When we set off to go see the cape, I was honestly expecting just a pile of rocks and a sign. But the cape was so much more than that. In fact it--and the drive to get there--was one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. Every square foot offers a stunning vista of water, cliffs, and greenery.... More

Cape of Good Hope is an incredible place inside the National Table Mountain Park. Personally, I consider it the best spot in the park. The view at the top is terrific and the shades of blue of the sky and sea are beautiful. Be careful when you walk to reach the top! The ticket to go inside the park is... More

Such a lovely part of our country where the two oceans meet. There is an abundance of flora as well as birdlife and the baboons. It is advisable to dress for the elements as the wind is quite cold near the lighthouse vantage point.

Drive around and enjoy the wonderful views. Some nice hiking trails so take your time there and don't rush. Highly recommended :) If the relatively high entrance fee isn't good for you, you don't have to enter the park as the entire region is so beautiful to drive through.

If you're in Cape Town it's the best 1 day trip you can do. Round route around the cape with many stop - great views, short trekkings, colony of Penguins in Boulders. Fantastic!

Many people go to the Cape of Good Hope but don't walk to the end of the Cape! The walk is an easy 45 minute stroll and well worth it for the spectacular views and actually seeing the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. In August and Septmeber there is the added attraction of seeing the whales migration.... More

Just visit! When you arrive you can imagine what the navigators thought of cold winter nights. The escarpment entering the offshore. Another spot not to be missed. You can walk up to the top of the cape where the view is great.

Dec 31: Amazing! Superb views. Many have been confused that this place is the southern most tip of Africa. Sadly, it isn't. It is the most south western point of Africa. Nevertheless, the views are as beautiful. One can reach this place after entering the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Better to visit during the summer period. We had... More

One of the common misconceptions is that this is the farthest tip of Africa. It is not!! That was the first learning for me on my brief visit here. + Serene views. You can see whales if you get lucky! + Well organized to reach the top - Restricted till the Light house. - Too crowded
