Directions to Cape Point Nature Reserve
At the very tip of the Cape Peninsula, just 60 kilometres South-West of Cape Town, lies the breathtaking Cape Point nature reserve. This world-famous attraction, situated within a Unesco World Heritage site, offers some of the most dramatic views and spectacular scenery anywhere in the Cape, and a visit is quite simply a must-do when in the Western Cape.
Cape Point Nature Reserve stretches across 7 750 hectares of pristine land covered in rich fynbos, and is home to a variety of wildlife, including various antelope, baboons, and Cape Mountain Zebra, as well as over 250 species of birds.
Various scenic drives and walks carve their way through the reserve, leading to secluded beaches, picturesque picnic sites, and impressive viewpoints. But it's at the very tip of the peninsula that the true character of this unique part of the world comes to life.
A swift, exciting ride in the Flying Dutchman Funicular whisks you up the steep cliffside and deposits you just a few steps from the old Cape Point lighthouse, 249 metres above the ocean below. From there, panoramic views of the new, more powerful lighthouse, and swirling currents below, highlight the perils of sailing along the notorious Cape of Storms.
There are three fantastic stores at Cape Point to stock up on exclusive branded gifts and curios to remind you of your visit to this unique location, and the superb Two Oceans Restaurant overlooking the False Bay coastline offers the perfect vantage point to take stock of a truly remarkable visit to the most South-Western tip of Africa.
