Wild Life Africa 8 Nights/9 Days

Wild Life Africa 8 Nights/9 Days

Tours Details

Cape Town knows how to wow first-time visitors, the endearing shapes of the Table Mountain chain soaring above the city. On one side is the Atlantic Ocean, shimmering blue and counting down the hours until another evocative sunset. On the other are rolling mountains and valleys. It’s Africa’s finest city; packed with attractions, oozing color, yet gently encased in a relaxed atmosphere. After landing at Johannesburg International Airport, you’ll continue on a domestic flight to Cape Town where you’ll be met and transferred to the Commodore Hotel. You’ll enjoy four nights in Cape Town, and four days that explore the very best of this majestic city. The views start from your hotel, the Commodore neatly situated in the heart of Cape Town’s Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Look one way for a stark beautiful mountain, and then turn around for the wonderful harbor and the endless ocean views. The Waterfront is the city’s most vibrant upscale area, full of sailing ships, quaint steak restaurants, and the smells of fresh seafood. It’s both a relaxed and a vibrant place to spend an evening, and the sunset views are unrivaled. Spacious luxury and tranquility make the Commodore one of Cape Town’s very best hotels, and it offers a variety of piano bars, indulgent restaurants, and opulent lounges.

A dramatic road clings to the mountain, dancing along the coastline to the very southwestern tip of Africa. It’s only a 40 mile journey, but today’s Cape Peninsula day trip reveals one of the continent’s most beautiful landscapes. Pristine beaches pass by the window as the road winds down the Table Mountain chain. Go slow and savor the countless lookout points, secluded bays and old fishing villages standing in the shade of the peaks. Stop in Hout Bay for some of the country’s best fish and chips, and enjoy a glimpse of its flourishing crayfish industry. If there’s time, you can go searching for whales and seals on a boat cruise from here. Then watch the settlements disappear as you cross the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, winding ever southwards until you reach the Cape Point lighthouse. Gaze out onto the ocean. Behind the horizon the next landmass is Antarctica, so prepare yourself for a feeling of being on the edge of the world. You’ll take an alternative road back to Cape Town, first descending through fields of yellow flowers and zebra inhabited plains. Now, what’s that faintly peculiar smell? And those strange yelping noises ? A massive colony of jackass penguins live on Boulders Beach; their waddling antics available for all to see. Mating couples can be found beneath bushes; others are diving off the rocks, and many are just standing in the sand, gently rocking side to side like only a penguin knows how. If you’re lucky, you can be seated on the beach and the penguins will be tottering and wobbling just a few meters away. Simon’s Town completes your tour, a colonial gem that seems relatively unchanged since the 19th century.

Today is about Cape Town’s two most famous attractions. Robben Island has an eerie feel, whispers and secrets left behind in its soil, memories etched into the barren walls of the prison. Nelson Mandela spent 18 years incarcerated here in isolation. He’s just the pinnacle of a long line of political prisoners who turned this hell-hole into a triumph of human spirit over adversity. Ex inmates conduct the tours, offering thought provoking stories to accompany the poignant sights. Ask questions because these old prisoners are keen to share experiences. You get a real feeling for the institutional brutality and prejudice that used to hang in the air. But a trip to Robben Island imbues everyone with even greater respect for Mandela and his counterparts, in particular, their dedication to reconciliation after apartheid. Reaching Robben Island involves a short boat trip from the jetty at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. Table Mountain fills your afternoon, the iconic Cape Town landmark offering unforgettable views. It’s a difficult and steep 90 minute hike to the summit. Fortunately, the journey can also be made in a revolving cable car. Easy walking trails cover the broad summit, allowing you to explore different viewpoints and take in a full 360º adoration of the landscape. Gaze south for an aerial view of the Cape Peninsula that you explored yesterday. Look out west for the Atlantic Ocean and its line of sandy beaches. The east brings green valleys and mountain passes. And standing beneath your eyes is Cape Town; pick out the waterfront and harbor, watch the highways cut across the city, and admire the two sister peaks: Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head. A waterfall of cloud often descends over Table Mountain in late afternoon, blocking the views but looking majestic from below. If the weather isn’t on your side, don’t worry, the mountain is almost always clear in the mornings, so you have time to savor it all tomorrow.

South Africa’s Mother City could take up weeks on a travel itinerary. On your final day you can choose from an eclectic blend of attractions and experiences. Take a wine tour and indulge in the Cape Winelands, an area of lush valleys that teem with cute farmhouses and endless vineyards. Wander through the city’s vivid streets and be shocked by the uninhibited use of color, like the terraced houses of Bo Kaap, the stalls of atmospheric street markets, or the tans of local Capetonians on Camps Bay beach. As always, a priceless sunset and wonderful dining experiences fill your evening.

The 5-star Michelangelo Hotel is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World, and its sumptuous interiors offer a real throwback to Renaissance elegance. Every corridor screams “wow,” each room is a blueprint for luxury accommodation, and the graceful lobbies are as beautiful as anything on the continent. You’ll be driven to the Cape Town airport for your Johannesburg bound flight, and will be transferred to this signature hotel. Situated in the exclusive business district of Sandton, and gazing out over Mandela Square, you’ll have a day of indulging in old world luxury. Sandton reveals the energetic savvy hub of South Africa. It’s also possible to explore more of Johannesburg, like the Soweto township or the Cradle of Humankind.
