The Cape Agulhas Lighthouse Museum was opened in 1994 and is the only one of its kind that is found in Africa. The museum is a wonderful historical source of not only the lighthouse but also of the old fish traps that were used hundreds of years ago by the indigenous Khoisan people, these traps are made out of stone!

The museum at Cape Agulhas Lighthouse invites you to explore and discover all that it has to offer. If you’re feeling fit enough you can make your way up the 71 steps to the top of the lighthouse, while this sounds rather far the view from the top is breathtaking and well worth the trip.

If you’re hungry for a bite to eat after the climb to the top, stop off at the Lighthouse Restaurant for a bite to eat.
