This half-day tour introduces you to the scenic wonders of the Cape Peninsula which is an iconic natural landmark in Cape Town.
The dramatic rocky peninsula stretches 30 kilometres from Table Mountain on the northern end to the southernmost tip that plunges into the icy Atlantic Ocean. It falls within the Table Mountain National Park which is world-renowned for its outstanding biodiversity.
A highlight of the tour is Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve which is a wild protected wilderness area 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.
We pass through the quaint and vibrant seaside towns that stretch along the length of the Cape Peninsula, which lie nestled between the towering mountain cliffs and the glistening Atlantic Ocean.
Cape Town City Bowl and Atlantic Seaboard
The day starts with a drive past 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 at the southernmost tip of the rocky headland.
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 stop in Simons Town for refreshments. 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.
Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenberg
We make our way back to Cape Town travelling on the False Bay coastal route that runs parallel to the Atlantic Ocean. 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 arrive back in the city mid-day (13h00 for morning tour) or early evening (18h00 for afternoon tour).
