Southwesternmost point of Africa

What an amazing experience to be standing at the most southern western point in Africa. You feel like an early explorer. You are surrounded by a rocky beach.

We had close to 2.5 hours before the park shut when we entered the Cape of Good Hope Reserve but it was ample enough time to see the Cape of Good Hope, Lighthouse and take a small 15 min walk around the lighthouse. Due to paucity of time, we decided to take the "Flying Dutchman" Funicular (tram) to the top... More

You need to come to Cape of Good Hope to see the end of African Continent. The place is beautiful and full of history. You can see the crosses from Portuguese famous explorer that passed through Cape of Good Hope to and from India.

The baboons will steal your food. They got into a car through an open window opened a bag and stole some food. The sign was surrounded by tourists couldnt even get a look. The area is beautiful though and the walk further up to the lighthouse is great

As we were in Cape Town we had to do the tourist route to Cape Point and here the Cape of Good Hope. It was a lovely day and the views across the open water were lovely. Getting there across the reserve was a nice drive where we found 12 Ostriches and a family of baboons. On the way back... More

We visited the Cape of Good Hope during the beginning of winter, in the third week of May 2017 in a group. It was an indescribable feeling and moment of being there at the south-western most end of Africa, a place which must have been passed through by the famous Portugese explorers Barthalomeo Diaz and Vasco da Gama centuries ago....

We came to this location as part of our Cape Peninsula Day Tour. Enjoyed our stay. It's a bit touristy so you have to go a bit early to avoid the crowd or you have to get in line for a photo with the sign. A nice sea view and a good photo of "I've been here".

Beautiful place. I'm 100% happy we came, saw, got the pic. There was some wildlife..... baboons, and some seals, but the weather was bad our day, a line at the 1 sign. And it was more of a come, take pic, and leave. Still glad I came, but didn't seem like a lot to do there.

You can access the point via a tram or on foot. I would recommend taking the funicular up and walking down. Beware of the apes and your property but it is well worth it for the views over the sea. As with a number of other places in South Africa their gift shops don't sell batteries so keep your camera... More
