Boulders Beach Colony Boulders Beach Penguin Colony Around 800 000 tourists visit Simonstown annually to watch and photograph the African Penguin and enjoy the beaches at Boulders in Table Mountain National Park. Few visitors realise that despite their amusing antics and endearing appearance, African penguins are endangered. Boulders beach is the “the most accessible” place in the world to make the acquaintance of the endangered African Penguin African penguins used to be known as jackass penguins, because of the braying sounds they make. The birds breed in colonies stretching from southern Namibia to Port Elizabeth. The history of the Boulders Penguins began in 1983 when a pair was spotted on Foxy Beach at Boulders. The birds are suspected to have come to False Bay from island colonies around the coast A possible reason for the rapid increase in penguin numbers at the time, was that False Bay had just been closed to commercial pelagic fishing, which meant an abundance of food for the penguins. Life for penguins along this coast is however not easy. On land they compete for limited nesting space, while predators such as resident’s dogs and cats are a threat. The impacts of climate change, with short burst of high rainfall or days of extreme heat have detrimental effects on successful breeding. The impacts of irresponsible tourism activities can increase the stress levels of the birds which in turn may affect their breeding success. In the water, they compete with Seals and Sharks for food and are constantly at risk of being affected by oil spills or other pollutants. World penguin numbers have declined from more than 1million pairs in circa 1920. The first full census was done in 1956 an accounted for approximately 140 000 breeding pairs. Today there are less than 18000 breeding pairs remaining. Boulders is home to approximately 1000 breeding pairs (just over 3000 penguins. . Spend an hour on the Boulders boardwalks, watching the penguins go about their daily lives and absorbing the infographics along the way, pose for selfies or enjoy the day on the Boulders beach either way you will leave with a once in a lifetime experience. Swimming out to sea with a penguin when it goes hunting is very special , surfing in on the waves as they come home is unforgettable! http://www.sanparks.org/parks/table_mountain/tourism/attractions.php#boulders Entry Fees are R65 per adult and R35 per child : Valid from 1 November 2015 Entry can also be obtained by presenting a Wild card or Green Card/ T and C’s Apply Gate times Boulders Winter: April - September 08:00 - 17:00 Summer: December - January 07:00 - 19:30 February - March 08:00 - 18:30 October - November 08:00 - 18:30 Visitor Experience Beach Experience
Cape Point , Table Mountain National Park A large number of people who visit Cape Point do so to say they have been to the most south westerly tip of Africa, to use the famous Flying Dutchman Funicular, visit the old lighthouse, or to dine at the Two Oceans Restaurant. But Cape Point is also home to some of the most amazing untouched beaches in South Africa 1. Diaz Beach If you’ve been up to the old lighthouse at Cape Point, or travelled on the Flying Dutchman Funicular, then you’ve most likely seen Diaz beach from above. But the view from sea level is equally enthralling, and well worth the 20-minute walk down (and 40 minute walk back up). This beach is right at the very tip of Cape Point, on the western side, and at the base of impressive 200 metre high cliffs. And while the currents here make swimming dangerous, a trip down to the beach will offer a whole new perspective on Cape Point – perfect for photographers and quiet romantic walks. Most often you’ll have this little piece of paradise all to yourself. 3. Maclear Beach You’ll need to walk a short distance to get to Maclear Beach at Cape Point, but that’s half the charm of this small sandy strip on the Cape Point coast. The route through dense fynbos sets this up as one of the more secluded and intriguing sections of Cape Point. Plan a visit to this beach at low tide, when you can explore the rock pools with the younger members of your family. If you have the appropriate permits and experience, this beach also makes for excellent diving and fishing. Maclear Beach is located close to the famous Cape Point sign at the most South Western tip of Africa. 