Check into your elegant room and for a stretch of legs, why not take a walk along the Sea Point promenade and feel like a local lapping up the afternoon sun? Overnight at Radisson Blu Le Vendome.
Bring your camera; we’re headed for Cape Point at the south-western tip of the Cape Peninsula for a Springbok Atlas Tours & Safaris Guided Tour!
This scenic full day tour begins with a beautiful drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburb of Camps Bay with its glorious views of the Twelve Apostles, part of the Table Mountain range. We’ll continue to the fishing village of Hout Bay, one of Cape Town’s best-kept secrets. Here there is the option to take a short boat trip to Duiker Island (for own account & time permitting) to view the Cape fur seals that inhabit the island. From Hout Bay we travel to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, comprising over 17 300 acres of indigenous fauna and flora. Here we can see a variety of wildlife that includes baboons, rhebok, Cape mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world’s largest breeding grounds for tortoises. Bird-watchers, too, will find many fine species to observe.
The majestic coastline offers drama worthy of being called “Nature’s Greatest Show”. We’ll be able to see the union of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans (as per legend), and may even feel the brisk wind that is dubbed the “Cape Doctor” for its presumed curative powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, we’ll return to Cape Town by way of Simon’s Town, where we visit the penguin colony at Boulders Beach (for own account), Fish Hoek fishing village and Muizenberg. Before our return to Cape Town, we stop at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens for a short walking tour of the exquisite gardens. Overnight at Radisson Blu Le Vendome. [B]

From there, you will hop back onto your e-bike and head down to the hot and happening Cape Town City Bowl. Your first stop will be the trendy Bree Street where you will be able to sample some amazing South African made cheese. We continue by sampling the finest biltong in town and other goods such as craft beer and fermented Rooibos tea. After getting a glimpse into the Cape Town vibe, get ready for some more as we continue cycling down on our e-bikes towards the atmospheric and busy Greenmarket Square for a chance to do a bit of souvenir shopping.
