flow.
The Park Manager of Table Mountain mentioned that the investments into the Natural Wonder will ensure that the park remains a destination of choice for local and international visitors for years to come.
It is also anticipated that the upgrades and constructions will represent a considerable amount of job creation opportunities for the community.
