Itinerary

Day 1: Table Mountain, Bo Kaap and Robben Island

Stop At: Table Mountain National Park 8001 South Africa
We start our day by visiting Table Mountain via the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway. Table Mountain is one of the most recognizable mountains in the world and was recently voted one of the New Seven Wonders of Nature. The crown jewel in the Cape Floral Region and home to an incredible diversity of endemic species. We will do a very easy 45 minute hike on the mountain while we enjoy the views of the peninsula and the splendor of nature. Fantastic opportunities to take memorable photographs.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Signal Hill, Cape Town Central 8001 South Africa
We drive via Lion's Head to Signal Hill and enjoy the vistas of Table Bay, the City and the Atlantic seabord. Lion's Head is situated between Table Mountain and Signal Hill. Lion's Head peaks at 669 metres above sea level. The peak forms part of a dramatic backdrop to the city of Cape Town and is part of the Table Mountain National Park.Signal Hill or Lion's Rump, is a landmark flat-topped hill next to Lion's Head and Table Mountain.Make use of the oppotunity to take a beautiful photo of Table Mountain from Signal Hill. Signal Hill is known for the Noon Gun. The gun was fired for the first time in 1806. It was used as a signal (hence Signal Hill) to ships in Table Bay. These are the oldest guns in daily use in the world. The noon gun has been one constant in Cape Town’s colourful and ever-changing history, with the tradition surviving colonial occupations, wars, and apartheid. Signal Hill is also one of the launch sites for paragliding in Cape town. When conditions allow, there are few things as memorable as soaring over the city, drifting on the thermal air currents and admiring the spectacular sea and mountain views, before landing in Sea Point or Camps Bay.Watch the paragliders launch if the conditions permit or if you are brave enough you can do an optional tandem flight with one of the many professional pilots.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Bo-Kaap, Bo-Kaap, Western Cape
We visit the historic Bo Kaap also known as the Malay Quarter where freed slaves settled after the abolishment of slavery in 1834. These brightly painted houses are one of the most photographed areas in Cape Town. In the 1700s, political exiles, slaves and convicts were sent to the Cape by the Dutch from India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and the Indonesian Archipelago. Although not technically correct, these individuals and their descendants became known as Cape Malays. Many of them eventually settled in the Bo Kaap.
The Bo-Kaap is a unique part of old Cape Town. It is situated above the central business district of the city. It is a small residential area, less than two kilometres in length and less than half a kilometre at its widest point.
Most of the Bo-Kaap was built between 1760 and 1840. It is comprised of four areas: the Malay Quarter, Stadzicht, Schotsche Kloof and Schoone Kloof. The precise boundaries of each area are unclear.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Robben Island Museum, Cape Town Central 7400 South Africa
We stop for lunch at the V&A Waterfront where you will be spoiled for choice by the many restaurants to choose from. After lunch the ferry to Robben Island will depart at 13h00.
Robben Island is situated 6.9 kilometres west of the coast of Bloubergstrand. The name is Dutch for "seal island." The island is roughly oval in shape, 3.3 km in length, and 1.9 km wide, a total area of 5.08 km².
During apartheid many Black people were kept on Robben Island as political prisoners including former President Nelson Mandela. The prison internationally notorious for its harsh conditions and when the political prisoners of the apartheid government were released it became a symbol of the strength of the human spirit.
Robben Island was declared a World Heritage Site because the buildings on the island are a reminder of its sad history and because the same buildings also show the power of the human spirit, freedom and the victory of democracy over oppression.The visit to Robben Island will take four hours.

Stop At: Cape Point Nature Reserve, Cape Town Central South Africa
Named the ‘Cape of Storms’ by Bartolomeu Dias in 1488; the ‘Point’ was treated with respect by sailors for centuries. By day, it was a navigational landmark and by night, and in fog, it was a menace beset by violent storms and dangerous rocks that over the centuries littered shipwrecks around the coastline.
In 1859 the first lighthouse was completed; it still stands at 238 metres above sea-level on the highest section of the peak and is now used as the centralised monitoring point for all the lighthouses on the coast of South Africa. Access to this historical building is by an exhilarating three-minute ride in the wheelchair-accessible Flying Dutchman funicular that transfers visitors from the lower station at 127 metres above sea-level, to the upper station.

Cape Point is in the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve within Table Mountain National Park, which forms part of the Cape Floral Region, a World Heritage Site. It includes the majestic Table Mountain chain, which stretches from Signal Hill to Cape Point, and the coastlines of the Cape Peninsula. This narrow stretch of land, dotted with beautiful valleys, bays and beaches, contains a mix of extraordinarily diverse and unique fauna and flora.

Stop At: Boulders Beach Penguin Colony, Simon's Town 7995 South Africa
The beautiful Boulders Beach is one of Cape Town’s most visited beaches and the only place in the world where you get close to African Penguins.In 1982 a couple of these little crowd-pleasers settled on the soft white sand between the large granite boulders that protect the beach from wind and large, stormy waves, and currently the population is estimated between 2,000 and 3,000 birds. Sadly the African Penguin has been classified as an endangered species, due to things like over-fishing, habitat destruction, pollution, and irresponsible tourism activities, and the Boulders Beach colony has also felt the effect, with numbers dwindling over the last couple of years.

Thankfully, Boulders and its surrounding beaches now form part of the Table Mountain National Park Marine Protected Area, thus ensuring the beaches are safe and clean, and the penguins protected.
Duration: 1 hour
