The Cape Peninsula is a complete contrast to the more cosmopolitan city. With its wild national parks, artistic bohemian seaside villages and working fishing harbors this day will be about embracing the locals and spending as much time out of the vehicle as possible. Your private guide will pick you up and your first stop is for Cape Town’s coolest coffee at Muizenbergs Surfers corner the epicenter of South Africa’s surf culture. From here we head to Kalk Bay to explore the working fishing harbour and meet the colorful and entertaining fishing folk. Browse the bohemian arty shops and perhaps take a short hike through the fairy-like Milkwood forests before taking a horseback ride down the beach!
We head to Simon’s Town to find our own rogue penguins on a secret beach only accessible to the locals. Snorkel and stand-up paddle in rock pools, getting a unique perspective of the penguins (weather permitting).
After visiting Cape Point we’ll venture deeper into the Peninsula to explore deserted wild beaches, secret coves, rock pools and shipwreck hiking trails away from the tourist crowds. This part of the Table Mountain National Park is home to ostrich, baboons, tortoises and mountain zebra. Our return journey along the Atlantic side is a story of amazing views, hidden local cafes and watering holes full of character. We stop en-route for a beer tasting at a local surfer hang-out, wrapping up our day out.
