This National Park is an easy day trip from Cape Town.There are stops at Kalk Bay for shopping and eating and the Boulders to see the penguins. Even Noordhoek Village. This site is world famous and visitors are standing at the southern tip of the African Continent. Worth reflecting for a moment on this fact. ( The real geographic tip... More

Interesting park with some animals. Go to the lighthouse to see spectacular views of the coast. Pathway also offers great photo ops. Drive to the sign which indicates the exact geographical location of the cape.

I did a helicopter tour around the cape, starting from the waterfront in cape town. I really can recommend it to spend the money.

It is unspoilt with magnificent views over the sea and into the mountains. The fynbos is unique and very beautiful at most times of the year.

I didn't really know what I expected to see at the Cape but I got a fabulous surprise. We stopped off in one of the bays to have lunch - watch out for the baboons! There are signs warning you but they come out of nowhere really quickly and run off with any food - you basically have to be... More

The Cape is a low lying Beach area, not particularly impressive except for its history. Get the photo of yourself at the sign indicating your location. Watch for wildlife.

A name you hear about early in childhood, the infamous Cape Of Good Hope. It's the end of Africa and really feels like it. It's not been spoiled in any way (like for example Land's End in the UK). The coast is beautiful and feels remote. We even saw an Ostrich grazing with the ocean behind as we drove out.... More

Now recognised as NOT being the southern-most tip of Africa, it's still a great place to visit as part of your sight-seeing itinerary. A couple of hours drive from Cape Town, it must be really spectacular when there's a storm! Waves breaking on the rocks, howling winds. It was pretty calm when I went, but still you can see where...

We visited the National park with Cape XTreme and it was fabulous. Lots of pictures to be taken. 360º of breathtaking natural sceneries and it only gets better as you hike up the mountain to get to the old lighthouse.
