Top rescue teams, pilots and Metro Rescue have called for a helipad to be built on top of Table Mountain to facilitate helicopter landings in emergency rescue operations. The call comes after seven rescues were carried out on Table Mountain during one week in January, one of which entailed an Air Force helicopter landing on the summit in high winds in the dark. Because Table Mountain is a national park and a World Heritage Site, construction of infrastructure is strictly controlled. But Fiona Kalk, spokesperson for the Table Mountain National Park, told the Cape Times the proposal would be put to senior park management next week.
Could this also be another way for tourist to get up there?
Pictures of Table Mountain. I’ve been living in and around Cape Town all my life and have never been up there.
