The drive in to the Bay was great. We viewed animals and birds and there wasn't a crowd! The Cape is the most south western point in SA. There is a rocky "mountain goat" path to the top of the mountain. I attempted it and got about half way. The path is rocky, narrow and no hand rails however the... More

Reserve extra time in your itinerary for this panoramic point. Despite the gusty wind, do venture to all viewing points. Historic association in your mind adds to the rich experience.please refrain from adding to the locks dangling from the railings.

Just the ride over is amazing with beautiful views. As you look out you might also see ostrich and baboons as we did. There is a lovely restaurant and a snack bar to have lunch, a nice little souvenir shop and a lighthouse. Well worth the visit.

Cape of Good Hope is so famous that we studies in our textbooks as it's the most southwestern point of Africa! There is a big sign for tourists to take a picture showing that "they have been here!" Please budget at least an hour so you may be able to hike up the hill to the top of the Cape... More

The most beautiful drive I have ever been on. We saw ostrich, baboons and springbuck just roaming freely. The views are breathtaking...one better than the next. The "park" restaurant, Two Oceans, was SO good it was one of the best medals we had on our vacation. Not over crowded at all (entry fee is a little expensive). Don't miss this... More

If you go to the Cape of Good Hope, you should also see Cape Point. An easy 2 hour drive from Capetown, the place is dramatic, gorgeous, wind- and cloud-swept and worth the trip. The Visitor Center is volunteer run and offer a fabulous collection of history, bugs and bones! Crowded on weekends, so you might try a week day.

At the Cape of Good Hope you can hike to the top of the lookout area and feel the cool fresh air coming at you from any direction. Pretty special place...you must be willing to share this experience with the other people there, because there are lots, but awesome place to see!
