While this park is surrounded by city, it has its own unique accommodation options. Ideal for day guests, those who wish to stay in the city and those who’d rather stay overnight in the park, guests will find that there is accommodation to suit their specific tastes while they are here. The park offers tented camp accommodation as well as guest houses and cottages.
For the guests who are travelling on a budget or who are looking for a more rustic style of accommodation, the tented camps are a must. The tented camps include Hoerikwaggo Tented Camp under which the Smitswinkel Tented Camp and Slangkop Tented Camp, which is situated next to the ocean, falls. Each camp is surrounded by gorgeous nature.
Guests will need to share communal kitchens as well as communal bathrooms. Each camp can accommodate a maximum of 12 people and they are easily accessible by car. Bedding is provided at Smitswinkel and Slangkop Camps, and all of the camps are self-catering.
Smitswinkel Camp is situated across from the Cape Point entrance and it is shaded by towering Flowering Gum plantation trees. It is the perfect point from which to explore the South Peninsula and it is quite close to Boulders Beach. Those wanting to get even closer to nature will find that the best place to stay is Slangkop Camp. This camp has been built within a grove of indigenous Milkwood trees and each evening guests can watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. The camp is just 150 meters away from some of the best surfing spots and there are shops and restaurants close by.
