The city offers many different experiences, and you can decide how to enjoy each one. Sticking with an itinerary and taking your touring points from a brochure is a good place to start. However, give yourself a chance to explore Cape Town on your own time, and create your own adventures.
- Let Cape Town Day Tours be your guide. The locals know where to find the city's best culinary and sightseeing treasures.
- Hop a bus or train for your own tour. Public transportation is an affordable way to see the sights.
- Splurge on an aerial view. A helicopter tour offers a breathtaking perspective of the city.
- Trust your own two feet. Take the time to get to know the city, and discover its charms.
Cape Town thrives in the center of an incredibly diverse ecosystem. A safari bus trip through the Aquila Game Reserve is your opportunity to be on the lookout for African elephants, Cape buffalo and endangered snow leopards. Hiking through Table Mountain National Park lifts you out of the city and into the company of zebras, baboons and more than 250 species of birds. The incredible Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden, like Cape Town itself, is a world-class destination for nature lovers.
If you crave heart-stopping action, Cape Town delivers with tours that take you where the Great Whites swim. Spend a day cage diving with the sharks off the coast, and you'll leave with a lifetime of memories and stories to tell. If you'd rather not swim with the fish, enjoy them from the shore. Cape Town is one of the few areas in the world that offers spectacular whale watching from land, and boating excursions provide an even closer view.
