  • The Cape Point is a world class destination! Very strategically positioned naturally, as the meeting place of the Cold Benguella current and the Warm Aghulhas current. It is also Adjacent to the Cape Of Good Hope, South Westerly tip of Africa.

  • The ambiance the air rushing through your face. Mountain range on the side and the Indian and Atlantic ocean on the other side. What other place can I get two oceans meeting in such lush scenery

  • Panoramic view going from the car park to the old lighthouse. The only commercial funicular in Africa ! 40 passengers per car every 3 minutes (R65 return, R50 single) in a 600 meters and 3 minutes trip.

  • Cool funicular. And much better that a steep trek up the side of a mountain

  • Great place to go great views great service
