2 days in Cape Town. Penguins, Whales and more

A complete guide. Rent a car and enjoy cape town saving money.

We arrived to Cape Town, after watching all the prices we decided to rent a car in order to save money (we saved like a 70% relating to the cost of the excursion). We paid in total, including the fuel u$s 140 for 2 days and 4 people.


Thanks to this where able to visit in DAY 1:


Boulders Beach – Penguin Colony.


This amazing Penguin colony can be visited in a couple hours, the entrance fee is u$s12 and is extremely beautiful. the penguins are totally wild and free, is possible to watch the routine, rituals and lyfe-style. they are really close (so close that you can be beaten by them if you dont follow the rules.

Opening hours: Every day from 8 to 17.

In this case we decided not to pay for a place that profit from the use of animal, so we just entered and admire this beautiful animal.

Opening time: every day from 9:30 to 17:30

Day 2:

Whale watching Hermanus.

This experience was La Gringa’s favourite, we went with “Hermanus Whale Watchers”, first they explained us several things about how they have been exploded and how that affects their life. Once in the boat they were always respectful with regarding the approach.

The guides explained to us a lot of things they were clearly experts.


Bo-kaap Neigbourhood.

Bo-Kaap is known for its brightly coloured homes and cobble stoned streets. The area is traditionally a multicultural neighbourhood, and most of its population is Muslim. According to the South African Heritage Resources Agency, the area contains the largest concentration of pre-1850 architecture in South Africa, and is the oldest surviving residential neighborhood in Cape Town.

Whales Coast Mall.

This is a quiet fancy place but the prices regarding our countries were really good and that’s why we decided to spent a couple of hours in this place.
