Your day starts with a spectacular cable car ride up Table Mountain (weather permitting). This broad sweep of mountainous heights, together with Signal Hill, forms the natural amphitheatre of the City Bowl and Table Bay harbour. Head back down the mountain by cable car and proceed to the Southwestern tip of Africa, known as Cape Point, where it is fabled that two oceans meet. En-route you will stop at Boulder’s Beach, the residence of the adorable frolicking African penguin colony. Continue your drive to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve where you are provided with an opportunity to view animals like the Cape Mountain zebra, mischievous baboon and blissful ostrich; all of which reside in the reserve among the indigenous Fynbos. Lunch is typically enjoyed at a local restaurant situated right on the coast and will likely include fresh seafood. After your meal, continue your scenic drive toward the dramatic and beautiful Chapman’s Peak. You will return to your hotel in the late afternoon.
Explore the city from all sides – the history, the people, their cultures, their cuisines, as well as contemporary Cape Town and its artisanal trends. Today you will sample some traditional cultural dishes while you walk and explore the city. By the end of this tour, you will be well orientated to the city as you walk the whole city flat from one side to the other— all the while exploring trends and the changes as you go. Since this tour is custom crafted, be sure to express your interests to your guide ahead of time. Some people love to stroll the neighbourhoods and people watch, while others are more focused on food. No matter what you choose to do, the experience is unforgettable!
