Daytripping Around the Cape

by | Jan 30, 2011 | Cape Town, Parks/Nature Reserves, Western Cape | 141 comments

Mom and I were in Cape Town for three days — we had lots to see and no car. I’m usually not a fan of group bus tours, but when Mom suggested a tour of the Cape Peninsula with a company called Daytrippers, it seemed like a good plan under the circumstances.

Alexi, our charming Daytrippers guide, fetched us from the guest house at 8:45 a.m. To my relief, our touring vehicle was not a bus, but a cute van towing a bike trailer. (For some reason I did not take any photos of the cute van or the cute tour guide. Apologies.)

We headed south out of Cape Town and marveled at the crystal blue sea and lovely beachfront suburbs.

Clifton, a spectacular Cape Town suburb along the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula.

Our first stop was Hout Bay, a fishing town about 20 kilometers from the city that has become a popular tourist destination. We had the option of taking a boat to a nearby seal colony, but the water was rough due to the high winds and Mom is prone to sea-sickness.  So we opted for coffee and a stroll on the wharf.

The wharf at Hout Bay.

The wharf is lined with curio stalls. I was awed by Mom’s bargaining prowess. “How much for this picture?” Mom asked the vendor. “180 rand,” came the reply. “How about 60?”

Mom walked away with two batik paintings, a small wooden elephant, and a new friend.

We piled into the van and rode along Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the most scenic roads on earth. It winds between the steep mountainside and the ocean, cutting right under the cliffs in some spots.

A stop-off along Chapman’s Peak Drive.

Eventually we crossed the peninsula to the False Bay side, stopping at another cute village called Simon’s Town, home of the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

There are no words to convey how cute these penguins are.

It was incredibly windy and the sand was whipping into our eyes. The penguins were unperturbed.

From there it was on to Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet. (Well, sort of. See below.) There is nothing but ocean between there and Antarctica and it felt that way when we entered the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve — cloudy, windy, and desolate. We saw a few antelope and baboons, which was cool. Then we stopped for a chilly picnic lunch in the courtyard of the visitor center.

The tour was supposed to include hiking and cycling, although it was hard to imagine doing either one in that wind. But as we pulled into the parking area at the Cape of Good Hope, the wind died down and the sun started shining. A few of us even climbed to the overlook above the cape.

Fellow daytrippers Dawn (second from right) and the guys from Brazil (I never got all their names) at the Cape of Good Hope overlook. You can see the wind in the hair of Brazil guy #1. It was just calm enough not to blow us into the ocean.

Cool rocks.

We drove from the Cape of Good Hope to Cape Point. The Cape of Good Hope is the southwestern-most point in Africa, but Cape Point is a kilometer or two away and actually reaches further south than the Cape of Good Hope. However, Cape Point is not the southern-most point in Africa — Cape Agulhas is. It’s all very confusing so I won’t get into it.

Cape Point. Mom and I could’ve ridden the funicular up, but guess what? We walked.

Time for the finale: a 13-kilometer bike ride back to the entrance of the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. I was tired and secretly hoping this part of the tour would be called due to wind. It wasn’t.

Mom is a serious cycler and took off in the front of the pack. (She was the oldest rider by at least two decades.) I hung back at first.

Suddenly I realized I was riding a bicycle at the end of the world. The sun was shining and the wind was at my back. It was the most exhilarating thing I’d ever done. I pedaled faster and eventually passed Mom, the Brazilians, and everyone else. (Okay, everyone except for one guy who I didn’t see until I got to the finish because he was so far ahead. Boo.)

A few kilometers from the gate to the reserve, Alexi was waiting with the cute van. “There’s a huge hill coming up,” he called. “You can stop here if you want.” I waved him off. I know what you’re thinking, and no, I don’t learn.

I saw what Alexi meant when I rounded the bend. The “hill” was a mountain. Suddenly the wind was blowing sideways.

I slowed down and kept my eyes on the beautiful blue water. I thought about how embarrassed I would feel if the cute van had to come rescue me from the side of the road.

After a very long time, I crested the hill and coasted to the gate. Mom and the the Brazilians followed a few minutes later — everyone else had taken Alexi’s hint before the hill.

This photo has nothing to do with the bike ride — it’s another view from the Cape of Good Hope. But I don’t have any pics from the bike ride and was looking for an excuse to use this one.

We arrived in Cape Town around 6:00. Mom and I were the last people left in the van. We asked Alexi to drop us at Miller’s Thumb, a restaurant down the street from our guest house that, according to Joe, serves the best food in town.

