Cape Point Nature Reserve

Cape Point Nature Reserve, also referred to as the Cape of Storms or the Cape of Good Hope, at the south-western tip of Africa, is a world-famous nature reserve which is bound by the cold waters of the Atlantic in the west and the warm waters of False Bay in the east. The park is part of Table Mountain National Park and offers unique fauna and flora, scenic splendour and an intriguing history.

Here, visitors will encounter one of the highest sea cliffs in the world, several hiking routes, various animals (Cape Mountain Zebra, baboons, a variety of buck, and ostrich) and an abundance of bird life (including sea birds). The trip to the promontory with its spectacular views over False Bay can be undertaken on foot or by funicular. Visitors can also spend time at the information centre, several seaside picnic spots, tidal pools, the restaurant or curio shops.
