• HIKING CAPE POINT
At the tip of the Cape Peninsula you will find Cape Point within the Table Mountain National Park. The expansive Table Mountain National Park stretches from Signal Hill and Table Mountain in the north to Cape Point in the south and encompasses the seas and coastline of the peninsula. Within Cape Point the treacherous cliffs forming the most southwestern tip of Africa are some of the highest in the world and mark the spot where the cold Benguela current on the West coast and the warm Agulhus current on the East coast merge.

Inside the reserve you will find a variety of animals including buck, baboons and Cape Mountain Zebra as well as over 250 species of birds and indigenous flora that is found nowhere else in the world. Take a scenic drive, stop at one of the many picnic spots and tidal pools and travel to the Lighthouse lookout by funicular or on foot for spectacular views.
Walk to two shipwrecks on fine white sand - where your only encounter is with a troop of baboons.

Entrance fees are R75 for adults and R10 for children age 2-11 Special rates apply for school groups which must be pre-arranged.

The Two Oceans Restaurant caters for breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. There is also a well stocked curio shop and a new visitors centre.

DO NOT feed or try to touch the baboons. They are wild animals and can be aggressive.

• TAKE A BOAT TRIP
The Boat Company in Simon's Town offers trips on a motor boat or 8m catamaran to Seal Island and Cape Point, whale watching or high-sea adventures. All are tempting, but seeing, smelling and hearing the seals up close is an unbelievably rewarding experience.

The boats leave from the harbour, where some of our arms deal billions are on show, and passes the Roman Rock lighthouse, the only off-shore lighthouse in the country. It opened in 1861 but no lighthouse keeper has been stationed there since 1919 and servicing is done by helicopter.

On route, you may encounter a playful Bryde's whale or Southern Right whale, each swing of its tail bobbing you gently in the boat. Then the stench of the island hits you.

Seal Island is home to 75 000 Cape fur seals and 24 different bird species. An estimated 20 000 seal pups are born each year in the great white shark's hunting ground, a dangerous birthplace by any stretch of the imagination.

The seals are inquisitive and natural show-offs: they almost vie for your attention. Relish viewing them on their own smelly turf, not some soulless oceanarium.
Cost: R250 per adult, R150 per child

• SEE SHARKS UP CLOSE
The announcement that sharks and whales are to be included in South Africa's Big Seven top wildlife attractions is long overdue. These giants of the ocean attract thousands of tourists to the Cape.
False Bay is the only area in which great white sharks breach - no one seems to know why - and Apex Shark Expeditions allows you to witness this spectacle up close.

They also offer cage diving for the brave, and other packages. None are cheap, but they're sure to be memorable. Cost: R1 140 to R1 710.
Contacts: 082 364 2738, e-mail sharky1@mweb.co.za or visit www.apexpredators.com

• COMMUNE WITH THE BABOONS
Baboon Matters takes guided walks in the hills above Misty Cliffs and Kommetjie to see Chacma baboons, some of the Cape's last free-roaming large mammals. Human development has pushed them further and further south and today there are fewer than 300 left in the peninsula.
Most Capetonians deem them "problem" animals, but conservation group Baboon Matters believes humans are the problem as we've moved into their territory, bringing with us food and waste. In 2002, the group began baboon walks to educate the public.

Viewing the primates in their natural habitat, you feel like the Jane Goodall of Misty Cliffs. Witness incredible family ties, with nurturing moms, protective dads, randy teenagers and bullet-proof toddlers. The baboons completely ignore you - walking right past you as if you don't even exist.

It's not exactly mind-blowing stuff this, but it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will change your view of baboons.
Cost: R300. Contacts: 021 782 2015 or 084 413 9482 or visit www.baboonmatters.org.co.za

• SWIMMING WITH THE PENGUINS
Boulders Penguin Colony is home to a growing colony of the vulnerable African Penguin. Wooden walkways allow visitors to view the penguins in their natural habitat and there is also a new information centre. Children will love the penguins and their antics and Boulders Beach is also worth a stop for safe and enjoyable swimming.

Entrance fee of R35 for adults and R10 for children under the age of 12. This gives access to the beach as well as the walkways and viewpoints.

TIP: Combine a trip to see the penguins with a few hours on Boulders Beach, or a few hours in the quaint and historical town of Simon's Town. The penguins can also be visited before or after a visit to Cape Point.

Boulders Beach is a must if you wish to swim with a penguin - lay down your towel on first beach, take in the glorious panorama Mediterranean blue water enclosed by boulders, breathe in the frest salty air, close your eyes to the sounds of crashing waves and braying pelagic birds, swim with the penguins between your feet, the little fellows hop over your towel too. Signs warn visitors to check under their cars for the cute little fellows too.

• RIDE A HORSE ON NOORDHOEK BEACH
Noordhoek beach rides are legendary in the area. Sleepy Hollow Horse Riding is located on a smallholding stocked with horses and ponies. The animals are well-schooled and extremely tame.
Outrides are taken along the 8km stretch of beach, which has spectacular views of Chapman's Peak and Kommetjie, where the whales recently beached.
Think only happy thoughts though as you ride your steed in the early morning along the misty beach towards the Kakapo shipwreck and past contented dogs walking their owners.
Sunset rides are impossibly romantic, watching the sun set towards Hout Bay's Sentinel mountain and breathing in the fresh air fragranced with fynbos and salt.

Therapeutic riding is offered at Sleepy Hollow by trained volunteers of the South African Riding School for the Disabled, and caters for riders of all ages and experience. Three rides a day are available.
Cost: R350 per person for a two-hour outride
Contacts: 021 789 2341 or 083 261 0104 or see their site, www.sleepyhollowhorseriding.co.za

• ENJOY FRENCH FARE AT THE FOOD BARN
In keeping with Noordhoek's relaxed vibe, the Food Barn is pet and child-friendly, and serves sublime French fare.
For an even more relaxed experience, why not visit Franck Dangereux's bakery and deli? It's a great stopover for coffee and pastries, recipe books or fresh produce. It's all very French, but the prices are still local.
The Food Barn's winter bistro menu costs R175 per person, with a carafe of wine included.
If you're in the area during the week, Franck also offers cooking demos.
