Cape of good hope, which means "Cape of good hope", is a very famous Cape in the southwest of Africa, 52 kilometers away from Cape Town, Republic of South Africa. The Cape of good hope was originally called "storm corner" because of the storm and rough waves.


Cape of good hope became a nature reserve in 1939. There is a lighthouse 2 kilometers east of the Cape of good hope.


The Cape of good hope used to be the eastern channel for Western explorers to lead to the rich, so it was renamed as Cape of good hope. Before the Suez Canal was opened, ships travelling between Asia and Europe passed through the Cape of good hope. Super tankers cannot enter the Suez Canal and still need to take this route.


Is the Cape of good hope the southernmost tip of the African continent?


The Cape of good hope is often mistaken for the southernmost tip of the African continent. However, the southernmost tip of Africa is Cape ogalus, which is about 150km southeast of the continent and looks across the Gulf of Fords. So the Cape of good hope is not the southernmost point.


The Cape of good hope has become the most dangerous maritime location in the world. Cape of good hope, located at the confluence of the warm Mozambican ogalus current from the Indian Ocean and the cold Benguela current from Antarctic waters. The strong westerly jet stream brings about waves all the year round. In addition to the damage caused by storms, there are often "killing waves" appearing here. This kind of wave is like a cliff in the front and a gentle hillside in the back. The wave height is generally 15-20 meters. It occurs frequently in winter, and there are rotating waves caused by polar wind. When these two waves are superimposed, the sea conditions are even worse, and there is a strong coastal current. When waves and currents meet, the whole sea surface rolls like a boiling pot, and ships sailing here are often in distress.
