Robben Island

Mandela's cell

We have a short ride from your hotel to the infamous V&A waterfront, the departure point for the Robben Island Ferry. The Ferry trip across Table Bay and tour on the Island is an informative and entertaining experience. Ex political prisoners on the Island lead the 45 minute bus ride tours and much can be learnt about the Island’s history and those who lived there.

Included amongst the prisoners who served time there was iconic Nelson Mandela, who, after 18 years there as a prisoner, later became the first democratically elected President of South Africa

Through Hout Bay over Chapman’s peak

Hout bay from Chappies 2On leaving V&A Waterfront we will drive along the scenic Atlantic seaboard through the fishing village of Hout Bay and over picturesque Chapman’s Peak.  This will take us through Noordhoek Valley on route to Cape Point

Cape Point Lighthouse & Boulder Beach Penguins

At Cape Point we enjoy an invigorating walk or gentle ride up with the funicular to the lighthouse at the top. You will enjoy a magnificent view of False Bay to your left, the Hottentots Holland mountains straight ahead and a pristine beach welcoming the waves of the frigid Atlantic waters to your right.

Its truly an awesome sight….and on some days…you better hold onto your hats! The South Easters that caused this area to become known as the Cape of Storms can blow with gale force invigorating power.

Penguins in Boulder Bay

We travel back through the Nature reserve along another beautiful coastal road to visit Boulders Beach where a naturalised colony of African Penguins have set up home.

The waiter like penguins are unphased by the human interest and the cleverly designed walkways and viewpoints afford great picture opportunities without disturbing their natural habitat. A varied day of exploration ends with a gentle drive back to your hotel in the Mother City.
