At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, 60km SouthWest of Cape Town, lies Cape Point. Located within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park; a declared World Heritage site, as part of the Cape Floral region. The Park encompasses 7750Ha of rich and varied Fauna and Flora. Cape Point is a nature entusiast's paradise. Rugged rocks and sheer cliffs towering more than 200 metres above the sea and cutting deep into the ocean provide a spectacular background for the Parks’ rich bio-diversity. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Home to the Flying Dutchman Funicular and the Two Oceans restaurant.

A visit to Cape Point brings together the place where the two oceans meet. The Fynbos is not to be missed

Drive yourself and take your time! Wear comfortable walking shoes, beware of the baboons but they are amazing to watch from afar! Also have cash for the tolls!

It is definitely worth it buying the funicular ticket to get to the top. The view there is amazing. It gets a little crowded at the top to take pictures with the city signs, but just wait a few minutes and you'll have your shot....More
