Table Mountain, the historic Waterfront and Bo-Kaap, crashing breakers and glorious sunsets.
Cape Town is one of the most beautifully situated cities in the world. Cradled by Table Mountain and surrounded by crashing breakers and glorious sunsets, it has immense charm and historical interest. So we never tire of soaking up the beauty and buzzy atmosphere of this relaxed city. No Cape Town holiday is complete without taking the cable car up Table Mountain. Allow enough time to enjoy an easy hike on the top – just 45 minutes will get you to Maclears Beacon and away from the crowds. Alternatively why not try hiking up the mountain? Or abseiling off the top for the ultimate adrenaline rush?
In the city, you can visit the colourful Bo-Kaap. Or try out one of the array of cosmopolitan dining options. Why not browse through the vibey street markets around Greenmarket Square? Or visit an eclectic array of museums from District Six to the Museum of Gold .
Alternatively meander through the wonderful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, head out to Robben Island by boat or simply relax on the beach of Camps Bay or Clifton. When you want to range further, the Cape Peninsula offers one of the finest coastal drives in Africa – Chapmans Peak Drive – to the Cape of Good Hope. Here you might see whales breaching just off the bay. Or quirky penguins on Boulders beach.
We can book some great tours for you. Take the boat cruise to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. Circle the Cape Peninsula. Or meander through the Cape Winelands tasting wine at boutique estates. We also recommend the uplifting Uthando township visit.
You can choose between scheduled tours for 6-8 people. Or private tours with our hand-picked specialist guides. Alternatively we can arrange car rental for you to explore The Mother City independently.
