This is not a "must see", but if you're passing or nearby, it's worth a look at the memorial, and the views. It's a little off the beaten track, a bit isolated, and slightly neglected. But if this is the kind of thing you like, then go for it. Personally, I was underwhelmed!
We celebrated my daughters 13th birthday with an afternoon tea at the restaurant. Our numbers had increased last minute and I was only able to notify them on arrival.

The name is controversial, Rhodes is now very much disliked by local youth especially indigent students etc etc. there is a restaurant. At the memorial. Don't stray off the main areas. There have been numerous attacks including rapes in the area... 更多
Rhodes memorial is out of the city a little (10 minutes only) but enough to be fairly quiet. Great views across the Cape flats and to the north. The memorial cafe is a very very good spot for lunch.
