Cape Point is situated at the farthest tip of Africa. Experience dramatic coastal views with deserted beaches and steep cliffs that drop into the ocean. You'll find hectares of rich flora and fauna, buck, baboon, Cape mountain zebra and 250 bird species. It falls within the Table Mountain National Park, which is a world heritage site. Cape Point is notorious for its violent storms and centuries of shipwrecks. In 1488, Bartholomew Dias, the famous explorer, became the first person known to sail around the Cape. He aptly named it Cape of Storms. The reserve is home to the most powerful lighthouse in South Africa and the popular Two Oceans Restaurant.
