We rented a car and drove down the peninsula. Stopped at Boulders Beach, then on to the Cape of Good Hope and the lighthouse. Beautiful scenery. Wonderful view from the lighthouse. The restaurant on the site had great cuisine and was a perfect way to relax after our hike up to the lighthouse.

No tour to South Africa is complete without a visit to the Cape Point or The Cape of Good Hope. There is a tram which takes you to the intermediate base of the cape point, from where it is a small hike to the top of the cape. There is an old light house atop which has an interesting history....

We saw some wild Ostrich, half dozen Baboons snatching eatables from people. An hour here is more than adequate. Nothing much to see really

Enjoyed the visit to Cape of Good Hope, nice scenic coastline of the Atlantic ocean, waves thundering into the cliffs. A bit of wildlife to see, Ostrich's roaming around on the foreshore, and plenty of Seals & cormorants out on the rocks.

I loved the trail down from the light house to the CoGH. It was brilliant: complete with a little sandy cove. Wonderful!

It is again, one of the most fascinating places in the world. Since my first visit in 1999, I was dreaming to come again. And I was not at all disappointed. It gives a special feeling due to the beautiful landscape.
