Flanked by the great Atlantic Ocean to the East, and False Bay to the West, the Cape Peninsula is an outstandingly beautiful rocky outcrop. The coastline rises dramatically from the ocean, sheer cliffs pointing towards Table Mountain’s summit.

Culminating at Cape Point, this stretch of coastline has much to offer. From the pristine natural beauty seen in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, to the authentic South African culture experienced in the quaint town of Kalk Bay.

Highlights:

  • White sandy beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay
  • Boulders Beach, ‘the penguin beach’
  • Drive Chapman’s Peak
  • Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve
  • Explore Cape Point


Know before you book:

  • Children must be accompanied by an adult
  • Bring warm clothing. Cape Town weather can change without warning
  • You have the option of full-day trips or half-day trips
  • Hotel pickup available from selected areas

 

cape-town-camps-bay

The tour starts at Camps Bay Beach before moving further down the Atlantic Coast towards Cape Point. Sit back and enjoy the view as you travel along one of the country’s most beautiful roads, sandwiched between Table Mountain and ocean.

The views never end en route to Cape Point. From Table Mountain’s 12 Apostles, over Chapman’s Peak Drive and past Misty Cliffs, you are absolutely spoilt with splendid scenery. Snap a shot of the rocky terrain cascading dramatically into the Atlantic Ocean.

Once you reach Cape Point, you will have the chance to explore the Good Hope Nature Reserve on a Cape of Good Hope tour. A stop at Boulders Beach, made famous by the local penguin colony that calls it home, is essential. Get up close and personal with these rather cheeky critters.

The tour will take you through the small yet culturally rich beach towns of Simon’s Town, Kalk Bay, and Muizenberg. A stop in one of these towns, specifically Kalk Bay, should prove well worth your while. The streets are lined with quaint shops, restaurants and coffee shops.

 

Prices 2019

Times

The half-day tour begins with an early pick up from your hotel and a return just after lunchtime. For the full-day tour, you will return to your hotel in the evening. You can arrange your starting time with the tour guide.

Best time to go

This tour of the Cape is just as wonderful on a good winter’s day as it is any other time. In summer, it can get very hot, so be sure to bring a hat and sunscreen, and your costume if you’d like a dip in the cooling ocean.

The waiting lines for entrance into the National Parks are also usually much longer in the busier summer months. This is why we prefer spring and autumn when the weather is still lovely, but the crowds have gone.

Cape Peninsula tours Cape Town Options

This scenic and fascinating Cape Town Peninsula day tour of the incredible region can be done as either a half-day tour or a full-day tour. Both are great options! It all depends on how much time you have to dedicate to the experience. The options are outlined below:

Cape Peninsula half day tour

This Cape Town Peninsula half-day excursion will take you past the incredible pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, before continuing down the extraordinary road that sways along the scenic Twelve Apostles mountains and famous Chapman’s Peak drive.

Stop to take some photos along the way before reaching the small fisherman’s town of Hout Bay. Take a stroll around the harbor, getting up close and personal with the seals that hang out there.

Next, you’ll drive further along Chapman’s Peak drive, hugging the near-verticle face of the mountain in an incredible feat of engineering to travel through Noordhoek, seeing the famous long beach and spotting some horse riders on the journey to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.

At the pinnacle of the Cape Peninsula, you’ll have time to wander around discovering the flora and fauna as you gaze upon the meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans on the horizon. A vast network of hiking trails show off the many attractions found within this patch of protected land – from ostriches to shipwrecks, zebra, secret beaches and fynbos (an endemic species of flora).

As you head back towards the city, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the African Penguin Colony in Simon’s Town. Finally, after a long half-day of exploring, settle down in the Constantia Valley wine region for some relaxing wine tasting. Debrief over a delectable selection of South African grapes, grown in Africa’s oldest wine region (1685).

What we liked: Great for if you want to see the best of the Cape without a full day to spend.

At the Southernmost edge of the Cape Peninsula, you’ll have time to walk up to the lighthouse and admire the vast views over the region and the meeting point of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

On the return journey, you’ll stop in Simonstown to visit the incredible African Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach, and then back through the sandy shores of Fish Hoek and Muizenberg.

    Well organized, but it's just the red bus tour. Somehow I thought it was booking with a local and smaller tour operator. Tickets for the red bus (hop on hop off) can be booked everywhere. No need to go through GetYourGuide.

    We booked the short tour, as we had evening plans. Unfortunately, we were picked up an hour late (past the specific time for our hotel) and then the tour lasted 6 hours instead of 4, causing us to miss our evening plans.

    Great day! Weather was perfect and we saw so much ~ not a wasted minute. Loved the penguins and the fur seals but then wildlife is my passion. Lunch at the restaurant in the picturesque town (I forget the name) was delicious.

    Half day tour but stopped over a number of towns, met the penguin and hiked cape of food hope. Guide Mark was a good company and briefed me through the history of the towns and the cape. Very good use of my afternoon.

    Beautiful sights, fun and informative experience The sights you will see on this tour are absolutely stunning! With two hours to walk around the cape you can really take in the beautiful scenery as well as enjoy lunch at the restaurant or a quick snack. Later on you can walk along the coast to Cape of Good Hope or take it easy and ride on the bus. Stop at Boulders Beach also allowed enough time to appreciate cuteness of the penguins from all sides. Our guide was very knowledgable and shared many stories about Cape Town, history, and places we were seeing.

    Good tour with great guide We were picked up at the hotel and still picked up two other couples. During the trip the guide talked in a very interesting way about all points of interest. We had sufficient time at all sightseeing spots. it is impossible to keep the announced 4 hours, in total it needed about 6 hours. For us it was fine, and we enjoyed it, but in case that you plan still on other activities you have to consider this.

    Leonard our driver gave us a great day out. The scenery was amazing and he was very good at timing so we avoided the larger bus loads at our stops. We had lunch at a lovely restaurant right by the water and a short walk to see the penguins. On the way back we stopped at a winery. A perfect day.

    We were fortunate to have Ivan as our guide who was prompt and very caring. He is from the area and is a treasure trove of information about the cape, all of our stops, and took us to a wonderful bayside stop for fresh fish and chips for lunch. One of the first stops was at Boulder’s Beach where were able to get close and watch the African penguins interact with each other. The drives around the cape were stunning and thoroughly explained by Ivan. Other highlights were slowing down for the gorillas on the road, stopping to talk with a shark spotter at one of the local beaches, amazing views, and of course the Cape of Good Hope. This tour with Ivan was such an amazing, beautiful, enlightening day. So happy and satisfied with this tour.

    Excellent choice, wonderful time. Excellent choice, wonderful time. Our guide, Ian , from African Moon Adventures had a well planned itinerary, and was personable and informative throughout. The tea and biscuits at one of the stops was a very nice touch. Our only regret was that we did not discover African Moon Adventures earlier in our stay so that we could have booked other trips with them.
