Cape Point recently launched their #BeTheFirst campaign with a special Yoga Experience. I was lucky enough to be invited and woke up super early on a Wednesday morning in October to meet up with fellow bloggers.
We started with a stop at the Cape of Good Hope where they enjoyed beautiful views, a fresh cool wind, and spectacular views. I took advantage of the photo opportunities at the iconic Cape of Good Hope sign. Did you know that the Cape Of Good Hope is the most South-Western Point of the African Continent? But be warned, it can get very windy there!
Next, we enjoyed a calming and soul-filling yoga experience on the Two Oceans Restaurant deck. I have tried Yoga maybe once or twice and thought I would totally embarrass myself, but I actually kept up. Yoga instructor Beatrice Gilbo took us through the yoga poses with ease.
After building up quite an appetite we were treated to a scrumptious breakfast at the Two Oceans Restaurant. The breakfast menu included all of the favourites such as bacon and eggs, Eggs Royale and warm, buttery flapjacks.
After yoga and breakfast, we took a ride on the Flying Dutchman Funicular. We all hopped on the funicular for the 3-minute journey to the top station with its great views and access to the old lighthouse.
Because early birds at Cape Point get:
Great light and morning views – this makes for great Instagram-worthy shots with no other tourists photobombing your selfie.
No queues – that’s right, no queues. One of the joys of being the first at Cape Point is that everyone else is still asleep. You snooze, you lose.
Amazing breakfast (think toasted lemon brioche, smoked trout, baby spinach, poached eggs, sauce hollandaise)… yum! And to top it off, you’ll have gorgeous views over False Bay while enjoying your latte.
Cheaper funicular rates – from 1 November they’re launching differential rates for the funicular. If you ride the funicular between 9 am and 12 pm, you pay R70 for a return ticket (normally R80).
