This fun-filled 3-hour bike excursion is the ideal way to explore the beauty of South Africa's Cape Peninsula and the Atlantic Seaboard, riding beside the deep blue sea and beneath the iconic Table Mountain with unsurpassed vistas from your bicycle.
The Darwin's Trail 3 hour Seaside Cycle Tour leaves Camps Bay with the state-of-the-art mountain bicycles, heading along the promenade with the fresh Atlantic Ocean breeze in the face. The tour makes its way to Maidens Cove beach, where magnificent views of the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range and Camps Bay Beach can be enjoyed. The journey continues along the western side of the Cape Peninsula, past Clifton and its four attractive beaches. The bungalows perched on the water’s edge were built during World War 1 as temporary homes, in a time of housing shortage.
In Bantry Bay, which was once called Botany Bay, the tour stops at Darwin’s Rocks, to encounter more about the explorer and his revolutionary theory. From there they take the beachfront promenade into Sea Point, which earned early fame in 1776, and is now a haven for Capetonians walking and jogging alongside the sea. The bike tour continues to the Green Point Light House which is the oldest working lighthouse in South Africa and through the new Green Point Urban Park to the famous Cape Town Stadium.
The guided bicycle tour returns via High-Level Road with its magnificent views over the ocean, cycling beneath the mighty Lion’s Head and Signal Hill, back towards Camps Bay where guests may indulge in canapés and bubbly whilst watching the sunset in the deep blue waters of the Atlantic.
The Darwin's Trail Seaside Cycle Tour can be done as a morning/afternoon excursion and includes all bicycles, equipment, guides and canapés and sparkling wine (or non-alcoholic beverage of your choice) afterwards.
