Afterward, we walked back down in hope to spot a baboon. Before we arrived at the parking lot, our guide had explained that the baboons are dangerous if you keep food around. Many baboons were walking around us, searching for food. And the tourists that weren’t informed about this often found a baboon stealing their food or drinks.
The final stop was at the Cape of Good Hope, and on our way, we spotted some wild ostriches. The driver pulled over so we could see them from up-close. It was not sure if the ostriches were used to humans, so we kept a safe distance to take pictures. As we drove further, we saw Elands, which is a massive kind of antelope. Finally, we arrived to take photos of the famous Cape of Good Hope sign. After waiting in line to take pictures, we went to the rocks near the ocean to enjoy the sea breeze.
From there we drove back through the small towns Scarborough, Misty Cliffs, and Kommetjie as well as the scenic drive of Ou Kaapse Weg. During the ride, our guide was talking about the history of these towns and the impact of apartheid. Even though this was very interesting, most of us couldn’t stay awake after the beautiful day on the Cape Point tour with bicycles.
