Tick it off your list but there's not actually that much to see or do here. Take a photo next to the sign and that's about it.

While riding through the reserve, you could possibly see ostriches and baboons roaming around. The natural scenery was beautiful. There are also various places where you could pull of to take photographs but remember not to feed the wild animals.

Cape of Good Hope + Constantia itinerary help. Is it possible to do a full day self drive trip to the following locations? - Muizenberg - Kalk Bay - Simon's Town - Boulders Beach - Cape Point - Cape of Good Hope - LUNCH at Constantia (La Colombe) - Kommietije - Noordhoek - Chapman's Peak Drive - Hout Bay Please advise also on the suggested sequence? We want to avoid rushing from one location to another, any pit stops that I could remove from the itinerary? Thanks!

We will be staying at the v & a waterfront before moving on to Hermanus, thought about taking in the cape of good hope on the way. How long would it take using m6 for camps bay & down the Atlantic coast as far as is possible then coming back up from the point via boulders beach & taking in false bay before joining the n2 & heading south east for Hermanus?
