The drive to the Cape is wonderful in itself. Once at the Cape, the scenery is stupendous. The buildings close at 17h, including the funiculare which takes you up the hill to the lighthouse.

We visited the Cape of Good Hope as part of a private tour. There was a queue as we made our entrance, to the Nature Reserve, and the cost was around £8 per person. The weather certainly needs to be good to appreciate the view, and we only wish that we had more time to really appreciate the beauty of... More

Worthwhile seeing on a clear day, check weather forecast before seeing and Table Mountain. Photos do not always do the view justice!

We visited the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. The views, the fauna, flora and the walk top the top lighthouse was very enjoyable, the road inside the Reserve is being re-tarred so there is a bit of waiting time in-between.

Cape Point is a "must do" for any traveller to our shores. But please - don't rush it! If it's your first time, spend a day exploring the place. I'm always bemused by the tour busses whose passengers stream in to the curio shop, catch the funicular to the upper light house (not always....), rush down to the actual point... More

Fantastic national park with the very tip being well directed and accessible. Go up to the lighthouse but then come back down the steps to it (not all the way to the bottom), swing a sharp right by the gift shop etc and go walking down the side of the lighthouse to the very end. You can't get all the... More

Timing is everything on this journey. We left Cape town at 10am and it took 2 hours to get to the entrance kiosk. The traffic through the villages on false bay was horrendous and even after that it took us another 40 minutes in a queue from the road to the entrance kiosk. The entrance procedure is Dickensian with few... More

We took off early and arrived at 10am ! be later than this at your peril in high season ! It is very very popular. We went to the beach which is beautiful - Bumbles Bay ? white sand and warm seas We obviously went to the point and encountered a baboon who took our suncream and then through it... More

Fantastic. I would recommend bringing a jacket because of actual gale force winds. Also, the main lighthouse at the Cape Point (not the actual cape) is not the most southern point you can go to, you can take a small path just to the east of it and get further, basically about a 10min walk. I'd recommend making a whole... More
