In recent years, it has been repeatedly voted as one of the top cities to visit in the world as well as one of the most creative cities on the planet.

While Cape Town has loads to do in terms of nature and the outdoors, it also has many historical activities on offer. Robben Island, which is a small island surrounded by rough, cold and shark infested seas was once home to a prison for Apartheid activists such as Noble Peace Prize winner and former South African president, Nelson Mandela. There are daily tours to the island which supplies tourists with an insight into the country’s past and how far our Rainbow nation has come.

Popular things to do in Cape Town include trips to the most South Western tip of Africa, known as Cape Point, where you are taken to view the Cape Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach and then to the Cape Point Nature Reserve where you are able to witness the majestic Atlantic and Indian oceans meet. Wine tasting is another hit amongst tourists that visit the Cape.  The wine region is world renowned, boasting many farms in a close proximity to one another with award winning wines that are available to purchase at a reasonable price.

Review: Whale and Wine Tour

September 5th, 2019|Categories: Cape Town, Day Tours, News, South Africa|0 Comments

We stopped to have different tastings on the way to Hermanus. Every stop was diverse but [...]
