Tour Description

Cape Point, at the south western edge of the Cape Peninsula, has some of the most amazing views in the planet. The journey there is just as impressive, passing imposing mountains, remote coves and pristine beaches.

Our trip starts with a picturesque drive along the Atlantic coast; passing through the suburbs of Camps Bay with its magnificent displays of the Twelve Apostles, part of the Table Mountain range. Next is the fishing village of Hout Bay, one of Cape Town’s most charming places. Here you take a quick boat trip to Duiker Island (for own account & time permitting) to view the Cape Fur Seals, which dwell on the island. From here we travel to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, consisting of more than 17,300 acres of native fauna and flora. Here is a variety of wildlife that includes baboons, rhebok, Cape Mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world’s biggest breeding grounds for tortoises. Bird-watchers, too, will find many fantastic species to encounter.

At the shore of the peninsula you’ll be able to see the union of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans (as per legend), and may even feel the brisk wind that is dubbed the “Cape Doctor” for its rumoured healing powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, we’ll return to Cape Town by way of Simon’s Town, where we'll visit the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach (for own account), then onto Fish Hoek fishing village and Muizenberg. Prior to our return to Cape Town, we’ll stop at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens for a brief walking tour of the gardens.
