  • Where the two oceans really meet

    Lots of people believe the Indian (warmer) and Atlantic (colder) oceans meet at Cape Point not to far from Cape Town (where the Dias monument is) . It is actually a lot further away near a little town called Struisbaai. It's worth the drive. On the way stop at Hermanus, Onrus,Kleinmond etc.

  • Where the oceans meet.

    Where the oceans meet may be debatable but Agulhas is the most southern tip of the African continent. It is rocky, windy, and gives you a feeling of how immense the world is. On the other hand that means more places to see. Hurry!
