Standing on the edge of a huge & diverse continent is almost unexplainable. What I know is that I have been so fortunate to have this experience. Where two oceans meet....very humbling & the purest air I have even breathed, as I commented to my partner whilst I smoked a Marlboro! . Simply wonderful

Always good to go down to the point on our visits to the cape. Very frustrating today. The road works are annoying as they are resurfacing the approach road to the restaurant area and there are long waits. Once again the funicular was not functioning. This has happened to us before. A bus service was in place to take you... More

About a 30/40 minutes drive from Cape Town you'll see the Indian and Atlantic oceans meeting. Scenic views and maybe you are lucky enough to see Baboons, ostriches, Elands and whales. There is a good restaurant Two Oceans and stores, of course. Then you can take the Funicular to Lighthouse or take the trail. As everywhere in Cape Town you... More

This is one place in SA not to be missed as you will have a great memory that you did visit where the cold and the warm ocean meet. if you are close to the see you will feel the coldness of the water just by the waves as the water sparkles on you. ps festive seasons may get too... More

The reserve is about a 40 minute drive from.Cape Town. This is a truly beautiful nature reserve with several hikes and bike trails. The cost is R125 pp if you do not have a Sanpark Wildcard. The walk to the Point is rather steep so wear sensible walking shoes. alternatively you can get a ride with the vanicular - R58... More

We enjoyed every view that we had as we went through the park pay booth. With the flowering foliage, grazing wild life in unexpected areas and the tranquility away from the lighthouse area, we enjoyed many hours in the park. The lighthouse area was busy but well organized with the cable car to the top of Cape Point. Great experience

Amazing natural place ! Must visit Cape of Good Hope at least once if you go to South Africa ... I'll suggest to walk to the top instead of taking the train, so you can better enjoy the beautiful scenery. It is a bit windy up so be prepared. But for me, the experience is worth the cost and the... More

Beautiful place. Is where the human being feel the power of the ocean and understands how small we are. You can walk the trail to the top of the mountain or take a train that takes you there. It's a crowded place, so don't worry, you won't be alone. Take with you a coat because is too windy up there...really... More
