Climbing a Lighthouse
We went on a tour of shipwrecks and lighthouses in Cape Town, including this one, Slangkop in Kommetjie, our tallest lighthouse. It is on the way to Cape Point and well worth a visit. It is one of the few "manned" or "personed" light houses in the world and Peter the lighthouse keeper will allow you on a tour. We were lucky enough to go inside and climb the many flights of steps, right to the top.From there are stunning views of Hout Bay and the back of Table Mountain. Well worth a visit!
