Cape Agulhas Reviews
I love Agulhas.
More info about Cape Agulhas
Search for Cape Agulhas on the Internet and you’re likely to see an image of the iconic candy-striped lighthouse that stands sentinel over the stormy seas at this, the southernmost tip of Africa.
Cape Agulhas is where the warm Indian Ocean meets the cold Atlantic Ocean and the unending churning of water results in choppy and unpredictable seas that have become a bit of a graveyard over the centuries for passing ships.
Portuguese sailors named the area Cabo das Agulhas, meaning Cape of Needles, for the strange lack of deviation from magnetic and true north on their compasses.
The area is rich in bird and aquatic life, along with an interesting cultural heritage, a place where ancient people once trapped fish. Nowadays, it’s a place where some arrive purely to stand at the southern tip of Africa, while others begin their 8000km journey of Africa to its northern crown somewhere in Tunisia.

About Self Catering
Self Catering places can be found from rural to urban areas and can vary in what they offer. They allow plenty freedom and is a great inexpensive way to spend your holiday. They have been widely classified as a “Home away from home”. This is a good option for guests who don’t mind cooking their own food, and are looking for a more independent and flexible form of accommodation. For budget and large families, we would recommend self-catering for a more personalised experience.
