Smitswinkel Bay

Right before you enter the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, you will pass Smitswinkel Bay with its clear blue-green water. During the season, you may even spot whales from this viewpoint.

Cape Point Lighthouse

Cape Point Lighthouse, located at the end of the main road at the Nature Reserve.

Cape Point Lighthouse

The lighthouse sits 238 meters high above the water. You can either take a brief ride on a train or walk up the steps... (Hint: As it is going all way up, we recommend to take the train up and walk down.)

Baboon at Cape Point

A Baboon has stolen (!) a bag of chips from a tourist and is now enjoying the snack. When we were at Cape Point, we encountered two baboons, and we recommend to stay away from them as they tend to get really agressive. And please do not feed them as this will encourage them even more!

Diaz Beach

Diaz beach, seen from the site of the old lighthouse.

Cape of Good Hope

The waves were smashing against the riffs of the Cape of Good Hope, even if this was still a friendly and calm day.

Cape of Good Hope Photo Point

And here we are, your fearless travel reporters, doing the tourist thing: Asking for a photo at the Cape of Good Hope photo point. :-) Please note that this place is just the most south-western point of South Africa. The most southern point is Cape L'Agulhas.

Whitsands Bay

On your way back to Cape Town, you may want to consider a stop at Whitsands Bay, located just north of Scarborough. An unspoilt beach with a fantastic view.

Chapman's Peak

Chapman's Peak Drive is surely one of the most remarkable drives in the world, along with Highway Number One in the U.S.A.

Capman's Peak Drive

This is a view back at the Chapman's Peak Drive, as it is making its way along the mountainside. If you look closely, you can even spot the Slangkoppunt light house of Kommetjie.

Hout Bay

Hout Bay, seen from Chapman's Peak Drive.

Hout Bay Viewpoint

Three tourists are enjoying the view from the Hout Bay view point. The hill on the other end of the bay is called The Sentinel. It is 331 meters tall.
