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.

Very windy day but you didn't notice. We traveled in and out in a private car, getting to see the varying wildlife and vistas. Worth the effort, even on a busy day.

With winds that can knock you down, this is an incredible - & incredibly beautiful - place. Take the funicular to the top, but watch out for baboons that steal food right out of your hands.

Drove down from Cape Town. A charge is levied for entering the reserve but the expanse and the views are worth it. No extra cost for visiting Cape of Good Hope. We saw our first ostrich leisurely crossing the road while driving. A "tram" runs...More
