SA locals get price cut for entry to Cape Point and Boulders starting November
Sanparks is introducing new price structures for access to Cape Point and the Boulders Penguin Colony next month.
Locals will be charged differently from international tourists and visitors from the SADC region when accessing the two Sanparks sites.
The Cape Town Cable Car will not be affected by these changes.
As of November 1, the standard conservation fees for Cape Point for adults will be as follows:
- R303 (€19 or $21) for international guests
- R152 for SADC nationals
- R76 for both SA nationals and foreign nationals with official SA residence status
Currently, adult visitors across the board pay R147 to get into Cape Point.
As of November 1, the standard conservation fees for Boulders for adults will be as follows:
- R152 (€9-30 or $10-50) for international guests
- R76 for SADC nationals
- R39 for both SA nationals and foreign nationals with official SA residence status
Currently, adult visitors across the board pay R76 to enter Boulders.
The move is in an effort to increase accessibility to South Africans, explains Sanparks communications head Janine Raftopoulos.
In addition to the new fee structure, Sanparks will introduce new gate access technology that will allow visitors to purchase their tickets online.
