Cape Town – Touching Down in the Mother City
Table Mountain stands majestic with the vertical face seeming to rise out of the city with the towering summit standing over the frothy waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The mountain is the compass point, the landmark that will guide your exploration over the next two days. On the journey from the airport, you will see Table Mountain, but before exploring it, you will journey along its hidden back slopes where the vineyards spread out between the trees for a sensual welcome to the country. A platter of charcuterie will accompany a guided tasting to introduce you to the flavors of South Africa and its famous local Pinotage.
The vineyards of Constantia are a perfect stop on route from the airport, and a great place to relax after your flight. Enjoy the dramatic views of the city and sit back as different wines are poured for your enjoyment. From here, your guides will take you along the mountain's base and into the city, to your hotel in Green Point. The 5-star Cape Royale enjoys incredible views over the ocean and is situated in an ideal position within the city. You are just a five-minute walk to the V & A Waterfront, where a series of fine dining seafood restaurants await your enjoyment. The surrounding streets feature some of Cape Town's most celebrated restaurants while the vibrant cafes of Bree Street are within a 15-minute walk. You will arrive at your hotel in the late afternoon, and the rest of your day is at your leisure.
