What to Expect
The trip will start at the depot in Cape Town, from there we'll travel in the False Bay direction. This will take us through charming seaside suburbs like Muizenburg, Fishhoek and Simon's Town.

Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb of Cape Town. It is situated where the shore of the Cape Peninsula curves round to the east on the False Bay coast. It is considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and was once the home of Cecil John Rhodes, one time governor of the Cape and founder of the renowned De Beers diamond empire - his cottage is now a museum.

Simons Town on the other hand was established in 1743 as a port. It is located on the shores of False Bay, on the eastern side of the Cape Peninsula. For more than two centuries it has been an important naval base and harbour (first for the Royal Navy and now the South African Navy). The town is named after Simon van der Stel, an early governor of the Cape Colony.

Simons Town is also known for its beach, The Boulders, so called due to the massive rocks to found there. The beach penguin colony is one of only two mainland breeding colonies of the jackass penguin. 

Before reaching the actual point, we'll be making our way through the Cape Point Nature Reserve, which was first named "Cape of Storms". Here we'll have a light snack before a brisk walk to the top of the 678 metre high peak. The less sporty can catch a ride on Africa's only funicular instead.

We'll be travelling back via Scarborough, Kommetjie and Noordhoek, along the world famous Chapman's Peak Drive. Here you'll be afforded breathtaking sea-views and plenty of photo opportunities.

We should be back in Cape Town by late afternoon.

Hi Duane, thank you for your feedback! I am glad you had a great day, shame the day has only 24 hours right? So much to see and do, one day just not enough = ) See you next time.
