Our journey to Cape Point takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard coastal road. We pass the pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with their soft white sand and azure blue water. The formidable 12 Apostles Peaks rise above the road on one side, while sheer cliffs and incredible rock formations drop into the icy Atlantic Ocean on the other side. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape Peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity.
We arrive at the quaint fishing village of Hout Bay with its imposing Sentinel where you are offered an optional boat trip to Seal Island (own account +/- R105) or shop for souvenirs at the craft market at the harbor.
Our tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point. This area is home to magnificent ‘fynbos’, many species of buck and birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, and mischievous baboons. Enjoy splendid views of False Bay. Take the funicular (own account +/- R90) to the lighthouse for an even better vantage point of the two Oceans.
We’ll have lunch (own account) en route.
We visit Boulders Beach to see the African penguins (own account +/- R180) before arriving at the naval base of Simon’s Town, and then we venture inland to our last stop of the day at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers and offer a fitting end to a day filled with all the highlights the Cape has to offer.
