Airport / V&A Waterfront (Cape Penninsula) – 4 Nights:
At the foot of Africa, between the blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and the warmer surf of the Indian Ocean, lies a piece of paradise with a natural beauty equal to none. Sandy shores, mountain peaks, forests and dunes permeate this diverse southern wonder-world, which has been enticing visitors since the first seafarers visited it and aptly named it ‘the fairest cape in the whole circumference of the earth’.
Cape Town is without doubt one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. Blending the old with the new, it has a relaxed, almost continental atmosphere. The influence of early Dutch settlers in 1652, Malay slaves and British rulers have created a rich tapestry of culture not found anywhere else.
