Cape of Good Hope is located on the southernmost tip of the Cape Peninsula. Together with Cape Point, it is part of the Table Mountain National Park Nature Reserve. In the nature park is a special lighthouse on top of the mountain, which is a real attraction!
Your adventure begins from the moment you enter the park. During the ride there is the opportunity to spot ostriches, eland and other wildlife. After a short drive you will arrive at the base station. Here you can have a bite to eat before making the climb to the top. Don't feel like climbing? No problem, you can also go up with the gondola. During the climb, chances are that you will encounter baboons. Mind you, they love treats and are very cheeky.
Once at the top you can enjoy a beautiful view of the ocean at the Cape Point lighthouse. On the way back, we advise you to stop at the tip of the Cape Peninsula. Here you can see and experience how rough the ocean is. It directly explains why so many ships went down here in the past. Don't forget to look at the seals on the rocks.
Don't have time to visit Hermanus for whale watching during your trip? No problem! When you visit Cape of Good Hope between June and November you have the chance to spot whales! Finally, with us you can combine this activity with other activities in the region. You can also visit the Noordhoek wine region and the penguins of Boulders Beach.
