You might have the wrong web address. This is it.... metrorail.co.za/TimeTables/WesternCape/CT_ST…
You have been given the link to Metrorail but were not explained that you will only get as far as Simons Town with the train. To get to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope, there is not other means of getting there. You can not walk because it is to far and there is no public transportation frm Simons Town to Cape Point.
The 2 options that you have from Cape Town to do this for a day trip is via a group tour or you can hire a driver/guide and vehicle for the day and explore all the places along this route. You can make use of the train from Cape Town until Simons Town and will only be able to explore the penguins and Simons Town itself for the day, but that will be it.
All the best

Hiring a small car may be your cheapest way, it is a straightforward drive and you can just stop when you like.
Thanks all. Has anyone took a roundtrip taxi from Simons to Cape Point? Will that kill our budget?
