Visitors to the Boulders Penguin Colony popularly known as Boulders and the Cape Point are required to pay conservation fees.
SANParks is working towards making its reserves cashless in order to ensure the safety of visitors.
As of 1 April 2023, the two entry points will not be accepting cash at the gates.
Visitors may present:
- Debit or credit cards
- An online ticket purchased on the SANParks website
Park Manager Megan Tapli said “I am delighted to see SANParks moving into the digital era and making gate entry available for purchase prior to arrival. I encourage people to purchase tickets before departing from home so that they can enjoy their visit to the park without the hassle of having to transact on arrival. We are moving away from cash and hope visitors will move online with us.”
Tickets are available on the website: SANParks.
