Cape Agulhas Tour

Cape Agulhas Tour

Cape Agulhas is certainly not as dramatic as Cape Point – that much is obvious. However, Cape Agulhas is the REAL meeting place of the two oceans right at the Southern Most tip of Africa!  A 3D relief map of Africa, 30 metres circumference, pays homage to the African continent and the design shows the direction of the compass and includes representation of several African landmarks. It is set against a background where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean meet.

 

 

Cape Agulhas Day Trip

For our Cape Agulhas Day Trip, we will depart in Cape Town at 7 o’clock and drive inland towards the picturesque towns of Napier and Bredasdorp. The sheer intoxicating beauty of the Overberg area is, quite frankly, reason enough to visit, Mountain-like hills fold into each other and the green and golden hues of the wheat fields are spectacular to witness.

We will visit the unique Lighthouse Museum, a building carved from limestone. The design of the building was inspired by the Pharos of Alexandria.

The Cape Agulhas Lighthouse Museum was opened in 1994 and is the only one of its kind that is found in Africa. The museum is a wonderful historical source of not only the lighthouse but also of the historic fish traps.

If you’re feeling fit enough you can make your way up the narrow winding staircase with its 71 steps to the top of the lighthouse, with breathtaking views over a treacherous coast, aptly called, the graveyard of ships!

Also clearly visible from the top are the old fish traps, made out of stone, that was used hundreds of years ago by the indigenous Khoisan people can be seen from the top of the lighthouse.

3D Map of Africa at the southernmost point of Africa

A new attraction, a 3D relief map in 30 metres circumference has been built at the Southernmost tip of Africa in the Agulhas National Park, to boost tourism for the surrounding area and was unveiled today.

The symbolism of the structure as a map pays homage to the African continent and the design shows the direction of the compass and included representation of several African landmarks. We will visit the structure which is located against a background where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean meet.

If you’re hungry for a bite to eat after the climb to the top, stop off at the Lighthouse Restaurant for a bite to eat.

The Lighthouse Museum is but a stones’ throw from the real meeting place of two oceans, the Indian and the Atlantic oceans, where we will visit the small cairn which marks the spot where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans mix at the Most Southern tip of Africa!
