The first stop (weather permitting) is Table Mountain's Lower Cableway Station, for a 5 minute revolving cable car ride to the top. At 1,067 metres above sea level, Table Mountain affords bird's-eye views of both the city and peninsular, as you explore its summit.
Descend and depart the city along the Atlantic seaboard, past the coastal suburbs of Clifton, Camps Bay, Bakoven and Llandudno and on to the fishing village of Hout Bay. Navigate the 114 curves of 600 metre high Chapman's Peak Drive, one of the world's most spectacular passes, past the Cape's longest beach near Noordhoek and the coastal hamlets of Kommetjie and Scarborough - with a chance of seeing southern right whales offshore from Jun-Nov!
After lunch at a popular coastal restaurant, enter the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park where you have a chance to see herds of bontebok and Cape mountain zebra, two of the Park's many endemic species, as well as ostrich and the charismatic Chacma baboons.
Climb (or ride the unique, 'Flying Dutchman' funicular) to Cape Point Lighthouse, to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south-westernmost point of Africa: breath-taking Cape of Good Hope.
Drive on to Boulders Beach for a close-up encounter with a colony of African penguins, before heading home through the naval village of Simonstown and over Boyes Drive, taking in views of the fishing harbour at Kalk Bay and the seaside hamlets of St James and Muizenberg.
