Come and find out. Breathtaking scenery from the highest sea cliffs in Africa.
7750ha of unspoiled landscape and indigenous flora.
Various species of game including baboon and rare antelope called Bontebok.
On our drive to Cape Point choose from one of the following to add to a fuller experience of what the Peninsula has to offer…..
(A) A 40-minute boat cruise which will allow you to see about 9000 Cape Fur Seals all sitting on a small island off the coast of Hout Bay. Breathtaking scenery but not for people who suffer from sea sickness.
(B) Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. This tour is for garden and bird lovers. One of the world’s most famous gardens, Kirstenbosch is a showcase of all the Southern African flowers and trees. Beautiful views. Excellent shopping.
The drive to Cape Point also includes a photo stop at a the top of Chapman’s Peak Drive to enjoy the views, and a visit to the African Penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach, Simon’s Town. Lunch is taken at a suitable restaurant with amazing views, en route.
(C) After your visit to Cape Point AND the Cape of Good Hope, you can finish the tour with a stop over at a winery in the Constantia Wine Region, or you can visit a local micro-brewery, on your way back into Town.
(D) Request to explore the Bohemian seaside “village” of Kalk Bay located next to a small fishing port, famous for it’s quirky coffee shops and antique stores: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8L-nZgVczyU
(E) Before we return you to your hotel, if there is time, you can visit the impressive Norval Contemporary Art Gallery and Sculpture Garden that exhibits leading African artists, in a unique location overlooking Table Mountain. http://www.norvalfoundation.org/
Our experience has shown that people like to spend longer at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, so we do not usually include Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in these tours. We recommend that one does the Gardens as part of a city tour, or as a full day tour on it’s own for people who are botanists or birdwatchers.
R3850 for guide and luxury PRIVATE vehicle
Entry fees excluded to allow for maximum flexibility. Lunch can be booked at a suitable seaside restaurant, but is for your account.
