A bit of a drive to get up here, and a hike but totally worth it. On our way here our guide told us to shut the windows and lock the doors, for good reason as well. As we were heading up the car in front of us stopped to take some pictures and some monkeys came and opened their... More

We took the coastal route from Cape Town to Cape of Good Hope. The scenery is beautiful! It's about a two hour ride with stops, well worth it. Again, the view from the Cape is stunning and it was fun to see the baboons. I highly recommend this if visiting Cape Town

Beautiful, scenic drive to an enchanting location. Definitely a must do for anyone visiting south Africa and Cape Town, especially if you are also planning the trip to also see Cape Point.

Great hike, bit of a drive but amazing views when you get there of the Atlantic and Indian colliding. If you have enough time, I would this stop at the top of the list of Cape Town places to hit. I loved the sign with KMs to everywhere in the world.

Words simply couldn't describe. From the ride down from the Cape Town to the Cape itself, it's all about peace and tranquility. Calm ocean, peaceful birds chirping around ... Mother Nature is just enchanting.

This is en route to Cape Point and is definitely worth a stop, being the most South Westerly point of Africa. There is the obligatory photo opportunity with the Cape of Good Hope sign, as well as great views over the Atlantic ocean. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather and the sign to ourselves for 5 minutes to... More

Weather was perfect when I visited the place, which helped a lot to enjoy the place better! Location of the Cape... More

So awesome to know we were at the Southwestern most point in Africa, and at the point where ships sailed for centuries and gained hope as they passed, and were able to make it through all the weather from the Indian Ocean coming into the Atlantic! very cool.
