You can’t come to SA and not visit Cape Point. Very well organised operation and quite quiet the day we visited. You can walk to the top or take the lazy option.Both are enjoyable. Enjoy this unique place!

The Cape Point Nature Reserve is simply far too expensive at over 300 rand just to visit the headland.

A must if you are in Cape Town, best to go when the weather is good. Allow 3/4 hours as there is a lot to see. Wear trainers as there can be a lot of walking. Make sure you walk up to the lighthouse for...More

The walk up to cape point is a pleasent hike. You can ride up on the cable car so that everone can go. Overlooking the ocean south gives you such an appreciation for the size of the worlds oceans.

It was absolutely wild. Ferocious winds that could easily take the car door off when you tried to open it. Difficult to walk or stand with the powerful gusts. Exhilarating beyond belief. The sea crashed away making spectacular waves breaking on the rocks. On a...More

My words alone would not do justice to the stunning beauty of this location, and would advise anyone to make this a bucket list holiday!

Hi sorry for the delay, there is transport almost to the top so I would say yes for the views but you wouldn’t be able to get right up to the lighthouse as that’s very narrow, steep and with steps. Hope this helps
