Cape of Good Hope II (South Africa)

The Cape of Good Hope at the southern end of the African continent is part of a nature reservation on the cape peninsula which includes trails and 40 kilometers of coastal line. The reservation now belongs to the Cape Peninsula National Park.

The first sailor passing around the cape at the south point of the cape peninsula in 1488 was Diaz. He called it the “cape of the storms.” A lot of ships never left these waters again.

A steep cliff marks the south end of the peninsula. Tourists may still visit the old lighthouse. The Cape of Good Hope is not the most-southern point of the continent. This point is some kilometers away at Cape Agulhas, where the Atlantic meets the Indian Ocean. The panorama shows the Cape Point.
