Two Oceans Restaurant at Cape Point will, with immediate effect, no longer be offering West Coast rock lobster (crayfish) on their menu.
We’ve put together a series of 12 podcasts to bring the myths, legends and true stories of Cape Point to you, wherever you are. Listen to the first episode below:
The Rounding of Cape Point
Part 1: The first attempt – Bartolomeu Dias
Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the first sailing ship to have rounded the Cape of Good Hope, is that it didn’t.
The Funicular Trams
A tough trip to the top
In 1877, the lighthouse keeper at the Cape Point lighthouse began to keep a visitor’s book. The objective was partly for his own records and amusement, and partly to reward those who had made the arduous trip.
The funicular turns 20 in less than a month and to celebrate, we’re doing giveaways, discounts, freebies, and loads of deals. Between 26 November and 16 December early birds at Cape Point will be rewarded.
We love that you share your #CapePointMoments with us. There are some crazy poses, some sweet ones…and then the ones you can’t seem to get enough of. We like to call this one the WAWO pose: ‚With Arms Wide Open‘ – which is also the name of a song by a band called Creed. We think it’s a suitable name for the pose, and the lyrics are spot on:
With every visit to Cape Point, you have a moment. Be it the wind that ruffled your hair, the baboon that eyed your sandwich or even the moment the gorgeous view took your breath away. We all have a special moment we experience on a visit to the iconic site.
