We drove to go to cape of good hope. Wow was it beautiful. Views and sights were well worth it. Great hiking opportunities too. Long line to get in and a bit pricier than I thought but still worth it

We spent 5 hours in the reserve but could have easily spent a couple of days (at least I could have, maybe not my husband!). We were lucky to have a sunny and relatively calm spring day and the views were spectacular. We walked up...More

Spectacular sights, good hikes that are optional for more spectacular views - highly recommended! Loved the Cape or Good Hope and Cape Point in particular!

Must-see when in the Capetown area. You pay entrance and can freely drive around the Cape Point Nature Reserve. If you have enough time, try to park your car and walk from the lighthouse to Cape Point (and back).

The reserve is beautiful and well organized, you will probably see some animals and get a good view of the ocean from lots of mountains and viewing points, entrance fee Is about 130–150R for adults .
