On our first day off we decided to do a cape tour. Driving around the coast down to “Kaap de goede hoop” and Cape Point. We took off and drove past Camps Bay, one of the most beautiful beaches of Cape Town along to coast towards Hout bay. Here we hopped on a boat to Duiker Island where a colony of wild seals lives.
After our boat trip we continued our drive and stopped at Boulders Bay, where we observer wild penguins. It was a shame that we didn’t have enough time to swim with the penguins but it was still lovely to see them waddle around.
We drove further down south into the Cape Point nature reserve where our tour guide explained about all the different animals, venomous snakes, pickpocketing baboons, zebras, ostriches and more many more. Inside the nature reserve we got on our bikes and cycled through the park. Our guide had prepared a delicious picnic. After lunch we headed further south to Cape Point, the most south-western point of Africa. Here we climbed up to the old lighthouse where we had an amazing view across the cape and ocean. We walked across the coast for a while until we reached “kaap de goede hoop”. On our way we spotted our first animals of the nature reserve; a snake, some dassies and a group of baboons down the road. At the end our guide was waiting with the van to pick us up. On our way out of the park we saw some zebras and ostrich.
