"Further operational meetings will take place during the course of this week with SANParks, SAPS and other law enforcement agencies to solidify operational plans. Given the extent and remoteness of the Park, it is a challenge to have a constant presence in the area. However, the safety of park-goers is important and it must be stressed that citizens remain vigilant given they enter at their own risk. "SANPark has also confirmed that two arrests have been made in connection with the incidences which took place in January. These perpetrators were responsible for a mugging incident which took place between Platteklip and Signal Hill. The National Parks have also added these additional resources to their security plan:
"SANParks is deeply concerned about any incidents taking place in the park and requests that hikers save the emergency number on their phones."*For any emergencies, contact 086 110 6417 or 107/021 480 7700.
