What you’ll see
Your Cape Peninsula Tour from Cape Town commences with transportation towards picturesque Hout Bay. This destination, which sits between Cape Town and Cape Point is a tranquil fishing town that is home to many seals, little shops and much local appeal. Meander the boulevards and markets, or take an optional boat ride to Duiker Island (own cost) before advancing toward Chapmans Peak.
As you proceed toward the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve you’ll welcome the charming ride through the southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula. Appreciate ninety minutes here to tuck into a neighborhood lunch or meander the way to Cape Point where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
Stop at Simon’s Town on the False Bay Coast as you return to Cape Town and visit Boulder’s Beach (own cost) where you’ll locate a neighborly settlement of African penguins meandering the sandy shores. A while later, drive through Fish Hoek and Muizenberg, where you’ll see Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Here’s an opportunity to investigate this differing environment at the foot of Table Mountain and appreciate the magnificence of the Cape Floral Region that is portrayed at this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
