Cape Point & Winelands Experience
Today depart from the city and pass the famed beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, before heading to Chapman’s Peak Drive. This impressive 15km route cuts into the jagged mountains surrounding Hout Bay harbour, offering unspoiled views of the Atlantic Ocean. Once you arrive at Cape Point Nature Reserve, you’ve entered the famed South-westernmost point of the African continent. It’s here that famous shipwrecks throughout history have left their skeletons.
Choose to hike to the lighthouse at the top, ride the funicular to the peak, or stretch your legs on one of the many walks on offer, all of which treat you to the local fynbos blooms. Next up, experience another natural wonder, the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach. A haven for this endangered species, you get so close to these charming creatures, you can even swim with them!
Heading back takes you along the False Bay coast, where you can visit the charming seaside villages of Simon’s Town and Kalk Bay, perfect for dining on a seafood feast.
After the visit, enjoy wine tastings at two of the oldest wine estates in South Africa, namely Steenberg and Buitenverwachting, which date back to 1685 and previously owned by the Governor of the Cape, Simon van der Stel. There are alternative wine estates in the area and these visits will be tailored to your preferences.
