Clients are picked up at their Cape Town hotel, and the first stop is Table Mountain, where we spend 45 minutes to an hour. The cable car can be used to reach the top of the mountain and there’s a fee of R280.00 per person. Please note that the cable car does not operate on windy days. Our next stop is Clifton Beach and Camps Bay. Stops will be made along the way to take some pictures.
On the way to Hout Bay, we’ll make a stop at Hout Bay harbour where clients can take an optional boat trip to Duiker Island. There are various crafts and curios for sale at the harbour at negotiable prices. The trip takes about 50 minutes and costs R85.00 p.p. Hout Bay is a nice little fishing village.
When we leave Hout Bay, we go over Chapman’s Peak, which is famous for its panoramic views and beautiful rock formations. At the end of Chapman’s peak, we will reach Noordhoek with its beautiful stretch of white beach and blue ocean, with Lake Michel alongside it. There are lookout points along the way where guests are welcome to take more photos. Between Noordhoek and Cape Point, we will pass misty cliffs and the conservation village of Scarborough.
Very near Cape Point, there is the option to visit an ostrich farm where clients can buy ostrich products, or feed them and take some photos. Less than 3 minutes from the farm is the Cape of Good Hope National Park, where there’s an entry fee of R135,00 pp. The first stop here is the area where the Portuguese navigators first set foot in 1766. After that, we will visit the lighthouse at Cape Point. There are toilet facilities available, as well as a restaurant overlooking the beautiful ocean. There’s also an information centre and curio shops.
When we leave Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, we’ll drive towards Simon’s Town. We will stop at Boulders Beach for a look at the penguin colony, which is a big breeding site of the Jackass penguin. Clients can take photo’s and enjoy an ice cream in a very relaxed setting. Then we’ll drive through Simon’s Town, which is an English-style town established by the British. Our journey will go through False Bay, Fishhoek, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg. From Muizenberg, we’ll head back to town or the hotel. The tour takes about 61/2 hours.
