Spectacular and literally breath-taking. I have had the great fortune to visit many impressive places around the globe, but this bucket list item is now near the very top of my list as far as stunning natural beauty. It exceeded my expectations in every way. I'm already planning a return trip to South Africa for next year.
Great views at the very tip of the continent. You must see this, go early, beat the tourists and crowds. Great photo ops and the chance to see some wildlife too, mostly baboons and ostrich. I love it there.
