Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town

Jackass Penguins at Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Your Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town kicks off with hotel pick-up and air-conditioned minibus transportation towards picture-perfect Hout Bay. This destination, which sits halfway between Cape Town and Cape Point is a quiet fishing village that’s home to dozens of seals, small shops and lots of local charm. Enjoy leisure time to wander the streets and markets, or take an optional boat ride to Duiker Island (own expense) before making your way to Chapmans Peak.

You’ll enjoy a scenic ride through the southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula as you make your way to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. Enjoy 90 minutes of free time here to tuck into a local lunch or wander the path to Cape Point where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. 

Make a stop at Simon’s Town on the False Bay Coast as you make your way back to Cape Town and opt to visit Boulder’s Beach (own expense) where you’ll find a friendly colony of African penguins wandering the sandy shores. Afterwards, drive through Fish Hoek and Muizenberg, where you’ll stop at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Take some time to explore this diverse ecosystem at the foot of Table Mountain and enjoy the beauty of the Cape Floral Region that’s proudly displayed at this UNESCO World Heritage Site. 

Your tour ends with drop-off at your Cape Town hotel.

This was a great day out thanks largely to our driver Allen . We ran out of time before seeing the full itinery - the light was beginning to fade! Also thanks to the administration team who went to great trouble to reorganise our trip due to a disruption of our travel plans.

Nice overview of the peninsula. The program was perfect for a one day excursion. The botanical garden will deserve another day.
