Cape Hope shows up often in history - Great to see it - and you HAVE to take tourist photos of each other at the Cape Hope Sign.

Really beautiful site with quite a bit of walks. Be careful we baboons in some areas as they can scratch your car, but nothing to worry about on the main parking to the main attraction.

We loved driving down to the Cape of Good Hope. The views are amazing and we even got to see a few baboons! The sign at the end is worth taking a picture at, too! Overall a wonderful drive!

The drive to the Cape of Good Hope is spectacular especially if you choose the Chapman's Peak drive. This is one of the Worlds top scenic drives but be aware they do not accept international credit cards so you must have cash. $38 rand per car

Make sure you take the walk from the "cape of good hope" signage at the bottom to the light house. Stunning views. Well worth the trip from Cape Town and easy to go back and forth in a day.

The most southern point of Africa and once again it was amazing. The tour operator we had was great and very knowledgable. This is also a must to do when visiting Cape Town.
