Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve review 2 Users say 1/5 Rate it

At the tip of the Southern Peninsula lies verdant Cape Point. The vast, beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve was declared part of the Cape World Heritage Site in 2004. Trails within the park lead to shipwrecks, tidal pools, lighthouses and Antonie's Gat, the hiding place of a slave turned Muslim saint, and you'll be hiking in the company of wildlife including curvy-beaked sugarbirds and cape mountain zebra. If you don't feel like walking, climb aboard the Flying Dutchman funicular that will take you all the way from Cape Point to the upper lighthouse, with its vantage point said to resemble the end of the world.

I am in Cape Town for a business and finally found time to visit this place-to-visit. I was driving like crazy and so excited. I came to gate exactly at 17.02 and was shocked by answer that gate is closed at 17:00 and I am not able to get in. I tried to beg the guy at gate but he just told me he is not going to open gate.

Not really nice attitude! I wish I met someone who can be more sensitive and full of understanding. I explained I am flying tomorrow early morning to JoBurg and most likely wont come so soon to SA and I am willing to the route very fast to be out of the park before closing. Didn't work. I am very very disappointed.

Aproximately how long would a drive from Cape Town via Campsbay and back via Simonstown take. Including taking the flying Dutchman to the ligthouse.
Your answer wil be hugely appreciated. Regards
