Timing - Cape Point & Cape of Good Hope Self-drive

Jump to last reply

We are planning on renting a car on our last day in Cape Town on our February 2016 trip. The plan is to do the Cape Point/Cape of Good Hope loop and then head up to Franschhoek. I am looking for advice on how early we should get started to avoid the tour buses and to complete the route in time to arrive in Franschhoek in time to check in and enjoy a 7:00 pm Valentines Day dinner. We want to see penguins, ride the funicular up to the light house at Cape Point and see as much as we can on the drive. If there is a good place for a hike, we'd like to know that. Also, how much do you pay the guys that watch your car? Any advice would be appreciated.
