Cape Town Extension Day 1

Day 1: Cape Town, 3 Nights

On arrival into Cape Town, you will be met and transferred to the Camps Bay Retreat in Cape Town. The hotel is a true hidden gem with picturesque views across the Atlantic Ocean and the Twelve Apostles Mountain Range. The rest of the day is spent at leisure for you to relax by one of three swimming pools or explore the wider area.

Included meals: Breakfast


Cape Town Extension Day 2

Day 2: Cape Town Freedom Day

Cape Town is a city calling out to be explored, so why not start the day admiring the vistas from atop Table Mountain. There is also the chance to head out to the south-western tip of South Africa, Cape Point; discover the delightful Cape Winelands or just enjoy the delights of Camps Bay.

Included meals: Breakfast


Cape Town Extension Day 3

Day 3: Cape Town Freedom Day

This is it, your last day in Cape Town to explore at your own pace. With such a rich history, Cape Town still has visible scars from its apartheid days. We suggest a day trip to Robben Island, where Nelson Mandela spent 18 years in prison. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site, you can take a walk through the old prison as well as a bus ride around the island with a fascinating commentary on places of note.

Included meals: Breakfast


Cape Town Extension Day 4

Day 4: Depart Cape Town

Today, we say farewell to Cape Town as we travel to the airport to begin our journey home to the UK. Alternatively if staying in Cape Town pre-tour, you will join your fellow travelling companions and Tour Manager, ready for your adventures ahead.
