Day 15 - Cape of Good Hope - South Africa

Up bright and early in the morning we joined the “Baz bus” tour of The Cape of Good Hope, our first stop was Houts bay where we joined a boat to visit Seal Island,  it was a bit choppy but worth it to all those Cape seals on their rocky outpost.

We moved on up to Chapman’s point with Spectacular views over the bay. Next stop was Boulders beach to visit the Cape penguins, there were hundreds of these little fellas on the beach and the boardwalks allowed you get up close and to the new born chicks as well as the adult penguins who marching around the beach with their funny little walk.

We then entered the Cape of Good hope National Park, we unloaded bicycles and rode for about 7k to our lunch spot. We then moved on to the Tip of the Cape, took the funicular up to the light house to see the dramatic views over False harbour. Then it was a 4k walk along the cliff's edge to the  very end of the Cape, along the way we encountered several large Cape baboons doing the same trip and a couple of wild Ostrich. There was just time to take a few photos at the famous sign before returning to Cape Town.

In the evening we had dinner at a lovely local restaurant in Seapoint’s and Rob tried roast Springbok for the first time, its absolutely delicious.
