Drive past the pristine beaches of Camps Bay, Clifton and Llandudno – currently the hottest real estate in the world – to Hout Bay, a functioning harbour and heart of the local crayfish industry .
After a stop for lunch (own account), it’s on to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, where you are able to ride the Funicular (own account) to the scenic viewing point where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet.
The spectacular sea and mountain views are reason enough to make the 66km/41miles trip from Cape Town. Amid the rocky landscape – home to mountain zebra, eland, baboons and ostriches – blooms magnificent Cape flora.
Clifton Beaches Hout Bay & Mariners’ Wharf Boat ride to view seals (optional) Chapman’s Peak Drive/Ou Kaapse Weg Cape Point Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve Penguin colony at the Boulders Historic Simon’s Town Groot Constantia Wine Estate OR Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
Approximately 1-hour stop-over will allow you to take an optional boat ride to view seals on Duiker Island. Lots to do ashore if you choose not to take the boat ride.
Groot Constantia / Kirstenbosch option:
Due to time constraints on this day tour of Cape Town and its surrounds, both venues cannot be visited on the same day. Tourists generally consider Kirstenbosch as their first choice.