3 . Buffels Beach Buffels Bay is one of the most popular locations with day visitors to Cape Point. There are fixed braai (barbeque) places to cook up a storm, and it’s the perfect spot to enjoy a picnic with the whole family. There is a tidal pool which offers a safe place to swim at Cape Point. The views over False Bay and up towards Cape Point are worth the visit to Buffels Beach alone, and a quick dip in the tidal pool is the perfect way to cool off after a busy day of exploring the reserve. Olifantsbos Beach Olifantsbos offers visitors a beautiful rocky point and small sandy beach on the western peninsula of Cape Point, a short drive away from the main focal point of the reserve. This rugged section of the reserve offers a selection of hikes and walks, and it’s also the starting and finishing point for the popular Shipwreck trail. There’s a fantastic picnic spot with ablutions and parking nearby, and when the southeasterly winds pick up along with the incoming tide, surfers flock to the waters to enjoy some of the best waves in the region. Platboom Beach Platboom Beach at Cape Point is possibly the wildest and most unspoilt of the lot. This vast stretch of idyllic beach is perfect for long, peaceful walks. In fact, it’s easy to spend an entire day exploring this coastline without seeing another person. Birds flourish in this environment, and it’s not uncommon to see ostriches and baboons foraging on the beach. There are no lifeguards on this beach, so swimming is not recommended, but on a hot day, you’ll be tempted to spend most of the walk wading ankle-deep through the crystal clear Atlantic water. Pack a picnic and plenty of water, and find a spot to yourself to enjoy one of Cape Town’s most unique beaches. Please note: Always exercise caution when venturing into the waters to swim or surf at Cape Point There are strong currents that make some of these beaches unsuitable for swimmers, and there are no lifeguards on duty, Visitor Experience Beach Experience

Shark Diving Unlimited Shark Diving Unlimited offers a spectacular adventure in the “Shark Capital” of the world, Gansbaai.  Located just outside Cape Town, the expedition allows guests to escape the city, enjoy some beautiful scenery and come face to face with the ocean’s most majestic apex predator. Owned by the “Sharkman” Mike Rutzen, star of multiple National Geographic and Discovery Channel nature documentaries , Shark Diving Unlimited offers a variety of activities beyond diving in the cage.  For those who don’t want descend into the shark’s domain and prefer staying dry, there are photography tours, observation tours from the boat and between May and August, the shark’s majestic predatory behaviour of breaching (jumping clear out of the water) may be observed. Visitors can make their own way to Gansbaai, a great weekend spot, or utilise the company’s comfortable daily transfer bus from Cape Town.  Upon arrival they are treated to a warm breakfast, a safety briefing and are then on their way out to sea to find some great whites.  Guests do not need to be able to swim or be scuba certified as the activity requires a simple breath hold technique that even children can master.  They also provide thick wetsuits, masks, snacks on board and lunch and hot showers upon return to shore. The company uses most of its profits to fund scientific research, in collaboration with Dr Sara Andreotti, a marine biologist at Stellenbosch University.  Together with Mike Rutzen, Dr Andreotti has been attempting to preserve the great white shark through a series of studies on the genetics of the white shark population around the South African coastline.  So far they have discovered that the South African white shark has the lowest genetic diversity for sharks in the world, with 89% of sharks sharing the exact same lineage. This low diversity could jeopardise the future survival of the species, and lead to possible extinction. Another threat to this majestic species is baited hooks, which are used by the government to protect swimming beaches, by effectively hooking (and in most cases killing) sharks.  Poaching for the shark’s valuable jaws and teeth is also a huge problem in the preservation of this species. “The great white shark is worth a lot when slaughtered for its jaws and teeth, but alive it can drive tourists to Cape Town, support guesthouses, restaurants and cage diving families and preserve the balance of the ocean,” says Rutzen. “Responsible tourism is paramount. If there is no responsibility for the ecosystem we are operating in, or care taken to preserve it, then we can’t be surprised when it’s taken away.” Rutzen, who is a founding member of “Shark Conservation And Research (SCAR), an organisation dedicated to raising funds and supporting high quality scientific research so that accurate information may be provided to governments to further preserve delicate eco systems. He is also a co inventor of the Sharksafe Barrier, an eco friendly solution to baited hooks, which  he hopes will soon be deployed on swimming beaches internationally to prevent negative encounters between man and shark, and in the process prevent the shark’s extinction. The company aims to prevent the extinction of the great white shark and prevent negative encounters between sharks and humans so we can coexist together for many years to come.

