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

It was great to stand here and watch the waves crashing on the rocks. There were seals lounging on the rocks. There is a trail to hike up for a different vantage point for those inclined for a more physical visit.

I love Cape Town! You can expect spectacular scenery on your long drives therefore best to hire a car and spend your days exploring the city.

We saw wild zebras and ostriches and lots of their newborns when driving in the Cape of Good Hope National Park... drive slowly and take this like a self-drive safari. You'll see more than expected.

Despite the wild cliffs around the lighthouse where all tourists go l love the walk from Cape of good hope to Cape Point the most. And in between go down the stairs to Diaz Beach. The whole trip Will take you about 90min and is ok for everyone in decent condition.

The drive from Cape Town out to the Cape of Good Hope is one of the most beautiful coastal highways in the world. It is in the same league as the Pacific Coast Highway of Northern California and Oregon and the Amalfi Coast of southern Italy. There is a observation point at Cape Point which is adjacent to the Cape... More
