Cape Point Full Day Tour (scheduled)
See the towering headland known as Cape Point, magnificent beaches, breathtaking views from Chapman’s Peak Drive, Simon’s Town and Kirstenbosch Gardens in a single day.
The Cape Peninsula, which stretches from the city centre to Cape Point, is one of the world’s most scenic areas. Your exploration starts at 8:30am, taking you along along the Atlantic Seaboard via Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay, and stopping at a Llandudno look-out point before continuing to the quaint village and fishing harbour of Hout Bay with its magnificent mountain views and beach. Here you can take a boat trip to Duiker Island, which many people call Seal Island (optional).
Go over Chapman’s Peak, one of the world’s most breathtaking coastal drives, to Cape Point and the Good Hope Nature Reserve, where you’ll find magnificent fynbos vegetation, birdlife, zebra and endemic antelope species, historic lighthouses and shipwrecks. Cape Point is perceived to be the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian oceans.
After lunch at Cape Point (for your own account), you’ll head up the Indian Ocean side of the peninsula to Simon’s Town, which has charming Victorian architecture, a naval base and a large African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
After one last stop, at the world-renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the tour ends at ± 5:30pm.
