The tour starts in Cape Town, picking up passengers at several designated pick-up spots, which you confirm upon booking. What makes the Cape Point & Penguin Day Tour unique is that it is not a hop-on, hop-off tour like on our open-top tours. Instead, you’ll be travelling in a luxury air-conditioned coach with a set itinerary, accompanied by a knowledgeable guide.
Stopping off at Boulders Beach, you’ll have the chance to come within metres of the endangered African penguins in a protected natural environment. Don’t forget to snap a photo of the experience!
The next stop is the spectacular Cape Point Nature Reserve, part of the Cape Floral Kingdom World Heritage Site. Enjoy a short drive through the reserve and look out for wild animals such as antelope, baboons, ostriches and Cape mountain zebras.
At Cape Point, you can take the Flying Dutchman funicular to the viewing point below the lighthouse, while fitness fanatics can take a steep walk up and admire the glorious views across False Bay. To add an extra sensory experience to the trip, there is also an optional hike from Cape Point to the Cape of Good Hope, where the coach will collect you as it continues the tour.
After a full day spent exploring, sit back in your seat, use the free on-board Wi-Fi to share pictures of your adventures, and enjoy the coastal drive back to Cape Town.
