Begin your tour with hotel pickup from your lodging in Cape Town between 7:45 and 8:30 a.m. Drive along the Atlantic Seaboard to Hout Bay harbour, taking in the view of the Twelve Apostles Mountains in the background and learning about the culture of Cape Peninsula as you go.
Upon arrival at Hout Bay, take an optional boat cruise to the Cape Fur seal colony on Duiker Island (own expense), or spend free time browsing the local shops at the harbour. Return to the car and snack on cookies and juice while admiring the views along Chapman’s Peak Drive (subject to road conditions).
Then, continue to Boulders Beach in Simons Town to visit a colony of penguins living on state-protected land, before mounting a bike for a downhill cycle through the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Look out for local wildlife that roams freely through the park.
Stop for a picnic lunch and a leisurely stroll to the southwestern-most point of Africa before returning to your hotel.
