If you have half a day to spare, do yourself a favour and make your way down to the most South-Western point of Africa, the Cape Point Nature Reserve, about 32 kilometers outside of Cape Town. Unspoiled, and beautiful at any time of the year, this is a wonderful place for a picnic, which we enjoyed on one of he... More

If you want to save some money and you have a group of people the best thing for you to do is to rent a car or minibus and go to cape of good hope. It is cheaper, way more fun and in top to that you can also really enjoy the trip. The fee usually costs under than 150... More

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
