My Green Card – a new discount card for Cape Town locals

Finally Cape Town’s Table Mountain National Park has come up with another discount access card for locals which takes the place of the Cape Town Wild card which my family was so fond of using. This is an exclusive opportunity for Cape Town residents to discover the beautiful natural areas on their doorstep.

Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) in association with Hi-Tec has recently launched its latest limited entry access card called “My Green Card“. The card is available exclusively to Cape Town residents and provides twelve free entries into any of the TMNP pay-points such as Cape of Good Hope (Cape Point), Boulders Penguin Colony, Oudekraal, Silvermine and the braai/picnic areas at Tokai, Newlands and Perdekloof.

The cost of the card is R80 which is incredibly reasonable when you think that one one adult entry into Cape Point is the same price. It will increase to R85 on 1 November 2011, in-line with South African National Parks annual tariff increases.

We loved our Cape Town Wild cards and used them often especially to visit Boulders and Silvermine – both fantastic spots for small kids! I was really disappointed with the Wild card tariffs went up to almost R300 and was unable to renew but I will definitely be purchasing a “My Green Card” for our family shortly!

Another bonus is that the bulk of the purchase price goes directly into conservation efforts unlike previously when administration and production costs were high. “My Green Card” will be available to purchase throughout Cape Town via TMNP offices immediately and Cape Town Tourism Visitor Information Centres from September this year. “My Green Card” holders are also eligible for a 20% discount off Table Mountain Cableway tickets and 20% off their new Cable Card, which allows the holder free cable car trips for a year.

To purchase TMNP’s “My Green Card”, a South African ID, 2 ID photographs and proof of residence is required. For further information on TMNP’s My Green Card call +27 (0)21 701 8692, or e-mail tablemountain@sanparks.org or visit www.sanparks.org
