Starting your day with the rising sun, kayak along the Atlantic Seaboard with spectacular views back over the Mother City giving a unique perspective on the city before your visit to the top of Table Mountain in the rotating cable car, leaving the crowds to get your bearing of the city from its highest point. Taking in the stories of the apartheid era struggles to the founding of a new democracy, wildlife conservation and more.
There is no better way to really immerse yourself in a destination than to exit the vehicle and explore the great outdoors. Today you will take to the water, cruise on two wheels, explore on foot and make you way up to the top of the Iconic Table Mountain ending with spectacular views overlooking the dynamic city of Cape Town.
We start the day like a true local, by making our way to the bustling Sea Point Promenade for an active morning as we climb onto double kayaks and paddle along the stunning Atlantic Sea Board coastline. Dolphins, seals, penguins, sunfish, and occasionally whales frequent the Cape Town waters.
We then continue by boarding retro tandem bikes and cruising along the iconic Sea Point Promenade. Soaking up the atmosphere, the ever-fascinating daily life of this buzzing stretch of urban coastline. We’ll take a look at the local art installations as we go, Cape Town’s artistic diversity and talent are evident at each turn – artists have tackled topics ranging from Rhino Conservation to the historic years which Nelson Mandela spent on Robben Island, just across the waters. We'll enjoy a fresh coffee and home-baked treats which revive the body before we head back to the vehicle.
Continue through the inner city, soaking up the magical vibe of Cape Town, through a combination of tales of the past juxtaposed with modern-day culture, and meet some of the absorbing communities which form the town’s vital building blocks. Focusing on food, design, arts, and crafts we uncover a selection of historical sites, such as Company’s Garden, Green Market Square, and St George’s Cathedral - buildings and monuments which stood as the backdrop for memorable icons who changed the world. Depending on your interests, touch on the fascinating and controversial politics that have shaped the city - delving into recollections of the once-vibrant District 6 community or perhaps the occasion where Mandela made his first free speech.
For lunch, we head to the vibrant Bree Street, known for its gastronomic delights on offer, for a well-deserved lunch at one of the local restaurants or cafes.
Your ascending cable car reveals increasingly breath-taking views over the city and an endless sea until you stand atop iconic Table Mountain. Leave the noise behind and hike away from the crowds, keeping watch for wildlife and rare plants - if you can tear your eyes from the vistas. Enjoy the fauna and flora and the breath-taking views on your way to the top and once you reach the peak, take in the 360-degree views while tracking Dassies (Mountain Rock Rabbits) that can often be spotted on the table top. On top of Table Mountain, we will take a short hike away from the crowds whilst our guide brings alive the history of Cape Town combining the elevated view over the city with turn of the century photographs to highlight the changes of the city.
Reward your taste buds with a decadent treat and enjoy a delicious artisanal chocolate before a cheeky gin in a hidden bar behind the chocolate shop, where you can enjoy a refreshing concoction!
