Catch your breath at the top of Table Mountain and drink in the unbeatable views over Cape Town, nestled snugly into its beautiful harbour on the shore of Table Bay. The hike from the 12 Apostles to Maclear’s Beacon has been well worth it.
Gaze out over the Cape Peninsula coast and the mighty Atlantic swell from Cape Point. There’s a Cape Malay cooking safari to look forward to. Walk in the vineyards of the Stellenbosch winelands – you’ll surely sample the glorious produce! Explore the Tsitsikamma National Park, part of the famous Garden Route. The name means ‘clear water’ in the local dialect, and the dramatic coastline and indigenous forest, waterfalls, streams and rivers live up to the promise.
Tread thoughtfully as you walk the plain of Isandlwana and the town of Dundee. Blood was spilt on these lands in the battles between the Zulus and the British in the 19th century. The Zulus call the Drakensberg Mountains the ‘Barrier of Spears’. Step straight out from the luxury of your hotel and onto the peaks – or just relax and take it easy in style.
