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

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

Spectacular sights, good hikes that are optional for more spectacular views - highly recommended! Loved the Cape or Good Hope and Cape Point in particular!

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).

The reserve is beautiful and well organized, you will probably see some animals and get a good view of the ocean from lots of mountains and viewing points, entrance fee Is about 130–150R for adults .

I strongly recommend all visitors to Cape Town to visit Cape Point. There are many animals and birds; a wonderful view of the ocean, and it is the Southwestern most point of Africa

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
