The landmark attraction of the route is Cape Point at the end of the Cape Peninsula, with the legendary Cape of Good Hope. Far too many visitors do the speed tour to the old lighthouse that rises 238 metres above the sea, when the journey into the Good Hope Section of the Table Mountain National Park is a day of discovery all on its own. Cape Point is Africa’s most southwesterly point.

You can experience the grandeur of one of the highest sea cliffs and freshest air in South Africa. Lesser known details are the 1 200 species of indigenous plants , various small mammals, antelope, zebras, and even South Africa’s largest bird – the ostrich, that call this park home.

Take some time to explore this fascinating reserve and discover some of the history and shipwrecks that scatter the coastline – from the Lusitania that struck Bellow rock in 1911; the Thomas T Tucker near Olifantsbos, the Phyllisia a Cape town trawler that went down in 1968 and the remains of the dutch trawler The Nolloth. Find out the legend of Antonie’s Gat; a place where even today Muslim worshippers may be seen praying on the cliffs of Cape Point in honour of the holy man that lived there.

The Cape of Good Hope has some of the most brilliant scenery in scenery for those participating in active sports, be it on land or on or in the water from scenic walks to hiking & biking, swimming in the tidal pools, diving & surfing, fishing  and angling, and bird, whale  and animal watching all over the reserve. 

From the Cape Of Good Hope Nature Reserve at Cape Point, the spectacular road takes you past Smitswinkel Bay (treasure seekers and divers know about the 6 shipwrecks in that tiny bay!) and Millers Point to Simon’s Town.

Activities at Cape Point:

Fishing:
Permits are required for angling off Rooikrantz in the Cape of Good Hope, or game fishing off the coastline. But don’t let that stop you from getting your line in the water in the hopes of catching yellowfin, longfin or atlantic bigeye tuna, dorado, yellowtail, galjoen, hottentot or the occasional tunny.

History of the Cape of  Good Hope:
 It is here that the great voyagers Dias and da Gama rounded the Cape opening up the sea trade routes between East and West, revolutionizing global economics.

As a result of violent storms, the coastline is littered with the shipwrecks.  The two day hiking trail is a great way to explore them.
