If you're going to Cape Town, you've gotta get to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point! Even though they've figured out that geographically, it's not really the southern most point, it's pretty close to being the most south western! It's very windy here and at Cape Point. Beautiful views again. Some rock outcropping close to the parking lot... More

Its a spot of historic importance with a beautiful setting, so would recommend going. Its a unique feeling at be standing at the lighthouse looking south knowing that there is only sea for hundreds of kilometers till Antarctica. There are enough walking / biking trails for you to spend a full day exploring the park. Should plan in advance if... More

We drove down the east coast (a clockwise tour of the Cape as recommended by locals). We went up and down on the funicular as we were short on time - but the walk would have been easy. The lighthouse on top had great views (weather permitting) but expect strong and gusty winds. We made reservations at 2 Oceans Restaurant... More

The trip to Cape Point was a highlight. The recent fires had minimal evidence and we had a wonderful time climbing up to the lighthouse and getting blasted by the strong winds.

Its scenic and you can take a picture by the sign (if the other tourists will get out of the way). Still if in the Cape Town area it is a spot to visit.

Special view from the top of the cliffs after a light 10-15 minute walk from the parking lot. Look carefuly and you can see the dark grey Southern Right whales in the blue waters from the top, almost in the point where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet. Amazing wildlife too!

My husband & I traveled on March 23 from Camps Bay all around the peninsula south of Cape Town. We drove over Chapman's Peak, which has been closed due to recent fires. Check the website before you go to see if it's open that day - sometimes it's not. The highlight of our trip was our 2 1/2 hour exploration... More

Rodney (our tour guide) was excellent. It was a small tour (7 people), which was very nice. The penguins at Boulder Beach were impressive. Cape Point was wild, and extremely windy. Watch out for the baboons, who can be very aggressive (but Rodney lets you know exactly what is going on). We were unable to go see the seals via... More

It fun to visit the Cape where so much history has taken place. Be sure to be on the lookout for animals along the drive.

We parked at Cape Point and decided to walk to Cape of Good Hope. The sign says it is 1.5 hours round trip but probably closer to an hour if you are fit. Despite the fact that there is a car park close to Cape of Good Hope, there are very few people on those peaks. A really nice walk... More
