Owner description: At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

Cape Point Nature Reserve is a must for any visit to Cape Town. Head south past Sea Point, Camps Bay and Hout Bay to enjoy the stunning Chapman's Peak Drive, and then through Kommetjie and the usually misty Misty Cliffs to reach the entrance. Once in the park, take it slow. You could easily spend four hours meandering along the side roads before getting to the 'Point'. These side trips offer stunning floral scenery in winter and spring, as well as opportunities to see baboon, bontebok, zebra, eland, ostrich and more. Look out for tortoises on the road - if you see one, you're likely to see several. There are many hikes along the coastline, and if your preference is to avoid the bustle of tourists pouring out of the busses at the 'main attraction', you can expect plenty of peace and quiet on these trails. The shipwreck trail is well worth doing, and look out for dolphins if you venture out to Venus pool.

The drive itself from Cape Town to Cape Point is worth it! Beautiful scenery and great roads! The Nature Reserve Park is well kept, beautiful sights and all facilities work well. Watch out for some baboons along the drive!
