Cape Peninsula Tour by Sidecar South Africa Travel Vlog
Come join us as we explore the Cape Peninsula by sidecar tour with Cape Sidecar Adventures (http://www.sidecars.co.za/)
as a day trip from Cape Town, South Africa in our latest travel vlog. Our guide Bradley was awesome and our first order of business was to put on leather jackets, a helmet with cool goggles and a bandana. We took turns riding in the sidecar and on the back of the motorcycle as we visited Muizenberg, Simon's Town, Shark Spotters, Boulders Beach (to visit a penguin colony), Cape Point, The Cape of Good Hope, Chapman's Peak and Camps Bay just to name a few. Overall, it was an awesome outing and something we highly recommend for anybody visiting Cape Town or Stellenbosch.

Cape Peninsula Tour by Sidecar South Africa Travel Vlog video transcript:
Well good morning good morning. It is a beautiful day here in Cape Town. And today we're going on an excursion. We're going to be traveling down to the Cape Peninsula. But this just isn't any regular tour. We are going in sidecars. Yeah. Sidecars.
So confession time. We actually did a sidecar tour when we were in Stellenbosch last week but it was a taster. It was a very short tour. This time around it is a full day thing. All day.
Yeah, I'd say this is a better fit. So we're just suiting up here. So I'm putting it on the leather jacket and next up is the bandana.
That fits good doesn't it Audrey? Double jackets. Looking good. It is winter here in Cape Town so biker gal.
And the coolest thing I have to say about this helmet is just the sunglasses. They are kind of like sunglass goggles.
So for now you can take this down but if you need it when you're on the bike if you're behind another car or fumes or a lot of wind in your face just pop it up.
I'm going to make bikers out of you today. Bradley is going to make a biker out of us.
Okay, first stop on the tour. First stop of the day. So we're basically overlooking Muizenberg here. Yeah. And we've got some incredible views. Like way off in the distance you can see some mist and we've just got like yeah such a nice day. This time of year it should be like cold and rainy but we've really lucked out.
So our next stop here is at the Shark Spotters and this guy is actually looking for sharks down in the water because there is a whole bunch of surfers down there.
So we made it to the Cape of Good Hope so we're paying our fee. It is a 135 Rand per person.
Sammy boy. You've been riding in the sidecar all along. How are you enjoying it? It has been so cool.
So we made it to the Cape of Good Hope and this is the South-Western most point on the African continent. There is this big sign where you can have your photo taken.
We're egging Sam on to see how close he can get to the ostrich.
So we grabbed a snack. Spicy beef biltong and we've also ordered pizzas. And we love our biltong. Let's start with biltong.
And for those who have never tried Biltong it is basically like the South African style of jerky.
I've seen signs here for baboons. Apparently they roam around and they like to steal your food.
Alright, time for the big unveil. We ordered pizza. The Napolitan.
This one has avocado, bacon and feta.
The update is we are out of breath but enjoying the views from the top. Oh, come on. It wasn't that hard of a climb. If we come here a 3rd time I'm taking the funicular.
Next up we have made it to Boulders Beach where the main attraction is penguins, penguins and more penguins. There is a colony of penguins here and we're going to go check it out.
So time for an update. We are currently driving Chapman's Peak and I think this is probably the most beautiful part of the drive so far today. The scenery is just stunning and the color of the water it is like turquoise and blue and green. I know. And the sun is out. And it is just incredible and that is saying a lot because most of the scenery on this drive today has been really incredible but this just takes the cake and then the icing on top with the cherry. Oh, it has got everything.
This is part of our Travel in South Africa video series showcasing South African food, South African culture and South African cuisine.
