ITINERERY

Our journey to the Cape Peninsula takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard, passing the pristine soft white sand beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, with the 12 Apostles rising above the chilly blue Atlantic Ocean below. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape Peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity. We arrive at the quaint fishing village of Hout Bay with its imposing Sentinel. A chance to enjoy a boat ride out to Seal Island (own account) or shop for souvenirs at the craft market on the quayside.

Our tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a great example of how the land once was many hundreds of years ago in its virgin state of Cape Fynbos. If lucky you may spot some small buck, numerous birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, Eland and of course the mischievous baboons. Enjoy lunch (own account) at a restaurant overlooking False Bay. Take the funicular (own account) or the footpath for a 20 minute walk up to the old Cape Point lighthouse to experience a breath taking panoramic of False Bay and the great Atlantic ocean

We visit Boulders Penguin Colony, home to the indigenous and endangered African Penguin, see these cute little creatures waddling in and out the water or nesting their young chicks or eggs.  An extra and optional visit can be made to the recreational side of the beach where one can actually take a dip in the calm sea for a bit of a swim.  The few penguins that  frequent this side of boulders can offer a more intimate and natural encounter, with possibly  one or two darting past you in the water.

We continue back to Cape Town, passing through Simons Town with our route either taking us over Ou Kaapse Weg or through the cosy little seaside towns of Fishhoek, Kalk bay and Muizenberg.

In 1580 Sir Francis Drake said the Cape of Good Hope was the “fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth”, who are we to argue?

It can get a little windy, but standing on the Peninsula imagining the expanse of ocean that stretches away from you all the way to Antarctica, it’s easy see why the Private Cape Peninsula Tour is easily our most popular tour and one that imprints itself on the minds of our visitors.
