takes to reach the summit and once there you can marvel at the views, have a bite to eat in the restaurant or do a bit of shopping at the extensive curio shop. The cableway only operates when weather permits.
- Short Diamond factory tour—allows you to learn more about the diamond business in South Africa.

Day 3

Private full-day Cape Peninsula

We’ll head out after breakfast today for a full day exploring the stunning Cape Peninsula. Your day is one packed with isolated beaches, unspoiled landscapes, quaint villages, and the unique wildlife that makes the region so popular.

Our day starts with the idyllic beaches of Clifton & Camps Bay before we head over to the bustling fishing town of Hout Bay. While here, you’ll take a boat out to Seal Island to spend a little time observing the playful mammals that lend the island their name.

A visit to Cape Point to see firsthand where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet is our next stop en route to the highlight of the day: the penguin colony of Simon’s Town! These adorable birds call the nearby Boulders Beach home, and you’ll get a chance to see them up close.

We’ll return to Cape Town in time for dinner.
