The steep slopes that characterize much of the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) make it ideal for mountain biking enthusiasts. However, because this activity is very high impact and negatively affects the biodiversity of the Park and often clashes with the more sedate activities such as hiking and dog walking, there are designated areas where mountain biking is allowed. Popular areas are certain parts of Tokai Pine Plantation and Silvermine (accessible from gate 1)

Please download the Mountain Biking Environmental Management Plan for details on the designated areas. Mountain Biking also carries an annual permit fee of R300 which is attached to the purchase of a WILD Card. Day passes are available for Tokai.

The original Tokai Homestead still exists and is famous for the legend of the Tokai Manor Ghost. It is said that the ghost of a young man and his horse can be seen on certain nights. The Farm remained in the hands of the Eksteen family for over 80 years and was sold to the Government in 1883.

Tokai is well known for its beautiful forest. Simon van der Stel planted over 4000 oak trees in 1694 and the pines were planted in the 1800's. Today large tracts of pines are being removed to make way for indigenous plants and trees.
