Combine hiking with wildlife watching for an unforgettable day out on the Cape of Good Hope!

Situated just 1.5 hours south of Cape Town in South Africa, Cape Hope combines incredible mountain and ocean scenery with some of Africa’s unique and stunning wildlife.

Among the many highlights of our day out will be seeing the penguins at Boulder Beach as well as heading into the Cape Point Nature Reserve. While we’re here, keep your eyes peeled for ostriches, antelope and other animals.

At the bottom of the point, we’ll have the option to make the hike from the stunningly scenic Cape Point to the Cape of Good Hope. The hike requires a moderate level of physical fitness, but is well worth the effort, offering numerous views out over the ocean.

From July to November is also the Cape’s whale watching season, so if you visit us then, keep your eyes peeled on the ocean for humpback and right whales breaching.

We’ll cap the day off with a scenic drive back into Cape Town, which offers phenomenal views of he Ou Kaapse Weg mountain pass.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this incredible 1-day hiking and nature discovery tour along the Cape of Good Hope in South Africa!

If you like the look of this trip then we think you may also enjoy our half-day hike up to Lion’e Head, also in Cape Town!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
