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.

This tour was full of marvelous vistas and the natural sights were breath taking. The baboons certainly love to hang around hoping for careless tourists leaving food unattended. They are bold enough to snatch from you. The park if natural terrain and many native animals roam uninhibited.

Breathtaking in many ways. The funicular helps get you up but not to the top. We hiked the bottom trail to the end where the two oceans meet. It's not strenuous if you're fairly fit but you'll know all about it if you're not because of the steep uphill and stairs. It doesn't take long though. Be prepared for cold... More

Cape Point accompanied by Cape Horn is surely among the few Cape's a traveller's got see. Next to its historical relevance ist the Cape simply blessed with such natural beauty and spectacular views that every trip to South Africa would simply not be complete without a visit here. Awesome flora and fauna included - charge your phone's battery in advance... More

Cape point is an amazing nature reserve. The drive there from cape town is along the Indian ocean and is absolutely beautiful. When you arrive at the reserve it will cost a bit of money to get in but definitely worth it! driving through the park is beautiful and

The place was crowded like any other tourist attraction. Watch out for the baboons and don't mess with them. Those critters have sharp teeth and like to steal your stuff, and if it's just a water bottle. The hike down to Cape Point took about 30 mins and went over rocks and boulders. It was pretty windy and we had... More

The lines to the funicular was very long, but the walk up the hill was quite doable also with youngish children so it didn't matter. To get down again the lines were much more manageable. Lots of people there, to be expected on a public holiday. We had to queue for quite a bit to get into the park as... More

Awesome and beautiful Place! Once you get to the top you will be surrounded by Baboons, very clever and tricky little animals! They like to steal so watch out for your bags, cameras, glasses! When you there also visit the beach on the way back!
