SANParks is once again under fire, this time regarding safety in and around Table Mountain National Park.
We’re entering the Cape’s peak fire season, which means choppers in the air and brave firefighters on the ground battling blazes.
There have been a number of incidents this month already, with members of the public on Table Mountain National Park’s Silvermine, Steenberg, and the Pipe Track routes all falling victim.
Table Mountain National Park is so popular that, during the latest financial year, it generated hundreds of millions in revenue.
The murder of 44-year-old tourist Ivan Ivanov on Chapman’s Peak recently led to a massive public outcry. Thankfully, authorities seem to have listened.
