If you have a 5-6 hours time window at Cape Town, you must go to the Cape Point Light House and the Cape of Good Hope. The ocean views are spectacular, and if it's a clear day, you will see beautiful shades of green & blue of the ocean stretched out across you against the clear light blue of the... More

Cape of Good Hope is truly stunning. A hike to the old lighthouse is a must. If you are feeling up to it, walk the extra bit to the end point for a gorgeous view back towards the lighthouse. Views of False Bay are not to be missed. As you drive down from the lighthouse to the Cape of Good... More

So so so so so breathtaking! Loved getting to walk around the park from the lighthouse down to the sand! Warning it is very windy down there, so make sure you have a jacket to keep warm!

Loved our tour of the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. Lots to see and experience. We saw Eland and Ostrich pretty close up and personal on the way through this park. Lots of interesting flowers. The lighthouse area at Cape Point is great. We ate at the restaurant there and were totally impressed. Fancy restaurant for a national... More

Probably the most fascinating view of Cape Town. Ocean make you feel so small yet liberates you from all your thoughts. Cable car takes you to the old light house for a fee. If you have enough time, definitely walk around, if not do not forget to take your picture at the Cape of Good Hope sign located on the... More

Gotta go to the Cape of Good Hope. Try and get here early to get the "must have" picture around the wooden sign. May have to wait our turn as every other tourist has the same idea. Was windy the day we were there, understand it is the norm. Watch for ostriches on the side of the road as you... More

Very interesting and beautiful park. It's a must if you are close by! Make sure that you are there with a guide that can tell you about the area or read about it before entering. There is a lot of interesting facts about this park! There can be a lot of tourists so come early or during off season. We... More
