There are three superb stores located near the Flying Dutchman Funicular upper and lower stations at which to purchase a range of Cape Point, and traditionally South African, memorabilia, curios and souvenirs. All stores provide their own unique take on natural beauty and fascinating maritime history that defines Cape Point, and are well stocked with the ultimate products to remind you of your trip to the most south western corner of Africa. The stores at Cape Point also provide a selection of essentials, should you have left anything behind.
Cape Point Logo Shop
The Cape Point Logo Store is the ultimate souvenir shop at the Point. Visitors can choose from a wide variety of merchandise branded with the Cape Point Logo, from t-shirts and fleece tops, caps and hats, mugs and teaspoons, to key rings, magnets and books. The Cape Point Certificate – the official record of a visit to Cape Point is sold here. Everyone will be able to find a memento to take home as a reminder of their visit to this beautiful place.
Cape Point Parks Shop
Cape Point falls within the Table Mountain National Park and it is the natural beauty and diversity of the floral kingdom that is celebrated in this store. Visitors can purchase bath and body products made from uniquely African extracts like rooibos and aloe; take home their own protea seeds or buy books to guide them through the flora and birds of the area. African heritage is also recognised in locally made bright ceramics and cloths. Clothing and accessories for adults and children complete the picture.
Lighthouse Five reflects maritime history and has a distinctly nautical feel with rich dark wood fittings and polished brass. Visitors can buy ship wheels or brass bells; or take home an intricate replica of an old sailing ship or an ostrich egg decorated with old maps. Great white shark posters, shark tooth jewellery, DVDs, globes and Ngwenya glass figurines are just a few of the treasures to be found. For the kids there’s a range of soft and cuddly marine toys, bright accessories and clothes.
