South Africa’s favourite city, Cape Town sits on the edge of an epic, mountainous peninsula that curls out between two mighty oceans. The peninsula is home to a unique beauty thanks to its breath-taking terrain and spectacular local flora and fauna. From Cape Town’s dynamic and friendly people to cliffs and bays of Cape Point this area calls out to be toured and explored.
A sandstone mountain range stretches like a spine across the Cape Peninsula, from the iconic Table Mountain through the towering Twelve Apostles and down, southwards, to Cape Point. A journey to the edge of Africa will take you through beautiful white sand beaches and scenic fishing villages. A particular treat is the world famous Chapman’s Peak Drive, an exquisitely scenic road that closely hugs the side of a mountain. As you wind around the road you can enjoy sweeping views of the Ocean and Hout Bay.
On the tip of the Peninsula is the Cape Point Nature Reserve, which abounds in dazzling flora and fauna. Here is an incredible display of diversity and the site of the world’s smallest floral kingdom. In the Nature reserve you will find the Cape Point Lighthouse; standing here, with the ocean stretching out, you will truly feel on the edge of Africa. The glorious sights of the Cape Peninsula are just waiting discovered.
