With that said, one should never miss a trip to the tip of the Cape Peninsula and share a spot with people that made history. Please make sure to follow all guidelines:

  • The daily quota of a maximum of 250 vehicles per day will be allowed based on the seasonal average of 30%, however, no more than 75 vehicles are allowed in at any given time. The daily quota could be revised in terms of compliance with the lockdown regulations.
  • Daily operating hours are between 08:00 to 16:00.
