A great place to visit, just to be pictured with the iconic signboard. It was VERY windy while we were there, and we saw many ostriches near the point, which was amazing and interesting.

This is a must if you want to find yourself looking out towards Antarctica.

Taking in the combination of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans was awesome.

A beautiful place.

The drive was beautiful we stopped at boulders beach and saw penguins they are so cute - so small - then on the way back up we saw lots of baboons! The views were beautiful

Cape of good hope has a lot of meaning but when you're there, it is actually not more than a small pavement with a round about to go back beside the cracking ocean waves. The feeling of being at the end of Africa is there tough.

A pleasure to visit this iconic location and to get the mandatory photo of the sign. Our tour guide says this is the most photographed sign in SA and I can imagine that to be true. On the day we visited the weather was REALLY windy so it was pretty cool and blustery but nevertheless a great place to visit and one to tick off the mandatory visiting spots.

Nothing there other than the sign with all the facilities actually at Cape Point but nevertheless important to stop here.
