A visit to the Cape of Good Hope is a must-do if you are down in Cape Town at least for the photo of reaching the southern most point :) There is a funicular to Cape Point and a nature walk up the hill at the Cape of Good Hope. I wouldn't count on seeing many wild animals once inside... More

The best stay I ever had when my family came to visit from France... We stayed in Simonstown for a week and visited all the attractions in the Southern Cape Peninsula area. There is so much to see there. It is well worth a few days stay over. Cape Point, the penguins on Boulders Beach, the fynbos in the Cape... More

The Cape of Good Hope is worth a visit if you are around and can spare at least a minute. As the place is probably the most popular scene for visitors to take photos in South Africa, my advice is that you'd better be very patient and do go there early durign the day to avoid crowds. Be prepared to... More

The Cape of Good Hope does not have as many and as good facilities as the Cape Point, but since it has been well-advertised as the South-Western most tip of Africa, everyone fancies a visit there. Thankfully, I evaded the Sunday crowd due to early arrival and didn't have to wait long for a photograph with the board that has... More

If you are going on your own, go in the morning as there are less tour buses then! Great restaurant to have lunch as the bottom. Baboons are really fun to WATCH. We did not hike up to the lighthouse, we were tired and jet lagged and just not up to it. Did see three ladies who did it in... More

You can certainly visit this sight on your own but it's always better when you take along friends or family or a significant other. On a sunny day the views are magnificent. You don't have to look far because even the rock formations, fauna and flora on the mountain itself are worth capturing on your camera. On cool days it... More

Amazing to be at the most SW tip of Africa. We decided to visit the Cape of Good Hope instead of Cape Point. Less of a tourist trap. If able, you have to hike to the summit. The views are spectacular! It was a surreal moment for us! Take photos that you will cherish forever!

waves crushing on the rocks and seals enjoying the spray. Dramatic coastline for great captures. Baboons and ostriches walking on the coast.

The Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point are actually right next to each other. There is a Cape Point parking lot, and also a Cape of Good Hope parking lot, but you get to them through two totally different roads. Advice: If you are coming on a busy day and the park entrance employee tells you there is no... More
