As Alexa said in her 48 Hours in Cape Town with kids blog: “Although one could spend days in the awe-inspiring Cape Point Nature Reserve and World Heritage Site, we were pressed for time and therefore decided to take a quick ride up to the viewing point with the Flying Dutchman Funicular. The trip along the 585m track to the lighthouse takes about 3 minutes.”
