Travel in a southerly direction towards False Bay and Muizenberg, meandering your way through the picturesque and somewhat eclectic seaside villages of St James and Kalk Bay. The area is well known for its Coffee shops, Bohemiam style boutiques, Bric a Brac, art galleries and antique stores. Your journey continues through historical Simon’s town, home to SA’s naval headquarters and steeped in Dutch and British history. We will visit Boulders African Penguin Colony, home to a unique and endangered land-based colony of African Penguins. This colony is one of only a few in the world, and the site has become famous and a popular international tourist destination. From here, you continue in a southerly direction, along the beautiful edge of False Bay, towards the Cape of Good Hope Nature reserve. Here, you will enjoy breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean and will have ample time to visit the “old” lighthouse, which was built in 1859. The lighthouse is accessible by foot or one can catch the Flying Dutchman funicular to the top.
Lunch stop – Your journey continues in a northerly direction, towards Chapmans Peak drive, considered to be one of the most scenic drives in the world, with breath-taking views of the icy Atlantic Ocean, riddled with shipwrecks and tales gone by. (Please note that this section of your journey is weather dependent, so cannot be guaranteed) Continue your journey along the Western side of the Cape Peninsula mountain range, through Hout Bay, Llandudno and Camps Bay, under the shadow of the looming “Twelve Apostles”. Time dependent, your guide could pause for a photo stop of the magnificent views.
