Trip Summary

The aim of the day is to explore the highlights of the Cape Peninsula, looking for any excuse to embrace the ocean and the great outdoors in this unique and spectacular habitat to explore one of the most unique marine habitats in the world.

We will start the day by heading towards the Surfers Mecca beach of Muizenberg for some photos, before stopping in the bohemian feel Kalk Bay for a coffee in one of our favourite bakeries/coffee shops. At Kalk Bay, we will walk through this very quaint old holiday town filled with antique shops, galleries, craftsmen, and vendors shouting as we go. Kalk Bay is a working fishing community filled with brightly coloured boats, some noisy seals, and even louder ladies hard at work processing the day’s catch! Try your hand at fishing off the harbour wall.

From here, we will drive along the coast towards Simon’s Town, where we will search for our own rogue penguins – a splinter colony away from the crowded boardwalks over the main breeding site, on a beach known mostly to locals. Perhaps if the weather is favourable you could test out your balancing skills on a stand-up paddleboard to really get to know the penguins in their own environment. (This is optional). Alternatively, our penguin conservationist will take you on an educational and enlightening penguin walk on the walkways bordering the penguin sanctuary.

Your guide will tell you more about the rich history surrounding this naval town, the museums and monuments provide plenty of insight into this historical harbour town.

We will then continue on to the Cape of Good Hope. In the peninsula reserve we will enjoy a gentle hike exploring secluded beaches, shipwrecks and this region’s unique wildlife while on the hunt for the Cape 5 (Ostrich, Baboons, Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and Tortoise).  Lunch will be a delicious Wild Picnic on the rocks at a secluded beach in a scenic location with an opportunity to explore the crystal-clear rock pools and enjoy animal sightings from your location. 

Have the opportunity to play some rugby, football or cricket with the children when our fun toy bag makes an appearance!

Wind the afternoon down with a visit to the local Noordhoek Farm Village where you can all enjoy a delicious artisanal ice cream at Kristen's Kick Ass Ice Cream, before heading back towards the city centre along the most scenic drive of all: Chapman's Peak.

End your day on one of the city's most scenic drives as you wind your way along Chapman's Peak drive, along which we will stop at a magical surprise location for an early evening drink as a local taking in the vast Atlantic Ocean as the sun starts to set.
