Security measures at Table Mountain National Park are to be beefed up, SA National Parks (SANParks) said on Wednesday.
"SANParks is aiming at making a significant dent in the incidence of crime on Table Mountain," said chief executive officer David Mabunda.
This would see the number of patrolling rangers increase by 50.
The rangers would be trained to the same level as Kruger Park rangers and would be responsible for safety, rescue and disaster management at Table Mountain.
"...We want both our domestic and international visitors to be able to enjoy the Park to its fullest without any fear," Mbunda said.
The number of dogs used for security operations would also be increased.
The park would maintain its relationship with the SA Police Service, Metro Police and other stakeholders despite the increase in internal security measures.
