Guidelines for personal safety

As Table Mountain is an urban park, please exercise the same common sense and security precautions that you would anywhere else in the world.

  • Do not attract unwanted attention by openly displaying cash, cameras or other valuables.
  • If you are confronted by a criminal, don’t resist. Handover possessions as resistance might incite a mugger to violence.
  • Program emergency numbers in your cellphone before your ride.
  • Don’t ride alone; four is the ideal number.
  • Remain on designated trails.
  • Allow yourself enough time and inform someone of your route and what time you’re expected back.
  • In case of injury, take time to assess the situation. Phone for help but be aware that some parts of the Park do not have cell phone reception.
