So travel with us to view the treasures of the one and only Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, stroll across the well-kept lawns which are bordered by beds filled with exciting indigenous plants, relax on comfortable benches in the shade of towering trees. Treat yourself to a delicious tea or light breakfast at one of the gardens well-stocked restaurants before boarding your comfortable air-conditioned minibus.
From the gardens, we will take you through leafy suburbs towards the coastal areas of Muizenberg, Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek. Disembark for a stroll along one of the beaches where, in season, you might see seals, dolphins or the whales that visit False Bay between August and October every year. Afterwards we will head to the naval base at Simonstown where you can see the statuette of the only dog- a famous Great Dane ‘Just Nuisance’ enlisted in the Royal Navy.
After that, you will visit a colony of African penguins at the famous Boulder’s Beach, the walkways of which were recently graced by Michelle Obama and her children.
We will then treat you to a spectacular climb in the comfort of our vehicle to the top of the beautiful Chapman’s peak road. There we will stop to photograph Hout Bay far below, the wide expanse of the ocean and the impressive mountain peaks.
Relax in the charming coastal suburb of Hout Bay or take the optional excursion to Duiker Island where you can view a colony of Cape fur seals.
One of the highlights of this versatile day trip is the journey to the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. This reserve will provide you with many photo opportunities; particularly the one next to the unique signpost which proves that you were at Cape point, the southernmost tip of the African continent (might be Cape Agulhas…check facts)
After a fulfilling, satisfying day with high moments of excitement combined with more relaxing moments of leisure, enjoy the scenery as you ride with us to your drop-off point at your hotel.
