Spend a day exploring the famous natural beauty and adorable wildlife of South Africa’s Cape Peninsular. Take photos at the Cape of Good Hope sign, see seals and penguins, and enjoy the Chapman’s Peak drive. You can even meet an ostrich at an ostrich farm. Leaving Cape Town behind, drive by Bantry Bay nestled in the foothills of the Lion's Head, an affluent suburb well known for its wind-free status. Pass by Clifton, a prestigious neighborhood in Cape Town where the four Clifton beaches are naturally divided by granite boulders. Enjoy a photo stop at Maiden's Cove for social media-worthy pictures with magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles and Camp's Bay Beach. Continue to Hout Bay where you can hop an optional 45-minute ferry ride to Seal Island, inhabited by more than 5000 Cape fur seals. If you prefer to keep your feet on dry land, you can see the seals from the mainland and can use the time to explore the local craft market. Next up is Chapman's Peak Drive, a Mountain side road locally known as Chappies. Chapman's Peak is an engineering masterpiece that meanders for 10km along the mountains that seem to drop into the ocean like an avalanche. There is a photo stop at the viewing point for views of the ocean and cliffs. Arriving at Noordhoek Farm Village, you have time to enjoy the breathtaking views of Noordhoek and have the option to enjoy some of the best coffee brewed in Cape Town at the Village Roast. Continue you for a quick visit to a local ostrich farm to see the largest bird on the planet. Cape Point Nature Reserve is home to the Cape of Good Hope, the most southwestern corner of Africa. Rich fauna and flora make this place a biodiversity hotspot as well as a great spot to grab a selfie with the famous sign. At Cape Point, you can walk or take an optional funicular ride up to the oldest lighthouse in South Africa for a 360-degree view of the national park. The area is also a hotspot for local birdwatchers. Your Cape Peninsular day tour continues at Boulder Beach. Here you are escorted to the colony of African penguins that call this place home. See the birds at close range and hear about the conservation efforts to ensure their ongoing survival. Continue to Muizenberg to see the colorful beach huts from the top of the mountain which are used as changing rooms for swimmers. Your final stop will be at the unique Bo-Kaap Malay Quarter. Here you have time to explore the streets lined with colorful houses and learn about the area’s rich history. Please note, the order of the itinerary on the day may be altered.
