Guests are met at any location of their choice in Cape Town to start the Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve Day Tour. The spectacular Chapman's Peak Drive, cut into the 650m high Chapman's Peak, leads the tour through the town of Noordhoek to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.
This 47 000 hectare area is situated some 50km northwest of Johannesburg. The Cradle of Humankind is a World Heritage Site that became prominent in 1947 when Dr. Robert Broom excavated the now famous 'Mrs. Ples', one of the most important paleontological discoveries ever made.
After a drive of about 50 minutes, the tour arrives at Franschhoek, located in one of the most picturesque valleys of the Cape. The town of Franschhoek owes its existence to the first French settlers who worked the valley in the 18th century.
