Growing up in Brazil, since very young, we learn about the famous "Cape of Storms" and the brave Portuguese navigators in the 15th and16th centuries. "Cape of Storms" had later its name changed to "Cape of Good Hope" and is an important part of our...More

The overall area of the Cape is really nice, but for some reason there were just so many people around the sign that's pictured. If you can't make it to this bit then don't be too disheartened, if you do go and want a picture...More

The drive from Pinelands, Cape Town, to the Main Gate of Cape of Good Hope took 1 hour 15 minutes! It was a beautiful drive with wonderful sea views. When we got there, there were lots of incredible photo opportunities! The ostriches were adorable, too....More

Do make this car trip if you’re visiting Cape Town, and stand in the spot where the Indian and Atlantic Ocean currents mingle, the southern tip of Africa. (The actual spot is just down the road a bit but the lighthouse is the place that...More

Crowds raced past the illusive eland gracing 50 meters from the main road in order to get that sought after picture with the Cape of Good Hope sign. Yes, I took the picture too, but I saw the eland...and some truly magnificent scenery!

Magnificent and peaceful sceneries along the drive and at the cape, not to be missed! Train ride up the hill top is exhilarating too. Bit of a walk to reach the light house but it is worth it.

If you weren't told it was the southwesternest point in Africa, you'd never know. It looks just like lots of other points, just crowded. Out of all the things to do in SA, this would be pretty far down on my list.

Well, for sightseeing I used the red and blue bus it was amazing. Renting a car is good enough but way more expensive.
