Detailed Description

Arrive in sunny South Africa and be welcomed by Cape Town’s sheer beauty as you travel to your luxurious suite on the V&A Waterfront via private transfer. Check-in to your room with sweeping views of the port and its gorgeous, mountainous backdrop. You will explore the vibrant V&A on your first afternoon, participating in family-friendly activities and dining under the striking Table Mountain. The next day, pop into the city’s eco-conscious farmers market for delectable local treats before discovering the ocean’s diverse sea life. After which, you will immerse yourselves in South Africa’s rugby heritage and take part in entertaining activities at the digital museum. The following day, continue your cultural tour of Cape Town with a trip to the city’s most significant highlights. Perfectly round off your stay in the city with a climb to the top of the imposing Table Mountain and witness the African sunset over the horizon as you dine on top of the world.

Spend your fourth and fifth nights in the enchanting suburb of Stellenbosch. You will pick ripe strawberries from their branches and taste the elite wine estates’ finest vintages and blends during your stay in the renowned town. Make your way back to the greater Cape Town area on day six and settle into your private guesthouse in Noordhoek where you will enjoy the endless white sand beach on horseback before tucking into artisanal pastries. The next day, traverse the beautifully rugged and famous Chapman’s Peak route as you wind your way through to Hout Bay. Look out over the mountain range and charming bay as you delight in the splendor of these serene sights. During your brief visit to Hout Bay, you will explore Africa’s largest birdlife sanctuary and marvel at the multi-colored flying creatures. You will return to Noordhoek for a peaceful night’s rest before setting off to Simon’s Town the following day.

On your trip to Simon’s Town, you will wade in the warmer waters of Cape Town’s eastern shorelines and bask in the sun alongside penguins at Boulders Beach. Enjoy freshly caught, authentic South African fish and chips that will bring the charming exploration of Simon’s Town to an end. On day nine, you will journey the Cape Peninsula to the must-see Cape of Good Hope. Here, you will bask in the picture-perfect meeting point of the two oceans that will be accompanied by a majestic, mountainous backdrop.
