Agulhas National Park

How to get there

It can be accessed via the N2 highway, which runs from Cape Town along the east coast via the Garden Route to Port Elizabeth, turning off at Caledon and passing through Bredasdorp when coming from the west. From the east, leave the N2 near Swellendam and pass through Bredasdorp to get to Cape Agulhas.

Alternatively, you can get there by scenic gravel road from the fishing village of Gansbaai via the rural hamlet of Baardskeerdersbos and the Moravion mission village of Elim. The nearest towns are L’Agulhas and the fishing village of Struisbaai.

Gate Hours

  • Main Entrance Gate: 07:00 - 19:00
  • Visitors with accommodation bookings can still enter and exit the gate after closing times but before 22:00 provided they inform reception of this.
