During the peninsular tour we saw baboons and ostriches
We stopped at Cape Point and also the Cape of Good Hope

Today was the last day of the Gate1 Tour. Nothing was scheduled, so we decided to go on the City Bus Tour which went along the peninsula which allowed you to get on and off at scheduled stops.
There was intermitant rain, so we only did one main activity - Cape Bird World
