Cape Town Emergency Numbers

Here is some useful information about Cape Town South Africa’s emergency numbers.

I have compiled a list of the most important emergency numbers for you to use when travelling to Cape Town. These numbers range from general medical emergencies, crime & fire, poison and sea rescue. I have also included numbers to dial when and if you are on Table Mountain or your car breaks down along the N2 freeway/motorway. Otherwise, come and enjoy our world class food, wine, accommodations and my photo tours and walks
