Cape Point & Peninsula Tour in Cape Town | One of the most scenic excursions in the world, combining sights, fragrances, atmospheres and history wrapped up in fact, myths and legend. Our journey takes us south from Cape Town to False Bay which is famous for many reasons, one of which is that it is the largest breeding ground of sharks in the world. We follow the coast en route to Cape Point, visiting one of only four land based African penguin colonies in the world. As we enter the Cape Peninsula National Park, look out for a number of endemic species of animal as we wind our way through dramatic landscapes and vegetation to the tip of the continent .
On our return journey, we enjoy a scenic drive up the western side of the Peninsula and over breathtaking Chapman’s Peak Drive (if open as it is subject to closure if weather is bad) between Noordhoek and Hout Bay We then make our further along the Atlantic Seaboard through Camps Bay, stopping for photo’s of the towering buttresses of the 12 Apostles. Hereafter we pass through Clifton to Sea Point, ending our tour in Cape Town.
Guests will be met at any location of their choice in Cape Town city centre to start the tour. The spectacular Chapman's Peak drive which is cut into the 650m high Chapman's Peak leads the tour through the Town of Noordhoek to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. A botanical and scenic delight the reserve is home to several antelope species as well as a great diversity of flowering plants and birds. A highlight is sure to be the walk to the summit of Cape Point, where it is said, the stormy waters of the Atlantic are met by the calming influence of the Indian Ocean.
The tour traces the Seaboard on the way back to Cape Town with a visit to Boulders Beach. An attractive secluded haven, which comprises a tumble of huge round rocks on a sandy shore.
