To get to one of the edges of Africa requires about a two hour drive from Cape Town, South Africa to the Cape of Good Hope near Capepoint. Along this is drive is Hout Bay, which has some of the most scenic views on earth. There is also the option to take a boat ride to see seals up close. This is not a good idea for those who easily get seasick or are afraid of losing their lives. The ride is incredibly rocky and there were quite a few times I thought I might fly overboard. 

At the Cape of Good Hope is a lighthouse that is not in use anymore, but provides an outlook out into the sea. While it is hot in Africa, this point of the continent is chilly due to the two oceans colliding. From every point of the cape, there are spectacular views of the ocean, and just a mile away is another hike to get the highest view.
