Full Day Cape Peninsula Scenic Tour

On this tour, we depart from our hotel in Cape Town and travel along the Atlantic Seaboard where you will be enjoy some of the most breathtaking views. First, we drive through the coastal suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton. We will stop for a photo opportunity of Table Mountain's impressive Twelve Apostles. Then we travel on past Bakoven and Llandudno which are marked by shipwrecks that fell foul to the infamous Cape winter storms and on to the scenic fishing village of Hout Bay. From Hout Bay we head over the 600m heights of Chapman's Peak Drive with truly spectacular views of the coast line and Atlantic Ocean. Sightings of Southern Right Whales frolicking just offshore are very common from June to November.

Explore the rocky coastline and unique Cape Fynbos vegetation which is home to unique birdlife such as African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds amongst others. The opportunity is also there to view small animals such as the Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok, Ostrich and Baboon as we enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Climb to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay and stand on the most south western point of Africa - the fabled Cape of Good Hope.

Lunch will be at the restaurant of your choice – we will offer suggestions to help you decide. Following lunch we visit Boulders Beach for an exciting close up encounter with African Penguins. Then onwards through the historical naval village of Simons town and over yet another spectacular mountain pass; Boyes Drive, where you will take in views of the quaint fishing harbour at Kalk Bay as well as the seaside villages of St James and Muizenberg.
