Cape Point Nature Trip
The Day can be described as a "Cape Town Safari" as it aims to give guests an appreciation for the Biodiversity of the Cape Floral Kingdom. A full day will be spent in Cape Point, before ending off at the Boulders Beach Penguin colony.
Hike: The day will start with a hike in Cape Point to appreciate some of the beautiful scenery often overlooked by most visitors. The Hike will focus on the Biodiversity on offer with a focus on the fynbos and birds. The hike will take place in an area frequented by Eland and Bontebok so we hope to see them too. Cape Point has a rich history and some of that will also be discussed along the way.
Cape of Good Hope - After the hike we will visit to the Cape Point Lighthouses, The most South-Westerly point on the African Continent - Cape of Good Hope. Lunch will be taken at the Two Oceans Restaurant which offers beautiful views and delicious food. After lunch we will drive to some of the Historic Monuments, located along beautiful beaches. We will also drive around to locate other Wildlife. Cape Point can not offer the typical South African Safari experience, but there are a number of large Mammals occurring here that are adapted to the Fynbos environment so the day is aimed at spotting some of them.
Simon's Town - The day will end off at the Boulders Beach African Penguin colony to view these Endangered Birds in their most scenic habitat.
Price: R 1 200 per person (Includes entry fee to Cape of Good Hope and Boulders)
