It is a beautiful construction with an amazing view of Cape Town, unfortunately the place was dirty and poorly maintained, even Rhodes statue was depredated (there was no nose).

Drove up to the Rhodes Memorial to see the sunset but found the gate locked and no way to get to the top. I guess it's for security reasons, but it was disappointing.

There's currently a groundswell of resentment in South Africa - amongst certain circles - concerning Cecil Rhodes. The accusations of rank imperialism and racism abound. But he was a man of his times and a truly great man - a visionary at that - who...More

A well kept place. Quiet and peaceful as one reflects on the years gone by. Looking up and forward for today. The view is awesome. For me, looking out to the horizon one can only dream big. Worth a visit.

Its not usually very busy and you can picnic up here, take a short hike or even sit down at the restaurant behind the memorial. Also a great place for photo shoots.

This is not a "must see", but if you're passing or nearby, it's worth a look at the memorial, and the views. It's a little off the beaten track, a bit isolated, and slightly neglected. But if this is the kind of thing you like,...More
