The South Peninsula has several mountains and National Parks, so it is understandable that there are numerous breathtaking walks and hikes to enjoy, all within a relatively small area. The walks range from short easy strolls to day walks that will satisfy the extreme hikers out there. There is a large amount of literature on all the hikes/walks in the area. You can take a 8km uninterrupted walk along the famous Long Beack, which ends below Chapmans Peak Drive.

Regular visitors to Kommetjie are our neighbours, the Chacma Baboons. Two different troops frequent the area, one of which often sleeps on the cliffs of Slangkop Mountain. These baboons are remnants of a far larger population and are amongst the real survivors on the Cape Peninsula. These fascinating mammals are an integral part of the ecosystem and we should do everything possible to ensure they can continue to co-exist with us. Many of our residents take great joy in the occasional nocturnal visits of small spotted animals called Genets, the most generalized and primitive of living carnivores. These impressive animals are highly proficient hunters, and are mostly solitary animals. There are two species, the Large-spotted Genet and the Small- spotted Genet, both are found in the Cape Peninsula. The rarely seen Cape Clawless Otter is well adapted to life on land and in the water. Otters are confined to remote and protected areas such as coastline, rivers and lakes. These secretive and nocturnal animals are occasionally encountered at the mouth of the Bokramspruit and on Long Beach, where they hunt crabs and slow moving fish.The greater Kommetjie area offers excellent bird-watching opportunities for both amateur and professional and over 130 species can be seen. A few examples are the shy Yellownosed Albatross, Cape Gannets, all 4 species of the marine Cormorant and the endemic African black oystercatcher. The nearby Wildevoelvlei is host to many wetland birds, including the Fish eagle and Lesser flamingo. The Cape Grey Mongoose is another local resident in the areas of coastal fynbos and is a highly adaptable hunter and skilled climber.

Over the summer season the Southern Right Whale comes to the south coast of South Africa to calf and mate, and this provides a wonderful opportunity to get close to and observe the whales basking in their natural habitat. A whale watching trip by boat is an exciting way to view the whales, you get as close as 15m before the engines are cut. Your vessel is an 8m long rubber duck with two 85 horse power engines. The trip lasts an hour and a half, and leaves from the near by Simons Town Harbor on a regular basis depending on the weather.
