An official release informed the creation of a new security hub at the New 7 Wonder of Nature which will aim to improve visitor’s security and serve as a central point for reporting of emergencies. 


According to Forestry, Fisheries and Environment Minister, Barbara Creecy, “the joint operations facility would be the main intelligence collection point for Table Mountain National Park safety and security matters”. 


The Forestry, Fisheries and Environment spokesperson, Dave Bryant, stated that the administration “will be closely monitoring the implementation of the commitments made. We cannot allow this invaluable recreational and tourism resource to be blighted by incidents of crime and it is essential that South Africa National Parks works with all stakeholders to make Table Mountain a safe place for all users”.
