Overview


On our family day in the Peninsula, we start by leaving the city behind, stopping at a scenic location, to enjoy a hot chocolate and to listen to a few of the local shark stories.

Next, we visit the seals at Kalk Bay, exploring this working fishing harbour, perhaps throwing in a fishing line or taking a short stroll through the village. From seals, we move on to their cute neighbours, the penguins. Away from the crowds, we go in search of our own rogue penguins, finding them on a local beach. Dip your feet in the sea water, and possibly try your hand at stand-up paddling to get a different perspective of these little darlings.

All penguined-out we continue on to the Cape Point, where we hunt for the Cape 5 (Ostrich, Baboons, Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and Tortoise) and wander along hiking trails which lead through indigenous fynbos, past hidden coves and rocky beaches. We chat about the shipwrecks on this coastline - keeping an eye out for lost treasure - and either head up the funicular or take a gentle hike to the Cape Point Lighthouse, for an incredible panoramic view over the ocean, and back along the seaboard.

On our return journey, we stop at a local farm village for homemade ice-cream, and either head to the beach or stop at an old fort look-out for magical views.

Please note: During your morning brief your guide may advise changing the route of your tour to allow for us to beat any pending crowds into certain areas during peak seasons, so that we can spend maximum time exploring outside the vehicle.
