Here's how to get you and 11 friends into Cape Point for R5 each - no jokes, no catches... just bring along your SA ID book and R60

The R60 card offers 12 entries for one year into TMNP’s (Table Mountain National Park) pay points:
• Cape Point (The Cape of Good Hope)
• Boulders Penguin Colony
• Tokai
• Silvermine
• Oudekraal
• Plus FREE use of the braai and picnic areas at: Newlands, and Perdekloof picnic sites
• Gardening rewards - get 5% CashBack at popular nurseries
• Discounted entry to other places of interest in Cape Town.

This card is called “The Cape Town Wild Card” or “TMNP Cluster Limited Entry”.

Thanks to Aden Thomas’s show on Cape Talk http://www.capetalk.co.za this am!

And there’s more good news – each time you spend at participating Infinity partners (eg: Stodels, Kolnicks), you get cash back onto your card.

So take yourself and your SA ID and proof of Cape Town residence to one of the offices listed here and purchase one of those cards asap and become a tourist in your own province!

• At all times, one of the adults has to be a Card Owner.
• A Cardholder can only buy a Cape Town Wild card (12 entries) once a year.

Update on 18Jan2010:
Cost of the wildcard has gone up to R75, but still well worth it!  A single adult’s entrance into Cape Point costs R75.  Children under 12 cost R10 – so pay the R10 per child and save your 12 entries for adults.
This offer is not limited to a family – so a husband and wife can each get their 12 entry wildcard once every 12 months.  Thanks to a lady at the Century City information centre for this information.
Don’t forget to take your ID or driver’s license when entering the parks.


  1. Update on 27Jul2011:
    "My Green Card" is now available for R80

    Info obtained from here:" http://celtis.sanparks.org/parks/table_mountain/tourism/wildcard.php

    The TMNP My Green Card is available exclusively to residents of Cape Town, costs R80 and provides the holder with 12 free entries into any of the Table Mountain National Park’s pay points: Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point); Boulders Penguin Colony, Oudekraal and Silvermine, as well as to the braai and picnic areas at Tokai, Newlands and Perdekloof. It offers fantastic value as without the card, just one adult entry to Cape Point costs R80.
