Cape Point


At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, set amongst spectacular scenery and rocky coastline, is Cape Point. The point forms part of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, and visitors to the reserve can expect to see a variety of animals including buck, baboons and Cape Mountain Zebra; as well as over 250 species of birds and indigenous flora found nowhere else in the world.

Take a scenic drive, stop at one of the many picnic spots and tidal pools and travel to the lighthouse lookout by funicular or on foot for spectacular views.

Cape Point is the most south-western point of Africa and it is said to be the meeting point of the warm Mozambique and cold Benguela currents. It is also a very popular angling and diving site, due to the variety of fish found in the area from the two different currents. Whales are often spotted from June through to October.
