Overnight travel to Cape Town
Arrive in Cape Town, undeniably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. As you transfer to the hotel, you will see the city's iconic symbol, Table Mountain greeting you in the distance.
This tour allows visitors a unique journey through the history of South Africa, divided into what is referred to as “The Three South Africa’s”. From the monumental turning point in the Birth of South Africa to the now-decaying ruins of Apartheid South Africa to the townships of the New South Africa. This tour is not to be missed during your visit to Cape Town, as you’re given insight into the greatness of Nelson Mandela and what South Africa has achieved ever since the nation took up his challenge to rise above pain and bitterness. Some of the elements of the excursion may vary depending what’s going on in Cape Town on that particular day, but may include a walking tour, visiting a family’s very modest home and being entertained by a choir. You’ll be sure to experience eye-opening encounters, especially when visiting Langa, the oldest black township and Khayelitsa the largest township, where cultural values and personal experiences are exchanged.
While in Cape Town, outdoor enthusiasts will not want to miss the tour to the stunning Cape Peninsula, known for its steep mountains, secluded coves and beautiful pristine beaches. The Cape of Good Hope within Table Mountain National Park is surrounded by a rich biodiversity and is home to at least 250 species of birds as well as antelope, ostrich, and baboons. Walk the rugged cliffs, or, take the famous Flying Dutchman funicular, a beacon for early explorers that climbs uphill to the old lighthouse. Afterward, visit Boulders Beach to see the unique spectacle of penguins waddling freely, and walk through spectacular Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
Depart from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront by ferry across Table Bay to Robben Island, the infamous home to the maximum security prison where Nelson Mandela and others were jailed. You’ll have a chance to visit the prison and explore Murray’s Bay Harbor precinct before returning to the waterfront by ferry. (Ferries depart from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront several times daily, weather permitting.
You’ll have three full days at leisure to explore stunning Cape Town and its environs at your own pace.

Begin your tour with a trip to the Bo-Kaap neighborhood in Cape Town. This area, also called the Malay Quarter, is easily recognizable because of its colorful houses. Next, visit Langa, Cape Town’s oldest formal township, established in 1927. Continue to the Gugulethu township, where you’ll have an opportunity to watch local artists at work. Finally, make for Khayelitsha, the biggest township in all of South Africa, as well as the fastest-growing. After roughly 3.5 hours, you tour concludes with a drop-off at your hotel in Cape Town.
This must-see Cape Peninsula Tour takes the scenic route through Muizenberg along Boyes Drive where you will see the famous colourful beach houses. Continuing on, we will stop off at a shark spotting hut, a picturesque site, where you can view the surfers catching some waves and if you are lucky, maybe even see a whale! The next stop is Simon’s Town to visit the endangered but ever so friendly African Penguins before heading to our private spot for lunch complete with rock pool. (bring your swimwear for a cheeky dip). After dining is entry into the Table Mountain National Park for a short but spectacular hike up to the lighthouse at Cape Point. Next to the Cape of Good Hope, the most south westerly point of Africa, another fabulous photo opportunity! Here you will find some of South Africa’s unique wildlife; view baboons, antelope, ostriches and Dassies in their natural habitat. The route back takes you through the beautiful Chapman’s Peak Drive (when open) and on to Hout Bay for your second last excellent photo opportunity where you can feed and, if brave enough, hug the resident Cape Fur seals. The last leg of the journey is enjoyed with a traditional sun downer through Llandudno, Camp’s Bay and Clifton taking in the spectacular views of beaches opposite the mountains giving you your final opportunity for mesmerizing pictures.
Robben Island—where most of Mandela’s 27-year prison sentence was served—was a place of isolation for nearly 300 years,housing many political prisoners and serving as both a lunatic asylum and leper colony. Today, the island remains a tangible symbol of political freedom and a reminder of the difficult road to South African democracy.
