Highlights:
Clifton and Camps Bay

Ostrich farm
Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

Driving along the Atlantic Coastline, we will pass through the affluent Clifton and Camps Bay which is well-known for their spectacular beaches.  Clifton has 4 beaches which has been awarded the Blue Flag Status and is popular with bathers because it is protected from the notorious south-easterly wind.

Hout Bay have great mountains, a long white sandy beach, a busy harbour with daily catches of fresh fish and  is the headquarters of the crayfish fleet.  Option 1 is to take a boat cruise to “Duiker” Island where thousands of Cape Fur seals make their home. Option 2 is a visit to the World of Birds in Hout Bay which is the largest bird park in Africa. Option 3 is to visit Kirstenbosch National Botanic Gardens which is a 36ha landscaped garden and contains about 9000 of SA’s 22000 plant species. 

Follow the coastline to Noordhoek via the cliff-hugging Chapman’s Peak Drive. Prisoners chipped away at the mountain over a period of 7 years to produce this road early in the 20th century. En-route, keep a look-out for the Southern Right whales which visit these waters every year between July and November.

After a brief stop at an Ostrich farm we pay a visit to the Cape of Good Hope (Africa’s most South Western tip) which is the highlight of this tour.  At Cape Point you can take the Funicular to the Lighthouse or a walk between the old and new one.  There is a restaurant, take-out kiosk, curio shop and a letter or a postcard with a special postmark can be mailed from here.

We then drive along False Bay and stop at Boulder’s Beach which is 1 of 2 land colonies where you can view the African Penguins close-up.  We also stop at Jubilee Square in the naval village of Simon’s Town which has a beautiful lookout over the Yacht Club and you will hear all about the story of the well-known sea dog, Able Seaman “Just Nuisance”, a Great Dane.

There are a variety of lunch options which can be discussed before the tour.
