Two Oceans at Once: Tip of Africa – A Photo Diary

This was easily my favorite destination in South Africa. What a moment. Looking out over the ocean. Sitting, taking in the fresh cool air. Walking. Bird-watching. And knowing you are standing at the very end of the African continent. I cry.

As someone who’s mad crazy about the wonders of this world, you can imagine how happy I was to have made it to the Southernmost point of Africa. Cape Agulhas marks the point where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean — the cold current of the west coast meets that of the warmer east coast. There are more countries bordering on two or more oceans. (whew! one down, more to go)

Offering a picturesque rocky landscape, unspoiled beaches, and a good place for excellent fishing grounds, it’s well worth driving 2.5 hours from Cape Town proper to get such sensational views!

Cape Agulhas can be easily navigated through Waze.

The landscape is just pure magic.
