Detailed Description

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.

Note that the detailed itinerary should be used as a guide as some activities are weather dependent.
