After breakfast meet your driver at 0800hrs and enjoy a Full Day City Tour of Cape Town.
The Mother City is steeped in history, culture and scenic wonders, and offers an abundance of things to see and do. Visit the Castle of Good Hope, built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company. The Castle was developed as a maritime replenishment station, and from 1678 it was the center of civilian, administrative and military life at the Cape until the area grew and operations expanded elsewhere. Today, the Castle is the seat of the military in the Cape, and is open for visitors to explore and learn more about its history.
Wander through the Company Gardens, a large public park and botanical garden set in the heart of Cape Town, home to a rose garden, Japanese garden, fish pond and aviary before heading to Greenmarket square.
Head to the magnificent Table Mountain (weather permitting), or in the event of inclement weather, Signal Hill. You will ascend to the top by the revolving cable car. Here, you will see wild flowers, daisies, silver tree, and marvel at a birds-eye view of the city and its beaches. On a clear day, it is even possible to see Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned.
Descend the mountain and visit the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, wander down a shady pathway into the bowels of the valley, and you might find yourself at the spring where famed 18th century writer and artist Lady Anne Barnard is known to have bathed in the nude. Climb up into the Garden’s higher reaches, and you will tread trails that could call you on towards the breathtaking Skeleton Gorge ravine, Rhodes Memorial, and Constantia Nek.
