“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2014

When I finally got to see the Cape of Good Hope, I was impressed. A beautiful scene of water and rocks. It s marked with a sign around which tourists will gather to have their picture taken. You can walk up the cliff face towards the light house if you want to, or you can just at about sea level and enjoy the views. Not to be missed.

“loads of animals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We saw ostriches, eland, and other grazing animals, and one male ostrich walked beside our car! The scenery is very beautiful. A must see!

“Awesome!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

We saw ostriches grazing beside the Atlantic Ocean! It's a long hike up to the lighthouse, so if you aren't up for it, take the tram car. But the view is wonderful. Make sure you go down to the cape, where the sign is, for a photo op. The waves are huge!

“Unique Place on the Earth”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

It was well worth the bus trip from Capetown. Saw beautiful coastal areas along the way, along with baboon and other wildlife. The trails around the cape have some challenging elevation in places but are otherwise easy to walk. The view at the top is definitely worth the effort!
