These penguins first arrived in 1982 and it is one of the few sites where this vulnerable bird can be observed at close range, wandering freely in a protected natural environment.  

Winding boardwalks make their way through the dunes and vegetation, offering guests an enchanting experience. 

Penguins can be seen year-round with January being the prime time to witness juvenile birds moulting on the beach.

This World Heritage site is a travellers must see with its unspoiled beaches, thriving biodiversity and grandiose cliffs. The “point” served as a landmark for ship travellers and includes monuments to early explorers such as Vasco da Gama and Bartolomeu Dias who named it the “Cape of Storms”, in.1488.

This tour includes a hike to the lighthouse which is situated on the edge of the cliff that has been in operation since 1857, offering visitors a panoramic view of the surrounding coastline. A good option for lunch is the Two Ocean’s restaurant. (for your own account). The park is home to an array of fynbos, over 250 species of birds, buck, baboons, and Cape Mountain zebra.  

There are numerous picnic spots, paths on which one can set off on foot or mountain bike, and tidal pools on almost isolated beaches. After a day filled of adventure and adrenaline, should the itinerary and weather allow, we will wind down on a spectacular sunset drive along Chapman’s Peak. Located on the very edge of the coastline, the drive has simply breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean on the left and the overhanging green mountains on the right.
