Peninsula & Penguins

The Southern Expanse

Situated on the very tip, the peninsula area spans across landscapes such as rugged cliffs, unique fauna and flora, and vast open spaces. There is wildlife in abundance, over 250 species of birdlife, baboons, bucks and the Cape Mountain Zebra to name but a few. Explore the Cape of Good Hope, a world-renowned landmark, and monuments in honour of two of the world’s most famous explorers – Vasco da Gama and Bartolomeu Dias, who discovered Cape Point in 1488. The Penguin Colony at Boulders beach is the only places in the world that you can swim alongside penguins. Boulders Beach has grown rapidly to over 3000 penguins since only two breeding Jackass penguins settled in that arrived from Dyer Island, near Gansbaai. 

Whean heading South towards the Peninsula and the Penguins it makes sense to combine all of the attractions and turn it into a full day of fun and adventure. Head away towards Camps Bay & Clifton, to view the beautiful beaches and cliff-top mansions. Work you way along the coast towards Hout Bay, and perhaps, if time allows, head-off on a Seal Island Boat Trip. Once you have experienced the Peninsula and the Penguins, Simons Town awaits, home to our Navy and many things nautical. Heading back towards Us, pop into Kalk Bay, Muzineberg and Kirstenbosch Gardens.
