Cape Peninsula Tour

Experience the natural beauty, breathtaking views and culture of the Cape Peninsula. From the Cape Town City Bowl to Cape Point and the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the Cape Peninsula Tour will allow you to experience the best the Mother City has to offer. This is a private tour and we can include a wine tasting with
cellar tour instead of Kirstenbosch gardens.

We drive along the Atlantic Seaboard past the 12 Apostles mountain range, Houtbay, Chapman's Peak drive (if open), Scarborough, Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. Walk or use the tram to the lighthouse. Lunch at my favourite restaurant and then visit the penguins at Boulders Beach.  If time allows we end the day at Kirstenbosch Gardens with a walk through this gorgeous garden which is also a Heritage Site.  We visit  the popular Boomslang (Tree Snake) Canopy Walk.

Itinerary

Drive from Cape to Hout Bay

Our journey starts  in the Mother City and we drive past Sea Point, Clifton, Camps Bay and 12 Apostles  on the Atlantic Ocean to Hout Bay where you can do an optional 40 min boat cruise to see the Cape Fur Seals. Hout Bay is home to all the big game fishing competitions and it is also a fishing village.

Cape Point & Cape of Good Hope

Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope via Chapman’s Peak Drive

We travel to Cape Point (where everyone thinks the two oceans meet, but geographically they in fact meet at Cape Agulhas) and Cape of Good Hope via Chapman’s Peak drive, one of the most scenic drives in the world! A photo stop here and there is included! You can take the Fernicular up to the lighthouse or if time allows, a brisk walk up or down is lovely...this is where you can  inhale the freshest air into your lungs as there is nothing between you and the Antarctic which  is just 6000 km’s away..

Boulders Penguin colony

Lunch is at a lovely restaurant with great sea views and the possibility of a whale passing by during season (July to November) and afterwards we visit the Boulders Penguin colony, the only place where humans and penguins (Jackass penguins or African penguins) swim together during summer and share the same beach.

Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

Our day ends at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and celebrating it’s 101 years as well as the new Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway called the Boomslang (meaning tree snake) which opened 17 May 2014.
