I know it is not a southern tip of Africa but it certainly feels like it. It is the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula instead. You feel like you finally got to some unusual and... read more

Got to the gate to get into the National Park and fortunately arrived early enough to beat the queue. A national monument but the road was discussing. A Sunday and a traffic nightmare with a stop go controlling a single lane road. Not a very good look for international visitors.

I know it is not a southern tip of Africa but it certainly feels like it. It is the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula instead. You feel like you finally got to some unusual and amazing end of the world. Traditionally that was a place where both oceans came together but scientists decided that the southernmost point is Cape... More

We came here as part of a private day tour and could not get over how absolutely beautiful it was. We took so many pictures and just enjoy the lovely scenery. We were only there for about an hour but could've spent all day taking photos and hiking around.

The Cape of Good Hope requires effort to climb it. Even though it isn't thawt high, the final sprint up the stairs are quite steep, which does take away a lot of energy. When I got to the top, there was a pole in the middle, however it was full of people's signatures and advertisements graffitied earlier on. The view... More

Great place to visit and definitely go to the top. The view is amazing and if you walk you get to view it for much longer but you need to be fairly fit. Pack a picnic and spend the day at one of the many viewpoints. We had a strong wind but it was still worth while.

Also known as the Cape of Storms. This desolate landscape is also a nature reserve, home to many varieties of antelope and other beautiful fauna and flora. Well worth a visit to the lighthouse viewpoint. It is quite a climb, but the panoramic view of the southern ocean is well worth it.

Well worth a visit on a good-weather day! Make use of the free entry during a week in September when Parks are opened to the public gratis. Entry fees are often beyond the pockets of many Capetonians. Curio shops are too repetitive and need some injection of more original arts and crafts.

Such a beautiful piece of earth. Go early and spend the day. Take a back pack and do the hikes. It is well worth the drive.
