Four visitors and a guide were mugged at the Silvermine damn in the Table Mountain National Park (TMNP) on Wednesday.
It has been reported that the guide managed to get away and immediately called for help while a park ranger notified the Kirstenhof police.
One of the visitors was stabbed and victims were sent to hospital.
TMNP visitor safety rangers and the TMNP dog unit are searching the area and will continue to patrol until the Silvermine section closes at 6pm.
Visitors to the park are warned to be on the look out for any unusual activity.
