Table Mountain greets every Cape Town visitor as its smooth northern slopes rise for a kilometer above the city. Devil’s Peak rises to one side, while the evocatively shaped Lion’s Head stands on the other. Beneath the peaks are colorful city streets and the frothy waves of the Atlantic Ocean. It is hard to find another city that is similarly defined by the power of nature. The mountain and ocean backdrop pervade through Cape Town’s atmosphere, imbuing a relaxed rhythm that is vastly different to other cities of its size. Gaze up at Table Mountain, and you can feel the urge for adventure, but as your eyes shift to the coast, you will feel nothing but overwhelming tranquility.
You will be greeted at the airport by your private guide and transferred to the V & A Waterfront, a journey that will take you past the face of the mountain and then leave you in a suite that overlooks the harbor. The One & Only Cape Town is amongst South Africa’s most luxurious residences, a five-star hotel with views over both the mountain and the water. It’s set in a fully pedestrianized area, where fine dining restaurants and waterfront bars offer comfortable places to spend the evenings. It’s very safe to walk here throughout the day and the night, ensuring you can explore the local area in comfort.
After checking in, you will enjoy a welcome drink with your guide who will go through your Cape Town itinerary to assist with dinner recommendations and reservations, along with providing private transport throughout your stay. So you can go wherever you want to go at your leisure. For tonight, the guide will have booked you a table at Africa’s most celebrated fine dining establishment that is consistently in Restaurant magazine’s world’s top 20 restaurants. Your seven-course degustation menu with wine is a sublime introduction to the flavors and creativity of South Africa.
