What To Expect

On this full-day tour, travel around the entire Cape Peninsula, located at the far southwestern portion of the African continent. Cape Point, South Africa and the Cape of Good Hope are situated at the southern end of the peninsula.

Enjoy the Chapman's Peak Drive, one of the world's most beautiful scenic routes. Cruise past white-sand beaches featuring crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean

Visit the small fishing village of Hout Bay, which features a beach, fresh seafood, busy markets, and a plethora of restaurants. This suburb is a must-see location on any Cape Town tour. Also, consider a short cruise (at your expense) to see the thousands of seals that inhabit the aptly named Duiker Island (Seal Island).

Cape Point, of course, is the popular local nature reserve and one of the most famous landmarks in Cape Town. Located at the very tip of the peninsula, with the Indian Ocean on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the region is highlighted by rugged cliffs, lush fynbos, and vast open spaces.

Elsewhere, there’s Simon’s Town, home to the South African Navy, as well as Boulder's Penguin Colony, an inlet featuring a protected colony of African penguins (admission at your expense).

Finally, walk through the famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, widely considered one of the great botanic gardens in the world, brfore return to your hotel (selected hotels only).

Travelling alone. This was a great tour carried out by local operator African Eagle Daytours PTY. Driven around the Peninsula Coast with other tourists as a single group. Started from the west-side of the coast Camps Bay, Hout Bay, then down south towards Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope, then up along the east coast to Boulders Beach, and then finished off with Botanical Gardens. Tour guide was knowledgable and stopped in some special photo spots, especially on Chapman's Peak Drive to capture Hout Bay from high above!

Ho scelto il vostro tour perchè era prevista una audio guida in italiano. Invece una volta a bordo abbiamo scoperto che era presente unicamente lingua inglese e tedesca. pertanto non abbiamo di fatto usufruito della guida. Inoltre nella prenotazione non era specificato che il mezzo di trasporto fosse un minivan da 9 persone, strette e compresse tra di loro, con il risultato di un viaggio di otto ore estremamente scomodo.

Ótimo programa! O participante pode ter uma visão bem completa da Península do Cabo e suas atrações: Cape Point, Cabo da Boa Esperança e reserva dos pinguins. Recomendo fortemente!
