  • Cape Town, known as the “Mother City” is widely described as one of the world’s most desirable and beautiful destinations and is cradled by the natural presence of Table Mountain and forms a backdrop to a land so lovely that it appears to be a fantasy landscape. The beauty of the vineyards in Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek entices visitors to taste the world class wines and cuisine.
  • The Cape Peninsula Tour includes a tour of the majestic coastline which offers drama worthy of being called “Nature’s Greatest Show”. Witness the union of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans. Following the coastline, you will return via the Penguin Colony at the Boulders Beach and Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens for a short walking tour of the beautiful gardens.
  • One of the new Seven Wonders of the World, Table Mountain is Cape Town’s centerpiece. A trip on the cable car up to the top of Table Mountain allows you to see the views of Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned for 27 Years and the beautiful Atlantic seaboard coastline.
