Did you know....The Cape Peninsula alone, which is smaller than the city of London, has more flowering plants than the entire British Isles. This is a collection of plants so extraordinarily rare and unique that they are a wonder of the natural world. 🌺

Penguin awareness day yay! 🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧🐧

Today is African Penguin Awareness Day 🐧

These little creatures are classified as Endangered, so you too can play a role in the conservation of African penguins.

There are lots to choose from, rescued from Boulders Beach, Stony Point or Bird Island, learn more at @SANCCOB saves seabirds

Chapman’s Peak, magnificent beauty just around the corner from Protea Point B&B!

WATCH: There’s no doubt why Chapman’s Peak Drive is considered one of the most magnificent in the world. The road that connects Hout Bay to Noordhoek has incomparable views of the mountains and the sea. Here is a short history of it...

Lighthouses to visit in the Cape

Simon’s Town is first on the list, check out our local lighthouse Roman Rock.

In the 1900s the Cape was home to a collection of lighthouses that lit the way for sailors and steered them clear of the coastlines' jagged rocks. Now only a few remain standing as fascinating historical monuments.

The Cape didn't have penguins until the 1980s and while we couldn't imagine our landscapes without them, here's how these flightless seabirds came to call Boulders Beach and Stony Point home.

You can just see the power in these animals!

You can just see the power in these animals!

If you thought that fleeing inshore, into shallow water would deter a killer whale …. Wrong!

An aerial predation is very much part of killer whales repertoire when the water depth required for sub-surface "build up" acceleration isn’t available or is possibly risky due to a rocky reef below.
This event unfolded a few hundred meters off Kalk Bay (north western corner of False Bay), providing a unique & amazing natural history spectacle from both from the land & sea.

Some of the critters in and around the valley, how diverse!

Southern Peninsula wine scene is happening at the moment πŸ·πŸΎπŸ‘Œ

This has been a long time coming...our first wine, a 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

All natural barrel fermented and aged for 18months in French oak.

We plan to work along side some of the best wine makers in the country to bring out small batch unique wines every harvest.

We’ve been working on this for a while, eventually we are ready for release this Friday only in our Noordhoek Taproom!

Tasting note:
Balance of old and new world.
White gold in colour, this wine has lovely terpene aromas with hints of peach, Kiwifruit and tropical fruits. There is a soft minerality on the palate bringing through lime zest, pear and lychee. The strong acid core adds weight and balance leading into a long finish with a punchy zing. @ Aegir Project β€’ Independent Brewery
