Cape Town is one of the most beautiful cities in the world.  Table Mountain dominates the landscape and the Atlantic Ocean provides a scenic backdrop.  Your Cape Town adventure begins with Table Mountain. This iconic mountain provides a prominent landmark in the city. Take a cable car to the top for superb views. Visit Boulders Beach, home to a breeding colony of over 2000 endangered African penguins.

Extend your stay

There is so much to see and see in Cape Town. Why not extend your trip and visit Robben Island or take a whale watching cruise. Speak to one of our Travel Specialists for more information.

This holiday can also be easily combined with St Helena, Kruger and Victoria Falls to allow you to see all the highlights of Southern Africa in one trip. Please contact us for more information.

Gaining a birds eye view of the beautiful Cape Town is one of the best things I have experienced. The helicopter takes off from the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront before circling out past Table Mountain. From this height you gain a real understanding of the layout of the city dominated by Table Mountain, Lions Head and signal hill. On a clear day you can see Robben Island and well into the winelands. Great for those short on time and looking for a memorable highlight.
