add to favorites

The Cape Point nature reserve is one of Cape Town’s most popular tourist attractions due to its beauty, variety of fauna and flora, as well as the rich cultural heritage.

Due to the variety of wildlife that occurs here it is the only section of the TMNP that is fenced and visitors should look out for baboons, Eland, Red Hartebeest, Bontebok and Zebra. Smaller animals you might see while you are there are dassie, tortoises, and small lizards

The Buffelsfontein visitor centre in the park showcases all the plants and animals to keep an eye out for in any particular season. At the point, visitors are to look out from the most south western point on the continent of Africa.

There are two lighthouses at Cape Point, one is the new lighthouse that took over from the first one, so there is only one functional lighthouse. The lighthouse is easily accessible by foot, or you can also catch the “Flying Dutchman” furnicular from the car park to the lighthouse.

Cape of Good Hope is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and offers hiking, surfing, angling, picnicking, beaching and cycling opportunities against the spectacular backdrop of the mountains and coastline of the Cape Peninsula.
