This tour is a great way to see all the beauty that Cape Town has to offer in 1 day, before heading up the east coast to explore the Garden Route.
3 Day Cape Point & Wildlife Safari Tour
Day 1: Ultimate Cape Point Tour
This Ultimate Cape Point Tour has been designed specifically with the youth traveller in mind. Those travellers especially with the desire to see, taste, learn and experience something different from the norm. We try and show all the unique histories, cultures and people that make Cape Town, Cape Town. Along the way we walk the cobbled streets and taste the food of the Bokaap, hike from the fabled Cape of Good Hope to The Cape Point Light House, swim with Penguins at Boulders Beach, enjoy a meal with the locals in Kalk Bay Harbour and end the day off by tasting some of the best wine The Cape has to offer.
We begin the morning with a leisurely stroll along the cobbled streets and brightly coloured houses of the Bokaap while sampling some of the local traditional snacks before heading through the exclusive seaside suburbs of Clifton and Campsbay where we have a short photo stop. We then carry on along Victoria drive, through Houtbay and along the scenic Chapmans Peak Drive eventually arriving at The Cape of Good hope Nature Reserve where we have a 40 minute hike from the most south west tip of Africa, Cape of Good Hope to the Cape Point Light House. We then start driving north to Boulder Beach Penguin colony, where you can view them from the boardwalk and, should you wish, go inside to view them even closer (optional extra)! By this stage you would have built up quite an appetite. We stop for a traditional Cape lunch of fish ‘n chips in the old Kalk Bay harbour where the local fishing community goes back generations. After everyone has had their fill, we stop briefly at the Shark Spotter, entrusted by the local surfers of Muizenberg to look out for Great White Sharks. We then travel through the lush Constantia Valley to the oldest wine farm outside of Europe for a relaxing end of the day wine tasting experience (optional extra) where we also learn about the history of farming in the Cape in beautiful surroundings.
