We take you along an unforgettable journey to the mythical meeting place of the two great oceans at the edge of the African continent. Breathtaking scenic beauty unfolds as you travel along the spectacular coastline of the Cape Peninsula through charming historical towns.
And that meeting place is the pinnacle of Cape Point found within the Cape Point Nature Reserve, perhaps the most scenically spectacular park in South Africa. Climb to the edge of Africa for one of the Cape's Peninsula's defining views. For it was here that Bartholomeu Diaz, the Portuguese navigator, first rounded the Cape in 1488, searching for a trade route to India and the East. The large stone cross in the reserve commemorates his passage.
Driving through the indigenous fynbos (fine bush) one may view a host of endangered animals, mammals and plant life. For the botanist in us all there are a staggering 1016 species of plants to be found in this region. One such is the stately King Protea, the national flower of South Africa and found in full bloom around the time of your visit.
We stop for lunch (own account) after visiting the penguin colony at Boulders Beach and make our way back enjoying sweeping views of the valley and False Bay coastline.
