What a fabulous experience... Be warned, there are 144 steps to the top but the view is absolutely worth the climb. For me though, being so close to the lens was also a thrill. And afterwards, you can walk along the spectacular boardwalk along the...More

Despite the height and the steps this is a unique place to visit. The view is spectacular and the staff friendly and informative. Check up on opening times before you visit as it opens at 10 and closes for lunch.

Cute little coastal village. Here I want to retire one day. Many stairs to climb the lighthouse, but definitely worth the effort when you get up.

Quick stop to take in the scenery, marvel at the beauty of the Cape, snap a pic and then continue the drive to Cape of Good Hope.
