Robben Island Tickets, Penguins & Private Cape Point Tour
After an 8:00 AM pick-up from your hotel in Cape Town or the surroundings, your first stop will be a visit to the clock tower on the waterfront. From there, take a shared boat to Robben Island Prison Museum, departing at 9:00 AM. On the island, an ex-prisoner will be your guide and take you through the prison, where you’ll get to see the cell where Nelson Mandela spent so many years.
Upon return from the island at approximately 1:00 PM, your guide will be waiting for you again at the clock tower. After a break for a quick bite to eat, your group will proceed along the Atlantic Seaboard where you can admire the mountains on one side of you and the ocean on the other. Stop at Maiden’s Cove for a photo opportunity with a backdrop of the Twelve Apostles mountain range. Passing through Clifton, Camps Bay, Llundadno and Hout Bay, stop for photos on one of the world’s most scenic routes – Chapman’s Peak drive.
Next, stop at Boulder’s penguin colony to visit these enchanting creatures. Watch as these adorable birds play and frolic in the ocean. Your final destination will be the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve for a guided tour and a photo stop at this very popular landmark. From there, you’ll travel to Cape Point, where you can hike to the top of the lighthouse (or take the funicular). The return route will be via the Old Cape Road, with drop off at your accommodation between 5:00 and 6:00 PM.
