Welcome to Cape Town South Africa

THE CAPE TOWN TOUR: CITY

Cape Town is South Africa's oldest city and therefore fondly called our 'Mother City'. Our city's rich history embraces many different peoples and cultures from various parts of the world, which, over centuries, have blended into an interesting and diverse population. To get a glimpse of this richness, a tour of the city and its historic buildings, architecture and gardens is highly recommended. Your tour will not be restricted to the city center and can include destinations such as:

  • the Table Mountain Cableway
  • the V&A Waterfront and the departure point for Robben Island
  • the Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens,
  • the beautiful Scenic Routes along the Atlantic Coast up to Hout Bay
  • and the wine estates of the Constantia Valley and Durbanville

THE CAPE PENINSULA AND CAPE POINT CIRCULAR ROUTE

This tour, which culminates in a visit to the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point, the southernmost tip of the Peninsula, is probably the most popular of all the Cape Town tours on offer locally. Spectacular natural scenery awaits you on the circular route along the Atlantic and False Bay shores of the Peninsula. Highlights include:

  • a visit to a seal colony by boat in Hout Bay,
  • the famous Chapman's Peak Drive and its splendid views,
  • the Cape of Good Hope and Cape Point,
  • the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach

and many more.

SHORT OUTINGS
(Waiting for a flight? – Do you have time to kill?)

No need to waste those last precious hours before flying home. We will act as your personal driver for a short scenic outing, some last minute shopping, look after your luggage, and then drop you off at the airport in time for your flight.

THE CAPE WINELANDS CIRCULAR ROUTE

Beautiful wine estates and Cape Dutch homesteads, against the backdrop of the lovely Western Cape Mountains and historic towns, especially Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, are the main attractions. If on top of that you love to enjoy fantastic wines you just cannot afford to miss this tour. The wine-growing region of the Western Cape stretches far and wide and is often referred to as the Boland (upper country). For practical purposes however, a day tour of the Winelands has to be aimed at a section of the Stellenbosch, Paarl, Franschhoek and Somerset West Region where we visit some of the top Wine Estates of the Western Cape..

COMBINED TOUR OF THE CAPE WINELANDS AND CAPE POINT NATURE RESERVE

This tour offers a combination of attractions on the Cape of Good Hope Circular Route and the Cape Winelands Circular Route, which includes wine tasting and historic Stellenbosch. Perhaps the most time efficient of all the Cape Town Tours on offer but, if you have the time, certainly not a substitute for the individual Peninsula and Winelands tours!

HERMANUS CIRCULAR ROUTE AND WHALE WATCHING

This, the most beautiful scenic coastal drive, is not to be missed. You travel where awesome mountain ranges rise from the rugged eastern shoreline of False Bay and through the many coastal villages. The return trip takes you through beautifully cultivated apple and pear orchards and over two mountains passes.

  • Land based whale watching in Hermanus (boat based if preferred) in season (July to November)
  • a Penguin Colony and Botanical Garden in Betty’s Bay, and
  • wine tasting  in the Hemel and Aarde Valley if time permits.

EASTERN SEABOARD OF FALSE BAY AND THE CAPE WINELANDS

Our own personal favourite – need we say more.   Travel along the spectacular Eastern shore of False Bay and wheat fields of the Overberg, some magnificent mountain passes and the Winelands of the Boland.

  • Rooiels and Betty’s Bay (including the Penguin Colony
  • Franschhoek and Stellenbosch

THE WEST COAST: LANGEBAAN AND SPRING FLOWERS OR THE FOSSIL PARK

On a day tour of the West Coast, one can travel as far north as St Helena Bay and Velddrif. During the spring flower season (normally the second half of August and early September), a visit to the various nature reserves and other areas where an abundance of spring flowers can be enjoyed is simply a must. This aside, the West Coast –with its fishing communities, abundance of interesting little bays and fascinating history and prehistory – makes for a really worthwhile day tour all year-round offering many other attractions such as:

  • One of the richest fossil sites in the world may be visited at the West Coast Fossil Park, where 200 different kinds of fossilised animals, which lived in the area 5 million years ago, have been discovered.
  • Bird watching at Langebaan Lagoon
  • The quaint village of Paternoster
  • Take your postcard perfect picture of Table Mountain from Blouberg Strand

