Can I hike with a dog on Table
One of the most wonderful things about Table Mountain National Park is that it is accessible to everyone. Although there is a separate charge for certain areas such as Cape Point, for most of the park there is no charge at all to enter. So whether you go for a gentle amble in Newlands forest or an energetic hike up Kasteelspoort, anyone and everyone is welcome at any time at no cost.
Whilst the lack of charge may or may not be unusual, what is unusual for a national park is that dogs are also permitted through most of the park. There are a couple of areas, for example Orange Kloof which are kept dog free, but for the most part dogs are welcome to roam freely and enjoy nature as much as their owners. Dog walkers are required to buy a wild card and specify dog walking as one of their activities. They are also required to keep their dogs under voice control and not walk more than 3 dogs to one person. (for information on wild cards contact National Parks (012) 426 5011)
All the dogs pictured below walk regularly on Table Mountain and enjoy every moment of every walk.
