A. If you come in from Cape Town try taking the very scenic route through Silver-mine, and if you have some time you could also stop to see the reservoir there. B. Cape point and cape of the good hope are very nice, you have very beautiful views if you climb up from good hope to the light house. Wild... More

Great park for hiking up the famous cape of good hope. The paths are very clear marked and have wonderful picture spots. You have t go here if you are in Cape Town

Visiting the Cape of Good Hope is worth the time and effort. It's a beautiful spot and the scenery on the drive is equally beautiful.

This is a must see when visiting South Africa. It is about a 2 hour drive from Cape Town and offers the most beautiful views. If you are fit enough you should walk all the way to the top of the cliffs there as the views are spectacular. I think the views are better up and right-just don't get too... More

You just know that a place as famous as this is going to be busy, and it was, but that didn't stop it feeling just that bit special. First our group went to Cape of Good Hope to get a photo taken behind the sign (like everyone else!) and to have a look at the amazing, dramatic sea so close... More

This day was so much fun, great for families and individuals alike, our tour started off at the Clifton Beaches, through Hout Bay for a ferry ride to visit the seals, followed by a visit to the penguins and a few gorgeous markets, then lunch at the information and natural history centre ending with a tough but incredibly rewarding 14km...

I rented a guided tour in which inside the Nature Reserve I made it by bike. The ride is about 6mi until you reach the Cape of Good Hope and start a walking on the rocks above sea level tour!!

My daughter and I took a little road trip upon landing from our overnight flight from London Heathrow, and were delighted with our destination, the Cape of Good Hope. A short drive from Cape Town, with beautiful scenic vistas, wild baboons along the way, and besides, how many people can say they've been to the very tip of the African... More

Keep your eyes peeled for baboons and ostrich nibbling at the side of the road! Amazing animals up close, spectacular views from the cape and from the lighthouse at the top of the funicular, and the entire park is a sight to behold! Watch out for large tour busses as they make for large and usually pushy crowds, but worth... More

As an avid history student, I expected the cape of good hope to be this great pennisula filled iwth trees and wildlife. Well, there were some tree and a few springbok here and there but mostly just rocks, a cheap sign and bus loads of tourists in line to take a picture next to that sign. You have to see... More
