From here we navigate the 114 curves of 600m high Chapman’s Peak Drive. We enter the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park with its unique Cape fynbos vegetation and home to birds like African black oystercatchers and Cape sugarbirds as well as to very special fauna including Cape mountain zebra, bontebok (both endemic) and the charismatic Cape
Climb (or ride the world’s first environmentally friendly funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay.
We then head along the coast to Boulders Beach for a close-up encounter with the African penguins before lunch.
Continue along the coastline towards the Cape Winelands while enjoying breathtaking views over False Bay. Wine estates visited will vary according to client preferences. Nearby Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second-oldest town, provides a glimpse of classic 17th century Cape style, with a chance to browse quaint Dorp Street and the many museums, galleries and shops.
