Cape Town – Beautiful Introductions to Africa
Cape Town is a city like few others as the cityscape is not dominated by skyscrapers but by vertical mountains. Two different oceans curl around its coastal suburbs as forests rise above colorful neighborhoods and every view is backdropped by the drama of nature. Cape Town is a city with a mountain, two oceans, dozens of beaches, hundreds of hiking trails, and countless ways to raise your heart rate. Just landing at Cape Town International Airport is enough to give you goosebumps as your plane swoops over the ocean before descending past the peaks of the mountain chain.
You will be greeted at the airport by your private driver, and for the next nine days, this driver is at your disposal to take you to your different activities but also for journeys across the city, whether that’s to restaurants, cultural attractions, or any of the funky neighborhoods dotted about Cape Town. On your transfer to your hotel, you will enjoy pristine views of Table Mountain, and then from your suite in the five-star Cape Royale, you will enjoy glorious ocean vistas. Located in Green Point, your hotel is within easy reach of the city’s diverse attractions. You are less than ten minutes away from white-sand beaches, five minutes from the center of the city, and just a short walk from the charms of the V & A Waterfront. Green Point is a trendy upmarket neighborhood that also has its own distinctive array of bays and restaurants. After you arrive and settle in, the day is at your leisure and your driver can make dinner reservations if required.

Everything about Cape Town compels your adventurous spirit. Table Mountain provides the majestic backdrop with a mountain face that shocks with the enormity of nature. Two oceans cascade around the city and bring with them the great white sharks and massive whales. Remote trails hang above the city, and you are never more than 15 minutes away from a beautiful coastal hike or mountain expedition. Cape Town is a city for adventure and one that is always finding new ways to get your heart racing yet it is also a city that also knows how to bring visitors softly down to earth. For all the action, Cape Town is also a place for peaceful evenings and wild sunsets over the ocean.
Your handcrafted 9-day tour will celebrate the untamed adventure of Cape Town. An itinerary that is inspired by the locals, you will experience new ways to add adrenalin to their city. Climbing Table Mountain is an obvious place to start, but after admiring the views, you will then abseil down its vertical face. On another day, you will explore its hidden side on a canyoning adventure, throwing yourself down natural waterslides and abseiling down waterfalls. Cape Town’s panoramas are unlike any other, and you will admire them as you skydive over the northern beaches and paraglide above the mountain slopes.
Lush blue waters surround the city and will find ways to get your heart racing in many different ways. Kayak along the white beaches, learn how to surf on the perfect rolling breaks of Muizenberg and then jump into a cage to watch the action at Shark Alley. You will be just meters from the ocean’s greatest predator to watch them hunt seals and jump high from the water. On a day of exploration, you will visit the tip of Africa and wind over the mountain passes and cross the reserves packed with springbok and rock dassies. A vintage WWII sidecar is one way to do it, but there is also the option of mountain biking along the edge of Africa.
After settling in on the first day, look forward to a full week of activities with some taking up the full day and others just half a day or less. You will have time to see every side of the city, and you will have more choices that you can handle with bars, restaurants, and entertainment to end your active days. A private driver will provide expedited transport to any activities but is also available throughout the rest of the day so you can really explore different parts of the city as you would like. Fully complementing the days’ thrills is the enchantment of the Cape Royale, a five-star hotel in the trendy neighborhood of Green Point.
