“A dream come true!”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

Having studied the Capes in history, I was over the moon to be finally here. The drive along the National Park is fine (roads are well maintained) and then you arrive. We climbed to the lighthouse at Cape Point then drove around to the Cape of Good Hope. There are buses that can whizz you up to the lighthouse as well if mobility is limited. Not overly commercialised which was a great relief. Photo taken at The Sign - everyone politely queued & waited for their turn!
Well worth the trip & the most breathtaking scenery if you travel down through Chapmans Peak!

“More fantastic....”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

not much more to say really. It's simply "a must do", along with Table Mountain when in the Cape area. You'd be downright silly not to!

“Great site to visit!”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We really enjoyed visiting the Cape of Good Hope. A must do for everyone. It was quite windy when we were there although that is one thing that makes it an amazing place.

“A must, but not a lot to see”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

I guess it is a must to visit the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point if you have made it all the way to South Africa. But don´t over expect this destination. We found the drive from Cape Town is what it really is all about. Take the left route down and then make your way back on the right route back to Cape Town. A place to visit on your tour is Hout Bay.

“A place to visit”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

i like this place, but it is very busy and you need to take time to take a picture at the right place. Try to come before 10.00am or 4.00pm.
Spend time to discover the flowers and wild animals
