At the tip of the Cape Peninsula, lies Cape Point, a place that continues to fascinate visitors with its scenery and rich fauna. 60 kilometers from Cape Town, this nature reserve encompasses 7 750 hectares, abounding with 250 bird species, baboons and the Cape Mountain zebra.
This is not a place only for nature lovers, Cape Point has also a rich maritime history, being an international icon. The first lighthouse was completed in 1860 and today it still stands at 238 metres above sea-level. Nowadays, it is used as the centralized monitoring point for all the lighthouses on the coast of South Africa.
