Experience the true wildness of the Cape! Fynbos galore. Beautiful walkways to experience the vastness of the ocean and breathtaking landscape. Great place to explore, lots of photo opportunities! Would recommend 10/10 😄

Cape point is a extreme position of peninsula. Rocks and little trees were observed in the way. Sometimes, Baboon monkeys were observed as well. Take care. Don't forget to take a famous picture in the Cape Good Hope sign.

Over priced rip off. Most expensive of all the South African attractions. We arrived and our baby had fallen asleep in the car so we asked at the entrance if it was worth it just to drive around. She said OFCOURSE it was. We took...More

This reserve provides entrance to several parts of the southern Cape and if you enjoy the outdoors, it should not be missed. It's easily accessed either via self-drive, tour bus, taxi, or bike.

When we first got there, I was reminded a lot of Iceland with it's lack of trees, storm lashed coast, and abundance of exposed rock. Not just on the sea shore but also further inland. But the flowers are uniquely South Africa, and there are...More

Hi sorry for the delay, there is transport almost to the top so I would say yes for the views but you wouldn’t be able to get right up to the lighthouse as that’s very narrow, steep and with steps. Hope this helps
