Sightseeing Safaris & Tours in South Africa

Full Day Cape Town Peninsula Tour

A full day Cape Town Peninsula Tour, exploring the wonders of the entire Cape Peninsula, from the pristine beaches to the iconic Cape Point, where two oceans meet.

The Cape Town Peninsula Tour takes us to Clifton & Camps Bay, some of the most popular beaches in Cape Town, awarded the Blue Flag status. We travel to Hout Bay, a small fishing village, known for its fresh seafood, bustling markets and restaurants. Here you will have the option to take a boat trip to Seal Island, where thousands of seals inhabit a tiny island offshore.

Cape Point Nature reserve is a highlight of the trips, home to Cape Town's most famous landmarks. Situated at the very tip of the peninsula, Cape Point separates the Indian and Atlantic Ocean in South Africa.

Passing through Simons Town, a charming coastal town and seat to the SA Navy, here you will find a thriving harbour, toy & navy museum as well as the popular Boulders Beach, home to a penguin colony.

We pass through Muizenburg, a well-known surf spot on the way to Kirstenbosch Gardens, where we will become enchanted by the rich smells and sounds of the luscious forest. We return you to your hotel after a full day of sightseeing and excitement.

The Peninsula Tour is offered in a Full Day and Half Day variation, ideal for fitting into your Cape Town itinerary.

Hout Bay & Seal Island Boat Trip
The small fishing village of Hout Bay is often jokingly referred to as the ‘Republic of Hout Bay’ by Cape Town locals, and has the sense of being an entirely separate town.

Enjoy the world-renowned and incredible 9Km and 114 curved scenic drive of Chapman's Peak, also known as "Chappies", nestled between Hout Bay and Noordhoek, offering lookout points, picnic spots and unforgettable views. You could be lucky to spot some whales and dolphins along the way!
