Views and trails here are breathtaking, weather permitting of course! We were very lucky that visibility was excellent. Beautiful landscape across Cape Point. What a wonderful thing Nature is! Enjoy!

The seascapes, views, and trails are magnificent. Period. We would like to come back and hike all of the trails that we saw. Seeing ostriches walking along the oceanfront was a fun surprise.

We drove from Cape Town and stopped at Boulders Beach on the way, but once you entered the nature reserve, you definitely feel like you are driving through serene, natural Africa... because you are! An ostrich came right up to our car window, baboons... More
