The Cape of Good Hope is one of the great natural places on Earth. Here at the southern tip of the African continent, two great oceans come together to form a most varied and unique ecological environment. Along with the nearby Cape Point, both capes are a part of the 19,266-acre (7,800-hectare) Table Mountain National Park, only about 40 miles (70 kilometers) south of Cape Town, South Africa.
