HIGHLIGHTS

DISCOVER CAPE TOWN

Table Mountain National Park defines the city. The flat-topped mountain is the headline act, but there are many other equally gorgeous natural landscapes within the park’s extensive boundaries. Cultivated areas, such as the historic Company’s Garden, Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden and Green Point Urban Park, also make exploring the city a pleasure. Follow the lead of locals by taking full advantage of the abundant outdoor space: learn to surf; go hiking or mountain biking; tandem-paraglide off Lion’s Head; abseil off the top of Table Mountain – just a few of the many activities on offer.

Your Itinerary

DAY 1: GET A GLIMPSE OF DOLPHINS, WHALES AND PENGUINS

Explore the fresh movements of the Atlantic Ocean, encounter the active marine life, and possibly catch a glimpse of some local dolphins, whales, seals, penguins, and sunfish. With mountains as a backdrop, experience a unique perspective in Cape Town.

DAY 2: LIONS HEAD SUNSET HIKE

Embark on the route to the summit, climbing 400 meters along the steep and rocky path. Keeping a slow and steady pace, take time to enjoy the views and photo opportunities en route. Enjoy views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean at the summit with snacks and coffee provided before heading back down the mountain to the meeting point.

DAY 3 & 4: TWO DAY TOUR OF THE AQUILA GAME RESERVE PARK

Arrive at the reserve and enjoy lunch and check in before leaving for your exciting safari. The safari is led by an experienced guide who will share inside stories and facts about your surroundings.

During the safari, you’ll have the extraordinary chance to see all Big 5: lions, leopards, rhinos, elephants, and buffalo. Spot giraffes, blesbok, black and blue wildebeest, zebras, springbok, gemsbok, klipspringers, duikers, gray buck, steenbok, ostriches, baboons, caracals, foxes, jackals, leopards and 172 species of birds, including the black eagle.

THE ULTIMATE SAFARI LUXURY EXPERIENCE

After the safari, rest before enjoying a complimentary dinner. On the second day, you will be able to enjoy another game drive and complimentary buffet meals. After the game drive on day 2, you will make your way back to Cape Town.

DAY 5: UNWIND BY THE POOL

Today is yours to spend at your own leisure. There are plenty of sights to explore in this region. Your guide will be full of recommendations – but you could equally take this opportunity to unwind by the pool (guilt-free) or maybe catch up on your favourite show on Netflix.

DAY 6: EXPLORE THE BEAUTIFUL ROBBEN ISLAND

Providing the weather is on your side, this morning will see you head over to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela was held prisoner. Here, you’ll learn about the island’s history, with a former political prisoner to talk you through the experience. After your boat trip back to Cape Town, you’ll go to Stellenbosch, known for its mountainous nature reserves and famous vineyards. The rest of the afternoon is yours to explore this charming university town at leisure. Our suggestion? Settle into your new surroundings with a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon.

DAY 7: PUT YOUR FEAR ASIDE AND DIVE WITH THE SHARKS

Enjoy unspoilt sea views with your complimentary continental breakfast during the safety briefing. Get kitted up in your 5mm wetsuits while still on land and head out to Shark Alley on Megalodon. Once anchored, the sharks are lured by bait line to the cage. Viewing from the deck of the boat is almost as exciting as getting into the cage for an unforgettable close encounter. Approximately 3 hours at sea allows for more than one dive.

DAY 8: SUNSET CHAMPAGNE CRUISE AND THREE COURSE DINNER

Cruise and dine on the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. With the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the majestic Table Mountain range, this is certainly a must-do cruise for locals and tourists alike. You’ll also get a unique view of the coast of Cape Town from the sea while relaxing and sipping on local sparkling wine.

DAY 9: STELLENBOSCH WINELANDS TOUR

Get an in-depth look at the history and production of the famous South African wines on this YOURISM EATS EXPERIENCE tour and even get the chance to bottle your own unique wine. Marvel at the panoramic views of Simonsberg mountains and vineyards. Develop your winemaking skills as you create your own unique blend to take home.

DAY 10: TO PIMP LIKE A BUTTERFLYR

Create memories for a lifetime as you fly effortlessly in a tandem paraglider over Cape Town and land next to the ocean. Sometimes you will need to run a bit before flying, but this is easy and your well-trained and experienced assistants will ensure a smooth takeoff. After the initial buzz of the takeoff, you can settle comfortably into the harness and enjoy the ride. It really is like flying like a bird: come see for yourself.
