The most south-western point of the African continent is a great place to see fynbos, the indigenous fauna and flora of the Cape region. You can expect to see some signs of wildlife while you are up there – we know that baboons love this spot! And if you’re in luck, you might spot a zebra or a bontebok.

If you don’t want to take a hike up to the lighthouse, you can enjoy the ride with the Flying Dutchman Funicular at an additional cost, where you will be astonished by the beautiful views.
And last, but not least, you can get up close to the Boulders penguins at Boulders Beach in Simon’s Town. Hosting the largest penguin colony in South Africa, Boulders Beach (often misspelled as Bolders Beach) attracts hundreds of visitors yearly.
