After, you will then meander along Chapman's Peak drive. Chapman’s Peak Drive toll road winds its way between Noordhoek and Hout Bay on the Atlantic Coast on the south-western tip of South Africa. Chapman’s Peak Drive is one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. Chapman’s Peak Drive is affectionately known as 'Chappies'.
Enjoy the views of Misty Cliffs as you meander along the beautiful rugged coastline towards Cape Point where you will take a funicular up to the lighthouse and enjoy the magnificent views of the Atlantic Ocean to one side and False Bay to the other side. No trip to Cape Town would be complete without a visit to The Cape of Good Hope. The southern tip of the Cape Peninsula is where you find The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a windswept park of beautiful beaches, dramatic cliffs and Cape Point. You may even get a chance to spot the Chacma Baboon, various antelope and ostriches in the reserve.
Lunch will be at the Two Oceans Restaurant at Cape Point and you could be lulled into thinking you were relaxing on an ocean liner with the sea spread out before you. Since opening in December 1995, the Two Oceans Restaurant, Cape Point’s longstanding eatery, has reliably served the ravished – and often wind-whipped and rosy-cheeked – masses before and after their journey to the pinnacle of one of South Africa’s greatest natural wonders.
You will then take a drive to Boulders Beach in Simons Town to visit the colony of thousands of African Penguins. The Boulders Beach penguins are about as famous as birds can be. They're also ever-more endangered. The birds, who draw crowds of visitors who can't resist their waddling ways, are under threat from loss of habitat, dwindling fish resources, and their human neighbours. After a full day of activities you will then be taken back to your accommodation at around 4.30pm

Our guide picked us up right on time. She took us through the beautiful countryside south to Cape Point. We stopped to admire the beautiful countryside. When she became concerned about labor unrest in the town where we would get the boat to Seal Island, she altered the itinerary to first visit the beautiful Cape of Good Hope and then the penguins. Then we returned to the boat for the seals, but first she bought us a fantastic fish and chips lunch, locally caught fish. Delicious. Our guide was knowledgeable and led us through this fantastic tour. Highly recommended.
To get the most of this tour you have to have the right guide who knows what they are doing - ours was booked through Touring South Africa. We left Cape Town at 8.00 am which got us to the attractions Penguins, and Cape Point before the crowds are unbearable and really prevent any enjoyment. He also took us the rightway round so that we got the maximum views of the ocean scenery. Add to that an absolutely outstanding lunch recommendation The Food Barn and we had a wonderful day.
