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.

Great Day Trip
Jul 2021
We had a driver take us, saw Lynx, Elands, and more. Packed picnic lunches and enjoyed some light hiking and the scenery. Great day trip for sightseeing and hiking.

Worth the Trip!

Just 100% amazing views here! I have never been and was not even sure what I was going to expect. But wow!
It says on the brochure one day isn’t enough to see everything and for once I feel the brochure got it right. Nobody needs my little review to say it’s perfect but it is!
The only sad part was due to covid the restaurant was not functioning on the day - totally understandable but still sad.

I really like Cape Point, its at the end of the peninsuala, so get ready for some stunning views and there is also an serene beach at the pathway which is really good! The place however is a bit inaccesable (there is entrance at the beginning of the park) by transit so you should arrange something, but when done I think its well worth a trip actually. I love the fact that you can see both seas (altough you do not see much a difference but its more the feeling) and there are places to have food/drink here too. Be aware though: its very popular so on an crowded day its packed and you may not like that, so better go during quieter times as trough the week.

Quirky hidden gem off the beaten track.

Stopover at THE SCONE SHACK on the way to Cape Point Nature reserve. You won’t be sorry..... such a quirky little gem of a place with delish carrot cake and home made ice tea. Friendly service and delightful piglets roam the farm. A photographers paradise!

My back yard!

I absolutely love this little piece of heaven. We often go on the weekends, drive, walk and spend countless hours watching the incredible birdlife, wildlife, and changes of seasons. The fauna and flora are a highlight for me. We also often swim along the coastline, you get wonderful cosy little private beaches where you can enjoy the turquoise water on a hot summers day! We always pack our own picnic basket and bring our own drinks. When picking a spot to picnic, please be aware of the Chacma Baboons, they are opportunists, so will take any opportunity you give them. It's your responsibility to make sure you don't let them bug you. There is lots of space to throw your litter away, and when leaving please make sure you don't leave any food behind. Feeding the Baboons is a very cruel thing to do.

It's a drive via Chapman's Peak. There is a charge person and it's not cheap. There is an additional charge for the cable cart.

It's a nature reserve, and with many flora to see on the way. Their is a curio shop and beautiful views.

One will see families of baboons on the way back.

Underrated excursion!!
Jan 2021 • Family
Very affordable national park strip. Beautiful nature scenery and historical sights. The lighthouse hike is family friendly and easy with a save and well built walkway. Less than 20min hike to the Lighthouse. Extraordinary views from the top!
