Depart from the venue and enjoy the scenic views as we drive over Kloof Nek Road and down towards the coast to see the pristine beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. We drive past Hout Bay, which was once a fishing village, but is now a popular residential area.
The tour continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive – if open, with a 200meter drop on one side of the road and a 200meter rise on the other, as we make our way south, following the Atlantic Ocean until we reach Cape Point. Take the funicular (Funicular for own account +/- R90) to the lighthouse for an even better vantage point.
Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, Sir Francis Drake the Explorer once called it “the fairest Cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the Globe”. And rightly so, as it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa.
We pass the quaint naval base of Simon’s Town and we continue along the Indian Ocean (False Bay), en route to see the African penguin colony which has become well established at Boulders Beach (for own account +/- R180) before ending the tour back at the venue.
