Steam train day trip around the Cape Peninsula
Think ahead! Book a Sunday steam train family day trip around the Peninsula (fully booked Jan and Feb – next available on 1 March 2014).
The scenic route winds along the rugged coast of False Bay, with the waves crashing on the rocks below, through villages scrambling up the steep slopes and along the beautiful coves and beaches.
The train leaves Cape Town and travels between the famous Newlands rugby and cricket grounds to Muizenburg, travelling on to False Bay where the view of the ocean is spectacular. The railway line skirts the rocks as it travels through the quaint village of Kalk Bay, then snakes through Fish Hoek and Glencairn, finally coming to an end in Simonstown with a view of the naval dockyard.
Passengers are free to go to the beach, grab a bite to eat or stroll through the town.
The train returns along the same route back to Cape Town.
