In yesterday’s post I recapped the first part of our trip down the Cape Peninsula region where we drove down Chapman’s peak and then adventured around the cape of Good Hope Reserve. In today’s post I will recap our second half of the Cape Peninsula trip with Take 2 Tours.
A few quick words about my outfit to start off with. Since we had a bunch of activities planned for the day I wanted to stay comfy yet cute at the same time. So I opted for these high waisted denim shorts from Grlfrnd denim. They are seriously one of my fave pair of denim shorts, and guess what you can also get them customized! For my next pair I am totally going to do that ! I paired the top with this romantic boho blouse from Tularosa. The blouse is so breezy and has the prettiest details like a keyhole neckline with delicate tie closures, lace accents and an adjustible drawstring hem. Underneath I wore a one piece from Mia Marcelle swimwear. This super sleek one piece is not your average one piece and has a super daring sexy back and a cheeky bottom. It is such a statement piece and looks so great even as a bodysuit! I finished the look with beige lace up sandals from Raye.

We started off the second part of the trip by visiting Cape Point ostrich farm. This was such a fun experience as we got to feed these beautiful giant birds. It was my first time seeing them in person and it was truly incredible.
Next up we went to see more birds, but tiny ones – penguins! Boulder’s beach in Simon’s Town is a must visit if you ever visit Cape Town as it is the only place in the world where you will find penguins frolicking in warm climates! They are beyond adorable (and clumsy haha!) and watching them in their natural habitat being in their own element was such a pleasure. While you are at Simon’s Town, make sure to walk around the super cute town and treat yourself to some beautiful African jewelry. I wanted all of it! And a good spot for lunch is Seaforth restaurant – get the Cape Malay curry it was delicious!
We also stopped by St James Beach for a little late afternoon sunshine and beach time. This beach has these colorful changing rooms all lined up which is such a pretty sight! A little further down is Muizenberg beach which has similar colorful huts, although the beach is much bigger and is very popular for surfing.
Lastly we visited the world famous Constantia which is one of the wine producing regions of South Africa. Constantia in general was so quaint and charming, the wine countryside reminded me a lot of Napa! There are tons of wineries to visit, but we choose to go to oldest winery in the country called Groot Constantia for a wine tasting and also for touring the beautiful heritage grounds. All the buildings here have the Cape Dutch architecture style which is very unique to this region. It was a wonderful evening to end our incredible day and to top it all off – we were also photobombed by a baboon ! These sneaky guys come into the vineyards as they love the grapes haha, something I learnt for the day ;).
