In the crystal-clear water of Boulders Bay, you can view the African Penguins from close by. Only found in the Southern Hemisphere, these cuties are a must see. It is not uncommon to find bathers swimming among the penguins; however, one should be cautious as these are wild animals.

Experience the wonderous sight of ocean meeting with mountainous terrain, animals and birds in their natural habit and the infamous Cape fynbos growing abundantly. These breath-taking views will be cherished in your memories forever.


  1. Scenic drive via Chapmans Peak

Named after John Chapman, the ship’s mate of an English ship’s Captain, this drive between Hout Bay and Noordhoek is awe inspiring and unsurpassed by its natural beauty.


  1. The winelands

With towns such as Stellenbosch, Franshoek, Paarl and Tulbagh to name some, the Cape Winelands is a must see when visiting Cape Town. Boasting with 148+ wine estates and many delectable restaurants, this is a historical part of the Western Cape and one can easily recognise the splendour in the Manors built in bygone eras.

Viewing this natural splendour of flowers, in August yearly, brings one to realize the awesomeness of nature. In a normally dry region this showcase of beauty is breath-taking.
