Cape Point Nature Reserve

Cape Point Nature Reserve

Cape Point South Africa is a must visit destination, whether you self drive here or are part of a tour, this is one destination (other than Table Mountain) you simply cannot miss out on.

The dramatic rugged rocks and sheer cliff faces that rise more than 200m out of the Atlantic ocean below is one of South Africa most scenic drives. There are short hiking trails, isolated beaches and tidal pools for one to explore, in short one can easily spend the entire day discovering all that this tiny reserve has to offer.

The nature reserve is home to over 250 species of bird, 1100 indigenous plant species, 26 recorded shipwrecks and the Flying Dutchman funicular to mention only a few. For the adventure enthusiasts there is sea kayaking, mountain biking and hiking trails on offer at a cost (hiking trails are free, just get the map at the main gate).

Feel free at anytime to stop the car and get out, breathe in that fresh Atlantic air and photograph the fynbos. Getting out into nature is what the Cape Point Nature Reserve is all about and explore those small roads that go left and right off the main road, this is where the exploring starts.

Pros; The views are amazing, Birdlife is amazing, The Funicular is a must and so is getting up to the lighthouse, The hikes and almost private beaches.
Cons; Busy over summer season, baboons are painful, the restaurant could be better (way better).

Ticket prices are as follows (as of April 2016);
Open all year round
Adult - R125.00
Child (2 - 11 years) - R65.00
Child under 2 - Free

One pays the entrance fee at the main gate on arrival, enquiries and questions can be answered on this phone number - +27 (0) 21 780 9010/11.
