The Cape Town Adventure is part of our Adventure Experience Series – adventure exactly as it should be experienced. Exploring Cape Town in 8 days and 19 adventurous excursions delights the senses and the soul, supplying a lifetime of fond memories.
Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town is rich in culture, vibrancy, flavour, people, and unique flora and fauna. It’s the most cosmopolitan of all South Africa’s cities. Time spent in Cape Town is framed by the depths of the earth in the Shimansky Diamond Experience, the depths of the ocean at the Two Oceans Aquarium, and by a place of myth and legend – Table Mountain, 3563 feet above sea, one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature it’s visible 150 kms out at sea.
The wildlife and plant life of the Cape is utterly unique. Table Mountain is home to the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, the first of its kind to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the protected domain of the endemic fynbos and proteas. At Duiker Island, over 6000 Cape Fur Seals frolic in icy water, prey to Great White Sharks, while endangered African Penguins make a home for themselves on Boulders Beach. The world’s only trademarked Whale Crier will blow his kelp horn to announce the whales’ arrival at Hermanus, one of the world’s 12 best whale watching-destinations.
The Cape’s history stretches back 300 years. The museums, art galleries, Robben Island – the famous prison which once housed Nelson Mandela, the townships like Khayelitsha, as well as the heart of 17th century Constantia – all testify to the birth of what has become today’s modern Cape Town. City vibes, beautiful rugged mountains, breath-taking scenery, wild oceans, incredible food, shipwrecks, ancient oak tree-lined streets, and the friendliest people on earth, the Cape is unforgettable.
