Cape Point Nature Reserve

About
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.

Safe driving, roads within reservation are well maintained, long stretch though, although easy to navigate GPS still covers the route, with boards were bigger, website prices and actual price were not the same

I have visited several times over the years - a stunning natural feature that I have always recommended to friends. However, it looked tired and unkempt this time and the R360 fee for anyone 12 and over visiting from overseas is ridiculous - that is US$100 for four of us visiting the location for an hour or so, not including the funicular. If you don't want people coming to visit - this is how you say so.

It was a fabulous opportunity to see the might ocean at the tip of Africa. We stopped at Cape Point and spent time at Cape of Good Hope. We saw wild ostriches and had a great hike with Cape Escape Tours

We did the trip in order to make the most of a windy day. The roads are maintained well and the maps helpful. Queues can be lengthy, so be sure to go early.

We visited Cape Point for the first time during our first trip to Cape Town. It won't be our last visit. While you can do the trip in a few hours, driving between the highlights, there is so much more to see and do. We paid a quick visit to the visitor's center. It is relatively small but informative. We drove to the parking lot for the lighthouse. My husband walked up to the top while our nine-year old son and I chose to take the funicular up. It only takes a few minutes. The views from the top are amazing. But the wind, at least the day we visited, is like nothing you've ever experienced. I was afraid my camera was going to fly out of my hands! It's something else. We then drove to the Cape of Good Hope which is at sea-level. The wind was pretty wicked there too. We saw a number of ostriches running around which was entertaining. Next time I'd like to do some of the hikes, particularly the Shipwreck Trail.

Have been there before but many years ago. The ruck rail is worth it. Don't forget to ask for pensioners rates if you are a pensioner

Been several years since I last visited the Cape Point attraction, overall was a good experience as we went there during a quiet period. Entrance fee was reasonable as an SA Citizen as too was the fanicular ride to the point for those feeling a little lazy. Views are spectacular and I would like to take more time to explore the whole park either by bike or hiking. Only disappointment was the bathroom facilities which were smelly and which had no hand soap especially during a pandemic. So plan ahead an take your own.

Hi. Thank you for your review. Please can you advise if this was the Ablution facility at car park area (Bottom station) or the Funicular facility at the upper station and we will forward to the relevant management team. Thank you!

Absolutely amazing, this nature reserve is truly breathtaking in every way. It offer historical sights aswell especially for tourists seeking more information about Cape Town. Hiking trails are not dificult but just be extra cautious of those Cape Town monkeys and always keep your food hidden.
