  • Beautiful view. But make sure you are wearing sneakers and something warm going up the mountain. The wind is extremely strong and the mountain rocks very slippery. Unfortunately with lower back pains, I could only walk to a certain level on the mountain. Would love to go back and do it again completely.
  • Absolute beautiful place! The sky was clear blue but the wind was extremely strong! A some points when climbing the top of the peak I was blown off my feet! The Díaz beach was breathtaking with white sand and blue/greenish waves. There is a very nice staircase build to go all the way down! Very comfortable!
  • Cape of Good Hope ( Cape Point ) If you have been to Cape Town, you cannot miss this place. This site is protected under SAN Parks ( South African National Parks ). This is a National Park named Cape of Good Hope Natures Reserve. There are a lot of herbivore animals & birds around along with a variety of flora as well. This place has a entry fee, accessible to wheel chair, washrooms, Restaurants & accessible to children. But one need to walk a lot. There are several points to visit in this park, mainly Cape Point & Cape of Good Hope.( Brochure Picture Attached ) This place is good for hiker. Take your time, visit every place nicely within the park. It requires atleast 1 day to complete & enjoy the beauty. I have attached some pictures all were taken inside the park.
  • So much to cover at one get time to click at that big wooden lable Cape of good hope, as it's a most south western point of South Africa. And then you get chance to get ride in funicular right up to light house and there you go such a amazing enjoy the panoramic views from top.
  • The peacefulness,formation of rocks,just being surrounded by nature
