Cape Town Urban Safari

Summary

A jam-packed urban safari in a vintage VW Kombi bus with local Capetonian guides.


Tour Cape Peninsula in our original VW Kombi called “Veronica”

Your local guide will show you the rich tapestry that is Cape Town including wonderful views, historical sites, cultural influences and of course the vibrant street art. You will discover the hidden secrets of Cape Town that only a local tour guide could know. Amongst the many highlights, this tour will include a visit to a superb Microbrewery known for its fine beers. Here we indulge in a beer and food pairing lunch before winding on along the coastal road enjoying the beautiful scenery and the opportunity to see a pod of dolphins or carving whales on route – depending on the season of course.

Chapman’s Peak Drive

Continuing our journey south along the cold Atlantic seaboard, we reach the famous Chapman’s Peak Drive. This astounding road was originally carved into the mountain cliffs by Italian prisoners of war between 1915 and 1922. It has subsequently undergone several engineering modifications following its closure in 1990. This is a well known and popular route in our Tour Cape Peninsula Urban Safari as it offers several iconic photo opportunities presented by the picturesque views of Hout Bay, the Sentinel Mountain and the miles and miles of shimmering white sands of Noordhoek beach as it stretches off into the distance towards Kommetjie.

Noordhoek Wine Farm and Back to Clifton

Continuing on we next stop at one of Cape Town’s most charming wine farms for a wine tasting. With magnificent views over the local seaside village of Noordhoek and the distant Kommetjie lighthouse. To end the tour we amble back towards Cape Town stopping off for sundowners at a secret location for overlooking the popular, internationally recognised, Clifton Beaches. All in all a relaxed and personalised way to experience the wonders of Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula.
