“Make time to get here”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

Likes: The views, the space, the clean air and water, the animals.

Also very easy to get around and see things.

Dislikes: Baboons too "friendly"

“Nice spot, well developed”
Reviewed December 23, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch on a day tour of the peninsula. The restaurant was excellent - good seafood as you would expect! We took the funicular up to the point itself while our two teenage sons walked. They arrived only 5-10 minutes after we did so the walk is not particularly challenging.

Unless you trek out to the lighthouse on the end of the point, there is not a huge amount to see or do at the top but it is a beautiful spot and well worth the effort to get there.

“A must visit!”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Stunning coastline at the Most South Westerly point in Africa. The walk to the lighthouse is a bit of an effort, but the views from up there are stunning.

“A must-do but a little disappointing”
Reviewed December 20, 2013

This review is just for Cape Point itself, not the greater park.
The parking area is well set out and has usual shops, loos and cafe. The point can be VERY windy. Be warned. The walk up is OK and there are a few look out points. We walked to the top lighthouse and wanted to walk further but the wind was raging. Prices in the gift shop are relatively high. The walk across to the Cape of Good Hope though - that's definitely 5 stars.

“Astounding views”
Reviewed December 19, 2013

Quite scary ascending up to the lighthouse, but well worth it once you reached the top, fabulous views, a must do if you are in the vicinity.
