Tours and Trips from Cape Town
Table Mountain & Lions Head
The best way to catch a view of Cape Town without being on a plane or celebrating a skydive is to climb up Table Mountain! It offers magnificent views of the Cape and the Table Bay with Robben Island and is one of the best spots to enjoy a sundowner. Alternatively you can climb up Lions Head or drive up Signal Hill to catch good views.
Robben Island is famous for Nelson Mandela having spent half a lifetime as a prisoner of the apartheid government there. Today Robben Island is a museum definitley worth a visit. Tours are guided by former prisoners.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
One of the routes to table mountain start at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the green oasis of the city. Find more plants in this park than in whole Europe and enjoy them while listening to an open air concert. They take place every Sunday afternoon during the summer season. Many Capetonians visit the park to enjoy nature, music or simply the atmosphere while having a picnic.
Castle of Good Hope
Visit the Castle of Good Hope, one of the great museums or pass by the Bo Kaap, which is one of the oldest and definitely the most colourful part of Cape Town.
Victoria & Alfred Waterfront
Enjoy shopping? At the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront you can definitely shop 'till you drop. It also offers a lush atmosphere at the harbour and many options for great food. The ferries to Robben Island also start from here.
Camps Bay & Clifton
If you are tired of shopping, just take a short drive to the beaches of the city at Camps Bay or Clifton to relax under the African sun and to enjoy a cocktail at one of the hip Bars at the promenade.
Cape of Good Hope & the Cape Peninsula
A trip to the Cape of Good Hope is top of the list. On your way to the Cape pass by Boulders Beach, where hundreds of African penguins breed, swim and simply enjoy their lives. Very cute! At the Cape of Good Hope National Park you meet the first baboons - attention they are dangerous - and some more African animals like ostriches or mountain zebras.
Hout Bay & the Chapman's Peak Drive
On your way back to Cape Town pass Hout Bay. It's highly recommended to spend some money at the toll gate of the Chapman's Peak Drive - one of the most famous pass roads in the world - to catch fabulous views of the coastline and the sea.
The best wines of South Africa grow in Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek. The area is simply known as the Winelands. Enjoy tastings or simply visit in the great atmosphere of old wine estates in historic towns surrounded by beautiful mountains.
Hermanus is the place to be for whale watching! Every year from July to November the Southern Right Whales come here to breed and raise their cubs. This all just a stone throw off the beach. Get out your camera!
Aquila Game Reserve
The private game reserve of Aquila is situated in the Cederberg Mountains, a two hours drive from Cape Town. In the beautiful scenery watch giraffes, rhinos, lions, antelopes or buffalos just to name a few. A perfect option for those who want to do a safari but lack time to visit the Kruger Park.
Apart from game viewing the Cederbergs have much more to offer. It is a hikers and rockclimbers paradise. Clanwilliam is a small town in the area and the home of the well known Rooibos tea, which indigenously only grows here.
