I have always wanted to go to the Cape of Good Hope - ever since reading about it in Junior High Social Studies. I was expecting the views to be stunning and they did not disappoint. I was not expecting the numerous baboons that we saw on the drive to and from the Cape. One family stopped their car and rolled down their windows to watch the baboons. A second later, a baboon jumped right through their window and into the car prompting the family to quickly evacuate. It was quite funny to watch!

Must see! The park is beautiful and the lighthouse view is breathtaking! Two Oceans sushi was wonderful as well!

We visited the Cape of Good Hope on a full day Cape Point Tour. We enjoyed driving through the park and seeing wildlife and the local flora.
The views from the lighthouse are spectacular and we enjoyed hiking up to the top. Some of the lookout points before the lighthouse were even more spectacular than the views from the top of the hill.
We were very lucky to spot a whale in the bay while we had a light lunch after our climb! Definitely worth the ride from Cape Town!

Not many tour operators do this. At least not on the half day tours. Must do if you're driving yourself. But there's likely to be a long queue for the snap.

The drive was fantastic, rented a car at the hotel for the day and drove down the east side stopping to visit the penquin colony and back up the west side.
The scenery in great with a ton of stops for excellent food.
