Cycle Tours to Cape Point (including a visit to the Penguins)
You can also climb onto your bicycle and enjoy a guided Cycle Tour in the Cape Point Nature Reserve. There are several operators (e.g. Awol Tours) who offer small group Tours from Cape Town.
You will be fetched from a central location in Cape Town and be transported with the operator‘s vehicle (with bikes in tow) to the reserve. En route, you can also stop for a quick visit to the African Penguins at Boulder’s Beach. There is even a chance to experience the Penguins during a Kayak trip.
Afterwards you will make your way to the entrance of the Cape Point Nature Reserve. Here you can hop onto your bike, cycle on different routes (25-60km) and enjoy the indigenous flora and fauna. If you leave the main road you might be lucky enough to spot a Cape Mountain Zebra, Ostriches, a few Baboons or Antelopes. An experienced Nature Guide will provide you with interesting information and facts about different plant and animal species.
You could also get off your bike and take a walk from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Point – and enjoy stunning views on the way. Maybe there is also a possibility for a picnic on the beach.
Some cycle tours to the Cape of Good Hope also include a biking trip in the township of “Masiphumelele” which is located near Kommetjie.
Tour duration: approx. 9 hours (including pick-up/transfer back to Cape Town)
