A lovely area that has wonderful view areas and places to sit and relax with the family amongst the animals. Great for Bicycle rides as well

“Not the highlight of South Africa”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Being in cape point is nice due to the idea that the two oceans meet, other than that, there was not really somehting very special about it.

“Ocean Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

Leave the food in your vehicle. Just bring your camera and a bottle of water. A couple got attacked and lost their all their stuff down the cliff because they were flaunting food out in front of the Baboons… not a smart idea. Also there really is no need to take the tram. It was a 15 minute walk up. We walked up and took the tram down because of the baboons around the people. The walk itself was interesting with all the wildlife and lots of lizards sunning themselves makes you want to do the same. I really enjoyed myself. The trail to complete around is quicker than it mentions on the board. Spectacular views with sounds of the ocean hitting the empty beaches and cliff sides. In some spots I wish I could’ve just sat and stared out for hours on end. Wish there were more signs posted about the history of the point.

“BEST place in all of Cape Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I'm not sure what can be better than Cape Point - it may be the BEST PLACE in the UNIVERSE! It has the most breathtaking views I've ever seen in my life. I wish I could write more but I'm speechless! Just go!

Beautiful ocean views. Be sure to watch for the wild ostriches along the way. A good spot for pictures.
