Morning or Afternoon departures available Private tours available – please enquire ! A must whilst in Cape Town. This Half Day Tour covers both the Atlantic and False Bay seaboards of the Peninsula. Spectacular scenery en route for which Cape Town is highly rated

Highlights Include:

  • Camps Bay and Chapmans Peak Drive
  • The Cape Of Good Hope and Cape point
  • The Boulders Penguin Colony (Own account)

We follow the coastal route which hugs the dramatic cliff side along the Atlantic Ocean, before being welcomed by the sentinel upon arrival in Hout Bay.

We drive through the picturesque fishing village and continue onto Chapman’s Peak Drive (if open) with its spectacular scenery. On one side of the road the mountain rises over 200 meters to the sky, and on the other side it drops dramatically into the ocean.

At Cape Point we drive through the nature reserve and admire the endemic ‘fynbos’ and we may even spot wild animals like Zebra, ostrich, antelope or even snakes!

You can walk up the steep pathway or ride in the Flying Dutchman funicular (own account) to the lighthouse where panoramic views await of the meeting place of the icy Atlantic and warm Indian Oceans. Sir Francis Drake said it was the fairest Cape he saw in the whole circumference of the Globe! Our return takes us along the Indian Ocean coast to Boulders Beach where we visit the Jackass penguin colony (own account).

You’ll capture wonderful photos of these cute creatures before continuing through the picturesque naval base of Simonstown on our route back to your hotel.
