Highlights of this experience include two days of hiking (or running) the trails amidst stunning coastal scenery and indigenous flora. You may also spot chacma baboons, cape mountain zebra, eland, bontebok, red hartebeest, ostrich and the elusive cape clawless otter.

Visit the iconic Cape Point Lighthouse and the Cape of Good Hope while you are in the reserve. And the blockbusting, super highlight: a night in a remote cottage located right on or near the beach. We take care of all meals and logistics while you are busy exploring in remote solitude. Our guides are experts in the fauna and flora of the trails and beaches, enhancing the treasures of this reserve.

En route to or from the reserve, we visit the colony of endangered African penguins at Boulders Beach. Additionally, between July and November there is a good chance of spotting migratory southern right whales.

The breakaway to the Cape of Good Hope is intended to appeal to visitors who enjoy and are familiar with hiking or running in nature. 

It is ideal for travelers who want to explore this iconic destination in solitude, away from the crowds and up close.

Chris and Jacqui

Chris dedicates his life to having as much fun as possible. After 13 long years in the commercial catering industry, Chris realized that he had forgotten how to breathe. So in 2001, armed with a desire to enjoy his working hours, he took a deep breath and walked out of the office. Now, as he pounds the ground on a trail run, climbs a rock face, or rides a bicycle, Chris enjoys every breath. As a result, he constantly inspires travelers on his tours with his energy, enthusiasm, and pure enjoyment of life. Chris is a consummate organizer and loves the little operational details that go with managing or overseeing a tour.

After earning a doctorate in molecular biotech, Jacqui served time in the corporate grind of big pharma before discovering tourism. Thanks to 20 years of travel as a guide, tour leader, and trip designer, Jacqui can offer qualified recommendations to the finest destinations and informed insight on experiencing them. Jacqui has a passion for the natural environment and a genuine desire to blend information with experience. This keeps her returning to the road as a guide when not consulting, supporting, or making tea for Active Africans.
