Enjoy a beautiful drive to Cape Point from Cape Town on a half-day tour. The scenic route of Chapmans Peak Road takes you along the water past Hout Bay Harbour and Boulders Beach, with its resident African penguins, to Cape Point. It’s part of Table Mountain National Park, and there are spectacular views from the Cape of Good Hope.

What You Can Expect

Cape Point Sightseeing Tour

Penguins on Boulders Beach

Meet your guide outside your central Cape Town hotel and then hit the road to Cape Point. The drive along the coast offers views of mountains and beaches en route to scenic Hout Bay. Then you’ll be on the famous (and famously gorgeous) Chapmans Peak Road, which connects Hout Bay and Noordhoek.

Arrive at the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and continue on to Cape Point. Enjoy some free time to walk up to the old lighthouse for the best views over the Atlantic Ocean. The rocky cliffs here have claimed many ships over the years - the area certainly earned its nickname of ‘Cape of Storms.’

Back in the vehicle, you’ll make your way back toward Cape Town from Cape Point through False Bay and Simons Town, an historic South African navy base. Time permitting, visit the penguin colony at Boulders Beach (own expense). Drive through Muizenburg, a popular beach resort town, before arriving back in central Cape Town.

Mostly driving tour, but otherwise a great tour. Great scenic views, baboons, and penguins. Recommend if want to see the sights on a condensed tour, but if you want more time to yourself and more walking the full day tour is probably better for you.
