Capturing Cape Point: A photo essay

For years the beauty of Cape Point, Africa's most south-westerly tip, has captured travellers, nature lovers and adventurers.

Cape Point is part of the Cape Floral Region World Heritage Site and is also a part of the Table Mountain National Park. It's home to lots of animals such as rock dassies, lizards, penguins, birds and mischievous Chacma baboons, and is one of the best places to experience fynbos, which forms a plant kingdom all on its own.

Cape Point is the epitome of natural beauty and has awe-inspiring views from all sides. It boasts beautiful beaches, rolling green hills and rocky valleys offering spots for picnicking, hiking and mountain biking.
