Get off the beaten track and take a

 walk at Cape Point

A visit to the Cape Of Good Hope is a must for all visitors to Cape Town. An hours beautiful scenic drive from the centre of Cape Town will bring you to the entrance. Almost immediately a change in scenary is apparent. It is somehow wilder and even more harsh once you enter the reserve.

One tar road bisects the reserve for 13km taking you straight to the lighthouse and to Cape Point itself. Here there is a restuarant and a funcular railway to transport people right up to the old lighthouse itself.

However for those tourists not wanting to tread that much worn path there are numerous hiking trails throughout the reserve. From these one can get away from the crowds and really appreciate the lonliness and wildness of the region. There is a huge range of hikes available, from a short stroll from the Rooikraans parking area which will bring you to one of the best whale viewing spots in Cape Town. To day long hikes and even overnight trails.
