Wonderful to experience the force of nature. One minute sun was shining, the next, we are surrounded by mist. Bring a few layers to keep warm.

Visited as part of a tour and not disappointed. the funicular railway took us to the lighthouse but we decided to walk down enjoying the views. We also talk the walk to the cape point which was very steep but once again afforded great views.

Wrap up warm when you go to this park. it's a bit of a drive from Cape Town centre, but so worth the visit. The wind is very strong and cold, but the views are stupendous. We also saw wild ostricht and loads of baboons...More

We visited the park with moderate expectations and were blown away as we made our way up to the top of the lookout point. What a walk! The views are outstanding, a photo opportunity at every corner. Don’t miss the park!

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
