You need to come to Cape of Good Hope to see the end of African Continent. The place is beautiful and full of history. You can see the crosses from Portuguese famous explorer that passed through Cape of Good Hope to and from India.

You can access the point via a tram or on foot. I would recommend taking the funicular up and walking down. Beware of the apes and your property but it is well worth it for the views over the sea. As with a number of...More

Cape of Good Hope + Constantia itinerary help. Is it possible to do a full day self drive trip to the following locations? - Muizenberg - Kalk Bay - Simon's Town - Boulders Beach - Cape Point - Cape of Good Hope - LUNCH at Constantia (La Colombe) - Kommietije - Noordhoek - Chapman's Peak Drive - Hout Bay Please advise also on the suggested sequence? We want to avoid rushing from one location to another, any pit stops that I could remove from the itinerary? Thanks!

We will be staying at the v & a waterfront before moving on to Hermanus, thought about taking in the cape of good hope on the way. How long would it take using m6 for camps bay & down the Atlantic coast as far as is possible then coming back up from the point via boulders beach & taking in false bay before joining the n2 & heading south east for Hermanus?
