Cape Peninsula & the Cape of Good Hope

We will spend a leisurely day experiencing the rugged beauty of the Peninsula with its spectacular coastline and diverse fauna & flora. We will visit the African Penguin colony at Simon’s Town, before continuing along the False Bay coastline to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. The reserve boasts many recorded bird species, mammals like the Bontebok, Chacma Baboon and Cape Mountain Zebra, as well as unique flora, called fynbos. After visiting Cape Point and the southern tip of the Peninsula, we return to Cape Town via the Atlantic coastline. We will then visit the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens, where staff cultivate approximately 4,000 of South Africa’s indigenous plants, in a setting of forests, mountain streams, pools and rolling lawns. A walk in these beautiful gardens with its dramatic mountain backdrop, is not to be missed.
