We depart after picking you up at your hotel, along the spectacular Atlantic Seaboard. We drive through the coastal suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton. We will stop for a photo opportunity of Table Mountain's impressive Twelve Apostles. We then travel on past Bakoven and Llandudno which are marked by shipwrecks which fell foul to the infamous Cape winter storms, then on to the scenic fishing village of Hout Bay. An optional extra would be to board a boat to view the Cape Fur Seal colony on Duiker Island.
You will also head over the 600m heights of Chapman's Peak Drive, which is without a doubt one of the world's most spectacular mountain passes. You will also have a chance to watch Southern Right Whales frolicking just offshore from June to November.
Explore the rocky coastline and unique Cape Fynbos vegetation which is home to unique birdlife such as African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds amongst others. The opportunity is also there to view small animals such as the Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok, ostrich and Baboon as we enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Climb to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south western most point of Africa - the fabled Cape of Good Hope. (A funicular is an optional extra for those who prefer)
Lunch (for your own account) will be at one of the restaurants of your choice after having been giving suggestions by your guide. We will visit Boulders Beach for an exciting close up encounter with African Penguins. Drive through the historical naval village of Simons town and over yet another spectacular mountain pass; Boyes Drive, where you will take in views of the quaint fishing harbour at Kalk Bay as well as the seaside villages of St James and Muizenberg.
Visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens - with time to browse these magnificent gardens set on the slopes of Table Mountain before returning to the city.
