It was a windy & foggy day when we made our way to Cape Point. But it was lovely. Definitely worth a visit, and the trek to the Lighthouse. It can get very windy, so dress for wind, I was wearing a rather short dress, and I was constantly worried about it, which took a way from the overall experience... More

As South Africans we have to look at our country in awe. Cape Town, has the best of both worlds. Cape Point, is such a beautiful place. The scenic walk, is so worth it. No wheel chair access. Not suitable for elderly, or too young though. Watch out for the baboons.

The Cape of Good Hope can be reached from Cape Point through a marked track that takes about 1.5 hours to return. The trek takes you to the very top of the Cape of Good Hope, instead of the signboard at the car park below. It's very windy at the top!

Nearly got blown off our feet. Extremely windy but well worth the trip. Managed to get photos taken at the sign before several coaches appeared and crowded the place. On the way out of the park the traffic jam went on for ages. Get there early, and take a warm jacket.

What a wonderful place ! We climbed to the top peak, it was fun ! The views are worth the climb, the baboons were just chased off ! But we did see a few on our way out.

I actually thought it was the southern point of Africa, but Cape Algulhas is actually that and way more spectacular. I was sort of dissapointed. The drive through the park is pretty, but as we did not wish to climb a rock, we just drove to the sign took a couple of pictures (also of the cargus of a dead... More

It took me like a half and hour to arrived from Sea Point. I prefer to rent a car and when I got there I was really glad because if you go in tour you'll have limited time to look around. It's was windy and sunny day and the color of the water and views were really amazing! There are... More

It was one of the things on our bucket list. We also happened to see a beached whale which was sad but we were told it was a very rare phenomenon...

We loved our trip to the cape. We did the walk over the cape, which was a really easy hike. Felt very safe and secure. Views are fantastic!

Cape of Good Hope, a rocky promontory at the Southern End of Cape Peninsula, Western Cape Province, South Africa. It was a great day tour with nice weather!~
