We have seen many baboons, ostriches, Bunteboks and Eland and a very diverse flora and beautiful bays. We could enjoy it in peace and quiet. The baboons outside of the hotspots were used cars, but you could look at them alone, unless they have been aggressive.
It was nice to visit cape point after so many years. Go early to avoid the traffic. See the tourist things 1st and then enjoy driving in the nature park looking at all the other things on offer. A good tip for lunch. As you leave the reserve turn left, there is a very good restaurant on your right hand side
Must visit wherever you are in the world (especially the picture with the “most south western point of the African continent” board. Super amazing views of the Atlantic. You have a choice of hiking up to the light house (15 min or 1 hr, depending on where you start the hike) or taking the cable car (5 min). It was cloudy when we were there but it clears up super quickly.
Definitely should stop here as part of your Cape Town holiday. There are beautiful views to be had. Lots of flora and fauna. From small to large. Tiny pretty flowers too osterich. Bring a good guide, living or in the paperback version, as there is lots of history at this destination as well. It is a slightly strenuous trek to the lighthouse, but worth it. A small train also goes up and down for less fit travelers.
It was very nice there. To get a spot on the sign to take a photo was very difficult. Very much people are there and take pictures from all around the world. We were shocked that people are not able to stand in a line to take a great pictures. Instead they go to the sign but it's not there turn. You can take a train to the light house or you can walk for 10 minutes which is a nice walk with great views. Also you can walk to the real southern point but then you have to walk 20 minutes one way.
The cape is beautiful with the ocean breeze and teal color of the water and white breaking waves made you feel like you were at the end of the continet. There's plenty of hiking in the cliffs and around the area. We came before the noon hour and enjoyed the area with only one tour bus and a couple of cars. Truly appreciated the lack of people!
