Description

Start your day with pickup from your hotel in Cape Town.

Passing through Muizenberg Beach, see the stretch of attractive colorful beach huts in the distance. Stop at St. James Beach for a few minutes to allow for some fun-filled photos with the colorful beach huts. Then, drive past Kalk Bay, Fish Hoek, and Simon's Town beaches. Make a stop at Boulders Beach to see African penguins in their natural habitat. Walk along the boardwalk to Boulders Penguin Colony, home to approximately 3000 penguins who spend their days frolicking in the False Bay waters and parading on the granite boulders. End the tour with the highlight of the day, The Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point Nature Reserve. Take a photo behind the Cape of Good Hope name board and explore the nature reserve whilst your guide shares stories about the Bartholomew Dias and Vasco Da Gama beacons.
