CAPE OF GOOD HOPE
Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, Simon's Town, African penguins colony at Boulders beach
Cape of Good Hope, which is part of the Cape Point Nature Reserve, is a sharp peninsula located about 65 km south of Cape Town. In addition to the stunning natural scenery, you can see baboons, zebras, ostriches, dassies (rock hyraxes), and several species of antelope here. The reserve is home to 250 species of birds and 1,100 species of plants.
The journey to Cape Point from Cape Town goes through the Green Point neighborhood past the stadium where the 2010 FIFA World Cup was held, then along the promenade in Sea Point, through Bantry Bay and Clifton, where there are beautiful beaches including Camps Bay beach, known for its excellent restaurants and nightlife bars. It then continues through Suikerbossie to Hout Bay. In Hout Bay, we can stop at the harbor for delicious fresh "fish & chips". This is followed by a narrow road connecting the towns of Hout Bay and Noordhoek with a stunning view of the Atlantic, known as Chapman's Peak Drive.
From Noordhoek, we will drive through the coastal resorts of Kommetjie, Misty Cliffs, and Scarborough to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, where the Cape of Good Hope is located.
After a short climb to the original lighthouse, from where there is a beautiful view of Cape Point itself, we will either drive or take a short walk along Diaz Beach to the Cape of Good Hope.
On the way back, we will stop at Boulders Beach, where we will have the opportunity to observe a colony of African penguins. This colony is quite unique, with several thousand of these fascinating birds residing here.
Another place on our route is Simon's Town, a picturesque town situated in False Bay, renowned for the presence of great white sharks.
On the way back to the hotel, we will pass through the picturesque fishing town of Kalk Bay, the surfing center of Muizenberg, and the southern suburbs of Cape Town. We will have a view of the University of Cape Town and the hospital where cardiothoracic surgeon Christiaan Barnard successfully performed the world's first heart transplant in 1967.
