The Cape was part of a tour.. First visited in 2016 and returned again in March. It was very windy, 30 knot winds. Despite the wind, hubby and I made the trek up to the lighthouse. Unfortunately they removed the signs to different cities with distance to travel. Too much graffiti. Why do people do that? The clouds covered the bay so visibility was poor. Our guide gave us history lesson about False Bay and explained why the name. If you never been to Cape Town, this is a must see.

Contrary to popular belief the Cape of Good Hope is not the southernmost point of the African continent. Instead, it is Cape Agulhas which we were not lucky enough to get to on our voyage.
However, our trip to the Cape of Good Hope and Table Mountain National Park was fantastic! It's worth the hike up the hill to the lighthouse and the flora and fauna are just wonderful to enjoy. I saw wild Zebra, Ostrich, Kudu and Spring Bok and a large female Baboon was hanging around or picnic area waiting for just the right morsel to appear. She did spy a nice man and child's ice cream, but they weren't giving it up and managed to evade her. After going through the garbage, she decided she was not happy with leftovers and promptly moved to the exit of the cafe where she managed to swipe a whole fresh lunch from a man's hand. Of course, he was stunned and not thrilled but as a rule of thumb goes you NEVER argue with a hungry Baboon and gracefully surrender your goods.
Highly entertaining and worth the time!

Did this tour on our last day in Cape Town. When we got there it was so windy. The views were nice. The best part was that we saw a baboon walking in the area.

As you approach the Cape the landscape changes and becomes more windswept. There is a queue to have your photo taken at the Cape of Good Hope sign. The funicular cuts out part of the walk up to the lighthouse and its stunning views.

I took a Cape Peninsular tour with African Eagle Tours which was excellent. We visited the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Point and the Penguin Colony with lunch in Simons Town. The Cape of Good Hope is a must see day trip when visiting Cape Town. It was extremely windy the day I went and you need to bring a jacket.

I felt obligated to visit the Cape of Good Hope and was glad that I did. It makes for a nice photography moment and photos are the best souvenirs. Go up to the lighthouse. Walk the trails and enjoy. It is beautiful here.

Is worth the drive and the views is amazing.
You are going to do alot of walking so put on your hiking shoes.
But please just note if there is loadshedding the flying dutchman funicular does not work you wil have to walk al the up to the light house and down again.
Also don't use the toilets there near the lighthouse it's very dirty and smells very bad.

Magnificent ocean views but other than that nothing really special apart from the sign written Cape of Good Hope where everyone poses for photos.
