Tours around the Cape Peninsula

The Cape Peninsula is well known for its beauty and tranquillity. It is the thin finger of land in the south-western most corner of Africa with the city of Cape Town at its head. As you travel south towards Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, the land gets narrower with nothing beyond except Antarctica. In 1578 Sir Francis Drake described it as "The fairest cape in the whole circumference of the globe," and it still is. The flora and fauna is unique to the area and brightly coloured birdlife is prolific. Numerous scenic drives are so spectacular they require an unhurried approach to appreciate their stunning beauty. The Peninsula can be divided into the Atlantic coast on the west with the City of Cape Town and the False Bay coast on the east. While on the west coast the water is rather chilly than the east coast it does have an enviable ocean sunset. To take advantage of this spectacle, it is traditional to take a bottle of Cape sparkling wine to the top of Signal Hill or down to the beach. We will open a few bottles with you after an unforgettable tour around the peninsula.
