Private Tour: Cape of Good Hope Tour from Cape Town

Escape from Cape Town for the day to explore the peninsula's vast natural wonders, including Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope and Boulders Beach. Choose between two spectacular drives on your private tour, which stops first at Boulders Beach where you'll meet hundreds of resident African penguins. Then continue to the Cape of Good Hope, a stunning rocky outcrop that's a significant point for sailors. Lastly visit Cape Point, Africa's most south-westerly tip. Keep an eye out for playful baboons and enjoy incredible views from the Cape's two lighthouses.

What to Expect
After being picked up at your hotel around 9am, hop in the comfortable car to begin this private 8-hour tour. Get a great view of Table Bay with Robben Island in the distance and make a quick stop at Maiden's Cove to get a glance of the Twelve Apostles and the picture-worthy view of Camps Bay. 

At Hout Bay, consider the optional excursion of taking the ferry to Duiker Island to get an up-close and personal view of hundreds of Cape Fur seals. If not, continue on to Chapman's Peak Drive. There is also an alternate route via the Constantia Forest with a stop on top of Boye`s Drive with stunning views of the holiday village of Muizenberg down below. This panoramic tour continues along the False Bay coast to the lovely town of Simonstown where you visit the rare African penguins at Boulders Beach. Other optional visits could be Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens or Groot Constantia Manor House.

Cape of Good Hope is the next stop. Take a 45-minute scenic walk from Cape of Good Hope to Cape Point. Or consider the optional funicular ride to the lighthouses. The return journey takes you to Scarborough with mind blowing waves at Misty Cliffs, a haven for kite surfers. The drive back to the hotel is via the University of Cape Town and Grootte Schuur hospital. The latter known is as the hospital where the first heart transplant was done in 1967 by Christiaan Barnard.
