The City Sightseeing bus now offers travellers the opportunity to hop on a tour of Cape Town by night.

Discover Africa Safaris

Celebrating Cape Town’s summer bliss, the newly introduced night tour of the Mother City can be enjoyed from a seat in the iconic open top City Sightseeing bus. 

There’s no better time of year to enjoy an evening tour like this, with Adderley Street’s festive Christmas lights hoisted for the jolly season. The bus route takes advantage of the Cape’s weather and natural attractions and scenic viewpoints. A highlight of the tour includes a stop at Signal Hill where passengers can watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean. Pack a picnic, because at this point you’re able to enjoy a sundowner snack overlooking a slice of Cape Town. Not in the mood for a bite? Just sit back and enjoy the view.

This is a great opportunity for both locals and travellers to soak up the city’s beauty and evening energy on a tour that is the only one of its kind in South Africa. It’s perfect for families, friends, couples and tourists alike. Enjoy!
