Capes point is a long stretch of land along the coast that ends at a light house you can climb and experience an amazing view. Be ware that there are lots of wild animals( I saw lots of baboons and emu's)

It's a bit a odd that at the bottom of Africa, you don't feel like you're in Africa at all. Well, except for the baboons of course. The landscape of windswept vegetation over steep, rocky cliffs alongside a furious Southern Ocean tricks the senses, and you'll swear you're in northern California or southern Australia. Or Canada for that matter! But not Africa. Yet, this is Africa, the bottom of it and worth seeing. Beautiful and dramatic as the rest of the continent, with a view south, towards that other wild continent, the one of ice.

Combine the visit to Cape Point with your visit to the Cape of Good Hope. Cape Point is the more touristy of the two but not even the addition of a restaurant and a funicular railroad can destroy the natural beauty of the landscape.

Cape Point is located inside the Cape of Good Hope Reserve. The point itself includes loads of lookout points to view the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. There is a lighthouse which you can climb up to. You can also get the funicular railway to a point halfway up the hill. I have done this before, but never quite made it to the top! (so any pictures I have of that were courtesy of my boyfriend) The views are great and very picturesque. There is also a good restaurant there. There are many baboons around so please be careful if eating. The outside part of the restaurant had great views and electric fences to protect against the intruding monkeys. However, this still didn't stop a hungry mother baboon, complete with baby on her back, breaking through and stealing my boyfriend's burger! The baboon was then chased away by a vuvuzela toting waitress, which was hilarious. The food was good though and like I said, lovely views.

I guess the part I remember most about Cape Point is how insanely windy it is at the top that your face literally flies in all directions and you wind up spitting on yourself incessantly (I'm completely serious) as gross as that sounds- and your hair literally blinds you (well if you have hair that's longer than a couple of inches). I couldn't even speak. I was concentrating so hard on keeping my mouth shut so I wouldn't have any embarrassing spittle moments. The other part was the shtupping baboons. (Watch out....they're dangerous apparently). Other than that (and after really trivializing an amazing place on the planet) - not too far from Cape Town, definitely worth the drive down.
