We depart from the city centre for a full day tour. Bo-Kaap is our first stop with an opportunity to photograph the brightly painted houses of the Cape's Muslim community. Grab a delicious Koesister (sweet dough covered in coconut flakes), enjoy a chat about the history of the inhabitants and surrounds before we head out for the day. Kloofnek Road takes us close to the Cableway. A great stop for photos of the City bowl. Minutes later we descend on the other side of the mountain with stunning ocean and coastline vistas. We travel through this sought-after part of the peninsula, following the beautiful coastline, passing Camps Bay and Llandudno. Curio sellers are often sighted at viewing points should you wish to purchase an item or two or to just breathe in the fresh sea air. The next stop is the coastal fishing town of Hout Bay before we take on Chapman's Peak. This mountain pass hewn out of the sides of the mountain offers one some of the best views anywhere in the world. We will stop for photographs of course! Our next stop is the naval town of Simonstown, home to the Cape's naval base. A short leg stretch to view the statue of "Just Nuisance", a renowned Great Dane naval dog of which many stories have been told and films made. Boulders Beach awaits where viewing sights and wooden walkways offer one close up interactions with one of the very few land based penguin breeding colonies in the world. The Jack-ass Penguin. We then saddle up for the final leg of the trip and that is to the most south-westerly tip of Africa. Cape Point. Some of the best views in the Cape await. Large expanses of pristine beaches, cliffs, endemic Fynbos and wild animals make up this part of the Table Mountain National Park. The Flying Dutchman Funicular is the easier option to the the most sought after views rather than the strenuous climb on foot. Lunch may be enjoyed at the highly regarded restaurant boasting magnificent views. After sufficient time for exploration we make our way back to the City thus concluding an experience of which memories are made.
