I loved hiking from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape point light house. It's not a very strenuous walk- the path and stairs are well defined; however you should have proper footwear to do it. It's not too long and the views are incredible. This is definitely one of the highlights of my stay (it didn't hurt that it... More

This gorgeous natural wonder is by far the most other-wordy places I've visited on Earth. Everything from the views, to the wildlife, to the setting, was magnificent. Don't try to cram this in, you'll need the whole day to visit between making plenty of stops getting there, to taking your time walking around the very tip of Cape Point. My... More

We had a great trip to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point! The hike up to Cape Point and then over to the Cape of Good Hope is a must-do! The views are awesome and there is some great wildlife as well!

The Cape of Good Hope is worth the drive. When you enter the park you will pay R110 per person and then drive about 15 minutes to the 'sign' where you can take the necessary photo. This is pure, raw nature with a rugged coastline and the blue ocean waves crashing into the rocks. On the drive we saw a... More

What a great place to visit! I loved every breath taking moment there. Lots of great picture spots . Was one of our favorite spots to see in Cape Town ! Not much of a cost to see this site at all and way worth it

Beautiful drive to the Cape, and very serene (almost surreal) when you spend a few minutes just taking it all in when you arrive. Expect other people to be walking around, so a little patience is required if you're hoping to get the perfect picture. Also, there are restrooms, but I don't think there's any place for snacks or drinks... More

We were very lucky to be on the top of Table mountain on a very clear day. Such amazing views well worth the effort, although the cable car makes it easier to get to the top but if your adventurous enough you can walk.

What a great place to visit , watch it if you sit anywhere for seagull poop,haha. Fantastic view and if you think about all the ships that have passed through the area over the centuries your imagination can run away from you. Easy drive from cape town, make sure you go up to the lighthouse area nearby,and watch out with... More

We have just returned from a blustery day in the Cape of Good Hope & I think it just added to the beauty! Our day tour from Cape Town was organized through Randy's tours and our guide was informative and knowledgeable! A must if you're in the Cape for a few days!
