Today is at leisure. To enhance your Cape Town experience, we recommend you enjoy a sightseeing tour and one of our experienced Africa Specialists will be happy to assist in advising you on which tours may suit your interests.

The city has several well-known natural features that attract tourists, most notably Table Mountain, for panoramic views of the city.  Cape Point at the end of the Cape Peninsula offers dramatic views of the ocean below the cliffs.

Suggested tours - A visit to Robben Island is a poignant and moving experience as visitors see where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned. Or perhaps consider a Townships tour for an interesting cultural experience. The Cape Winelands with their picturesque towns offer wine estate tours and wine tastings. For the scenic side take a full day Cape Peninsula Tour - experience Cape Point's dramatic views and admire some adorable penguins!

OPTIONAL SIGHTSEEING TOURS


WINELANDS TOUR

Enjoy a superb day dedicated to celebrating the glorious grape, the exceptional Winelands region, and the heavenly scenery! The area is rich with history, and you will experience this as you view Cape Dutch architecture and move through the region to experience a wine cellar tour and tasting, where you’ll learn all about the process of winemaking, from grape to goblet.

Visit the exquisite little town of Franschhoek, pass by the impressive Huguenot Monument and to enjoy lunch (own account) in this town with a reputation for gourmet fare. Then travel over the Helshoogte Mountain Pass to the charming university town of Stellenbosch.

Stroll through this little town, absorbing the quaintness, and sneaking into the odd shop or two! Enjoy a wine tasting at two different wine estates where you’ll be able to purchase your favourite wine to take back home!

PENINSULA TOUR

The tour travels along the exquisite stretch of coastline known as Millionaire’s Paradise – from Clifton to Camps Bay, to the exclusive beach hamlet of Llandudno – towards the charming working harbour of Hout Bay. Here you have the option of embarking on an up-close-and-personal Seal Island cruise (optional and own account).

Then admire the breathtaking ocean views along the legendary Chapman’s Peak Drive, before arriving at our lunch spot (own account) at the Cape of Good Hope Section of the Table Mountain National Park.  Meander back along the coast towards the City, visiting the historic naval port of Simon’s Town and the endearing African penguin colony at Boulder’s Beach (own account).

The last stop of the day is Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens with its over 3500 species of flora. With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers.

WALK TO FREEDOM TOUR

Experience the wonderful raw energy of our Townships in one unforgettable morning. After a visit to District Six (closed on Sundays), where you will learn a little of the history of the townships, we continue on to the oldest township Langa and its people. Strolling through Langa Township, pop in to a local market, an Arts & Crafts center and visit a traditional healer. Experience the warm hospitality at a local Bed & Breakfast as well as a crèche that provides local children with a safe haven and fun environment. Then from Langa we visit two other townships, Khayelitsha and Gugulethu to get a more in-depth look at the vibrant communities. For those who have the time, we recommend you extend to a full day tour with a visit to Robben Island in the afternoon. Home of Nelson Mandela for so many years, it’s a highly charged and emotional moment when you visit the site of this suffering, and realize how far South Africa has come from those days.
