Full Day Cape Point & Peninsula Tour

Take one of the most scenic journeys in the world in this wonderful, full day private tour. Your guide will collect you from your hotel in the morning and bring you out through the coastal suburbs.

The trip is entirely private, so you can take things at your own pace though typically you'll make stops to see the highlights shown below:


Hout Bay and Chapman Peak Drive

Leaving the suburbs of Cape Town the road winds through Hout Bay and up over Chapmans peak for truly stunning views of the coastline. If we're lucky we may even see Southern Right Whales in the waters off-shore from June-November.


Cape of Good Hope

Explore the rocky coastline and unique Cape Fynbos vegetation which is home to unique bird-life such as African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds amongst others. Climb to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south western most point of Africa - the fabled Cape of Good Hope.


Simon's Town & Boulders Beach

We will visit Boulders Beach for a visit to see African Penguins in their natural habitat. Next drive through the historical naval village of Simonstown and over yet another spectacular mountain pass; Boyes Drive, where you will take in views of the quaint fishing harbour at Kalk Bay as well as the seaside villages of St James and Muizenberg.


The Flagship Lunch

Today you'll enjoy a delicious gourmet lunch in what is one of Cape Town's best kept secrets, the late Chef Bruce Robertson's celebrated restaurant The Flagship.

You will be hosted with a maximum of sixteen guests at the chef's table at The Flagship located in the Winston, a smart Cape Cod-style mansion in Simon's Town. You will be served an inspired five course seafood menu, with local peninsula and seasonal ingredients, expertly paired with a fine selection of award winning wines.


Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens

As we return to the city (time allowing) you have the opportunity to visit these magnificent gardens set on the slopes of Table Mountain before returning to your hotel in the city.


Antarctica pre-departure safety briefing

During a safety briefing, your camp's representatives will be on hand to offer advice and answer questions about any element of the journey. They will be with you every step of the way, from explaining how the clothing systems work to what you can expect once actually in Antarctica. During this briefing, they will also confirm the exact time of departure for the flight according to the latest weather analysis. Weather can mean that schedules change.

Seven days exploring Antarctica from Whichaway Camp

Usually your stay here kicks off with you getting settled into your sleeping pod before an introductory afternoon trek and evening presentation. With only 12 clients on each adventure and professional polar explorers as your guides, the day to day itineraries are tailored to each individual. They can be as relaxed or adventurous as you want. You don’t need to be an athlete to come with us, only in normal physical condition. With gentle treks and picnics overlooking the ice waves, you will have all the time in the world to truly explore this great wilderness. Then, for those searching for more adrenaline, your guides can push you as far as you want to go; from kite-skiing around camp to ice climbing up virgin peaks.
