What to expect: We will drive through the Peninsula, about 167km and stop along the route to see Hout Bay harbour from Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the most beautiful roads in the world. From the scenic views and reclusive beaches to historic landmarks, we will reach the place where the Benguela and Agulhas currents meet: The Cape of Good Hope National Park. We will walk in the National Park and enjoy the beautiful landscape with its unique fauna and flora.
In the afternoon we will drive though small fishing villages and visit Boulders beach where the South African penguins’ colony is.
It takes its name from the granite boulders which surround the beach and they are home to the African Penguins.
The Boulders Penguin Colony was established in 1983 and is one of the last refuge to the endangered African penguin (Spheniscus demersus)
Fauna: The reserve is home to large animals such as elands (the largest antelopes), baboons, zebras, rock hyrax and other antelopes. There are also lizards, tortoises, snakes, water mangoose, striped mice and the Cape clawless otter.
Flora: 1100 species of indigenous plants which are part of the coastal and inland fynbos.
The Southern Right Whale can be seen between June and November but seals and dolphins are common all year around.
