Day 02 – Full Day Peninsula Tour
This morning after your breakfast, you will be taken on your full day Cape Peninsula Tour, including entry fees. (Lunch will be for your own account).
The Cape Peninsula is an exceptionally scenic tour that tracks the coastal road all the way around the peninsula to the Cape Point, and back via Muizenberg and the Kirstenbosch Gardens. Some of the highlights include the preciptous Chapmans Peak Drive, the Boulders Beach with its African penguins and the many quaint seaside villages with ever present sea views on one side and mountains on the other.
Day 03 – Shark Cage Diving
In the early morning we will collect you from the hotel for a scenic two-hour drive to the quaint fishing village of Gaansbaai. Our activity for the day is a shark cage diving experience to witness the great white shark.
After a safety talk, you will board the boat for the ride to ‘shark alley’. ‘Shark alley’ is a channel of water that runs between Geyser and Dyer Islands. This zone is considered to be one of the best great white shark observation areas in the world. The sharks are present all year but during the winter months (June to September) they are more common as migrating great whites spend a few months hanging out around Dyer Island which is home to a colony of Cape fur seals - a great white’s favourite meal. Sharks as well as marine birdlife and marine mammals like seals, dolphins, penguins and, in-season, southern right whales can also be seen from the deck of the boat. A light lunch and necessary safety equipment are included.
Day 04 – Cape Town to Kruger Park Area
