Day One

Arrive Cape Town, South Africa

Arrive in Cape Town, a breathtaking harbour city where old and new converge. With its breathtaking location lapped by the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and cradled by towering Table Mountain and Lion’s Head, the city has a warm cultural heart, a thriving restaurant scene, sunny beaches and impressive architecture. You are met and transferred to your luxurious hotel at the Victoria & Albert Waterfront precinct.
Accommodation: One&Only Cape Town/Belmond Mount Nelson Hotel

 

Day Two

Cape Town | Table Mountain and Historic City Sights

Wind your way through the scenic, shrub-dotted landscape to Table Mountain; ascend to its sky-high plateau by cable car (weather permitting) for dazzling views of city and sea. Next, venture to old Cape Town with views of notable buildings, including Groote Kerk (South Africa’s oldest church) and City Hall on the Grand Parade, Cape Town’s largest square. Continue past the pentagonal Castle of Good Hope. Built by the Dutch East India Company as a maritime refreshment station, it later became the centre of military life in the Cape. When available, stop at Streetwires for an artisan visit, where locals come together to craft unique, handmade wire and bead art, now successfully exported to over 15 countries worldwide. After lunch, visit Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden alongside a private local guide. At tonight’s welcome dinner, relax as a resident chef and sommelier guide you through a progressive, contemporary feast.

Day Three

Cape Town | Spectacular Views from Cape Point

Discover Cape Point, the mountainous and scenic promontory at the southwestern tip of the continent. Embark on a journey past the “bikini beaches” at the base of the towering Twelve Apostles Mountains, bucolic Hout Bay with its bustling fishing harbour and over famous Chapman’s Peak. Explore the stunning Cape Peninsula and Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, home to rare bontebok, chacma baboons and several endemic plant species. Ride the “Flying Dutchman” funicular to the great pinnacle at blustery Cape Point, which presides over treacherous reefs, sandy beaches and, from July to November, breathtaking views of Southern right whales. At Boulders Beach, visit a colony of endangered African penguins; accustomed to humans, they provide endless photo opportunities. Spend the remainder of your day at leisure, enjoying your hotel, exploring the city’s harbour front and boutique shops, or dining in one of Cape Town’s world-class restaurants.
