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.

Peninsula Tour Cape Town
Your peninsula tour starts with a hotel pickup, most tour operators are happy to fetch guests from hotels in and around the Cape Town City Bowl District. From there you embark on an epic journey around the Cape Peninsula.
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 tightly between the 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. 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).
From Cape Point, you make your way back towards town, this time along the other side of the peninsula. A stop at Boulders Beach, made famous by the local penguin colony that call it home, is essential. Get up close and personal with these rather cheeky critters, who seem rather relaxed by the presence of humans.
Post penguin petting, you will continue on your journey back towards Cape Town. This 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.
Finally, after a long 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).
