Our journey to Cape Point takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard coastal road. We pass the pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with their soft white sand and assure blue water. The formidable 12 Apostles Peaks rise above the road on one side, while shear cliffs and incredible rock formations drop into the icy Atlantic Ocean on the other side. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity.
Start your half day tour to Cape Point by driving along the rugged Atlantic coastline with its towering mountains and white sandy beaches. The tour takes you past the beautiful bikini beaches of Sea point and Camps bay, also home to the most expensive real estate in South Africa. Then continuing through the town of Hout Bay – home to the fishing harbours. Then the tour continues through the world famous Chapman’s Peak Drive (if open) a 9 km route with 114 curves, making it one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. We will stop at the highest point along the way to take photos of the breathtaking sights. With a 200 meter drop on one side of the vehicle and a 200 meter rise on the other side, as we make our way south, following the Atlantic Ocean until we reach Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. The most romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian oceans . Arriving at the Cape of Good Hope Nature reserve, you will make your way down to Cape Point. Look out, for pelagic birds of which there are a large variety, zebra, eland, and the many species of reptiles and small mammals. Chacma baboons are common here, especially at the point itself. Don’t be tempted to feed the baboons and rather stay well away, as they can be aggressive. You have the option of either walking or taking a funicular ride to the upper lighthouse right at the tip of Cape Point where you are able to look back in awe at the beauty of the Cape peninsula and the surrounding areas. After visiting the lighthouse at Cape Point we head to False Bay and stop at Boulders Beach to view the endangered African Penguin at the world class colony. We then pass through the naval town of Simon’s Town. Thereafter, we drive through the towns of Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg and then along Boyes drive where we stop for a quick photo shoot of the beautiful views. And then back to your hotel.
