Cape Point Nature Reserve

Home to buck, zebra, ostrich, baboons, 250 bird species and indigenous flora and fauna, the area offers beautiful lookouts, beaches, hikes and mountain biking trails. Make sure to stop by the Cape of Good Hope – the most southwestern tip of Africa – and the infamous lighthouse at Cape Point. Instead of taking the Flying Dutchman Funicular, walk up to the lighthouse and check out the lookout points along the way. The views just keep getting better. If you have the time take a walk down to Diaz beach (it’s a steep walk, but well worth it). You might spot some skimboarders or bodyboarders braving the open ocean swell. Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly as Cape Town weather can change unexpectedly so come prepared.
