  • I felt obligated to visit the Cape of Good Hope and was glad that I did. It makes for a nice photography moment and photos are the best souvenirs. Go up to the lighthouse. Walk the trails and enjoy.....  more

  • A legendary place worth the trip. Park admission fee is steep at over R350 per adult but the chance to be there is once in a lifetime for most people so it’s worth it. Lots to see and do and areas to hike and explore including an overnight hiking option that would have been great to know about. Baboons come out in force near sunset so be careful with them.
  • Cape of good hope, it’s a real tourist attraction, everybody wants a picture at the sign “ most southern point of south Africa” Beautiful coast line so special. Be careful though when you drive through the mountains, it can be very narrow at times especially if a bus is coming from the other side or if you would want to overtake a bus. SAFETY FIRST!!! You can see seals in the sea and on the rocks. For the rest… just enjoy all the views and wind and sun and music of the waves of the sea