I can’t remember what I ate — it was some kind of fish with a delicious sauce that had litchis in it. But I do remember the wine — a South African rosé on special for R85. I took a photo because it was so well-deserved.

Next up: Cape Town odds and ends.

  6. Slowvelder

    Ah – so long since I was at Cape Point – so pretty and your photos are stunning

  7. lisa@notesfromafrica

    Beautiful post! This brings back so many memories for me. I grew up in Cape Town, and every weekend my parents would take us for long drives around the Cape Peninsula.

    Good to see that you and your mother had a nice time together!

  8. Mikalee Byerman

    Stunning photos! I think I have a new destination for my Bucket List…

    🙂

    • 2summers

      Thanks! Cape Town is definitely bucket-worthy.

  9. jaredblakedicroce

    So pretty, so very pretty, i think i might need tape to re-suspend my jaw.
    Also – why is it that everyone likes to throw up gang signs in pictures (E.G. Brazil guy #3 in the photo somewhere about the middle of the blog)?
    Anyway, these were stunning, and i’m insanely jealous
    But thanks for sharing anyhow :-),
    ~J

    • 2summers

      Ha! I hadn’t even noticed the gang sign.

  10. Tracy Z

    so gorgeous! Makes me wish I could visit!!

    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much. I’m shocked!

      • clouded marble

        Don’t be 🙂 It’s well deserved!

    • Slowvelder

      wooo hoo freshly pressed ! Well done! Why did they say its a post about food though?

      • 2summers

        I know, I’ve been wondering the same thing. Maybe because I have a picture of a restaurant at the end? Oh well, I guess I shouldn’t complain 🙂

  12. dearexgirlfriend

    at this point my biggest regret in life is not asking my parents to loan me some cash to go to capetown with my friends last summer for the world cup. your post managed to bring those feelings up for me again, thanks. haha.

    • 2summers

      Hahaha, sorry about that. You should just go now — it will be much cheaper than during WC!

  13. wolke205

    Wow! Amazing pics! It looks so beautiful there! I only was about 16 times in North-Africa, but one day I want to visit Cape Town and so 🙂 Besides all the beauty there, isnt it a bit scary to live there? I heard a lot of criminality.

    Thanks for sharing your experiences & pics with us 🙂 Greets

    • 2summers

      Well, there is a lot of crime in Joburg (Cape Town isn’t half as bad). But it’s like any other place — just be careful/aware of your surroundings and look people in the eye, and that takes you a long way 🙂 There are so many wonderful things about this this country and I guess you just take the good with the bad.

  14. sunshineinlondon

    Ah, I saw your post on Freshly Pressed and just had to come over and say hi! Congratulations!
    I’ve looked at every photo and gone “aahhh” because Cape Town is my home and we’re currently living in London. Beautiful photos – I know every place you describe, and your photos totally do the places justice. And I so know that southeaster – it can knock you sideways!
    Enjoy my home town – please send it my love!
    Sunshine

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much! It’s flattering to know that a local approves of my coverage 🙂

  15. J DUBBS

    Sounds like an amazing trip you just had! I LOVE Cape Town and I can’t wait to go back and see everything again. The weather at Table Mountain has never been cooperative; 3 attempts and 3 fails. So yeah, looking up plane tickets now 🙂

    • 2summers

      Wow! We were even luckier than we realized. Thanks for reading.

  16. madyjo

    Amazing ! thanks for sharing 🙂

      Wow, thanks so much. Music to my ears, and to Mom’s 🙂

  26. Andreas Moser

    Penguins are cute.

  27. acleansurface

    I think the “cool rocks” photo looks like a hand with fingers reaching out to grab something.

    • 2summers

      That’s true! I didn’t even notice. I just saw them on my way down the path and snapped.

  28. Blockader

    You made me feel as if I was there too.

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much. It’s good to know I’m succeeding in my mission.

  29. Evie Garone

    Your photos are wonderful, makes you want to be there…and good goin’ on your Mom’s bargaining skills, nothing makes a purchase as sweet as a good deal done with your own skills!

    • 2summers

      So true. I can only aspire to be like mom. I’m always the one being taken for a ride 🙂

  30. Nora Weston

    Spectacular pics…and an inspiring bio. I can imagine living there, because my daughter visited Cape Town while in the Peace Corps. Her stories are wonderful. She, too, has pics that are so beautiful, they take your breath away. 🙂

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much and thanks for reading!

  31. Carla Jones

    Amazing photos! Wonderful post.

