Cape Peninsula & Boulders Beach Private Day Tour

2. Cape Peninsula & Boulders Beach Private Day Tour

First, make a quick stop in the heart of Cape Town city center to discover the colorful community known as Bo-kaap. Then, head straight for the coastline. Pass by affluent suburbs with some of the best beaches near the city, stopping for photos at Camps Bay. Proceed on towards Hout Bay seated in between gigantic mountains and the Atlantic.  Enjoy an optional scenic 40-minute round-trip boat ride to Seal Island. Resume your tour via the world-famous Chapman's Peak Drive. Marvel at this road engineering feat as you wind over the edge of the mountains; this scenic drive is not for the faint-hearted. Next, arrive at the Cape of Goodhope Nature Reserve just after midday. Discover the rich plant life of the Cape, early human history, maritime history and if you are lucky you might be able to have a mini safari.  Reach the southwesternmost point of the continent - the Cape of Good Hope - and take a photo with the sign. Hiking is recommended but no swimming because of sheer riptides. Carry on to Cape Point and walk for 20 minutes one way up to a historic lighthouse. You could also take a funicular at your own account if you are not in the mood for walking. Feel free to stop for lunch at the world-class seafood restaurant with a sea view or grab a quick bite in the food shop next door. Next, embark on a journey to Simon's Town for a special date with the endangered African penguins at Boulders Beach. Spend about 45 minutes at the penguin colony before you head back to Cape Town along the coastline. Pass through the quaint towns on this historically known Millionaire's Mile. Hear fun facts about the navy and Just Nuisance - the only dog in the world to have been an able seaman. Finally, discover Kalk Bay and Muizenberg Beach, the surfer's corner before returning to the starting point.

What people are saying about Cape Point National Park

Wir haben eine sehr tolle und super organisierte Tour gemacht. Wirklich klasse ! Wenn man noch vor hat Bettys bay auf der Garden route zu besichtigen, lohnt es sich nicht unbedingt am boulders beach Eintritt zu zahlen. Man kann an dem kostenfreien Strand ein paar Pinguine sehen. Auch wenn man den Weg entlang zum “Schwimm-Strand“ geht, sieht man rechts und links Pinguine. Am cape point wird noch eine Wanderung zum cape of good hope angeboten (ca.45 Minuten) feste Schuhe/ Turnschuhe sind auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen. Die Wanderung war sehr schön! Am Fotostopp am Cape of good hope hat man nicht viel Zeit, das ist wirklich nur ein kurzer Stopp. Alles im allen - eine tolle Tour !

Everything went great. The hike to the Cape of Good Hope was amazing. Penguins so cute, pity you can only watch them from the bridge and can’t come closer. The guide was very knowledgable and funny. On our way we saw baboons, ostriches, antelopes. Amazing day, recommend it.

Absolutely amazing trip, our guide ‘King Charles’ and his assistant Jade were like two super stars. The trip itself is very well organized, and something I would highly recommend to all CT visitors!

Super cool experience! Definitely a must if you are in Cape Town. The Tour staff (Rico, Kyle & Julien) were also very friendly

We received many new and informative stories about South Africa and wildlife from the guide.
