Excellent 2 days in the wilderness seeing animals and the raw sea line. Also amazing to think this is the furthest tip of Africa. You would miss out by not seeing this.

We had to wait quite long before we could go in because there was a queue at the entrance so we had thought that the park would be really busy. But that was not the case. Naturally there were a lot of people near cape point but it was not too bad. We took the train up to the lighthouse... More

It’s a must do to get your picture taken at the sign! (Even though it can be a bit crowded to get that photo opportunity.) The rocks and waves are beautiful to watch. Scenic drive to get there from Cape Town.

We have not been at Cap Point for a very long time, and was again stunned by the sheer beauty of this impressive site. It was very windy, but that did not hamper the experience. Luckily we had a Green Card, otherwise it is quite an expensive affair. Entrance is R 110-00 and the ons has to pay R 55... More

Very nice views of the Cape of Good Hope and of False Bay. Awesome perspectives with rolling waves and steep inclines. Quite a number of animals populate the area as well. We saw baboons, ostriches, birds and antelopes. It is really worth a visit and the way to the Cape is spectacular too traveling through many beautiful areas, mountain sides... More

Bear in mind there will be people all around if you go during the day, but it's still beautiful. Not the southern most point in SA, but pretty close! Gorgeous area and make sure you drive over to the lighthouse as well if you're down that far already.

Steep drive to get there but well worth it. The views of the oceans and mountains are breathtaking. You can access Cape of Good Hope by walking or via a trolley (small fee). Note that after the trolley you still have to walk to top to get to lighthouse. So wear comfortable shoes. From there you can see Cape Point... More

The drive to the cape was outstanding and then it is exceeded by arriving at the Cape. A drive from Cape Town down the west side of the cape and back along the east is rewarding. The urban area slowly gives war to rugged coastline. For miles development has defied the steep slopes with homes hanging from above with climb... More

I never knew that cape of good hope would be that beautiful. When you go up the mountain you get a sublime feeling all over you. Seeing the ocean, the mountain, and the cliff, you get speechless. Cape of good hope is a bit far from the city center, but it's worth the ride, especially that you get a scenic... More
