It's a 90 minute round trip walk from Cape Point to Cape of Good Hope, with nice views and not too difficult, or there is a car park at the foot of Cape of Good Hope itself. far fewer crowds and worth the effort to get away from them.

This is a must visit spot in Cape! We went with a guided tour and were given 15 minutes to take pictures with the sign. If time allows, I highly recommend one to follow the trail and climb the big rock nearby. I would imagine the view of the ocean from a hill top would be amazing! There is always... More

We just stopped over but we have not walked up to the top as we have not have enough time. It is worth walking up as there were many good reviews about it.

Of course no visit toCape Town is complete without a visit to the top of the world renowned table mountain. António de Saldanha was a Castilian-Portuguese 16th-century captain. He was the first European to set anchor in what is now called Table Bay, South Africa, and made the first recorded ascent . The views are literally breathtaking and the national... More

This endpoint of Cape Good Hope is worth to visit. A lot of splendid views over the two oceans and rocks. It is a national park of SA. In case you plan to visit more NP in SA be aware that it might be cheaper to buy a so called SAP Wild Card. They do not tell you at the... More
