Day 2: Cape Town

Breakfast

Half day Cape Town City Tour with Table Mountain Aerial Cableway

Marvel at the sights of Cape Town from the aerial cableway and plateau on Table Mountain. The Mother City is synonymous with the elegant mountain that is flanked by Devil’s Peak to the east and Lion’s Head to the west, providing a dramatic backdrop to the city. Table Mountain holds an unusually rich biodiversity and forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a protected area. Rock hyrax, or dassie as they are locally known, are often seen scampering through the scrub and the views from the summit over Table Bay, Robben Island and the Atlantic seaboard are breathtaking. The cable cars depart every 10 to 15 minutes and rotate 360 degrees as they travel up to 302 metres above sea level, giving passengers panoramic views over the city. Five minutes is all it takes to reach the summit and once there you can marvel at the views, have a bite to eat in the restaurant or do a bit of shopping at the extensive curio shop. The cableway only operates when weather permits.

Be captivated by the multi-ethnic character and historical wealth of the Mother City. Cape Town is a rare cultural gem, resulting from the amalgamation of different nationalities and indigenous tribes.

Alongside high-rise office blocks, a harmonious blend of architectural styles has been meticulously preserved, including Edwardian, Victorian and Cape Dutch. Narrow, cobblestone streets and the Islamic character of the Bo-Kaap enhance the cosmopolitan ambiance. The itinerary takes you to

The City Hall, the Castle of Good Hope – this pentagon-shaped fort is the oldest surviving building in South Africa; the Company’s Garden – a large public park, originally Jan van Riebeeck’s

Vegetable garden, which he grew to feed the original colony as early as 1652; and see Signal Hill with spectacular panoramas over the city.

Day 3: Cape Town

Breakfast

 

Full day Cape Peninsula Tour

– Pick up from your hotel for a full day Cape Peninsula tour. Discover both the Atlantic and Indian Ocean coastlines. The first stop is at the charming fishing village of Hout Bay. Then continue along the Atlantic coastline to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point – the most south westerly tip of Africa and the mythical meeting place of two great oceans. On the return trip, pass through the naval town of Simon’s Town and then traverse the fishing port of Kalk Bay and the lush suburb of Constantia. The day will end with a visit to the renowned Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens before returning to your hotel.

– Boat cruise from Hout Bay Harbour to Duiker Island. The island is a sanctuary for thousands of seals (actually sea lions originating from the Antarctic) as well as a variety of seabirds, cormorants and sea gulls. It is illegal to land on the island, but the trip takes you within arm’s reach of the seals who seem to know they’re the centre of attention and put up a fantastic performance, diving and twisting with amazing speed and agility (weather permitting).

– Visit the jackass penguins at Boulder’s Beach. This small piece of the coastline has become a haven for these birds and is one of the few remaining places where they are still able to roost without threat from human interference. Here you will be able to view these birds up close whilst not interfering with their natural habitat.