  32. Charlotte Hawkes

    Oohhh It looks soo beautiful! I’d never really thought about visiting before… but this gives me second thoughts…

  33. cellostudio

    Fabulous pictures and a wonderfully engaging account of your Cape Town Daytripper experience! The last time I was at Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve I had an altercation with the baboons, who fancied my sandwich. They won.

  34. juanvillagrana

    What beautiful pictures! The first one in particular makes me long to be there. You’re so lucky!

  35. Ray

    Where else can you watch whales and enjoy super wine without spilling it .Try Hermaus whale watching from the cliff. Enjoyed the photographs brings it all back from last summer.

    • 2summers

      Thanks Kim! Your pics look nice too.

  36. Tiffany

    Awwww man. S.A. is definitely by far the beset place I’ve ever visited in my life and I’ve been to many places. The experience that I’ve gained from visiting this country is one that I would cherish for the rest of my life.

  37. aussiemandas

    Enjoyed your post and pictures. Thanks

  38. Marty Chamberlain

    Great Post, I want to go there! Congrats on being Freshly Pressed too!

  43. Mrs.Idiot

    Thanks for sharing, never even thought of traveling there but now I want too…especially to see those cute penquins!

    • 2summers

      Yep, the penguins are worth it on their own.

  44. reading4me

  45. Lakia Gordon

    I loved the pics.

  46. choosetolaugh

    Thanks for giving Cape Town such a good rep.
    I live here and am very patriotic about it… and you did it great justice.
    Keep enjoying South Africa (or Mzanzi as we call it) and keep blogging up a storm.
    Welcome home. 🙂

    • 2summers

      Thank you so much. It’s great to know that South Africans are enjoying my blog.

  47. Rob

    Beautiful.

  48. Jeff

    Lovely place!

  49. oysterdiaries

    I love the different shades of blue in your first photo! Stirs up the wanderlust in me (:

  50. What's Happening from Katy to Houston?

    These pictures are gorgeous. What a wonderful trip! They remind me of my trip there with my husband and friends about 10 years ago.

  51. kuby2u

    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed. Beautiful photos!! You have an excellent eye! 36 must be some sort of turn-about year. I left NY when I was 36 and the so-called ‘normal life. Enjoy Africa.

    • 2summers

      Thanks! I guess I’ll have to read your blog to see what your new life is 🙂

  52. toemailer

    Great pictures, looks like such a wonderful journey!

  53. mdutiel

    these are some fantastic photos. great travelogue. great post.

  54. Zach

    Hi, thank’s for the mini vacation, that was a fun read. ZW

  55. mark

    Nice pics, how long did you spend in South Africa? What kind of camera were you using? Have you taken photography classes?

    • 2summers

      Hi Mark, I’m actually living in South Africa, in Johannesburg. I’ve been here for about six months. I use two cameras — a Canon 60D with a 10-22 EF-S lens and a Canon Powershot S3. I still need to use the Powershot for long shots because I don’t have a long lens for my 60D yet. But this combo works well for me right now. I’ve never taken photography lessons but my boyfriend is a photojournalist. So I guess you could say I have my own private tutor 🙂

  56. tomorrowslices

    This made me sooooo home-sick for the Cape – my new home in Shanghai is far, far away, but your lovely photos really made me long for my original home.

    • 2summers

      That sounds like a big change. Glad my post brought back a bit of home for you.

  57. markp427

    Really? You were just tired of your life so you packed up and gave yourself a brand new one? That’s almost as impressive as these great photos!

    • 2summers

      Well, it wasn’t quite that simple. It wasn’t so much that I was tired of my life, more like I realized my life was totally wrong and I had to do something about it. But anyway, thanks for the compliment on the photos and thanks for reading!

  58. Stuart

    Thanks for the memories. As an ex-Capetonian, now living in Sydney, I loved reliving the sights I used to see as part of my life there. I look forward to future posts.

    Stuart

    • 2summers

      Thanks Stuart. Sydney is at the top of my list of places to visit. Hope you’re enjoying life there.

  59. Teaching In Nashville

    Your pictures are amazing! Makes me want to visit!…. someday:)

  60. beyondlust

    I have always wanted to go to South Africa, Cape Town in particular. This is an amazing post and it brought the town alive for me. Thanks a lot and all the best!

    • 2summers

      Thank you for your kind words and thanks for reading.

  61. louids

    such beautiful photos!!!

  62. leadinglight

    Your photos are lovely. I’ve always wanted to go to Cape Town. My mom and dad would love it too because they are fully into hiking trail holidays. I have only three continents left to visit now : Europe, Antarctica and Africa!

    Your description of your travels is really nice – feels like we’re there with you.

