Description

Embark on a day of the Cape peninsula's discovery on a bus tour from Cape Town. Head to majestic Table Mountain, the Cape of Good Hope, Penguin Colony Boulders Beach, Muizenberg, and more to immerse yourself in the diverse culture and heritage of the region. Stop for lunch at your own expense and taste local flavors en route. Head out to your first stop: Table Mountain National Park, which was voted as one of the new seven wonders of the natural world. Let your guide accompany you into the lower cable car stastion straight up to the top stastion to explore the Table Mountain and enjoy it at your own pace. From Table Mountain drive past the upmarket residential area of Camps Bay, famous for travelers to take photographs of the sunset and to drive to the Atlantic seaboard of the peninsula. Continue past Llanduno and Hout Bay, a town known for its thriving fishing community. There, embark on an optional boat trip before driving on the world-famous road called Chapman's Peak Drive. Stop at Chapman's Peak Drive, a mountain-side road locally known as chappies with spectacular views of the ocean and mountains. The road is an engineering masterpiece that meanders for 10km along the giant Chapman's Peak Mountains that seem to drop into the ocean like an avalanche. At the Southern end of Chapman's Peak Drive is Noordhoek, which is an Afrikaans word translated into English as North-Corner. It was initially a farm where farmers use to plant fruit and vegetables to supply the ships calling from Simon's Town. Carry on to make a quick stop at an ostrich farm to see the largest bird in planet, learning about these flightless birds from a guide. Continue to Cape Point Nature Reserve, which is home to the most south-western corner of Africa (Cape of Good Hope). Rich fauna and flora makes this place a biodiversity hotspot. Stop at the Old Cape Point lighthouse, Cape Point Nature Reserve, and Cape Point South Africa. Walk or take an optional funicular up to oldest lighthouse for a 360-degree view of the national park. Your next stop is the penguins' colony in Boulders Beach, where you can see African Penguins at close range, before stopping in Simon's Town for lunch at your own expense. After having your fill, carry on to see Muizenberg's colorful beach huts from the top of the mountain. Then, head to Bo-Kaap Malay Quarter, before heading back to your accommodation in Cape Town central.
