Description:

The peninsula falls within the Table Mountain National Park which is world-renowned for its incredible biodiversity.

The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve spreads out over the rocky headland. It’s a protected nature reserve and home to an array of antelope, the rare Cape mountain zebra and other unique animal species. It’s also a haven for marine birds, with 250 recorded bird species found in the reserve.

Cape Point is the very pointy end of the Cape Peninsula. It’s an instantly-recognised landmark and is often mistaken to be the southernmost tip of Africa. There are two national heritage monuments on Cape Point that were built to honour the world’s most famous explorers: Vasco da Gama and Bartolomeu Dias (who was the first European explorer to round Cape Point in 1488).

Full Day Tour

 

 

The Cape Peninsula day tour starts with a tour of Cape Town City Bowl and continues past the V&A Waterfront to the main suburbs of the Atlantic Seaboard. This includes Green Point, Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay. We travel past the Blue Flag beaches along a gorgeous scenic route with the glistening Atlantic Ocean on your right and the towering Twelve Apostle mountains on your left.

Hout Bay, Noordhoek and Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

We make our way to the fishing village of Hout Bay, over the spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive and into the quaint coastal town of Noordhoek. The scenic peninsula drive takes us to the magnificent Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point.

In Hout Bay, you have the option of taking a boat cruise to Seal Island (not included in the rate) or strolling around the popular mariner wharf and harbour where you’ll make friends with the friendly seals that pop up for a pat.

At the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, we visit the famous Cape Point Lighthouse. You have the option of a short but slightly steep walk on a well-worn path to the lighthouse or you can take the funicular railway to the top. The view is spectacular and you may see whales and dolphins in the bay.

Simons Town and Boulders Beach penguin colony

We end the morning in Simons Town which is a legendary naval town overlooking False Bay. You have the option of visiting the famous penguin colony at Boulders Beach (entrance fee excluded in the rate) or spending time strolling down the historic main street of Simons Town and popping into its quaint shops and museums.

We have a bite to eat and drinks (for your own account) at the Simons Town Mariner Wharf.

Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenberg

After lunch, we head back towards Cape Town and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens travelling along the False Bay coastal route. We pass through the seaside towns of Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenberg.

The streets are lined with quirky bookstores, vintage clothing shops, surf shops and a collection of popular seaside restaurants and delis. We stop along the way to wander the streets, do a bit of shopping, watch the surfers in Muizenberg, whale watching if its whale season and to take photographs of the famous colourful Victoria-era beach huts.
