Day 2

CAPE TOWN ORIENTATION AND FREE TIME

Cape Town

In what the locals call the ‘Mother City’, we’ll waste no time getting started. For us, there’s no better way to do it than an essential morning orientation tour to really get your bearings. Your Travel Director will paint a vivid picture of each and every spot, from the colourful facades and houses in Bo-Kaap to the lush Company Gardens and the 17th-century Castle of Good Hope. You’ll soon feel like you’re a part of history itself. Standing tall, the main event of today sees us hitting all new heights at you guessed it, Table Mountain via the iconic aerial cable way. As we pause to take in the 360-degree views stretching down the City Bowl, Atlantic Seaboard and beyond you’re sure to hear a collective ‘ahhhh’. With Table Mountain checked off, tailoring your afternoon is up next, with options that are just as iconic as the sights. Choose to take a relaxed e-bike ride along the beach before feeling the sand in your toes at a sunset beach braai (barbeque), or jam your way through a djembe drumming session, re-fuelling over a feast of traditional African treats.
