Full-Day Cape Peninsula and Penguin Colony Tour from Cape Town

2 travelers
    What to Expect
    On this full-day tour, travel around the entire Cape Peninsula, located at the far southwestern portion of the African continent. Cape Point, South Africa and the Cape of Good Hope are situated at the southern end of the peninsula.

    Enjoy the Chapman's Peak Drive, one of the world's most beautiful scenic routes. Cruise past white-sand beaches featuring crystal clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean

    Visit the small fishing village of Hout Bay, which features a beach, fresh seafood, busy markets, and a plethora of restaurants. This suburb is a must-see location on any Cape Town tour. Also, consider a short cruise (at your expense) to see the thousands of seals that inhabit the aptly named Duiker Island (Seal Island).

    Cape Point, of course, is the popular local nature reserve and one of the most famous landmarks in Cape Town. Located at the very tip of the peninsula, with the Indian Ocean on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other, the region is highlighted by rugged cliffs, lush fynbos, and vast open spaces.

    Elsewhere, there’s Simon’s Town, home to the South African Navy, as well as Boulder's Penguin Colony, an inlet featuring a protected colony of African penguins (admission at your expense).

    Finally, walk through the famous Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, widely considered one of the great botanic gardens in the world, brfore return to your hotel (selected hotels only).
