Tour overview

We start the day with a visit to the world-famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. These magnificent gardens, set on the slopes of Table Mountain, contain an amazing variety of indigenous plants and birds found on the Cape Peninsula. We then take a scenic drive around the foot of Table Mountain and ‘The Twelve Apostles’. We pass some of the most magnificent beaches in Cape Town - Clifton, Camp’s Bay and Llandudno - before travelling via the awe-inspiring Chapman’s Peak Drive (weather-permitting) and the misty cliffs of Scarborough to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. This nature reserve is recognised globally for its extraordinarily rich fauna and flora and its striking landforms. Animals seen here include Mountain Zebra, Bontebok, Eland, Chacma Baboons and up to 250 species of birds. After lunch at Cape Point, we walk up to the lighthouse, where we will have spectacular views of False Bay, the Atlantic, and the Cape of Good Hope – the south-western tip of Africa! It is possible to include a visit to the Boulders Penguin Colony this afternoon (although we usually skip this if you are planning to do our Whale Coast Tour, which includes a visit to the Stony Point colony). We then make our way back to your hotel via the picturesque seaside ‘villages’ of Kalk Bay, St James and Muizenberg.