Cape Point . Table Mountain National Park The Cape Point experience Breath-taking vistas, untouched beaches, rolling fynbos clad hills, a world heritage site, home to rare and endemic plants, a wildlife refuge at the very Tip of the most South Western Point of Africa: Cape Point is this unique location. Perched on the edge of the world adjacent and to urban civilisation, Cape Point is beyond a doubt one of South Africa’s most magnificent sightseeing and tourist attractions. Mistakenly known as the collision point between two currents, the Cape of Good Hope Section of Table Mountain National Park, previously called the Cape Point Nature Reserve is approx. 7800 hectares. There are 250 different bird species that make the area home, 1500 indigenous plant species and an assortment of animal life that ranges from Bontebok to Baboon, Eland to Ostrich., Recognised as a World Heritage Site, this immaculately preserved landscape surrounded by a vast marine protected area is the source of many fantastic and real tales from a time gone by that make up the maritime history of the Cape. Notorious for its wild weather, the seas surrounding Cape Point – a narrow peninsula unlike any other in the world– are also a watery grave to 28 sunken ships The construction of the first lighthouse on one of the reserve’s highest peaks in 1859, has made the waters less dangerous and has in turn become one of the most popular tourist attractions at Cape Point. Visitors can either walk their way up to the light house or can opt to take a ride up to the lighthouse via the convenient and environmentally-friendly Flying Dutchman Funicular. The views from a ride in the Funicular leave you breathless and utterly dazed as you step off at the Very tip of Africa The vistas from the lookout points surrounding the lighthouse are unrivalled in Cape Town. Endless Ocean extends in every direction. On a clear day, it’s possible to see all the way across False Bay and in whale season the joy of looking down on a passing southern right whale is utterly magical One can also walk to the new revolving lighthouse which looks out over the jagged rocks below. This lighthouse is still in fact functional. It is the most powerful navigational beacon on the South African coast and emits three flashes every 30 seconds. If all the sightseeing has taken its toll the Two Oceans Restaurant whose interior takes its cue from the tones and textures of its natural surroundings is airy, understated and offers a welcome respite to your legs if you walked up to the lighthouse . The bleached-white ceiling mirrors the belly of a whale and the white and aquamarine decor make the restaurant elegant and calm. The sushi bar joins a seafood-focused main menu in providing customers with a range of food options to choose from. On good weather days of which there are many, visitors can dine on the Two Oceans’ outer deck, that affords unobstructed views of the endless coastline, and even if it’s dripping from the heavens, the restaurants endless glass windows provide diners with a panorama that makes one forget the weather!. But Cape Point is not just about the light houses and being an amazing Tourist Attraction in a national park. Cape Point has some of the best beaches in and around Cape Town and many of them are largely unknown and allow peace and solitude for those who venture down their length. Local surfers will tell you the coast around Cape Point has some of the wildest surfing in Cape Town. Cape Point is also home to a series of amazing hiking trails. The Cape of Good Hope Hiking Trail is an overnight trail of approx. 35 km and offers some of the best hiking on the peninsula. Keep your eyes open as there is always something flowering irrespective of the time of the year. A night spent in Cape Point is an utter delight allowing you an interrupted view of the night sky without any of the city pollution. The jewellery box sky that awaits you makes the walk worth the effort. The Shipwreck trail takes you along remote pristine stretches of beach and past the wreck of the Thomas T Tucker.This so-called liberty ship, built by the United States during World War II to carry troops and weapons, wrecked on the rocks in 1942, as she was sailing close to the Cape Point coastline in an attempt to avoid detection by German U-boats. The foggy weather made for difficult navigation, and believing they were close to Robben Island, the entire crew ran the ship ashore and safety, unaware of the distance from Robben Island, leaving the large cargo ship behind to ultimately meet her demise. The SS Thomas T. Tucker is possibly the most photographed wreck at Cape Point, and the birdlife that has taken up residence on the hull of the old ship makes for great photo opportunities. The locations for a special family picnic are endless but many opt to go to Buffels Bay so they can venture into the beautiful tidal pool on the edge of the picnic site. For those up for something different why not try a picnic at Platboom or Bordjiesdrif? For the more energetic bring your bike and get to know Cape Point from a different perspective. Many tourists are cycling through Cape Point and falling in love with it. Gentle, easy cycling allows one to enjoy the views and engage with the scenery in a fresh way. Cape Point has more to offer than many people realise and if truly is a changing kaleidoscope of vistas depending on the season. It is unique and unparalleled in its scenic beauty. A location every South African should visit. Visitor Experience Scenic Beauty

