“watch out for the baboons!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Great park. You really feel like you are at the most southern tip of Africa, although I was told it is not the most southern tip. Watch out for the baboons. They are bloody cheeky and grabbed my ice cream from my hands!! Well it makes for a fantastic story! I almost wet my pants. LOL

“Drive to Cape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Spectacular drive with brilliant sunshine. One of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world. Spent eartly morning taking boat out to the seal island. Stopped at chapman peak and saw whales offshore. Stopped and visited an ostrich farm where you can purchase very nice ostrich leather goods at very reasonable prices. The Cape of Good Hope was just magnificent. The roads through the park are very well maintained. Came back by way of the False Bay and viewed the penguins up close.

“Stunning; next stop Antarctica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Where 2 Oceans meet and the dramatic coastline winds away before your eyes; excellent restaurant and small funicular railway to the summit. Don't forget to stop off at Hermanus to go whale watching (assured sightings in the balmy SA winter). Also assured wildlife sightings are ostriches and baboons (but take care with these). The flowers are fabulous and the birds amazing. penguins too!

This is a popular spot, so if you really want to enjoy it, find out when it is least crowded and spend a little time there.

“Not to be Missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our day's drive to Cape of Good Hope. The scenery there was wonderful. One need not walk far from the carparks to enjoy the experience. It does get a bit crowded so best to go early.
