Cape Point Partnership
At the most south-westerly point of Africa, where cliffs appear to tumble into the ocean, lies a very special place – the Cape Point Nature Reserve. The point is also known as the Cape of Storms, so named by explorer Bartolomeu Dias.
The Cape Point Nature Reserve is home to baboons, zebras, wild buck and one of the oldest lighthouses in South Africa.
A nature lover's and maritime history buff's delight, the reserve is run by the Cape Point Partnership, forms part of the Table Mountain National Park and belongs to a World Heritage Site.
There are many things to do at Cape Point, including taking a trip on the Flying Dutchman funicular railway to the top of the point.
