Full-Day | Cape Point Hike & Nature Walk
Cape Of Storms Up Close
The world’s most scenic one-day hike? Quite possibly. Walking south and with glittering False Bay hundreds of feet below them, Cape Point hikers enjoy panoramic views all the way.
Ending with a grand finale at Africa’s most south-westerly point, this single track trail down the Indian Ocean side of the Cape Point Reserve follows the meandering contours of its mountains, dipping down onto pearly beaches where baboons forage along a teeming ocean edge.
It’s also the best hike on the peninsula for wildlife: reptiles are common in summer, antelope and ostrich are often seen, and in spring, lucky hikers may walk next to breeching whales.
And Cape Point’s final trump card lies on its Atlantic coast. Hikers who want a taste of the Cape’s ocean life can walk on wild beaches past shipwrecks, keening gulls and otter tracks – flat walking with huge ocean views and plenty of wildlife surprises.
