Safari Highlights

Enjoy the last few days of your holiday by taking optional private tours with your friends today and tomorrow. Today, choose between a City, Table Mountain and Robben Island Tour or a Cape Peninsula Tour.

City, Table Mountain and Robben Island Tour

Depart on a comprehensive city orientation tour starting with a trip up Table Mountain by cable car with your guide. Continue on a city tour which includes a visit to two or three of the city's famous museums, the Castle of Good Hope and the Malay / Muslim quarters. Drive through the city centre and pass the houses of parliament. You will have an opportunity to visit the Company Gardens.

Make your way to the Clock Tower (Nelson Mandela Gateway) to board a ferry to Robben Island. The ferry operates on a scheduled basis and will be shared with other guests. Your guide will accompany you to the island. On arrival, he will introduce you to your private Robben Island guide. 

Cape Peninsula Tour

Journey along the Atlantic Seaboard and drive through the coastal suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton. Travel on past Bakoven and Llandudno, which are marked by shipwrecks which fell foul to the infamous Cape winter storms and then on to the scenic fishing village of Hout Bay. Head over the 600m heights of Chapmans Peak Drive.

Explore the rocky coastline and Cape Fynbos vegetation which is home to unique birdlife such as African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds amongst others. The opportunity is also there to view animals such as the Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok, Ostrich and Baboon as we enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Climb to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay and stop at the south western most point of Africa.

Visit Boulders Beach for an exciting close up encounter with African Penguins. Drive through the historical naval village of Simons town and over another spectacular mountain pass; Boyes Drive, where you will take in views of the quaint fishing harbour at Kalk Bay as well as the seaside villages of St James and Muizenberg.

Visit Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, with time to browse these magnificent gardens set on the slopes of Table Mountain before returning to the city.
