At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of...more
We spent 5 hours in the reserve but could have easily spent a couple of days (at least I could have, maybe not my husband!). We were lucky to have a sunny and relatively calm spring day and the views were spectacular. We walked up...More
Take the vernacular up to top of Lighthouse and then hike all the way down to the Cape Point. Beautiful views and a lovely hike - pretty easy/moderate hike. Saw elan, ostrich, baboons all along the path. The ostrich had baby chicks so did a...More
Being pedantic, that this not where two oceans meet (that is Cape Agulhas) however that does not detract from the lovely costal hikes in the Reserve, we walked for 3-4 hours along the coast and saw no more than 3 other people. There are several...More
Must-see when in the Capetown area. You pay entrance and can freely drive around the Cape Point Nature Reserve. If you have enough time, try to park your car and walk from the lighthouse to Cape Point (and back).
Cape Point Nature Reserve is highly recommended for a half day relaxing tour. There is so much to do, you need at least half a day. Buffelsbaai should also not be missed but be aware or baboons damaging cars. Don’t leave your car out of...More

Hi Fredrick - parts of this place might be wheelchair accessible. You’ll have to confirm with the website. For example, the funicular to the light house might be wheelchair accessible - don’t remember seeing signs. But once you get off the funicular there are steps to get to the light house. No ramp.
You can drive right up to the sign for the Cape of Good Hope. That area once you park should not be a problem. The rest are trails for hiking.
Hope that helps!

Hi. Liezel. The walk up is steep, but there are plenty of points to sit for a rest or to take pictures. If you want to eat there you will need allow a lot more time as the restaurant is very slow; we were told 45 minutes... More
Hi. Liezel. The walk up is steep, but there are plenty of points to sit for a rest or to take pictures. If you want to eat there you will need allow a lot more time as the restaurant is very slow; we were told 45 minutes wait for a sandwich to be made! Suggest you take a picnic rather than waste time.
