Cape Town Tour
The following is an example of a typical accessible Cape Town tour, but Enable Holidays is happy to organise variations to suit all travellers.
B = Breakfast included
D = Dinner included
You will be collected from Cape Town International Airport and taken by adapted transfer to a 4* hotel, for three nights. Rest up for the rest of the day, ready for the start of the tour the following morning.
For the first day of the tour proper, take a visit to the world-famous Cape of Good Hope Reserve, with its multitude of unique wildlife including zebra, varied antelopes, African penguins and even chacma baboons, if you are lucky!
The area throngs with activities for both active visitors wishing to hike, surf, angle or cycle, as well as those who prefer to simply laze on the picture-perfect beach or indulge in a tasty picnic.
Lunch in the area on own account is followed by a ride in the funicular railway cable car to the old lighthouse, before travelling back to the hotel via Chapman’s Peak drive, the famously scenic drive affectionately nicknamed “Chappies” by locals. During this beautiful journey, mountains tower above the road while dramatic cliffs slant downwards and away into the crystalline South Atlantic Ocean below.
Today, take a trip to Table Mountain, scaling its height via cable car before gazing in awe at the 360 degree views across Table Bay, the Cape Flats, and the range of broad peaks that compose the mountain itself. From these exciting, rocky heights, you will then descend into the lush green of the region’s winelands. Stellenbosch is the most famous wine area in South Africa, the university town of which is filled with contemporary cafes and bars but which has retained much of its original architecture, and dates back to 1679. Lunch here on own account before breezing back to the hotel and enjoying the evening at leisure.
Take the beach-and-lagoon-bordered Garden Route today, surrounded by rolling jade hills, before reaching the Breede River Valley. This relatively flat visiting point is the largest fruit- and wine-producing valley in the Western Cape, and serves as a rewarding stop before passing the Cogman’s Kloof Pass into the fertile valley of the Klein Karoo. The Klein Karoo is not a precisely defined region, and its wild and sprawling semi-desert stretches are populated most commonly by ostriches, sheep and tumbleweed. Evening spent at leisure in Calitzdorp, where the hot, sunny weather helps produce high-quality wine.
Travel to the ostrich capital of the world – Oudtshoorn – and visit a wildlife ranch. After lunch, tour the ostrich farm and learn more about these fascinating creatures, before heading out into a private game reserve. After an afternoon of animal-spotting, enjoy star gazing with an expert, weather permitting, followed by the unique experience of a night spent in a luxury tented camp.
B, L, D
Today you will once again pass down the gorgeous Garden Route and drive to the exact 400km waypoint between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth: Mossel Bay, which straddles the green areas and the semi-desert parts of the region. This bay is renowned for offering numberless examples of local fauna and is a delight for visitors who wish to see some of South Africa’s most famous furry residents, as well as those that dip and dance in the sea. In the afternoon, visit the Dias Maritime Museum, which displays objects of oceanic interest (including 467kg great white shark!) and is packed with history.
Today you will enjoy a tour of the nearby township, led by a local guide, with the emphasis placed on meeting interesting characters from different walks of South African life. Overnight in the Heidelberg area at a Guest Farm.
After a morning tour of the farm – as long as the farmer is not harvesting – you will have lunch en route to Cape Town International Airport on own account and visit a berry farm on the way, before waving goodbye to the staggering beauty of South Africa.
