Depart the hotel and enjoy the scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean en route to Hout Bay. Once a fishing community, now a popular residential area, the harbour still has a charm of days gone by.
The tour continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive – if open, with a 200 meter drop on one side of the coach and a 200 meter rise on the other, as we make our way south, following the Atlantic Ocean until we reach Cape Point. Take the funicular (Funicular for own account +/- R70) to the lighthouse for an even better vantage point.
Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, Sir Francis Drake the Explorer once called it "the fairest Cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the Globe". And rightly so, as it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa.
We pass the naval base of Simonstown as we continue along the Indian Ocean (False Bay), en route to see the African penguin colony which has become well established at Boulders Beach (for own account) before ending the tour back at your hotel.
