If you have time plan this as a day outing. After enjoying the trip to the lighthouse and the Cape of Good Hope you can then explore the remainder of the Reserve. Pack a picnic to enjoy at the picnic area below the De Gama cross. Just keep an eye open for baboons even though there were only Ostriches on... More

Well the wind certainly blew the day we spent at the park but it failed to spoil the beauty of the park. Visibility from the lighthouse was between clouds rolling in. Once again found entrance fees very reasonable. Not to be missed.

Surprised by how exciting and atmospheric this remote place felt. People from all over the world waiting their chance for a quick photo behind the board saying Cape of Good Hope. Great spirit and very very hard to stay standing in the gale force winds. Very clean toilets too which has been the case all around the Cape area.

We had a guide for a day so took a drive to the Cape and then to Stellenbosch. The Cape is gorgeous with stunning water and cliff views. It gave us a chance to stretch our legs en route to the lighthouse after being on safari for 10 days. No sooner had our guide told us not to eat anything... More

The Cape of Good Hope is an historical point that really desserve to be seen by people interested in history and geography. The old and the new lighthouses. A short walk (40 minutes into the bush), a traditional picture, etc. It is only a couple of hours from Cape Town and the trip is very pleasant.

I enjoyed Cape Point and the Cape of Good hope. The best part, for me, was walking the hiking trail from the Cape of Good Hope parking lot to the lighthouse and back down again. Many people who hiked only from the Cape Point parking lot to the lighthouse were complaining and huffing and puffing so that is likely enough... More

Saw Baboons and Ostrichs on the way to the point. A good climb up the stairs to the light house. Don't do it if you have bad knees, take the sky lift.

Never dreamt of such spectacular and magnificient ocean surfs and view as the ones we experienced in the Cape of Good Hope. With 30 foot waves and swells that crash into the rocky shores exploding like maelstorms, the sea gulls and cormorants on the rocks be really strong. Being the most southerly point on the African continent, this is truly... More

We drove from Cape Town to Cape Point along the coastal road & even the drive itself was absolutely fantastic. The Cape of Good Hope Natural Reserve which contains the Cape Point, the world's most south-western point, has so many beautiful sights that it's difficult to put in words. The Funicular is also absolutely worthwhile. My recommendation is to make... More
