This Cecil Rhodes monument still stands. Whatever history tells us about the man - and it wasn't all good or bad - he certainly had a vision even if he did get distracted by those shiny diamonds at Kimberley. You'll get a great view over and beyond Cape Town from this vantage point as well as some great photo opportunities....
The Rhodes Memorial is well worth a visit. Only 10 minutes out of the city near the University. Lovely cafe for coffee or a good lunch. Portions are BIG. Very friendly staff and great views of the city and docks.
A very impressive monument to Cecil Rhodes overlooking the University of Cape Town. The stone lions are impressive as is Rhodes atop his horse. The drive is wonderful with trees hundreds of years old. Was not crowded the day I was there. Students recently forced the University to remove a statue of Rhodes from the campus. I imagine the monument'...
This statue is a reminder of a colonial past which may have bad conotations for some, but there is really no need to have the place vandalised the way it has been. The view from there is spectacular and the nearby restaurant most enjoyable.
The views from the Rhodes Memorial over Cape Flat are impressive, but the memorial itself could do with a good clean. There is a good cafe there, which serves a tasty ostrich burger and craft beers! There is an easy walking track up to the memorial from UCT, which makes the two a good combination for a stroll.
