Trip to Boulders Beach to see African Penguins

  • Visit the Cliffs of Cape point expand_more
    • Explore the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Encompassing 7750 hectares of rich and varied flora along its 40 km coastline extends from Schuster's Bay in the west to Smitswinkel Bay in the east. Cape Point's headland consists of three promontories: the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Maclear, and Cape Point. More than 200m above the sea, the cliffs of Cape Point provide the perfect lookout spot for whales, prevalent between May and November.
  • Travel to Boulders Beach expand_more
    • Have lunch and then visit Boulders Beach. This beach remains the only place in the world where one can get up close to African Penguins. Penguin viewing is made easier by boardwalks that lead visitors across the beaches as well as to an information center, which is managed by SANParks.
  • Cruise down the Chapman's Peak Drive expand_more
    • Drive along Chapman’s Peak Drive on the Atlantic Coast between Hout Bay and Noordhoek in the Cape Peninsula. This is one of the most spectacular marine drives in the world. Chapman’s Peak Drive is affectionately known as “Chappies” and is a must for anyone who is passionate about the majestic scenery of Cape Town.
      False Bay is the backdrop to most of this day. It’s a world of looming crags and cliffs, mountain passes, lots of beaches (some secluded, others wide and panoramic), and an ocean full of great white sharks visiting southern right whale pods, seals, and fish, including snoek, which is popular to eat.
      On the mountain slopes, sometimes within spitting distance from homes, troops of wily Peninsula baboons roam, while kestrels, hawks, and buzzards fly in the skies above.

Tour Reviews
  • Sverre

    Went on a weeklong motorcycle tour around the Cape Province with Brent as guide last year. Brent is an excellent guide and made sure we had a great first meeting with South Africa.

  • Koemi

    Brent is an excellent guide.   As a tour operator Brent is one of our preferred guides.  He is reliable, friendly and well prepared for various tasks required when touring. He has great knowledge of South Africa and its offerings and is well received and appreciated by our clients.

  • Shelley

    When in Cape Town last year, Brent took my mother and I on a personalised tour around the coast and to a few of the lovely wine farms in the Constantia region. He was knowledgeable and friendly whilst maintaining a professional demeanour at all times.  He offered great advice about other interesting places for us to visit while we were in town and we have since recommended him to a number of friends who were travelling from Australia to Cape Town.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him as a guide to a small or larger group of travellers.  We look forward to our next trip and will definitely be using Brent as a guide again.  Brenda & Shelley

  • Sheila

    It would be easy to be a guide if everything went well. It never does and Brent is great at adapting to the situation.  On that basis he is The Best.  Unfortunately, other things come into play.  I find I know far more about his personal life than I need to.  I would perfer it if he joined the group on at least some of our excursions, I don't think he joined us at any of them.  At Roben Island he stayed in Cape Town and trusted one of the group with all the tickets.

  • Paul

    First time in South Africa was a fantastic experience.

    Riding with a motorcycle was an excellent mode to see the beauties of this huge land.

    A competent and aware guide gave us  interesting knowledge about the country.

    I felt quite comfortable riding under his guidance.

  • Steve
    On my last visit to South Africa, I had Brent as my surf guide and have to say I felt totally at ease under his expert guidance. Being a pretty rubbish surfer I was very apprehensive but Brent was able to provide the tips and reassurance I needed to progress. I would definitely recommend Brent if you are looking for a guide as apart from being a great surfer he is also a very cool dude. Surfs up Steve
  • Marit
    10 people, plus Brent and driver, had several amazing days in Cape Town. Wine tasting, Cape of Good Hope and of course the White Shark diving was just some of the things we managed to do. Brent is the perfect guide with a big knowledge of South Africa and going the extra miles to show us interesting sights. Brent really made our first trip to Cape Town memorable. Thank you Brent :-)
