We visited the Cape Light house viewing points on this trip and the Cape of Good Hope. Spectacular views to be had from the top platform. A lot of steep steps up to that point. Watch out for the baboons too. They are always hungry...More

The Cape peninsula is breathtaking. At the very tip is the Cape of Good Hope not to be confused with the more beautiful Cape Point. To be truthful besides the sign and a view of the sea there is not to much to see, but...More
