Cape Town, Full-Day, Fairest Cape – Peninsula Cycle
Savor the very best of the Cape peninsula on this unique guided cycle excursion. From the top of Signal Hill, we take in Lion’s Head and the iconic Table Mountain as well as a bird’s eye view of the Atlantic Ocean. We meander alongside the sea, through Camps Bay, Hout Bay Harbor and on to Chapman’s Peak for a superb lunch spread. In the afternoon, we make our way to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, enjoying a guided cycle to Cape Point and short hike to the historic lighthouse, before making our way back along the eastern side of the peninsula and visiting the African Penguin colony at Boulders Beach!
We start cycling just north of Lion’s Head, a towering Precambrian rock outcrop, aptly named Signal Hill, with superb views of the City, Robben Island and the azure Atlantic Ocean. Lion’s Head peaks at 669 metres (2,195 ft) above sea level.
Descend from Signal Hill rounding the foot of Lion’s Head, Table Mountain greets you in all her glory. From Kloofnek, taking in spectacular views of the city we our way down the mountainside to the seaside suburbs of Clifton and Camps Bay, a haven for bronzed beachgoers. Onwards along the stunning Atlantic Seaboard, through the village of Bakoven, nestled at the foot of the famous Twelve Apostles Peaks. Our first break at the pristine Oudekraal Nature Reserve.
Next to the trailhead for our Chapman’s Peak ride. Chapman’s Peak Drive hugs the near-vertical face of the mountain from Hout Bay to Noordhoek. This is but one highlight of the day’s cycling, and the panoramic views will stay with you for a long while to come.
Next stop, the famous Cape Point Nature Park. We enjoy a guided hike to the top lighthouse for a change of pace. And a phenomenal 1-hour stroll which showcases the unsurpassed beauty of this hidden gem at the southern tip of Africa. The nature reserve is home to baboons, zebra, eland, bontebok, ostrich and an abundance of bird and plant species, many of them endemic to the Cape Floral Kingdom. We break at the beautiful Dias Beach before continuing for the final leg of the cycle that will see us into Simons Town, South Africa’s current and historic naval base.

Note: Prices are quoted in United States Dollars (USD) per person and are subject to change without notice. Even so we are based in South Africa, the recent swings in the local currency necessitated the conversion to a USD based rate system. This means we don’t change our rates with the swings and can absorb a 2 to 3 point swing up or down, without having to update rates constantly. It ensures a stable rate and consistent quality and product availability throughout our product portfolio.
