THERE ARE TWO TOURS AVAILABLE, depending on whether you'd like to walk up to the lighthouse or catch the Flying Dutchman Funicular to the top. We suggest you download both tours now, so you can decide what you'd like to do when you get to Cape Point.
Take a scenic walk around this promontory at the tip of the Cape Peninsula with its abundant fauna, flora, and beautiful beaches.
This audio guide immerses you in the rich history of Cape Point, its lighthouses and even ghost stories and legends. It's an informative tour of an iconic South African tourist attraction.
This tour takes you to the top station on the Flying Dutchman Funicular, and leads you around the various lookout points and up the steps to the old lighthouse, before heading back down the funicular for your trip back to the parking lot. Included in the tour is the Lighthouse Keeper’s Trail, a two-kilometer walk that takes you down a narrow path along a sheer cliff face towards the new lighthouse before returning on the funicular – this part of the walk is weather-condition dependent.
