It would seem strange to visit Cape Town and not visit Cape point. Lovely views. Diverse flora, and some game too. A number of companies offer day trips. The red sightseeing tour bus trip is good value.

What an amazing experience.The views are out of this world, especially if you take the flying Dutchman all the way up to the lighthouse. A breath taking experience to see the Antlantic and Indian Oceans. A nice strawl in the park will make you bump...More

We enjoyed walking around Cape Point. The trails can be a bit tricky so you do need sensible shoes or boots. It gets busy but there is plenty of space so does not seem crowded. There is plenty of wildlife around especially lizards , so...More

Fabulous views, scenery etc, but annoying tourists are charged over 4 times what SA residents are charged just to go in! Won’t be taking a return visit.

Got spare time, go visit the reserve. But its not anything special. Experience it once , but you're unlikely to go there again.

Such a gorgeous venue, views and seas. Sadly extremely overpriced shops (for just water) and targeting tourists instead of locals. Otherwise stunning.

This park is exhileratingly gorgeous. It si the sole place to find numerous species of fauna and flora confined to this small area. there is a track car up to the point. Although a definite tourist trap the park is still extremely peaceful. There are...More

The national park covers a big area and the admission fees keep out any casual visitors (the human kind, anyway) so it’s a serene and safe place to visit. It’s worth visiting Cape Point as well as the Cape of Good Hope as the views...More

We had our own vehicle so we could stay as long as we wished. The funicular was great and saved our legs. The view from the lighthouse top is spectacular. We had a great seafood lunch at the Two Oceans restaurant. Keep your windows rolled...More

Hi sorry for the delay, there is transport almost to the top so I would say yes for the views but you wouldn’t be able to get right up to the lighthouse as that’s very narrow, steep and with steps. Hope this helps
