Well worth the trip,, it is some distance from the City, but its worth it, The scenary, the drive and the history, make up for the distance. I personally felt the prices should be decreased buy at least 50%, especially if you just want to hike in the nature reserve!

One of the most beautiful rides I've ever taken, and at the tip of the continent! Make sure you leave your bags in your car and do not carry any food! I got mugged by a baboon. Luckily it only threw everything on the ground as I wasn't carrying any food on me. Stole my mints though...

We went on a lovely drive down the western coast of the Cape from Cape Town. The scenery is magnificent and passes by a number of picturesque villages. There were a number of animal sightings as well - mostly baboons and ostriches. At the end of the road is the obligatory sign saying that it was The Cape of Good... More

Amzing place, especially if you are a history and geography buff. Winter is very windy and hence cold, but no lines! Summer is LOOOONG lines, so plan accordingly

A couple of us went sight seeing at the end of our business trip, and we wanted to see the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point (another review). The Cape of good hope is a great scenic stretch, and provides awesome picture opps. It was very windy and chilly when we visited, but I think the weather also helped... More

This place is highly recommended for everyone. Facilities are well maintained, but pricy for the average South African.

This has to be one of the world's most scenic stretches of coastline, and you get to take in two of the world's great oceans at once. The Cape of Good Hope is stunning, with wonderful vegetation, rocky outcrops and beautiful round boulders on the beach. ostriches, baboons and seals can be seen in the area. Cape Point is another...

Lovely spot. Historic area. Nice to walk around. Great photo ops. Tram ride takes you near the top. Lots of steps.

A visit to the Cape of Good Hope is a must do when at Cape Town. Amazing landscape. But be careful with the baboons, and, even on summer, the wind is strong and cold over there. On the way there (or on the way back to Cape Town), it's a very a good idea to go through the Chapman's Peak... More

This is a truly beautiful place with animals and wonderful scenery. We saw Elland, Ostrich, Seals and lovely scenery. The roads are good and the restaurant at the Cape Point is truly amazing for a place so far from major towns. It is just irritating that it costs R110 each to get in and then another R55 to travel up... More
