Cape Town's South Peninsula is home to a plethora of beauty and charm. As the most south-western tip of the African continent, this area hosts some of the most exquisite landscapes, wildlife and history. There is so much to do here that we recommend setting aside a few days on your trip to Cape Town to explore all the hidden gems.Our Cape Peninsula Cruise, and Cape Peninsula Adventure Tour, are two of our favourite experiences as our guests are always overwhelmed by the peninsula's rapture. As expressed by explorer Sir Francis Drake in 1580, “this cape is the most stately thing and the fairest cape we saw in the whole circumference of the earth”.At Saffa Tours, we want our guests to experience more than just the tourist traps and to-dos. We offer experiential, tailored tours that goes beyond expectation. The South Peninsula is bursting with activities and sites to explore, and we like to do it in the most immersive ways possible.Sometimes it is tough to narrow down your trip, so we thought we would give some insight and share our Top 10 South Peninsula Pursuits with you.
Cape Point Nature Reserve, or Cape of Good Hope, lies at the very end of the peninsula, 60km south of Cape Town. It is not only a historical and symbolic site, but also a pristine natural landscape with indigenous plants and animals, such as ostrich, zebra, and baboon. You can also see South Africa’s largest antelope here, the eland. We like to experience the best of Cape Point by venturing to the hidden beaches for a picnic or hiking through the wilderness. There is so much more to see here than you’ll find on TripAdvisor!
