We follow the Atlantic coast to the fishing village of Hout Bay. Here you have the option of doing a 1/2 hour scenic boat ride to Duiker Island to experience thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural habitat. Then it’s over Chapman’s Peak to Simon’s Town where we meet up with a colony of the rare African Penguins at Boulders Beach. On arrival at the Cape Of Good Hope Nature Reserve we swop four wheels for two in the form of bicycles to get some fresh air into our lungs and build up an appetite for the picnic lunch. After lunch we hike up to the lighthouse at Cape Point for breath-taking vistas before returning home.
