The route to Cape of Good Hope is beautiful and the place itself is also great. Nice rocks, rough see, great views! It was very windy when we were there, but for me that fits a place like this. For me nicer than Cape Point as you are actually close to the water.

Probably one of the most stunning drives you can take. The views are outstanding! Keep on the lookout for animals on the way. Keep your doors locked if the baboons stop your car. Please don't feed them as you may see some people do when you are clearly asked not to.

Just the feeling that i am at the southern tip of Africa gives me sense of satisfaction. I visited this place with my wife and daughter and they too loved the place even though it was very windy.

We did the Olifantbos hiking trail and wow it is so varied. You get to hike through so many different type of terrains to rocky, sandy and bushy. You get to see a lake, some interesting rock formations and shipwrecks along the coast. Overall the hike was about 10.5kms in total, we did it in a much quicker than the... More

Learn about the political prisoners. The boat ride over and back was a bit rocky so bring your Dramamine if you have any tendencies to get sick. The larger ferry was a smoother ride back. Tour guides were courteous, but you had to listen very carefully to translate a bit through dialect. We were there on a busy day so... More

The Cape of Good Hope gives a beautiful view with plenty of rocks to climb on and grab some good pictures! It's definitely worth the $8 or so entrance fee.

Watching the sea breaking over the rocks and feeling the wind in your face is a truly exhilarating experience. Stunning views and wealth worth the effort.

You won't regret renting a car and driving to see the Cape of Good Hope. The views from the lighthouse are stunning--you can see two oceans, one on each side of you as you walk up the trail. To get up to the lighthouse (the high point) where the views are stunning, there is a well-kept path and quite a... More
