So you want to see it all? In a day? You need the Grand Tour of The Cape Peninsula!
We are unreasonably proud of Table Mountain and the Cape Peninsula and would love to show you the best it has to offer. We can tailor the Grand Tour for you. Here’s an example of what some of our previous guests have enjoyed:
- From your hotel, we head down the west coast of Table Mountain to the best beach in the world – Llandudno Beach. Hot, white sand and clear, cool water.
- We keep going to Hout Bay where you can stroll the quay of the harbour, take a trip to ‘Seal Island’ or go zip lining!
- We then drive further south along Chapmans Peak Drive, soaking up the wide open vistas of the Atlantic Ocean.
- We stop off at Noordhoek Farm Village to stretch our legs before heading to…
- Cape Point Nature Reserve, famed for it’s bio diversity and – of course – being the most south-westerly point of the African Continent. After spending some time scrambling the cliffs and dodging the locals (a friendly troop of baboons!), it’s time to head North.
- We stop off at an Ostrich Farm; ever seen an Ostrich up close before?
- Travelling along the east coast of the peninsula, with views over ‘False Bay’, we come to one of the northern most colonies of penguins in the world at Boulders Beach. A rare sight to see such a thriving number of penguins so far from the Antarctic.
- We round the corner into Simonstown, the spiritual home of the South African Navy, steeped in maritime traditions and folklore. Want to know who ‘Just Nuisance’ was?
- We stop at Kalk Bay: a quaint fishing port to peruse the charming main street filled with antique stores.
- As late afternoon approaches, we head away from the coast to Constantia Valley on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain. Constantia Valley is world famous for its vineyards and the oldest wine estate in South Africa – Groot Constantia. Stroll the grounds and do some wine tasting in the cool of the shade.
- One final stop at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Acclaimed as one of the greatest botanical gardens in the world, this UNESCO World Heritage site is entirely dedicated to South Africa’s indigenous flora, some 7,000 species. There’s a lot more to Kirstenbosch than rolling lawns and guinea fowl.
It’s a big day out and one you won’t forget!
