A South African safari with us that includes a trip to the Cape of Good Hope makes for time spent in the company of majestic sea-cliffs as well as breath-taking beaches and magical views. The name Cape of Good Hope was used to represent the Cape Colony that was established in 1652, but nowadays is associated to the protected area that is part of the Table Mountain National Park.
Home to the legend of the flying Dutchman – a ghost ship that sails around the area with a crew of condemned sailors who are doomed to sail there for eternity – the Cape of Good Hope is a truly magnificent attraction when on a South African safari with us.
As a part of the Table Mountain National Park, the Cape of Good Hope is rife with fynbos, proteas, ericas, sugarbushes, daisies, lilies and irises. There are also over 250 species of birds and an interesting variety of animals such as baboons, dassies, the Cape clawless otter and others.
Cape Point is the south eastern corner of the Cape Peninsula and provides to be a fantastic vantage point for the Southern Right whales, seals and dolphins that frequent the rich marine life habitat found there.
Described as a rocky mountain landform, Cape Point has two mountain peaks, one of which is a popular tourist attraction boasting the old Cape Point lighthouse on its top. You can reach the lighthouse by walking or by a funicular which runs from the car park to the lighthouse.
An underdeveloped and unspoilt section of the Western Cape, both Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope add a magical touch to any South African safari with us.
