Drive along the very scenic seaboard of the Cape Peninsula, passing some of the most famous beaches in South Africa. The Twelve Apostles can also be viewed on this route. We will stop at scenic points to allow you to take your favourite photos.

At Hout Bay we will depart on an excursion to Duiker Island by boat to view the Cape Fur Seals.

There are 35 species of seals in the world. Duiker Island is a Cape Fur Seal and bird sanctuary, home to thousands of seals and many birds such as the Cape Cormorant, the Bank Cormorants, Black Back Gulls, Kelp Gulls and Hartlaub Gulls.

From Hout Bay, we pass Leopard Rock, the bronze Leopard Statue at the foot of the famous and scenic Chapmans Peak Pass. The sculpture is a memorial to the many wild animals that once roamed the mountains of the peninsula. The last leopard seen in Hout Bay was in 1937 on Little Lion’s Head.

The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve is situated within the Table Mountain National Park. This forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a World Heritage Site. It includes the majestic Table Mountain chain, which stretches from Signal Hill to Cape Point, and the coastlines of the Cape Peninsula. This narrow stretch of land, dotted with beautiful valleys, bays and beaches, contains a mix of extraordinarily diverse and unique fauna and flora. We do a drive by at a Ostrich Farm before entering The Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.

The Cape of Storms, the original name accorded to the present Cape of Good Hope, was not given lightly to one of the most notoriously dangerous coastlines in the world. Evidence of numerous shipwrecks litters the Cape coast from west to east, some of which may still be seen today around Cape Point. This area is also known for the ghost ship “The Flying Dutchman” which people claim to frequent the stormy seas.

At Buffels Bay we will enjoy a packed lunch with wine, fruit juices and coffee. Buffels Bay, or Buffalo Bay, is said to have earned its name from a ship that was wrecked during the 1700s. Legend has it that a ship transporting buffalo apparently hit the rocky shoreline and broke apart, freeing the animals, which swam across the bay to freedom.

We will drive past an Ostrich Farm on our way to the Boulders Penguin Coligny in Simon’s Town. There will be ample stops on the way to take photos of the scenic area and coastline.

From Simon’s Town we will drive through the scenic coastal towns of Fish Hoek, Kalk Bay and surfers paradise at Muizenberg.

On our way back we will drive through the Sun Valley area, joining our original route at Noord Hoek. The sun will now be in our favour to take “WOW” photos back to Hout Bay and Cape Town along the Western Seaboard of the Cape Peninsula.

The sides of the OSV can be closed if the weather turn bad. This is an excellent way to see the Peninsula and to take pictures whenever you want. We are able to stop at look out points and other scenic places that are not normally possible for other forms of transport.
