What You Can Expect

Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town

Jackass Penguins at Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Leave your Cape Town hotel by air-conditioned minibus and head south along the Cape Peninsula to Hout Bay – a coastal neighborhood that sits roughly halfway between Cape Town and Cape Point. Now popular as an upmarket seaside resort, Hout Bay is a fishing village and has retained its friendly, small-town appeal. Enjoy time at leisure here – perhaps exploring independently or visiting nearby Duiker Island (own expense) to see its colony of gorgeous Cape fur seals.

Continue via Chapmans Peak to the southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula at the far end of Table Mountain National Park to reach Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. With roughly 1.5 hours at leisure here, you can explore on your own or perhaps visit one of the reserve’s cafes for lunch (own expense). Time permitting, stroll down to Cape Point to see the actual tip of the peninsula where the Atlantic and Indian oceans collide.

On the way back to Cape Town, visit Simon’s Town on the False Bay Coast for a look around and head to Boulder’s Beach (entry at own expense) to see the town’s cute colony of African penguins.

Return to your Cape Town hotel via the pretty towns of Fish Hoek and Muizenberg with your final stop at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens -- set at the foot of Table Mountain -- and explore its stunning grounds with your guide. Kirstenbosch grows vegetation and fauna that are totally unique to the Cape Floral Region and the site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. See the rare plants and trees on a walk around the Western’s Capes very own botanical wonderland.

Fantastic tour! Lupo, our tour guide guide was extremely knowledgeable and the scenery was stunning.

I had a wonderful time with a very informative tourist guide. I have only one small comment. I wished the time arrangement of each place should be allocated based on the popularity of that place. For example I believe most of us didn't feel like we should spend too much time in Hout Bay, but we definitely would love to spend longer in Cape Point or Cape of Good Hope.

We were thrilled to have a personable guide, Rodney. He was knowledgeable, friendly and just a great compliment to the tour. Never felt rushed at the various sights we stopped at throughout the tour. Although the weather was not the best he made the most out of everything that was planned.
