Cape Point Nature Reserve

About
At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

The First Visit Won't Be Your Last
Oct 2021
We visited Cape Point for the first time during our first trip to Cape Town. It won't be our last visit. While you can do the trip in a few hours, driving between the highlights, there is so much more to see and do. We paid a quick visit to the visitor's center. It is relatively small but informative. We drove to the parking lot for the lighthouse. My husband walked up to the top while our nine-year old son and I chose to take the funicular up. It only takes a few minutes. The views from the top are amazing. But the wind, at least the day we visited, is like nothing you've ever experienced. I was afraid my camera was going to fly out of my hands! It's something else. We then drove to the Cape of Good Hope which is at sea-level. The wind was pretty wicked there too. We saw a number of ostriches running around which was entertaining. Next time I'd like to do some of the hikes, particularly the Shipwreck Trail.

Great Views, okay experience, would like to explore more
Aug 2021
Been several years since I last visited the Cape Point attraction, overall was a good experience as we went there during a quiet period. Entrance fee was reasonable as an SA Citizen as too was the fanicular ride to the point for those feeling a little lazy. Views are spectacular and I would like to take more time to explore the whole park either by bike or hiking. Only disappointment was the bathroom facilities which were smelly and which had no hand soap especially during a pandemic. So plan ahead an take your own.

Hi. Thank you for your review. Please can you advise if this was the Ablution facility at car park area (Bottom station) or the Funicular facility at the upper station and we will forward to the relevant management team. Thank you!

amazingly wonderful

Absolutely amazing, this nature reserve is truly breathtaking in every way. It offer historical sights aswell especially for tourists seeking more information about Cape Town. Hiking trails are not dificult but just be extra cautious of those Cape Town monkeys and always keep your food hidden.

Great Day Trip

We had a driver take us, saw Lynx, Elands, and more. Packed picnic lunches and enjoyed some light hiking and the scenery. Great day trip for sightseeing and hiking.

Worth the Trip!
Apr 2021 • Couples
Just 100% amazing views here! I have never been and was not even sure what I was going to expect. But wow!
It says on the brochure one day isn’t enough to see everything and for once I feel the brochure got it right. Nobody needs my little review to say it’s perfect but it is!
The only sad part was due to covid the restaurant was not functioning on the day - totally understandable but still sad.

I really like Cape Point, its at the end of the peninsuala, so get ready for some stunning views and there is also an serene beach at the pathway which is really good! The place however is a bit inaccesable (there is entrance at the beginning of the park) by transit so you should arrange something, but when done I think its well worth a trip actually. I love the fact that you can see both seas (altough you do not see much a difference but its more the feeling) and there are places to have food/drink here too. Be aware though: its very popular so on an crowded day its packed and you may not like that, so better go during quieter times as trough the week.
