Meh, the Cape of Good Hope is not visually stunning like Cape Point is. You may see wild ostriches and baboons about which is neat, the shore is very rocky & honestly not much to see aside from the sign.

It's an amazing place. Luckily, when we visited it was not very crowded. We could take lot of pictures. You can take Flying Dutchman Funicular (Tram) to reach the Light House.

It was a very scenic drive and a great way to stretch the legs, taking the short hike which offered wonderful views. The hike meanders uphill but it is not a difficult ascent. Staff were helpful.

Antipope, tortoise, baboons and ostrich to be found, with beautiful wild flowers rugged coastline. Spectacular. Don't under estimate the size and distances involved, or the strength of the wind, which can be fierce. The spit of land that is cape of good hope is spectacular,...More

Getting up to Cape Point (vs being down at the sign) is very different. It's beautiful down by the sign, and there is a nice hike up to the lighthouse, but outside of taking a picture here, I would suggest just visiting the lighthouse. Most...More
