Pick up at 08h00 and drive via the N2 towards the towns of Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay. The awesome Sir Lowry’s Pass takes us through one of our major apple growing areas where after the Houwhoek Pass leads us to the “Overberg” where we could spot our National Bird, the Blue Crane. From top of the mountain the beautiful Canola and wheat fields will be visible.
We pass the fishing village of Hawston before we enter Hermanus. An orientation tour is done. We drive to the Waterfront to find the best spot to do “rock whale watching”. Should you prefer whale watching by boat we proceed to the harbour. Time will be allowed for “craft market shopping” Lunchtime (own account) will be given.
After lunchtime we return and take on the beautiful coastal drive. We stop in Betty’s Bay and Stoney Point for a walk to the breeding place of the African Penguin (also called the Jack-Ass Penguin). Clarence Drive follows next as we pass the holiday towns of Pringle Bay and Rooi-Els. Gordon’s Bay, our Naval Base, is next. Time permitting, we wet our feet on the beach and do a short beach walk. Drop off in Cape Town around 17h30/18h00.