    • 2summers

      Thanks! I’ve got Australia, South America and Antarctica left to visit. Cape Town is a great place to hike – hope you get to go soon.

  63. Kai

    Your photos are absolutely breathtaking. What a truly beautiful place!

  64. dustbusting

    Am a South African living in Saudi Arabia at the moment. Just returned to the Land of Sand from Cape Town 4 days ago. Even though it’s home and familiar, a visit to Cape Town refreshes the soul just as much as an adventure to a new and unfamiliar country would.

    Thanks for the great pics. Hope South Africa treated you well.

    • 2summers

      Thanks! Hope you’re enjoying the Land of Sand (love it). I will check out your blog when the Freshly Pressed madness dies down 🙂

  65. J. Hinden Flibbet

    Random stranger here. Nice pics!!!

    • 2summers

      Thanks, Random Stranger!

  66. jacintah

    Oh reading your blog post brought back soo many memories. I lived as an exchange student in Fish Hoek (many) years ago and while I was there I had the absolute joy of staying in the Cape of Good Hope Reserve as guest of the Game Warden there. Your photos were fantastic and reminded me of simply how beautiful the Cape is.

    • 2summers

      Wow, that must have been an amazing experience. Thanks for reading!

  67. julietjones

    Gorgeous photos – breathtaking! And I love to see a son tripping out with his Mom too 🙂

      Thanks! I’m a daughter actually, but close enough 🙂

  68. mleiter4

    Love the blog! Especially this post about Cape Town! I too am a journalist down here in Cape Town from the east coast! Headed back to the States on Thursday : (
    check out my blog if you get a chance! http://mleiter4.wordpress.com

  69. herschelian

    Like some of the others who have left comments, I too am a Capetonian, now living abroad (Beijing in my case) and your photos made me SO nostalgic. My sister and I did a bike ride from Fish Hoek to Cape Point when we were teenagers, and we intended to cycle back again but were so knackered my dad had to come and rescue us with the car! Happy days – a long time ago.
    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed, you deserved it.

    • 2summers

      What a nice comment — thanks so much.

    *makes me so jealous, I want to travel!!!!

  75. Giorgio

    I’ve been in CT in October last year and is nice to see again these beatiful pictures and a text thar remindes me of Afrika. Now here in Croatia, Europe we are around 0C and remember those 25 there in October… 🙂

    • 2summers

      Yes, Cape Town is a nice place to be during winter in the northern hemisphere!

  76. annabel

    I just came back from Christmas in Cape Town – your description reminded me of some of the places I went to but forgot to take either camera or notes! Boulders beach and the penquins – amazing. And Cape Point has to be one of the loveliest spots in the world. We shared a beach with a troop of baboons (I was scared!) as well as Impala (they didn’t seem worried). Thanks for the photo reminder. Lovely blog.
    Annabel

    • 2summers

      Thanks for reading, Annabel. Glad you enjoyed the post. Did the baboons bother you at all? We saw them too but only from the car. I saw some people feeding them, which I really could not believe after hearing so many stories about how dangerous they can be.

  77. farahh

    Lovely pictures!!! .. envy

  78. easter's design & illustration

    Wow, excellent, I wish I was there right now as my life here is a bit strenuos and hectic at the moment in Australia, but that is a goood thing in one way and bad in another, but hell I would take the good before the bad! but if I recommended my top ten travel destionations then defenitly I would travel and see Cape Town!

  79. Michelle UluOla

    Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed (twice)! I have dear friends living in Cape Town (and Joburg), and they often sing the praises of the Cape. I passed along the link to your blog, and they appreciated your great pictures, too. I thoroughly enjoyed your blogs and photos, especially as I sit in rural southwest Wisconsin with a blizzard raging outside! For a few minutes, I escaped to a beautiful oasis–thank you!

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much for reading the blog, and for passing it on! I’m glad you’re enjoying it. Stay warm!

  80. Anna

    Wow – gorgeous pictures. I’m going to save your blog so I can come back and read it. I too am an American who left the normal route and decided to travel. I am in the Cape now (actually in Oudtshoorn), heading back through the wine country to Cape Town.

  81. rf401

    Its looking at images like that that make me wish the home town was a bit more inspirational.

    Would certainly make the photo-a-day thing easier.

    Great post, looks like a lovely place.

    I love when I can get up in the morning, pour my cup of coffee, and take a ‘trip’ with your blog. Keep the adventure going and the pictures coming! Love your mother’s ‘can do’ spirit!

    Congrats on being Freshly Pressed. Well deserved.

    • 2summers

      Thanks so much, Tanner. It’s so cool to think of someone who I’ve never met reading my blog over coffee!

