Cape of Good Hope - Favourite Day Walks Featured

Sixty kilometres south of the Cape Town lies a gem of a reserve, home to a rich floral kingdom and a series of spectacular hiking trails.

The Cape of Good Hope - or Cape Point, the most south-westerly point of the continent, while not being the actual southerly tip of Africa (that honour is bestowed on Cape Agulhas further east), is without a doubt the most dramatic. The 7 750-hectare reserve, which forms part of the Table Mountain National Park, tapers out into a thin rocky headland like the knobbly end of a lizard’s tail. Here, waves crash onto rocky cliffs, cormorants soar on the wind and an endless expanse of water extends to the horizon.

The site of many a shipwreck in the past, Cape Point is now a celebration of natural beauty. The breath-taking and magnificent scenery is best appreciated on a series of trails that wend their way through the reserve. Over the years, a few have become firm favourites.
