South Africa’s rugged coastline boasts some of the most spectacular scenery in the world, and nowhere is this truer than at the Cape Point Nature Reserve. A trip to Cape Point reveals one of the area’s most striking landmarks.
Spending a day Table Mountain National ParkSituated around 60 kilometers from the city, Cape Point is the most southerly part of Table Mountain National Park, and the most southwesterly point in the whole of Africa. Jutting out into the Atlantic Ocean, the rugged finger of land and rock is a spectacular sight.
The dynamic landscape of the Point is particularly breathtaking. Ocean breakers crash at the base of towering cliffs, whilst a variety of wildlife species range through the rich fauna that blankets the undulating landscape. You will find a network of paths criss-crossing Cape Point, and all along them there are great picnic spots to sit and relax, whilst taking in the scenery.
A region of natural importanceAs well as providing amazing views, Cape Point is an important part of the Cape Floral Region, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which houses over 20 per cent of Africa’s flora. It is one of the most beautiful areas on the continent and a must-see for anyone with an interest in nature and the outdoors.
