Cape Peninsula, Cape Town
Your guide will collect you from your Cape Town hotel, leaving the city behind with your first stop in Hout Bay, where an optional boat cruise to Duiker Island can be enjoyed. Duiker Island is famous for its colony of gorgeous Cape fur seals. Hout Bay is a coastal neighbourhood that sits roughly halfway between Cape Town and Cape Point. Now popular as an upmarket seaside resort, Hout Bay is a fishing village and has retained its friendly, small-town appeal.
Experience breath-taking views along Chapman’s Peak all the way to Cape Point, Africa’s most south-western point of the continent. Visit Cape Point lighthouse on foot or via funicular, then continue to Boulders Beach to visit the penguins before heading back to Cape Town via the pretty towns of Fish Hoek and Muizenberg with your final stop at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens – set at the foot of Table Mountain – and exploring its stunning grounds with your guide. Kirstenbosch grows vegetation and fauna that are totally unique to the Cape Floral Region and the site was declared a UNESCO Word Heritage Site in 2004. If you are here in summer a number of sunset concerts will be given. Bring along a blanket and a hamper of goodies and enjoy the lovely setting and music!
