Our journey to Cape Point takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard coastal road. We pass the pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with their soft white sand and azure blue water.
The formidable 12 Apostles Peaks rise above the road on one side, while sheer cliffs and incredible rock formations drop into the icy Atlantic Ocean on the other side. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape Peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity.
Our tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
This area is home to magnificent ‘fynbos’, many different species of buck and birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, and mischievous baboons. These creatures entertain guests enjoying lunch at the restaurant which has splendid views of False Bay.
Take the funicular or walk to the lighthouse to see the meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at the Cape Point.
We visit Boulders Beach to see the Jackass Penguins before arriving at the naval base of Simon's Town.
With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers, and offer fitting end to a day filled with all the Cape has to offer.
I wanted to thank you and especially my guide, Estlee, for a fantastic trip to Boulder's Beach and the cape last week. She really knows her stuff and it was wonderful to have her drive me around to see all the great things that the Cape Town area has to offer.
My only wish is that I had more time to see everything but I guess this just means that I have to come back, right?
