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 rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

Take a day to do this roundtrip trough the park. Very nice viewings, different spots which are worth to visit. It will take you about a day to drive all the way trough the park.

We took a private tour to Cape point. We hiked up the mountain at the Cape of Good Hope then went over to Cape Point -- both offered great viewpoints. Would recommend a private tour or your own car so you can spend as much...More

The views are amazing all the way down the peninsular. The walk up to the lighthouse was taxing for our ageing legs but there is the alternative funicular ride. The walk back was easy. A must visit if in Cape Town.

We used a scheduled tour off season and ended up the only ones on the tour. "Abe" our driver very knowledgeable and good conversation and company. We saw wildlife not expected and running commentary for the whole trip. Thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

That has to be one of the top panorama views I've seen in my life. Absolutely stunning on a good day. The walk to the light house is really fun so is the funicular. Must visit if you're in the area!
