The Cape Point Private Day Tour
Cape Point falls within the southern section of Table Mountain National Park. The natural vegetation of the area, fynbos, comprises the smallest but richest of the world’s six floral kingdoms. The scenic beauty of Cape Point is not its sole allure; it is also an international icon of great historical interest with many a visitor drawn to the area because of its rich maritime history…
On our drive to do the Cape point tour as a private day tour, choose from one of the following to add to a fuller experience of what the Peninsula has to offer…..
(A) A 40-minute boat cruise which will allow you to see about 9000 Cape Fur Seals all sitting on a small island off the coast of Hout Bay. Breathtaking scenery but not for people who suffer from sea sickness.
(B) If you decide to miss the boat trip, then we have time to visit a working ostrich farm instead. This tour of the farm is a must for all animal lovers!
(C) Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. This tour is for garden and bird lovers. One of the world’s most famous gardens, Kirstenbosch is a showcase of all the Southern African flowers and trees. Beautiful views. Excellent shopping.
The drive to Cape Point also includes a photo stop at a the top of Chapman’s Peak Drive and a visit to the African Penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach, Simon’s Town. Lunch is taken at a suitable restaurant with amazing views, en route.
Our experience has shown that people like to spend longer at Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, so we do not usually include Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in these tours. We recommend that one does the Gardens as part of a city tour, or as a full day tour on it’s own for people who are botanists or birdwatchers.
