    • Pick up at 8 am from Cape Town.

    • Drive along the most scenic route in the world, crossing the beaches of Glitzy Camps Bay, into Llandudno, Hout Bay, along with the famous Chapmans Peak, passing the Kommetjie lighthouse and arriving at the Cape Point Nature Reserve. This is a World Heritage Site and the area with the highest plant biodiversity in the world, called fynbos. 

    • Walk a small trail amidst the fynbos, alongside the cliffs over the Indian Ocean. Find some ostrich, baboons, antelope, tortoises and other animals in reserve, see some plants that the indigenous hunter-gatherers would have used only 200 years ago.

    • Continue towards the point itself, walk down to the beach with its famous shipwrecks, and meander along the path to the old lighthouse on the sea cliff. Cape Point is also known as The Cape of Storms - its huge south Atlantic swells come up from near Antarctica, bringing massive waves and gale-force winds.

    • Stop in Simonstown for lunch; it is a maritime naval town and home to the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

    • Short stroll to Boulders penguin colony and for those who are brave, a swim in the sea with them.

    • Return via False Bay, passing the picturesque fishing suburbs of Kalk Bay and Muizenberg, in the late afternoon.