  83. swimanog

    I too was in Capetown last September. My partner and I were there as the result of conference. We walked around the city, lunched in the park first set up by original Dutch East India Company. We went south to Kalk Bay, saw whales out in False Bay, and swam in the freezing antarctic water seaside pools, saw the Penguins, ate good food and enjoyed the sun. But we also saw a lot of poverty. We saw frustration among people who were either indigenous or had indigenous roots. We saw secure fences on middle class properties, signs saying this property is guarded by armed security everywhere. On the last day standing on the platform at 11 am in Kalk Bay, one man attacked a black man with a hammer. Both were South Africans. They proceeded to chase each other, wildly hurling track stones at each other. Other travellers (many, foreign travellers like us) had to dive for cover. The implicit idea that the world is a tourist site for western travellers is insulting to the local population, because it comes down to a kind of trickle down tourism-economics, generating money but not for those who need the tourist’s dollar/pound etc most. It helps the established middle class. Perhaps a new kind of ethical tourism could be formed to help those who most need it. Ditto for Australia where in 200 plus years of occupation the Aboriginal people have been reduced in so many places to piteous conditions. Have fun by all means and write blogs about it but let’s also stop and think what the history of these places actually mean, and how our holidays might help those grappling with what is left after the colonialists and their descendants raided (and still raid) the homelands of indigenous peoples.

    • 2summers

      Hi there. Thanks so much for your comment. It’s very true that the side of South Africa you’re describing is rarely seen by Western tourists, especially in Cape Town where it’s very easy, in some areas, to forget you are in Africa at all. I live in Johannesburg and I see the poverty as well as the wealth (in very great extremes) every day. When my mom came to visit S. Africa I wanted to show her all the different aspects of this diverse country. The first place we visited was Soweto, where we spent a full day touring with a local guide: http://2summers.net/2011/01/20/sowetan-for-a-day/. I’ve written several posts about the immense need that I see here in Joburg and in other African countries I visit – here are a few: http://2summers.net/2010/12/30/its-hard-being-a-zimbo/, http://2summers.net/2010/10/22/an-honest-living-part-2/, http://2summers.net/2010/12/02/part-3-of-4-a-swazi-reunion/. At any rate, I completely agree that it’s up to Western travelers (and Western expats) in South Africa to seek out diverse experiences in the countries they visit and to recognize that, like every other place in the world, there are all different types of people here and they all deserve our patronage and respect.

      I was also impressed to see that the hop-on hop-off city tour bus in Cape Town is now offering tours (with local guides who live in the community) of the informal settlement in Hout Bay.

    Love your blog! Glad I found it. Pics are gorgeous, and distracted me from going to the gym for a bit, but off I go.

    • 2summers

      Thanks! I use this blog to avoid the gym every day 🙂

    stunning captures…. 🙂

    Beautiful scenery! And the penguins were cute! 😀 Congrats on being Freshly pressed.

  87. thesecretgirlforever

    wow. those pictures are a.maz.ing. 🙂 cape cod looks like a beautiful place!! congrats on being freshly pressed!! :]

  88. TheEverydayMuser

    I’ve never really ever been a fan of organized tours. I’ve much preferred just going off somewhere by myself. Even getting lost is a big adventure for me, especially when I’m with my friends. We manage to go crazy and have fun at the same time!
    The cool rocks you mentioned really look like a giant’s hands to me!
    I’ve never been to South Africa, in fact, I’ve never been anywhere in SOUTHERN Africa, but hopefully I’ll get there. I have been to Egypt and a few other places in Africa, though.
    Beautiful pictures, and congratulations on being Freshly Pressed!

      Thanks Ashley! I feel the same way, although in this case the organized tour worked well because we didn’t have a car. And it supplied me with a nice title for the blog post 🙂 Thanks for reading.

  89. Fidel Hart

    I didnt see you mention Joe in this blog, so does that mean you took all these wonderful photographs? If so, wow is all I can say. For Joe is an amazing teachers. Regardless of who took them, the photos really tell the beautiful story. You definitely have me considering taking a vacation to a place I never thought much about going to.

    Congratulations on a newly freshly pressed post. This one really captures the essence of your writing and photo stories. I’m glad to be an avid reader.

      Thanks a lot, Fidel. Nope, Joe didn’t come on the trip to Cape Town so it was just me and my cameras. It was a good learning experience for me — I had a few scares with my auto-focus button but it all worked out in the end. Joe did help with the editing and post-production on some of the pics though.

      You should definitely consider a trip to SA — I think you’d love it!
