Peninsula Tour, Cycling and Penguins!

After breakfast, you'll get a chance to spend a day exploring the beautiful Cape Peninsula on this full-day tour from Cape Town. Travel to Hout Bay Harbor where yo have the option of going on the Seal Island boat cruise or just sit while  enjoying the view with some coffee to kickstart the day. Meander along the sheer drops of Chapman’s Peak Drive as you make your way to the Cape Point Nature Reserve and upon entry be sure to look out for roaming ostriches or mischievous baboons as you drive up to the breathtakingly scenic Cape Point. Then it’s cycling to Cape point and a hike to the tip of Africa. Remember to wear comfortable shoes, as the short hike to the top is not to be missed, offering panoramic views of the peninsula and the vast expanse of the Atlantic Ocean. Having your photo taken at the famed Cape of Good Hope sign, marking the south-westernmost tip of Africa, is a must. Hike on to the lighthouse for an exceptionally marvelous view. Next up, you can get your fix of cuteness as you walk alongside African penguins at Boulders beach and learn about these endangered creatures and the efforts being made to conserve them.

Indigenous forest flanks the river bank, and it’s not until you stop paddling and let the gentle current guide you, that the abundance of birdlife becomes apparent.

Adventure Leader Description

The Adventure Leader's mission is to make sure you have a smooth experience and to help you have the best experience possible. They will offer recommendations for things to do and see, great local eating venues and help the group interact and get to know each others (most of the time this actually happens on its own). While not being guides in the traditional sense you can expect them to have a broad general knowledge of the countries visited. We also use local guides where we think more specific knowledge is needed.


Group Size

Average: 15 pax


Meals

Food is an essential part of traveling. Traveling with Gazef we try as much as we can to help you experience the different kinds of food available in each destination. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this at all times though. We usually leave out some of the meals excluded from the itinerary to give you the flexibility to choose what to eat based on your personal preference. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility. Your Adventure Leader will be able to suggest good restaurants during your trip. Vegetarians will be able to find a range of different foods, although in some areas the choice maybe limited.


Solo Travellers

Our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a mandatory single supplement unless requested. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. 


What to Pack

What you need to bring depends on the trip you have chosen and the countries or regions you are planning to visit. A Packing List will be sent to you as soon as you book the trip. We suggest that you pack as lightly as possible as your are expected to carry your own luggage. Suitcases are not recommended–most travellers carry a backpack or rolling bag of small to medium size (no XXL ones please!). You will also need a day pack/bag to carry water, cameras and other belongings. 


Tipping

Tipping is an expected, though not compulsory, component of your tour program. The gesture serves as an expression of appreciation for exceptional service, and amounts given are up to your discretion.

Tipping is one of the most direct ways that you can have a positive economic impact within the African community. Although it may not be customary for you, it is an important source of income for those in the tourism industry. Giving a tip should be a seen as a formal 'thank you', and the action should in no way be awkward.


ELECTRICITY

The power supply in South Africa is nominally 230VAC, 50hz, Type C plug.
