Cape Point tour, commonly referred to as the Cape Peninsula tour

Cape Point is located about 1.2km east of Cape of Good Hope and is the most South Western corner of the African continent and the mythical meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history. Named the ‘Cape of Storms’ by Bartolomeu Dias in 1488; the ‘Point’ was treated with respect by sailors for centuries. Coming to the aid of many sailors as a strategic navigational landmark by day, at night, the jagged rocks and violent storms of the point resulted in many shipwrecks being littered around the coastline.
