Penguins Cape Peninsula

Full Day Cape Peninsula Tour

This Peninsula Tour has been designed specifically with the youth traveller in mind, especially those travellers with the desire to see, taste, learn and experience something different from the norm.

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 drive north to the Boulder Beach Penguin colony, where on a nice day you can actually swim with these sea birds! By this stage you would have built up quite an appetite and so 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 this we stop briefly at the Shark Spotter, entrusted by the local surfers of Muizenberg to look out for Great White Sharks.

We then head to one of the real highlights of the day, a tour of a community centre, primary school and small township. Here we learn about the day to day struggles, hopes and dreams that so many people in South Africa share. After this eye opening experience we travel through the lush Constantia Valley to the oldest wine farm outside of Europe for a relaxing end of the day wine tasting experience where we also learn about the history of farming in the Cape in beautiful surroundings.
