The Half-Day – Cape Peninsula Tour will allow you to discover the Cape of Good Hope’s rich fauna and flora.

The Cape Peninsula Tour will take you along the Atlantic Seaboard, providing you with a chance to appreciate the fresh air, blowing from the cold Atlantic Ocean – passing the beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay. These beaches have been awarded Blue Flag status. They offer pristine white sand and beautiful glassy water, making them very popular among locals and visitors alike. The tour continues past the Twelve Apostle Mountains on its way to Hout Bay, along Chapman’s Peak Drive.

The fresh air experienced by the Atlantic Ocean will be a good way to prepare yourself for the invigorating and fortifying sea air of Cape Point.

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. Your friendly and experienced tour guide will point out the many diverse animals along the route. 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 beaches. 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  in between False Bay and the mountain. Along Kalk Bay Main Road lies a host of veritable treasure troves, from antique shops to costume shops, bakeries, restaurants and plenty more.

The Half Day – Cape Peninsula Tour will encourage you to come back to Cape Town, even if it’s only to continue exploring the rest of the Cape Peninsula!

Clifton & Camps Bay

Departing from Cape Town, the tour will take you along Victoria Road, from Sea Point to Llandudno. You will go through Clifton, a resort with luxurious houses and four beaches much appreciated by the local people and tourists below. Each beach has its fans, for example, the second one is the most popular for students and sportsmen, whereas the fourth one, easiest access, is more for families and an older generation.
All these beaches are known for their safety, quality and respect for the environment.
Further on, you’ll find another beach called Camps Bay. Camps Bay is situated in front of many good restaurants and a 5-star hotel, you might even see some surfers here.

Twelve Apostles Mountains

Near Camps Bay, is this part of the mountain range which has eighteen peaks, and not twelve. The name was given by Rufane Donkin in 1820, when he was Acting Governor of the Cape, and each peak has a different name.

Hout Bay

This charming harbour is especially known for its famous Fish&Chips and the seal island called Duiker Island. Cruises leave regularly from the harbour in order to take visitors to have a closer look at the seals in their natural environment. What’s more, you’ll be sure to have a stop on the mountain side in order to get a fantastic view of the whole of Hout Bay.

Chapman’s Peak Drive

The tour will then continue on the Chapman’s Peak Drive depending on whether it’s open. It seemed impossible to build a road on this mountain side, but it was done. It’s now an absolute favourite spot for tourists because of the amazing views all along the coast, there’s also a 150 metre half-tunnel built as naturally as possible in order to blend in with the landscape.
While appreciating the scenery, we urge you not to forget to scan the horizon in order to catch sight of some whales.


The name means “North Corner”. It’s a charming village located below Chapman’s Peak with farms and horses. A wild and protected beach is an advantage, especially because it’s a place near Cape Town where you’re allowed to go horse-riding.

Ostrich-viewing drive by

Quite near the entrance of the Cape of Good Nature Reserve is the Cape Point Ostrich Farm. Created in 1996, it’s the most southern Ostrich farm in South Africa. From the side of the road, you’ll probably be able to see one of these birds either on the side of the road, or in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve if you are lucky.

Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

It represents a 7,750 Ha area inside the Table Mountain National Park. It has a rich biodiversity, so perhaps you’ll be lucky enough to see bucks, baboons or zebras and several of the 250 species of birds. While driving through the park, you can enjoy the wonderful landscapes as well as the beautiful light. But don’t miss out on the opportunity to stop and take the traditional photo at the famous Cape of Good Hope sign.

Cape Point

Cape Point is a magical place in the midst of history and legend. This “must-see” offers amazing views overhanging the ocean several hundred metres high. You’ll be able to see the red and white lighthouse which was rebuilt in 1919 to replace the old one, located at the top of the Da Gama Peak 249 metres above sea-level. Reach it on foot or with “The Flying Dutchman” Funicular.

False Bay

False Bay or “Valsbaai” in Afrikaans, is an ideal place for people looking for tranquillity. At the Cape of Good Hope, you’ve got the Atlantic Ocean on one side and False Bay on the other. Have a look at the colour difference in the sea to find the border between the two. Technically, it’s still the Atlantic Ocean, but the water on the east side receives hot streams from the Indian Ocean.

Penguin Colony (optional)

The Boulder Penguin Colony is the perfect place to see the African Penguins. It is a protected area for this threatened species, a place where they gladly pose for a picture on the beach or between the rocks.

Simon's Town

This small town was British for a long time as demonstrated by the architecture and Victorian-style houses. Driving along the ocean by the coastal road, you’ll see the harbour and the South African Navy School.


Taking the M3, you’ll return back to Cape Town via Muizenberg where you’ll be able to see the colourful beach huts. It’s reputably the birthplace of surfing in South Africa. It’s a lovely place during the summer and the beach is very much appreciated by local people and tourists for swimming.


Constantia is one of the oldest and most prestigious suburbs in Cape Town. It is also the place where the first vines were planted in South Africa by the early settlers. As the story goes, during his exile on the island of Saint Helena, one of these Constantia wines were the only wine Napoleon would drink. The neighbourhood counts many luxury hotels and gourmet restaurants.
