When you only have a few days to explore Cape Town it makes sense to choose a tour that will show you all the highlights, especially if you’re not going to hire a car. Our Adventure of the Month – Lucky and Lost Tours, does just that and more. As they are a small, family run company they offer tourists something a bit more intimate than the usual group tours – which we LOVE!
So let us get to it and tell you more about this awesome Peninsula experience.
Be prepared for an early start for this one, with pick up being from 8am – 9am. After you munch down your breakfast (from the Randy obviously!) you will pile into the Lucky & lost van and be on your way. Excited to see what Cape Town
The first stop is the historic Bo Kaap where you get to experience the Rainbow Nation at its finest, beautiful colourful houses and local Malay flavours. You get to sample the famous flavours later, during the African style lunch which is collected from here for later.
From here you drive to Boulders Beach to visit some penguin friends in Simon. Now who in the world doesn’t love penguins. So be prepared to take photos at this point, and lots of them!
Lunch as mentioned earlier is full of traditional South African flavours (usually curry and flatbread) and enjoyed at the Cape of Good Hope. Enjoyed on a beautiful lawn with an option for a beach walk or swim in a tidal pool (weather dependent)
After lunch you can choose to hike up to the old lighthouse or take a leisurely coastal stroll past Dias Beach, to The Cape Of Good Hope. To wind down after all that physical activity it is time to taste some of South Africa’s finest wine with a killer view of Noordhoeks Long Beach.
Once you are a little pickled it is time to enjoy the majestic and breathtaking views of Chapmans Peak drive and a view of Hout Bay Harbour (subject to road closures). It is here that you stop to enjoy the view and taste some delicious koeksisters (South African treats) before heading back to Never at Home.
Now believe us when we say the drive back is always a little more lively than the one at the start of the day – it is funny what our local wine can do to people.
We have a travel guru for a reason! Our man, Phil, has been on this awesome adventure himself so can answer any questions you might have about the tour and book it for you too.
