Cape Peninsula Tours
The Cape Peninsula is based in the south western region of Africa and stretches out into the Atlantic Ocean. At its tip lies Cape Point, the southernmost point in Africa. It is here that the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. To its north, lies Table Mountain, the famed flat top mountain that is one of the new wonders of the world. The Cape Peninsula is around 52 kilometres in length and one of the most beautiful areas to visit. The roads along the Cape Peninsula are an engineering marvel. With all of its twists and turns along the rocky formations, the drive along it is said to be one of the best. No amount of words will describe the true beauty of the area. The many elevations experienced along the way, only add to this. There certainly is a lot to see and do along the way. Do remember to bring along your camera. Seaside, mountainous, floral, wildlife and culture makes this a photographic dream.

Guests will be picked up from their hotel by our driver/tour guide at around 8:30 in the morning. First stop is the Atlantic Seaboard beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. These are blue flag beaches which receive this internationally recognized status only after meeting the strict criteria of being safe, clean and providing ample amenities. The tour then heads to Hout Bay. The town is a charming little fishing village which is overlooked by the 12 Apostles Mountain. Little craft stores and markets are a famed part of this town and an excellent opportunity for gifts. If time permits a 45 minute Cape Fur Seal tour is available to Seal Island. Chapmans Peak is a wonderful vantage point to see just how marvellously, the city transforms from day to night. The road has 114 curves and is known to be one of best drives in the world.
The Cape Point Funicular is a high point of the day. It has the word fun in it, so how can it not be. Cape Peninsula tour guests take this funicular at the bottom station of Cape Point to get to a higher position. There is an old lighthouse at the top and from here you would enjoy unparalleled views of the area including the best point to view the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. The colour difference is visible to the naked eye and needs to be seen to be believed. The steep ride of the funicular goes through much greenery. The flora of the Cape Peninsula is also an admired aspect of the tour. Many indigenous species are located here, the most prominent of which are the many different types of Fynbos. The famed penguin colony is never short on entertainment. The antics of these penguins are sure to keep the entire group intrigued. The African penguin colony, also known as the jackass penguins are known for their funny calls. The colonial Simons Town brings old world charm to Cape Town. It is a naval town and evidence of this is noted throughout. Simons Town is rich with many fun outings. One particular interesting venture is the Scratch Patch Gemstone World. The eastern side of the Cape Peninsula, False Bay, is explored next at both Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay. Each of the bays and beaches have their own unique character and back story, and our guide is the key that will unlock them all to you. The Boyes Drive and Muizenburg surfers’ corner ends our Cape Peninsula tour. The tour ends at around 4:30 and guests will be driven back to their hotel. The Cape Peninsula tour is an adventure, not to be soon forgotten.
