Chapman's Peak Drive

Chapmans Peak Drive
Chapman's Peak Drive is one of the most iconic drives anywhere in Africa, this 9km is all about scenery with the Atlantic Ocean below, Hout Bay in the distance and Table Mountain National Park above. It is not uncommon to see whales and dolphins from the vantage points as well as some amazing sunsets.

Boulders Beach Penguins

Boulders Beach Penguins
Boulders Beach near the coast town of Simon's Town is one of the very few spots on the planet were one can get up close and personal with Penguins. So close in fact that one does not need a good camera with a big lens, we have in the past used just a simple cell phone camera to photo these little beasties!
