Discover the splendour of the majestic Cape Peninsula...at your own pace !
We’ve designed this tour with four things in mind: i) trying not to do too much in one day, ii) taking in as much of the majestic landscapes of the wine country as possible iii) seeing lots of wildlife and iv) having lots of really nice food v) avoiding the crowds! You should be able to complete this tour in a day (although it’s a fairly long and quite rushed one): the optional extensions will take longer, so only take these on if you have the time or one of our suggestions doesn’t appeal to you. There’s a really great site for the whole area called www.capepointroute.co.za which will give you more details than we can provide here.
