Cape Peninsula National Park – Cape of Good Hope http://www.stufftodo.co.za/cape-peninsula-national-park-cape-of-good-hope/ Tue, 16 Nov 2010 07:40:20 +0000 http://stufftodo.co.za.dedi22.flk1.host-h.net/?p=778 . . . → Read More Here: Cape Peninsula National Park – Cape of Good Hope]]>
Cape Peninsula National Park – Cape of Good Hope
 
Some info:
Is the most south westerly point of Africa really worth you climbing in your car (or a tour bus) and trekking out to see? Sir Francis Drake certainly thought so, describing it in 1580 as, “The most stately thing and the fairest Cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth.”

Situated at the junction of two of the earth’s most contrasting water masses – the cold Benguela current on the West Coast and the warm waters of False Bay on the East Coast – The Cape of Good Hope offers a variety of surprises for any willing explorer.

As part of the Cape Peninsula National Park, rich and varied flora and fauna stretch over 430 km of pristine coastline whilst cliffs tower 200 metre above the sea. It’s an ancient land, with history of human inhabitants dating back to the early Stone Age when San hunter-gatherers and the Khoi people lived here.

Today, you’ll find plenty to do… Hiking paths, picnic sites, tidal pools, restaurants, a curio shop, shipwrecks, angling and diving are all on offer. If it’s your first visit, we recommend stopping in at the Visitor’s Centre to get better acquainted with the area and squeeze the most out of your time here.

Depending on what time of the year you visit, you’re bound to see at least one of Cape Point’s animal inhabitants – from Game, to a spectacular array of birds, to the renowned Chacma Baboons, to Southern Right Whales (between June and November).

Before climbing into your car (or that tour bus), bare in mind that this area is susceptible to extreme and often unpredictable weather, so pack extra jackets just in case. Speaking of weather, The Global Atmosphere watch station – designed to blend into the western slopes of Cape Point, is one of only 20 global Atmosphere watch stations.

Judging from its unceasing popularity, it seems Sir Francis Drake’s rave reviews remain true more than four centuries later – The Cape of Good Hope is well worth a visit.

Address: End of the peninsula.
Where it is: You can go either via Main Road through Simons Town or from Kommetjie follow the coastal road through Scarborough.
