“Just wonderful....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Don't just go to the lighthouse lookout. There is a path which takes you further out towards the old lighthouse which is definitely worth doing. The round trip walk only takes about 30 mins. Also visit Cape of Good Hope in the park. And don't forget to visit one of the baboon colonies, there is one in Buffels Bay.

“Must Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point were incredible. Impossible to describe in words, you absolutely have to be there to see this historical location where the Indian and Atlantic oceans merge. Very convenient walk to the top, and several opportunities for hours of hiking with beautiful views.

“Worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Approx 8.5 rand per person to access the Cape Park area and 4.5 to access the rail car up to Cape point, well worth a visit to view the scenery and the meeting of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.

“You can't miss it!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Drive in to the park and drive around from the cape of good hope to the Flying Dutchman cable car to climb to the light house
Don't rush it through or you miss the spotting of the wild life ( springbok, austruche , zebra, and beware of the baboons going around too)
