Cape Point / Cape Aghulus Tips (16)

Cape Agulhas the REAL end of...

Cape Agulhas the REAL end of Africa!! Most people mistake Cape Point just a short drive from Cape Town for the southern most point of Africa. Heard same rubbish being told by touristguides. A glance at the atlas should clarify that once n for all. Cape Agulhas about a three-hour drive southeast of Cape Town. Follow the N2 from Cape Town to CALEDON, Drive through NAPIER and BREDASDORP, In Bredasdorp, take the road to STRUISBAAI, LAGULHAS +- 35 km, on the main road. Here, the two oceans really meet in a spectacular show of natural beauty.Therefore pic is of REAL southern most point of Africa.Visitors should take note, driving on the beaches and dunes is illegal as this is destroing the delicate seafront wildlife some of which are endangered species.

The L’Agulhas Lighthouse (tel: (028) 424 2584) and Zuidste Kaap (tel: (028) 435 6034) restaurants to dine out at the END.

There's also a guesthouse Agulhas Country Lodge if you'd like to stay there for the night after enjoying a gourmet dinner.
Theyr webaddress is included below.

Visit Cape Point Ostrich Farm.

The farm is situated 60 km south of Cape Town on the M65 about 400 m north of the entrance to the "Cape Point National Park" "Cape Of Good Hope".
They offer you guided and very detailed tours
in German, English and French. On there tours,
throughout the farm, you'll be familiarised with
the life cycle of our ostriches.
They tell you more about the life of the ostriches, all the way from the egg right up to the adult ostrich.
During the breeding season, quite often you will be able to experience the hatching of a ostrich chick.
There is a Tea room where you can also get a beer and sitin the beer garden and go shopping in there shop.
Female ostriches don't have a voice box.

Not much here

Well, since we were some what close, about a hour away in De Keeders, we decided to go to the southern most tip of the continet of Africa.....a long and somewhat boring driving leads you to a town called Cape Aguhlas and at the very end is a lighthouse and on the rocky beach a plaque stating where your at. Other then that there isn't much here.....we spent 2 hours going and coming and spent 5 minutes there......won't do it again.....if you must then be forwarned !!!!!

Cape Point - the Lighthouse

As you can see, the climb up to the Lighthouse is fairly steep, but it is worth it for the spectacular view.

The first lighthouse was built from cast iron in Greenwich, London, in 1859. It has since been rebuilt at a differnt localtion for better visibility. Now the bean can be seen up to 63 km out to sea.

Cape Agulhas - where Atlantic meets Indian Ocean

No natural boundary seperates the two oceans, but the geographical boundary is generally recognised to be here at Cape Agulhas

At Cape Point, the warm Mozambique current meets the cold Benguela current, making a significant impact on all forms of marine life in the vicinity and on the flora on the peninsula.

CAPE OF GOOD HOPE NATURE RESERVE

The south part of the Cape Peninsula is covered by the Cape of good hope nature reserve. It is a area in which you find lots of fauna and flora, the most southern point, the Cape of good hope and a very interesting museum. An entrance fee has to be paid but it is really worth it. Dont miss this reserve when in CT. It really is a must !!!!!!!!

It's Cliche, but go down to the Cape

If you go as far as Capetown, make sure you do the great cliff drive down to the Cape of Good Hope. We were thrilled to see the famous baboons and even wild ostriches along the beach. It's a beautiful site and a view you'll never forget.

Cape of Good Hope

This is the one trip that everyone seems to make: the 90-minute drive from Cape Town along the spectacular, twisting coastal highway to the Cape of Good Hope, the point where two great oceans meet. It's not actually Africa's most southerly point; that is Cape Agulhas, farther to the east. Don't dismiss the warning signs at the Cape - the baboons can be very aggressive.

Cape Point - funicular

The funicular railway can carry 500 people an hour to the viewing platform, although there are still another 120 steps to climb from the railway to the very top. It is worth it though for the view.
