I took a small tour bus (African Eagle tours) to see Cape of Good Hope and am so glad I did! We had great views and great photos. Be prepared for a line at the sign for Cape of Good Hope. It moves quickly and people were patient and friendly, which helped with the wait. It's also worth your time... More

Definitely worth the 1+ hour drive from the City Centre. Nature at its best. Scenic drive along the Atlantic Ocean and a short steep funicular ride brings you to the lighthouse at the peak. Magnificent views of the ocean, craggy cliffs and awesome surf. The drive around the Nature Reserve yielded encounters with a family of baboons, 6 ostriches and... More

Dias beach is a bit of a hike down from the funicular, but well worth it. It is deserted. It is a truly spectacular beach - you sink 2 feet into the sand when you get off the steep steps. Look out for all the dasi (kind of like cute gophers) on the steps down - you are surrounded by... More

Scenic 360 views. Take the hidden path connecting the lookout point to the lighthouse. Hidden beaches and jaw-dropping views await.

We studied history and learnt how Cape of Good Hope had gotten its name. The sea and the waves are such a lovely view to watch and you have a chance to stand on the landmark - Cape of Good Hope.

When I finally got to see the Cape of Good Hope, I was impressed. A beautiful scene of water and rocks. It s marked with a sign around which tourists will gather to have their picture taken. You can walk up the cliff face towards the light house if you want to, or you can just at about sea level... More

We saw ostriches grazing beside the Atlantic Ocean! It's a long hike up to the lighthouse, so if you aren't up for it, take the tram car. But the view is wonderful. Make sure you go down to the cape, where the sign is, for a photo op. The waves are huge!

When young we read geography and knew Cape of Good Hope. At last we made it a point to come and visit. We visited Cape of Good Hope on 5th June 2014. We went with the African Eagle Day Tours. When we reached there, it was afternoon and raining. Many tourists were there. We waited. Suddenly the rain stopped and... More
