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.

We took a trip with City Sightseeing Tours very good and well organised. We saw some wildlife in the park and really enjoyed the walk up to the lighthouse. The coast is rugged and wild which makes it so appealing to visit.

The Cape of Good Hope and its Nature Reserve are a must visit if you come to Cape Town. The scenery is spectacular, wildlife, beaches, this is Africa!

Cape point offers mountainous and such a scenic view! You can take a railway to the top and then walk up to the light house to see an amazing view of the oceans! Be sure to wear suitable footwear as the walk is challenging!

Seems to get a little busy with coaches but certainly worth a visit! We spent approx two hours here with the Sightseeing Bus - managed to fit in lunch, a walk to the lighthouse & over to the cape of Good Hope. Thoroughly enjoyed.

Hi. Liezel. The walk up is steep, but there are plenty of points to sit for a rest or to take pictures. If you want to eat there you will need allow a lot more time as the restaurant is very slow; we were told 45 minutes... More