A DAY TRIP TO CAPE AGULHAS: THE SOUTHERN MOST TIP OF AFRICA

The extremities of landmasses have always captured our imagination.  To stand at the southernmost tip of the African continent would certainly rank high within the realm of this sentiment.  Apart from this highlight, the tour takes one over Sir Lowry’s Pass and Houwhoek Pass to Hermanus where, in the whale season (normally July to November), a few moments will be spared for whale watching.  The area has a rich history of maritime hardships, to which the Shipwreck Museum at Bredasdorp bears graphic testimony.  Enjoy a glass of bubbly at the southern most tip of Africa and dip your toes in both the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, followed by lunch at the Light House restaurant .

THE BREEDE RIVER VALLEY (TULBAGH, CERES AND WORCESTER)


Do you wonder what lies behind the beautiful mountains beyond Paarl? Well, nestled between two awesome mountain ranges, you will find the beautiful and fertile Breede River Valley with an abundance of water for agriculture, magnificently cultivated orchards, vineyards and historical towns. Getting there is half the pleasure as the tour takes you along some of the finest historical mountain passes. The tour also offers an opportunity to sample some of the fine wines of the region.

KAROO LANDSCAPE AND
MATJIESFONTEIN

We travel through the scenic Du Toit's Kloof Mountain Pass and the fertile Slanghoek Valley. Then on to the historic Michell's Pass to the town of Ceres and its fertile fruit-growing valley. Soon the abundant orchards give way to the arid landscape of the Karoo (the Khoi word for "land of thirst") where vast open spaces stretch from one far horizon to the other. Experience the solitude and serenity so unique to this semi-desert of South Africa. Enjoy lunch in the historic and quaint little village of Matjiesfontein. The return journey takes us through the Hex River Valley where autumn brings a kaleidoscope of colours to the lush vineyards. In the Breede River Valley we pass the town of Worcester on our way to the Du Toit's Kloof Pass heading back to Cape Town. This more direct return route is also used on the outward journey if insufficient time is available.

PRIVATE GAME RESERVES AND SAFARIS (click for prices)


If you do not have the time to travel to one of Southern Africa's major game parks then do not miss this opportunity. When in Cape Town you will be within easy reach of Fairy Glen, Aquila, Inverdoorn, Buffelsfontein and Sanbona Private Game Reserves. Travelling with us to these reserves you will be on your own private excursion in a comfortable air-conditioned vehicle with the opportunity to stop where you want to. If time allows you may even indulge in some wine tasting on the way back on excursions where this is possible. Though not to be compared with the large game reserves of southern Africa these private reserves offer wonderful game viewing opportunities from safari vehicles. Experienced game rangers share their knowledge and you will have the opportunity to spot the famous Big Five; elephant, rhino, lion, buffalo, leopard and more, such as giraffe, zebra, hippo and many antelope species. After a scrumptious buffet lunch we return to Cape Town, enjoying the lovely country scenery.

SHARK CAGE DIVING OR BOAT BASED WHALE WATCHING: A DAY OUTING TO GANSBAAI (click for prices)

"Few things compare to the adrenalin rush and exhilaration one gets being face to face with a three metre Great White, especially when they curiously cruise right up to the cage and eye you within kissing range."

OVERNIGHT STAY AT SUTHERLAND AND A VISIT TO SALT, THE RENOWNED SOUTH AFRICAN LARGE TELESCOPE (click for prices)

From Matjiesfontein, we head deeper into the Great Karoo for a further 130km to reach the high plateau of the Roggeveld, where the town of Sutherland is situated at an altitude of 1458 metres. Sutherland is the home of SALT, situated even higher, the largest single optical telescope in the southern hemisphere and proudly called "South Africa's Giant Eye". At an altitude of 1759m the atmosphere is thin here, the air is crystal-clear and in this arid region cloud-cover is infrequent. For these reasons this site has gained international status as one of the world's foremost stations for astronomical observation. The onsite guided tour and fascinating observations will leave even the less knowledgeable visitor with new insights, broadening their perspective forever. At very little additional cost, the return journey can be made via the breathtaking Seweweeks Poort and the beautiful Little Karoo.
