Safari Enquiry

Cape Town has so much to offer, from spectacular scenery and mountains soaring above palm-fringed beaches to rolling vineyards, gourmet restaurants, fantastic museums, and a rich cultural heritage.

The city’s magic lies in its diversity. In the space of a single day, you could get a bird’s-eye view of the city from Table Mountain, swim with penguins at Boulders Beach, taste wines at a centuries-old estate, eat at some of the country’s best restaurants, and watch the sunset over the Atlantic Ocean with a chilled cocktail at a beachside bar.
