After visiting the Cape of Good Hope where everyone believes the two oceans meet (Indian and Atlantic), why not take a scenic tour under 3 hours to where geographically, the Indian Ocean Mozambique-Agulhas Current and Atlantic Ocean Benguela Current actually meet! The place of magnetic change! To the eye, Cape Agulhas is not that dramatic as Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope, but this quiet peaceful village is a special place to see and experience. The 2nd oldest lighthouse built in 1848 with it's 71 steps and 12 million candlepower stands watch over the end of Africa and it is worth a visit. Take pics of the shipwreck, the Meishu Maru, a Japanese ship that ran aground in 1982 with17 crew that managed to swim safely to shore.
Stop in Bredasdorp for optional visit to Shipwreck Museum or Candle Factory, lunch on the go or in Napier, the centre of a prosperous wheat and wool farming area. Spectacular views await on the way back to Cape Town. Route to be discussed as it is a private tailor made tour.
