Overview


Your ascending cable car reveals increasingly breath-taking views over city and an endless sea, until you stand atop iconic Table Mountain. Leave the noise behind and hike away from the crowds, keeping watch for wildlife and rare plants - if you can tear your eyes from the vistas. Alternative, those feeling strong can leave the cable car and crowds behind and hike up Table Mountain (2-2.5hrs hike, depending on fitness levels) for 360° panoramas. Fresh coffee and home baked treats revive the body, before we head back down to sea level and hop on our bikes to cruise the Sea Point Promenade.

Cycling along this buzzing stretch of urban life, we take a look at interactive local art installations. Cape Town’s artistic diversity and talent are so clearly evident in numerous original creations which cover topics from Rhino Conservation to Nelson Mandela’s Robben Island history. Bikes are dropped off at the V & A Waterfront where we explore the Watershed’s quirky craft, design and township art projects, geared towards community upliftment.

This afternoon walk the cobbled streets of the Bo-Kaap with its brightly coloured 17th century houses and (guided by your individual interests) we visit a selection of fascinating historical, artistic or culinary highlights. Touch on politics when you view Parliament and the Company’s Garden or awaken your taste buds with samples from the food artisans in Bree Street. Discover both fine art and street art in Cape Town galleries or perhaps meet trend-setting local fashion designers.

As the day draws to a close, what better way to wrap up than sipping G ‘n T’s in one of Cape Town’s underground gin bars, or savouring cocktails in cool local hang-outs?
