Cape Peninsula: Private Full-Day Tour from Cape Town
The tour starts at 8:30 AM and takes you along the Atlantic coast to the Cape of Good Hope, the south-westernmost point of Africa. Drive to False Bay via Simons Town, Kalk Bay, Old Boy’s Drive, the small wine-growing region of Constantia, and along the Botanical Gardens to the city. The first stop you make is at the small fishing village of Hout Bay. There you will visit a traditional market and can book an optional boat trip to Duiker Island. On Duiker Island and the mainland you will find one of the largest South African fur seal colonies.
After the boat ride you will head along Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world. You will continue on through Misty Cliffs and Scarborough before you reach the entrance to Cape Point (entrance fees not included). You then travel 10 kilometers through the National Park before reaching the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point. The National Park is one of the most biodiverse in the world with over 1,000 native plants, the Cape mountain zebra, the giant eland (the world’s largest species of antelope), and 250 different species of birds.
After a small lunch you will head back along the False Bay coast. The southern right whale can be spotted here between July and August as they swim along the Cape coastline with their newborn calves. Afterwards you will stop at the penguin beach of Simons Town, where you can experience swimming with penguins.
After refreshment at Café Olympia or a snack at Kalkies you will head along Old Boy’s Drive to the wine region of Constantia.
