Overview

More
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.

Taking the funicular to the old lighthouse station is a must if the weather isn’t playing ball. However if you have time take a nice stroll 🚶‍♂️ up but do take a jacket as conditions can change quickly. Ensure you do the full walk as...More

Maybe we were lucky when we visited here, with only a coach load of people, a few having made their own way and of course our sightseeing bus (excellent way to travel), the area was peaceful. Picking your way through the sandy rocks, avoid being...More

Stunning part of the world. You could easily spend a few days here. Absolutely idillic scenery as well as the light house situated centrally. We got a tram up but you can walk too. Does get busy with parking but well worth the trip.

The Cape Point Nature Reserve never fails to amaze with its scenery and wildlife. The rugged cliffs with the light house are a must visit and seeing the shy eland adds to the experience, and the ever present baboons are entertaining and annoying.
