Cape Point- never mind
« on: October 21, 2009, 01:21:58 pm »
Does anybody know if Cape Point allows bikes in?

Want to take a 'roadie' on a Breakfast run tomorrow and would want to show him Cape Point if possible.

EDIT: Found their details, they do.

Pop in to your closest Tourism office before you go and get a map of the area. There's a huge amount more to see and do apart from simply going down to the point. For example, on your way out, a left turn takes you to some fantastic pools where a swim on a nice day makes your visit all the more worthwhile.

On your way back, don't forget to make a stop at Silvermine. Great scenery and a massive reservoir. There's braai facilities where you can light one up and cook up your own lunch if you have the time.

Cheers

Lawrence

Don't go if you have not got a "Wild Card".

Try R75... We gave it a miss anyways. But man was it a lekker ride. Glorious weather and no cars on the road.

Am a Tour Operator and in there very often on the Bikes.

Costs R75 per Adult to get into Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
Oh, and a Coke costs R12 and a bitter sarmie cost from R35 onwards at the Light House Shop.
A WILD CARD and packed Picnic Lunch is the way to go......

Just be weary though because I have recently noticed Speed Camera's at the approach to the Buffelsfontein Info Centre and it seems sometimes that those big Tourist Busses hate Bikers.

Within the Reserve, the road from the Cape of Good Hope turn off up to the Cape Point Light House is being refurbished but for some reason have dug trenches across the road every 100 metres or so and even though they are covered up with gravel, every vehicle that drives over this patch, opens these trenches again.

As Tourists are driving along admiring the view, Baboons, etc, they, see one of these trenches at the very last second and either slow down very quickly or swerve away from it. Be very wary of this.

Otherwise enjoy.
