Full Day Cape Peninsula Tour

Bring your camera and plenty of film; we're headed for the Cape Point at the south western tip of the Cape Peninsula, and the most spectacular views in the world. The drive there is just as inspiring, passing steep mountains', secluded coves and sweeping beaches, as well as villages and fishing communities.
Our tour begins with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburb of Sea Point and Camps Bay with its glorious views of the Twelve Apostles, part of the Table Mountain range. We'll continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, one of Cape Town's best-kept secrets. Here you can take a short boat trip to Duiker Island (optional and for own account) to view the Cape Fur Seals, which inhabit the island. From here we travel to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, comprising over 17,300 acres of indigenous fauna and flora. Here we can see a variety of wildlife that includes baboons, rhebok, Cape Mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world's largest breeding grounds for tortoises. Bird-watchers, too, will find many fine species to observe.

The majestic coastline offers drama worthy of being called "Nature's Greatest Show." We'll be able to see the union of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and may even feel the brisk wind that is dubbed the "Cape Doctor" for its presumed curative powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, we'll return to Cape Town passing the Simon's Town naval base, we visit the Penguin colony at Boulders Beach, travel through Fish Hoek fishing village and over Muizenberg Mountain. Finally, we stop at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens for a short walking tour of these beautiful gardens. We return to Cape Town, passing the University of Cape Town, Rhodes Memorial and the Groote Schuur Hospital.

Half Day City And Table Mountain Tour

Our drive to the city centre takes us past famous landmarks such as Castle of Good Hope built in 1666 by the Dutch East India Company and City Hall, a baroque building the Grand Parade. As we follow the city’s main thoroughfare, Adderley Street, we will see St. George’s Cathedral, the Anglican Diocese of Nobel Peace Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and visit the South African Museum, noted for its natural history and anthropology collection. We visit the Company Gardens and the Malay Quarter [also known as the Bo-Kaap] which means "Above Cape" because of its location up against the slopes of Table Mountain. In the early 18th century, thousands of slaves from Java, Ceylon and other Far Eastern regions were brought to Cape Town.

After slavery was abolished, their descendants, known as the Cape Malay’s, settled here. Our route then leads us to Kloof Nek and the magnificent Table Mountain. We'll ascend to the top [weather permitting] by the new revolving cable car. Here, we'll see wild flowers and the famous silver tree, and marvel at a birds-eye view of the city and its beaches. On a clear day it is even possible to see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on one side and Cape Point on the other. Descend from the Upper Cableway station to your awaiting coach and then proceed around Table Bay to the Milnerton Lighthouse. From here we can see Table Mountain from the same perspective as the early did when they sailed into Table Bay.

Half Day Cultural Tour

Our first call is the haunting District Six Museum, named for the sixth municipal district of Cape Town. Here we'll learn how a once-bustling community was transformed to a desolate wasteland by the Group Areas Act, designed to ensure racial segregation. After the apartheid government decreed District Six a white group area, over 60, 000 families were forcibly removed between 1966 and 1982, and their properties bulldozed. The area never recovered, and the museum speaks eloquently of the human toll.

Many of those evacuated from District Six were moved to segregated townships, and we will head next to Langa, the oldest existing black township in the Western Cape. Here, we'll visit the children at the Chris Hani Literacy School and see first hand the government's efforts to help the community. Later, try some traditional African sorghum beer at a township tavern.
