Your tour begins at the iconic center of Cape Town. Table Mountain is one of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes in Southern Africa and surely something that cannot be missed! Taking the cable car up, you’ll enjoy panoramic views of Lions Head and the Twelve Apostles overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Bring comfortable walking shoes, as there are beautiful trails at the top of Table Mountain which you can explore. If you’re not feeling adventurous, enjoy yourself in the Table Mountain Cafe for a cup of coffee and snacks.
We continue into Cape Town’s city centre where we will explore the beautiful and bright colourful homes of Bo Kaap. This small town nestled on the side of Signal Hill is one of Cape Town’s oldest neighborhoods. Venture through the small alleyways to walk beside the iconic colourful homes, enjoy the traditional cuisines from side shops in the area, or take a break to admire the beauty of Bo Kaap. This neighborhood may be tiny, but it packs a lot of excitement.
Camps Bay beach is one of Cape Town’s most beautiful and scenic areas. A perfect way to end the first day of this tour, you’ll enjoy the stunning views from Camps Bay, situated at the base of Table Mountain. Walk along the white sand beach to dip your toes in the chilly Arctic ocean, take a stroll along the beach strip to shop for souvenirs, or have a seat at some of Camps Bays best dining spots for supper and a cocktail. A sunset on the beach is a must see!
Second day of this tour takes you to the stunning wineries of Southern Cape. Enjoy another leisurly day wine tasting some of the best vineyards in Africa with this half day experience in Franschoek. We’ll guide you through some of the best wineries for casual tastings, a wine lecture, and you’ll enjoy a beautiful lunch at one of the vineyards. The mountain ranges and green peaks are what compliment this stunning area of Cape Town. In a sense, you’ll feel like you’re tucked away in a cove of Africa with endless stunning wines!
Penguins and Africa’s Southern-most tip is certainly something any visitor cannot miss. We’ll take the day driving along Cape Town’s stunning and scenic peninsula coast, taking moments to stop out of the car and take photos along the way. This is one of Africa’s most scenic ocean drives and you’ll surely have your noses pressed against the windows the entire way. Our first stop will be at Cape Point, a lighthouse situated at the peak of an overlook where you’ll have panoramic views of Cape’s Peninsula and the two oceans. There’s an option to take a cable car up if you’re not up for a hike, but be aware of baboons as you’ll have many sightings at this viewpoint.
We will then head our way to Boulders Beach where you’ll have time to leisurely enjoy the magnificent penguins of Cape Town. Sit yourself down at the beach where you can watch the penguins swim in the ocean or take a small stroll to the neighboring lookout where you’ll be able to witness hundreds of penguins nesting on the sand and collectively grooming themselves. A memorable highlight of Cape Town, this surely is a day where you won’t want to forget your camera!
A day of Cape Town’s history, you’ll start the day by hopping onto a ferry to cruise to Robben Island. This historic landmark of Southern Cape is an experience of a lifetime. Popularly known as the island which housed Nelson Mandela while he served time in jail, you’ll have time to walk around in a guided tour and be educated by those who were once convicted on Robben Island themselves. After the half-day excursion, you’ll have time to leisurely walk around Cape Town’s most prominent shopping area and have a bite to eat or shop till you drop. The V&A Waterfront not only offers activities such as riding a ferris wheel or finding a great seafood restaurant, but you can head your way into the grand mall where there will be plenty of opportunity to do some shopping of all sorts or find another great place to dine.
The last day of the tour will not be a dull one, as we head to one of Cape Town’s best and lively outdoor markets. The Old Biscuit Mill offers more shops and dining options for Cape Town, however on Saturday mornings the entire area turns into a street food fair with artisans crafts. Save your appetite for this experience, as you’ll be able to walk past mouthwatering options and enjoy the afternoon perusing amongst this lively atmosphere.
To end the day, we’ll head towards Kirstenbosch Gardens, a UNESCO Heritage site which offers gorgeous sceneries of the Twelve Apostles with hundreds of species of plant life. For any botanical enthusiast, this is the place to explore and have a leisurely stroll along the many garden paths. The garden recently built a modern tree walk which weaves through the high branches of sturdy oaks and pines – an experience you cannot miss!
