The first stop is Table Mountain’s Lower Cableway Station, for a 5-minute revolving cable car ride to the top. We will explore the mountain’s summit and absorb the breath-taking views before descending.
We then return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter, for a walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for ships and locals from the mid-17th century, and now home to the South African Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery and St George’s Cathedral.
Move on to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront to visit the Two Oceans Aquarium – so named because both the Indian and Atlantic oceans wash this southern tip of Africa – which showcases the incredible diversity of marine life found in these waters.
Next, head up to Signal Hill to witness the firing of the Noon Day Gun, Cape Town’s oldest living tradition. After a delicious a la carte lunch we browse one of the local craft centers.
