My wife and I were the only persons on this trip. Our driver-guide was excellent: steady driver, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable guide, but also someone who knew when to leave you space to enjoy the many amazing sights offerd by this trip. It was a beautiful morning when we set off from Cape Town, and as a wee bonus we went up Signal Hill, below the Lion's Head, for some phenomenal views all around, from Table Mountain round to Sea Point and out to Robben island. A sea-trip to view the seals in Houts Bay was good even if we were a bit overwhelmed by a large Chinese party also on board - luckily they were a bit overwhelmed in turn by the swell of the sea. On to an ostrich farm via Chapman's Peak Drive, from whence amazing views of Houts Bay. After entertaining the ostriches we made our way on to Cape Point, where quite apart from the amazing site itself, we had an excellent al fresco lunch well served by Kenneth as birds like starlings zoomed around us. We took in the Cape of Good Hope (not the same as Cape Point) before making our way round into False Bay and Simonstown, with its slumbering penguins lurking in the bush beside the board-walk. Then it was on to the lovely Groot Constantia, the oldest wine farm in the Cape. A good tour here, and some interesting wine varieties sampled. Then finally home to the door at the Underberg in Tamboerskloof, tired but exhilarated by an amazingly varied and enjoyable day, and a long-held ambition fulfilled.
