The Best of the Cape Tour is an intensive full day Cape Peninsula tour, certainly the best if you want to be sure you don’t miss anything!
Enjoy the trip from the city of Cape Town, along the winding coastal roads, and take in the spectacular views between ocean and mountains. This day is also a fantastic way to see the diverse fauna and flora that the Peninsula has to offer: birds, baboons, ostriches and dassies. Keep your eyes wide-open so that you don’t miss the opportunity to see them all along the trip.

South of the Peninsula, a breath of clean fresh air is simply quite fortifying! Cape Point offers an amazing sight of the Atlantic Ocean, which gives you the impression of being on top of the world. Below, at the legendary Cape of Good Hope, you will be able to feel the energy from the Atlantic Ocean, walking in the steps of the first explorers from the olden days.

The trip continues along the eastern side of the Peninsula, leading to the Wine Route. Simon’s Town and its charming alignment of Victorian houses will be en-route and will take you to the Boulders Penguin Colony, where you’ll be lucky to see these little animals living freely. The scenery changes progressively to make way for great stretches of vineyards, under the beautiful light of the receding sun. What better way to end a fabulous day than a glass of the famous South African Pinotage, with a piece of cheese, in a typical Wine Estate?

Clifton, Camps Bay and the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range

Clifton and Camps Bay are well-known beaches and much appreciated by the local people and tourists. They enjoy sunbathing or playing sports, especially at the Blue Flag beach which is quality guaranteed. At the foot of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range, Camps Bay beach is lined with bars and restaurants which provide a warm atmosphere.

Llandudno, Hout Bay & Chapman's Peak Drive

On the Atlantic Side, Llandudno is one of the most beautiful beaches of the Peninsula, with its long stretches of fine sandy shores. If you want to avoid the crowd, that’s the place!
A bit further on, you’ll discover an amazing view of Hout Bay. It’s a famous harbour where seals are regularly fed and are ready to make a spectacular show for some fish: better than the circus!
To go to Cape Point, the itinerary plans a drive through Chapman’s Peak if it is open, a spectacular scenic route with the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the mountain on the other side.

Cape Point

This is one of the must-see places in South Africa, between its history and legend. Overlooking the ocean from several hundred metres above, enjoy the bracing clean air and the spectacular view. You will probably quickly understand that there’s a reason why first explorers called it “The Cape of Storms”.

Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

Here you are: the mythical rocky point! Inside the Table Mountain National Park, this reserve hosts a rich biodiversity of Baboons, Zebras, Ostriches and about 250 species of birds. At the end of the Peninsula, you will feel part of the African heritage!

Penguins Colony & Simon's Town

Simon’s Town is a charming old English hamlet as is demonstrated by the Victorian architecture. Hosting the South African Navy School, this place is most famous for the Boulders Penguins Colony. By a footbridge on stilts, you can join the beautiful beach where you can see the animals in a constant frenzy. It is a protected area for this threatened species where they gladly pose for a picture, this is for the enjoyment of young and old alike.

Kalk Bay & False Bay

The quaint fishing village of Kalk Bay is one of the best places to have a rest and buy fresh fish. Photography lovers will be seduced by the light and many photo opportunities. This place offers a wonderful panoramic view of False Bay.


As you may have seen in Australia, surprisingly colourful beach huts occupy Muizenberg. It is on this beach that the locals come to swim and beginner surfers ride their first wave.


Founded in 1679, it is the 2nd oldest city in all of South Africa. It keeps a historical charm, thanks to the Cape-Dutch houses, the streets are all lined with majestic oaks, with the vineyards all around. It is a great place to immerse yourself in the Winelands spirit before a Wine Tasting.

Wine Tasting

You can’t leave South Africa without tasting the famous Pinotage. This red wine is a mix between Pinot Noir and Cinsaut, also called “Hermitage”, from which the name comes. You can only find it around Cape Town, so, if you’re a wine lover, this is your opportunity to purchase some good bottles of wine!
