Keep the winter chills at bay with Cape Point’s mid-year specials (1 June to 31 July 2016) where two kids (aged 6 -16) ride free on the Flying Dutchman Funicular when an adult return ticket is bought for R58. Head up to the lighthouse and enjoy 360-degree land and sea views – if you’re lucky, you may even spot a whale or two. Pop into the Lighthouse 5 store (at the top funicular station) or the Logo Store (at the parking lot) and you’ll receive a free Cape Point placemat and coaster set with every purchase over R400.
