Sample Cape Town, Zulus & Pearls

Day 1: Cape Town

Arrive in Cape Town. Transfer to Vineyard Hotel for 4 nights, BB

Cape Town is one of the most beautifully situated cities in the world. Cradled by Table Mountain, it has immense charm and historical interest whilst its unique cultural blend; part African, part European and part Asian, makes for a cosmopolitan dining experience. Take the cable car or walk up Table Mountain, visit the colourful Malay quarter or meander through the wonderful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Browse through the vibrant Greenmarket Square, take a boat trip to Robben Island or simply relax on the beach.

Days 2 - 4: Cape Town

Days at leisure to explore Cape Town

Currently your days are at leisure. We have not included any touring as some people will want to hire a rental car for complete flexibility, others will want to enjoy some private touring and yet others may want to do some soft adventure activities or fun scheduled tours. We can discuss all the options with you.

A visit to the top of Table Mountain is a must – perhaps allow enough time to do a short hike on the mountain to enjoy the tranquility & fynbos mountain vegetation. If you like shopping and experiencing the local scene, there are some vibrant street markets at Greenmarket Square and St Georges Mall with lots of alfresco cafes nearby.

We can arrange some great tours for you – take the boat cruise to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated, a walking or cycling tour of the city, visit the Cape Winelands with wine-tasting at boutique wine estates, or enjoy a trip to the Cape Peninsula, perhaps with some optional cycling if you like to keep active.
