again with my 3 kids a little of a challenge but we loved it, just be careful not to loose one of yours, it is really dangerous to walk around but well worth the visit, it is astonishing. Big waves and strong winds when we where there

Had a wonderful day at the Cape of Good Hope. Besides being the southern most tip of the African continent, the views on the drive and at the location are absolutely gorgeous. I was worried about being over run by tourists but we went on a Monday and there really weren't too many people. Tip- walk the path up to... More

Really one of the best activities to do whilst in the Cape. Lots of walking involved so make sure to have comfy shoes on, but totally worth it for all the spectacular views! Be sure to have your camera ready for some breathtaking photos.

We visited this natural reserve on a sunny saturday afternoon. It was not as crowded as I expected. The baboons, ostriches and monkeys gave another taste to this nice trip. After making a hike to the Cape Point you should also read the interesting stories of Bartolomeu Diaz and Magellan to understand the history and meaning of 'Good Hope'. The... More

Cape of Good Hope is extremely attractive, it is one of its kind and a must visit place when you are in Cape town. They are lots of wild animals like monkeys, baboons, ostriches and the place is beautiful. They are lots of tourists in the place and one needs to go a bit early to avoid the crowd because... More

This place is just beautiful. Get there early as traffic can get bad and parking can get full. It's best to park on the Cape of Good Hope side, explore that for a bit, and then make the 45 minute hike over to Cape Point where the lighthouse is. It's beautiful out here. Just give yourself enough time to explore... More

It's a wonderful area to explore. Beautiful rugged coastline. Good hiking trails. A family of ostriches. The one thing we should have done was to get there earlier in the day so that we avoided the crowds. This park is very popular. There were maybe a dozen tour buses when we got there - so along with problems with parking,... More

Visit this area EARLY in the morning to avoid being overrun by bus loads of tourists all wanting a photo at the sign board . Without the hordes it is a spectacular part of the coast line and a great place to watch the sea birds and the power of nature . There are no toilets at this stop .
