Cape of Good Hope South Africa

Photography by: Janusz Pabis The Cape of Good Hope (Afrikaans: die Kaap van Goeie Hoop, is a rocky headland on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa. There is a misconception that the Cape of Good Hope is the southern tip of Africa, because it was once believed to be the dividing point between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. In fact, the southernmost point is Cape Agulhas, about 150 kilometres (90 mi) to the east-southeast. The Atlantic and Indian oceans meet at the point where the warm-water Agulhas current meets the cold water Benguela current and turns back on itself -- a point that fluctuates between Cape Agulhas and Cape Point, about one kilometre east of the Cape of Good Hope
