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?
