This morning after breakfast, you will be met by a Travel Beyond representative for your full day Peninsula Tour with a private guide, including entrance to Cape Point, funicular, penguins and Chapman’s Peak. Lunch will take place at the Harbour House.
Depart the city along the Atlantic Seaboard past the coastal suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton and stop for a photo op of Table Mountain’s towering Twelve Apostles. On past Bakoven and Llandudno, marked by shipwrecks, to the fishing village of Hout Bay. Here, board a boat to view the Cape Fur Seal colony on Duiker Island (weather permitting). On return, head over the 0.4mile heights of Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the world’s most spectacular passes, past the Cape’s longest beach near Noordhoek and the hamlets of Kommetjie and Scarborough – with a chance to sight Southern Right Whales just offshore from June to November! Explore the rocky coastline and unique Fynbos vegetation, home to birds like African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds and view other endemic fauna like Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and Baboon as we enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Climb (or ride a funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse, to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south westernmost point of Africa, the fabled Cape of Good Hope. After lunch at a coastal restaurant, visit Boulders Beach, for a close-up with a colony of African Penguins, then head home through the naval village of Simonstown and over Boyes Drive, taking in views of the fishing harbor at Kalk Bay and the seaside havens of St James and Muizenberg.
Following your tour, you will be transferred back to the hotel to enjoy your evening at leisure.
