George Allen Senior said, “Work hard, stay positive, and get up early. It’s the best part of the day.” Who is George Allen Senior? We don’t know, but we absolutely agree with him, and that’s why we’re encouraging you to get to Cape Point early.
It’s tourism month and we’re celebrating at Cape Point in the best way!
The 14th Jive Cape Town Funny Festival is currently underway at the Baxter Theatre. You can expect plenty of laughs from both international and local acts. Our favourites include the talented Tats Nkonzo (Johannesburg), the hilarious Mooky Cornish (Canada) & the legendary Marc Lottering (cape Ton)! Not forgetting the MC for the show Alan Committee, he’ll keep you entertained & laughing the entire night for sure! Fair warning though, do NOT arrive late for the show.
A visit to Cape Point cannot be complete without taking your very own selfie. Whether it’s taken at the top of the lighthouse, along one of our trails or down at the Cape of Good Hope – we enjoy seeing all of your pictures! In order to celebrate National selfie Day, we thought we’d share a few of our recent favourites. Continue to post, tag and share your Cape Point selfie & who knows, we may repost your selfie next! Tag our handle @CapePointSA or #capepoint to ensure we see them!
An information update from South African National Parks regarding the current roadworks.
Table Mountain National Park has appointed a replacement roads contractor to complete the section of road works before the Rooikrans traffic circle on the Cape Point main road and work will soon recommence. The same contractor will also work on the Cape Point main road between Rooikrans and the Olifantsbos link road intersection
The park expects the site establishment to start on the 1st of June 2018 with construction starting shortly thereafter and to last for approximately 20 months.
Visitors & tour guides can expect a stop and go in place as well as short delays as traffic moves through the section of road works. Please also adhere to all traffic signage especially speed advisement’s.
Please allow some additional time for waiting in the queue especially at peak times of the day.
Please accept our apologies in advance for the discomfort the delays will have on a journey to and from Cape Point.
Thank you for your continued support!
