Explore the fascinating sites of southwest Africa during this full-day orientation tour along the Cape Peninsula to Cape Point.

Depart the pier for the scenic drive to Cape Point, located on the southwestern tip of Africa. En route, you will pass through the suburbs of Green Point and Sea Point to Camps Bay, nestled in the foreground of the impressive peaks of the Twelve Apostles. You will then continue along the Atlantic seaboard towards Hout Bay, a small fishing village.

From Hout Bay, you will pass by Chapman's Peak, and proceed through the seaside residential suburb of Scarborough en-route to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. It is here that the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, along with their diverse ecosystems, are thought to converge. This expansive nature reserve occupies 19,150 acres of indigenous flora and fauna. Cape Point and its dramatic sea cliffs, among South Africa's highest, are main attractions of the reserve. Upon arrival, you will ride the funicular railway to the top of Cape Point, and take in breathtaking views and photo opportunities.

After lunch at a nearby restaurant, a visit will be made to the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach, followed by a drive through the naval base of Simonstown to Fish Hoek. From here, you will continue on to the colorful fishing harbor of Kalk Bay before turning on to Boyes Drive, which offers magnificent views of Muizenberg and False Bay.

Your drive will conclude with a visit to the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, which is spread out over 1,384 acres on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain and contains 4,580 species of indigenous plants. Following a leisurely stroll amidst these lovely surroundings, you will re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier. En route, you will pass by the University of Cape Town, Rhodes Memorial, Mostert's Mill and famous Groote Schuur Hospital.

Please note: This tour includes a substantial amount of uphill and downhill walking, along with some steps. The road along Chapman's Peak Drive is extremely steep, narrow and winding. This tour is not recommended for guests with a fear of heights, guests with limited mobility or guests who utilize a wheelchair.
