Crime has been a continuing and increasing problem in Table Mountain National Park since 2004 when incidents started to peak, and concerns about making the Park safe for the public were raised.  Concern was expressed by the Mountain Club of South Africa in 2007 when it noted the rise in incidents, and expressed concern that SANParks had failed to be honest about the number of, and areas where, incidents occurred.


Safety issues in TMNP are not just crime related.  Fire is also a key cause for concern in the buffer zones.
