Cape Town and Dinokeng Game Reserve – Air Inclusive - 9 Days

Cape Town and Dinokeng Game Reserve – Air Inclusive

Spend four nights in the beautiful city of Cape Town and a two-night stay on safari in the Big 5 malaria-free Dinokeng Game Reserve.

While wildlife safaris are reason enough to visit this exquisite country, South Africa offers even more to see and do. For one, the city of Cape Town is a jewel that is well worth visiting. Set against the iconic Table Mountain, Cape Town offers lots to explore, including the V&A Waterfront, Chapman’s Peak, Boulders Penguin Colony and several beautiful beaches — just to give you an idea. Not to mention the delicious food and fabulous shopping, which can all be enjoyed at a favorable exchange rate.  Some of the biggest attractions in the Western Cape are the towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek.  Boasting some of the best wine tours in the world, they offer picturesque vineyards, fantastic art galleries and gourmet food.  Furthermore, South Africans are some of the most upbeat, welcoming and humorous people you’ll ever encounter. You will be exposed to different cultures, languages and traditions that will certainly enhance your experience.

With so much diversity, South Africa has something for everyone to enjoy!

Day 3
CAPE TOWN

After breakfast you will be met and depart for your full-day tour of the Cape Peninsula. Depart the hotel and flank the colder Atlantic ocean en route to Hout Bay. Once a fishing community, and now one of the most popular residential areas, the harbor still has a charm of days gone by. For the not so adventurous, the fish market “Mariners Wharf” is a must. The tour now continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive – if open, with a 200 meter drop on one side and a 200 meter rise on the other, as you make your way south, following the Atlantic Ocean until you reach Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, Sir Francis Drake the Explorer once called it “the fairest Cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the Globe”. And rightly so, it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa. Our optional lunch stop today is at the Fish Hoek Galley. We pass the naval base of Simonstown as we continue along the Indian Ocean, en route to see the Jackass penguin colony which has become well established at Boulders Beach near Simonstown. Our last stop of the day is at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (optional), home of some 3 500 species of Southern African fauna and flora. We return to the hotel in the late afternoon, having seen some of the best the Cape has to offer.
