This morning after breakfast, you will embark on your private Peninsula Tour and shark safari. Depart the city before daybreak for Simonstown harbor where you will board a boat in search of the ocean’s elusive super-predator, the Great White Shark. You will be in the capable hands of international shark experts and experienced marine biologists who interpret the wildlife spectacle as it unfolds. False Bay is one of the few places in the world to witness the incredibly rare behavior of breaching in pursuit of prey (most commonly Cape Fur Seals). Observe natural predatory behavior through the use of a seal decoy. An optional descent into the cage to view these super-predators underwater is an awe-inspiring experience that will not soon be forgotten.
Return to port and visit a colony of African Penguins, the only penguins indigenous to the continent, on Boulder’s Beach. Enjoy lunch at a coastal restaurant before entering the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park where you have a chance to see herds of Bontebok and Cape Mountain Zebra, Ostrich and the charismatic Cape Baboons. Climb to Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south westernmost point of Africa: Cape Point. Head home along the dramatic Atlantic seaboard and navigate Chapman’s Peak Drive, passing the fishing hamlet of Hout Bay, Llandudno and Bakoven (with their ghostly shipwrecks), the towering Twelve Apostles, and on through Camps Bay and Bantry Bay. Following your tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel to spend the evening at your leisure.
