If you come to South Africa, you must drive the hour or so down the coast to see the Cape of Good Hope! We did and we saw so many beautiful sights along the way! Baboons, Elan, and a herd of Ostrich's! Don't miss it. The hiking trails here are spectacular!

Nature at its best. The climb to the top will let you watch the vast blue ocean at its best. The point where the two oceans meet is thrilling. The ship wreck site is another historical spot. The point at top is beautiful with cool wind. Overall the experience is worth it.

Such a great and spectacular location, beautiful drive. Allow plenty of time to explore the numerous vantage points and learn the significance of its history. Treacherous coastline, great to view the seals playing in the surf and some baboons and ostriches on/near the roadways

The park is a 1/2 hour drive from Simon's Town. Pro tip: If driving, use the M64 route to skirt in town traffic and enjoy a better view en route. This is an adventure well suited for self driving. Roads are clearly marked and well maintained. There are ample pull offs for picture taking at each attractive photo opportunity. The... More

I live in Cape Town, however i have many friends that visit Cape Town, and a visit to Cape Point is a must. Please find your way to the beach of Sighs, it is special and good for the soul.Look for the round rocks, build a little cairn, and think of loved ones.This beach has spiritual significance.