Soli Deo Gloria Stukkie hemel op aarde. Alle lof aan die binneversierder. Ons het gedink dis baie oulik na ons die fotos gesien het, maar dit was net oorweldigend toe ons daar instap! Dankie vir die gasvryheid van die eienaars. Ons sal verseker weer en weer hier tuisgaan. Die mooiste uitsig en sonsondergange ... 'n Baie spesiale plekkie! Fantastic holiday! We had a very pleasant stay at Soli Deo Gloria. The unit was tastefully furnished and comfortable, with a good view and direct access to the beach. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Thank you for a very enjoyable stay! This place has quickly become my favorite go to for a weekend getaway with the hubby. The rooms open directly onto the beach. The rooms are fully kitted with anything you can think of (even cooking is made convenient). The entire apartment enjoys the beach view, even the bathroom! The apartment has universal access, which makes it very convenient for those in wheelchairs. There's a fireplace which can be used as a braai as well. So no matter whether it is cold or hot, you will be comfortable. Oh and the best part...lazy boy chairs!! great for those cold days when you staying indoors.

EVERYBODY IS WELCOME and you are from all walks of life, nationalities, individuals, families, friends and groups with different abilities. We offer scheduled departure dates & private tours in South Africa as well as accommodation in Cape Town. On our ‘ONCE OF A LIFETIME’ tours you experience first-hand the amazing wildlife, stunning scenery, friendly local cultures, traditional specialties, interesting sounds, picturesque sunsets and lots more. EPIC EXPEDITIONS has been running since 1992 as an overland company. We have seen very few ‘enabled’ travellers enjoying the wide range of pleasures as an ‘overlander’. Being aware that there are many ‘enabled’ people who are able and wish to experience the same sense of adventure and thrill which ‘overlanding’ has to offer, the concept of EPIC ENABLED was born (2001). Epic Enabled is based in Cape Town and has a beautifully designed fully accessible Guest House in Noordhoek, established in 2010. The EPIC GUEST HOUSE provides the perfect getaway opportunity for a holiday in Cape Town either before, after or independently of our Kruger Safaris.

FLAMINGO TOURS & DISABLED VENTURES The achievement that we strive for each day with guests with special needs, as a tour operator for guests who are disabled, is to make a difference in their lives. To do this we make sure each guests is treated with dignity, respect and compassion. This might not be the “achievement” you are looking for, but to me this is the most significant achievement we can have in our books. The passion for this type of tourism. I have a “visitors book” dating back 21 years of making a difference for people with disabilities and their families, making their holiday “the best ever”, stating this, that you may read and I will personally bring in this book for you to read through, it is my life’s work testimonial to this achievement, of successfully conducting tours, pushing for changes at accommodations and attractions to be more aware of people with disabilities. Prior to 2004 it was very difficult, as people did not understand what tours for special needs guests was all about and many did not want “these” people in their establishment, but with the possibility of having the Paralympics things changed and with “Superman” becoming disabled opened a whole new understanding and acceptance of people with disabilities. So our greatest achievement to us is the reputation we have built over 21 years of compassion, understanding and offering free help and advise to making places more accessible for my very special guests. If you ask any tourism office whom can we contact to help make our establishment accessible they will give you my contact details and we will gladly offer advise, often even travel to the place to see where we can help. I love what I do, it still 21 years later gives me goose bumps when you see a persons face, doing something they only dreamt of - become reality! Each of our tours are unique and designed around each peron's "wish list" and their ability, this is to ensure that each person with special needs is catered for to the best of our ability, within the framework of what is available in our beautiful country. We have adapted transport, use only pre-checked accommodation, that we have personally inspected and only we driver/guide our tours to maintain the highest standard of quality. I am also a registered nursing sister and registered tourist guide. I have many testimonials from very happy guests that we can offer as proof of excellence.
