If you’ve got to go, go out with a bang. Africa finally runs out of land at Cape Point, the Indian and Atlantic oceans’ meeting point, and an awe-inspiring display of nature’s raw power. Jutting out like the prow of a ship, the promontory’s towering cliffs are battered by violent, surging seas and wild winds, the endless ocean ahead of you a graveyard to countless ships that have tried to round the treacherous cape. Spectacular and humbling, and getting there is half the fun. Penguins a little to the north, a heart-quickening journey along a precipitous oceanside corniche road, beautiful beaches and botanical gardens – the Cape Point knows how to thrill the visitor at every turn.
