The Cape Peninsula Tour will take you along the Atlantic Seaboard, passing the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay – which have been awarded Blue Flag status.. These beaches offer pristine white sand and beautiful clear water (if slightly cold), that have made them very popular with locals and visitors alike.. The tour continues, passed the Twelve Apostle Mountains on it’s way to Hout Bay, along Chapman’s Peak Drive..
In Hout Bay – a small fishing village often jokingly referred to as “The Republic of Hout Bay” by the locals; you will find a pristine beach, fresh fish market and plenty of restaurants to choose from.. You will also have the option to visit Seal Island – where you’ll see hundreds of seals, sunbathing on the huge island rock and cavorting in the water..
Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is one of the most famous landmarks in Cape Town, and for good reason. Situated on the very tip of the peninsula, with the Indian Ocean on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the area spans a landscape that has rugged cliffs, lush fynbos and vast open spaces – no Cape Town tour is complete without a visit to Cape Point.
If you’re an animal lover, the Cape Peninsula Tour is a must.. The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve has Ostriches, Antelope, many different bird species and of course, the baboons – often appearing in small tribes at Cape Point.
The highlight though, will be the Boulders Penguin Colony in Simon’s Town – where a parade of penguins waddle between rocks or on the white sandy beach.. Watching these adorable flightless birds is diverting and very calming for both young and old..
The Cape Peninsula Tour will continue along the Main Road of the quaint hamlet Kalk Bay – nestled between False Bay on one side and the mountain on the other.. Along Kalk Bay Main Road lies a host of veritable treasure troves, from antique shops to costume shops, bakeries, restaurants and plenty more.
Continuing further to Muizenburg – a world renowned surfing spot; where locals and visitors alike, come together in appreciation of the wonders of the sea… Shark-spotters keep a close lookout for any potential danger roaming the bay.
Finally, in The Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – where visitors are offered a haven of peace and serenity at the foot of the Devil’s Peak Mountains; explore the new curved steel and timber bridge – Centenary Tree Canopy Walkway – informally called ‘The Boomslang’, that winds and dips its way through and over the trees of the Arboretum, all inspired by a snake skeleton.. Or just relax and absorb the view of Cape Town’s diverse flora kingdom..
