Just a short drive from the inner city, diverse fauna and flora, spectacular views and cultural delights will wow you. This tour combines the best experiences the Cape Peninsula has to offer, all in one action packed itinerary.
Start with a morning pick-up from your accommodation in Cape Town.
Cape Town fades into the distance as you head south-west to Hout Bay, a quaint fishing village best known as the entry point to the Cape fur seal colony of Duiker Island. Enjoy free time to wander independently and revel in an unparalleled cultural experience, with local traders, informal markets, fresh fish and chips and more. Or choose to board a glass-bottomed boat and cruise to Duiker Island to view the lazy Cape Fur seals as they bob about and soak up the sun. [for own account].
