We visited the lighthouse, and hiked up to the top instead of taking the tram. I think that the walk was perfectly fine, and a good thing to do if you're in somewhat good physical condition. Up at the lighthouse, we noticed that the rocky...More

Go past quaint towns and picturesque beaches plus wild life such as imbues then you get to the Cape of Good Hope.

An iconic setting where Atlantic and Pacific oceans meet. Wear sunscreen, wear casual clothing - if not walking shoes and athletic wear!

We took a private tour with a driver organised through our hotel. Well worth leaving the cify behind and heading here for a touch of nature. Great views and interesting stops.

Well worth the drive from Capetown to the Cape of Good hope and a walk to the lighthouses at Cape point.

Definitely worth a visit to see the stunning scenery. I did think that the entrance fee to this National Park was quite expensive (there are no reduced rates to RSA citizens/seniors). We arrived late morning and seemed to get there before the masses. The funicular...More

Hi. Liezel. The walk up is steep, but there are plenty of points to sit for a rest or to take pictures. If you want to eat there you will need allow a lot more time as the restaurant is very slow; we were told 45 minutes... More
