Cape Peninsula Full-Day Tour from Cape Town
Discover the south-western tip of the Cape Peninsula and marvel at some of the most spectacular views in the world. The drive from Cape Town passes steep mountains, secluded coves, and sweeping stretches of beach.
Your full-day tour begins with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburbs of Sea Point and Camps Bay, where you’ll have spectacular views of the Table Mountain range.
Continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, one of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets. Enjoy an optional short boat trip to Duiker Island, time permitting, to see the Cape fur seals that inhabit the island.
Next is the Cape Point Nature Reserve, covering an area of more than 17,300 acres. The reserve is home to a variety of wildlife, including baboons, rhebok, Cape mountain zebra, bontebok, and the elusive eland. It is alsonone of the world’s largest breeding grounds for tortoises.
You’ll see the spot where, as per legend, the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet and feel the brisk wind that is said to have curative powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, you’ll return to Cape Town by way of Simon’s Town, with a stop to visit the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
Stop at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens for a short walking tour, before passing the University of Cape Town, the Rhodes Memorial, and the Groote Schuur Hospital.
