A beautiful place, natural beauty wherever you look. Picturesque bays with waves rolling in, a funicular that takes you to a great viewing point and wild ostriches, baboons and antelope. An amazing experience to visit the southern most tip of South Africa.

The entrance fee simply to drive through the gates is astronomical and is disgraceful. The reserve charges R135 per person, and this doesn't include the R65 funicular train that takes you up to the lighthouse to see Cape Point - you could walk up the...More
