No trip to Cape Town would be complete without a trip to Cape of Good Hope. Very spectacular coastline. Right up there with the Californian coastline in terms of mountains hitting the sea.

Enjoyed the second visit as had more time to explore and take time to sit and enjoy the views. Beautiful scenery and wildlife even saw a little tortoise. A very big tourist attraction so try and get there early to avoid the crowds

If a history buff, or just into blow-away drama, this landscape captures. It's a (multiple) view to die for (literally). Get here early or late because the crowds smoother, push and distract.

Baboons were fun, tram up to the top, careful with food as baboons will steal it. Lovely coastal views

Didn't research so wasn't aware of how much area there was to see and discover here. Saw so much wildlife but would have liked to have spent more time on beaches and doing walks
