Day 16 - Cape Town
After your breakfast, you will be collected from your hotel by a representative of Afrogem. Enjoy a short tour of their amazing diamond, tanzanite & gemstone factory, specialising in the rich mineral heritage of the African continent. The tour is approximately 30 – 45 minutes.
A representative from Afrogem will transfer you to the Table Mountain cableway.
You will ascend to the top (weather permitting) by the revolving cable car (tickets included). Here, you will see wildflowers and the famous silver tree, and marvel at a birds-eye view of the city and its beaches. On a cloudless day it is even possible to see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned on one side and Cape Point on the other.
After the trip to Table Mountain – you will make your own way back to the hotel. The taxi service is based at the Cable Way Station and the transport is safe and reliable. Relax and enjoy your day at your leisure and a visit to the V&A Waterfront is recommended. There are many coffee shops, restaurants, and bars, most with spectacular harbour views and setting below Table Mountain.
