The narrow coastline, discovered in 1488 by Bartholomeu Dias, became famous as the birthplace of the "Flying Dutchman" legend. A bird-watching paradise, the area shelters more than 200 species, including the African penguin, as well as a variety of other creatures like Chacma baboon, fallow deer, whales, and the elusive Cape mountain zebra.

Cape Point reviews
Spent the whole day driving and some walks in the Cape of good hope national park Be aware of the Apes they are pleasure to sea but they can be dangerous. They have big nasty teeth and will bite... more »
There are better views from the lighthouse at Cape Point but this is still nevertheless a lovely spot to visit. It can get busy trying to get a photo with the sign but there is much else to enjoy... more »
Spectacular and literally breath-taking. I have had the great fortune to visit many impressive places around the globe, but this bucket list item is now near the very top of my list as far as stunning natural beauty. It exceeded my expectations in every way. I'm already planning a return trip to South Africa for next year.
Great views at the very tip of the continent. You must see this, go early, beat the tourists and crowds. Great photo ops and the chance to see some wildlife too, mostly baboons and ostrich. I love it there.
