Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope
The Cape Peninsula is traditionally identified as the meeting point of two oceans Atlantic and Indian and the southernmost tip of the African continent, although both are not geographically true. It is however a very suggestive place with a high historical and symbolic value, easily reachable from Cape Town.
This stunning natural reserve is located at the southernmost point of the Cape Peninsula. You can hike to the lighthouse for breathtaking views of the ocean and surrounding landscape.
The two unmissable points of interest are Cape Point, with its panoramic cliffs from which whales can be seen, and – on the other tip of the promontory – the actual Cape of Good Hope (little more than a rocky point with a a beach), connected to each other by a path of about one kilometre.
