Many people go to the Cape of Good Hope but don't walk to the end of the Cape! The walk is an easy 45 minute stroll and well worth it for the spectacular views and actually seeing the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. In August and Septmeber there is the added attraction of seeing the whales migration.... More

Just visit! When you arrive you can imagine what the navigators thought of cold winter nights. The escarpment entering the offshore. Another spot not to be missed. You can walk up to the top of the cape where the view is great.

Dec 31: Amazing! Superb views. Many have been confused that this place is the southern most tip of Africa. Sadly, it isn't. It is the most south western point of Africa. Nevertheless, the views are as beautiful. One can reach this place after entering the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Better to visit during the summer period. We had... More

One of the common misconceptions is that this is the farthest tip of Africa. It is not!! That was the first learning for me on my brief visit here. + Serene views. You can see whales if you get lucky! + Well organized to reach the top - Restricted till the Light house. - Too crowded

I really enjoyed my trip to South Africa! From Cape Town takes you around an hour an a half get there. The whole trip is beautiful, the landscapes you see, the environment, the possibility to see wild monkey around you all the time... Just take a look of some of my pics! Go go go 😀

Quite breathtaking to be honest, the place is crowded but definitely worth it. We didn't see any baboons, which is ok since they try to steal your food!

While Cape of Good Hope is pretty, it is very crowded, particularly next to the signage. If you're looking to get a photo with it, be prepared to line up and wait for 15-30 minutes. Instead, just walk up a little to the large rocks and get one there. Also, look out for ostriches, baboons, alpacas - nice to see... More

The beauty and magnificence of the Atlantic Ocean, The National Reserve and Mountains of Cape Town ~ all come together at the The Cape of Good Hope making it a surreal experience. Recommend dressing warm as it is very windy especially for kids and the elderly.Hats will fly away so hold on tight! There isn't any walking involved since the... More

The trip to the Cape was interesting . We saw baboon families and ostrich . The scenery is repetitive compared to the other areas in South Africa until you reach the end . The winds were high and the ocean spectacular . The highlight of the trip was taking pictures against the backdrop of the mountains and ocean . You... More
