Cape Point Full Day Tour


Explore the Cape Peninsula with a guided tour


Overview

Embark on an awe-inspiring tour to the towering headland known as Cape Point. Jutting out into the ocean, this rugged and rocky peninsula has become synonymous with the Cape of Storms since the explorer, Barolotmeu Dias, first set his sights on it in 1488. In those days, sailors saw Cape Point as both a useful landmark and a terrifying hazard depending on the time of day and the weather. No longer feared, Cape Point has become a popular attraction. Home to sweeping vistas, spectacular landscapes, and rich fauna and flora, there's no denying the beauty of this historic land formation.

Looking east, travellers can marvel at False Bay and the long, swooping curve that it forms on the southern Cape coastline which is dotted with crags and cliffs, sandy beaches, and turquoise waters.  At certain times of the year, the icy Atlantic Ocean, carrying the Benguela current, collides with the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. 

Magnificent beaches, breathtaking views, fynbos-littered hiking trails, and a collection of historic and picturesque coastal villages visited en-route are all part of our Cape Point Tour package.

Circle the peninsula en route to Cape Point 

This is an awe-inspiring tour to the towering headland known as Cape Point. Magnificent beaches, breath-taking views, historic and picturesque coastal villages are to be seen along the way. The Cape Peninsula is one of the world’s most scenic areas and stretches from the City centre to Cape Point, which is perceived to be the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

We travel along the Atlantic Seaboard via Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay, stopping at a Llandudno look-out point before continuing to Hout Bay, a quaint village and fishing harbour with magnificent mountain views and beach. An optional Seal Island boat trip (seasonal and weather permitting) is available (not included in cost). We then travel on through Chapman’s Peak, one of the world’s most breath-taking coastal drives, to Cape Point and the Good Hope Nature Reserve, which has magnificent fynbos vegetation, birdlife, endemic antelope species and zebra, historic lighthouses and shipwrecks.

After lunch at a nearby restaurant (not included in cost), we go on to historic Simon’s Town, a village with charming Victorian architecture, a naval base and a large penguin colony at the beautiful Boulders Beach. Boulders Penguin Colony is home to a growing colony of the vulnerable African Penguin. Wooden walkways allow visitors to view the magnificent penguins in their natural habitat.


Handy tip:

Keep a warm jumper with you at all times. Cape Town is known to have four seasons in one day!

Please note:

  • The drive via Chapman’s Peak pass is subject to the road being open. Should this not be the case we will take the alternate route via Constantia Nek and Ou Kaapse Weg.
  • An optional half day tour is available, but with so much to see and enjoy it isn’t advised.
