  • Cape Town: Waterfront and Sunset Champagne Cruise

    1. Cape Town: Waterfront and Sunset Champagne Cruise

    Cape Town has one of the best locations for watching the sun go down from the water. With the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the majestic Table Mountain range, this is certainly a "must-do" cruise for locals and tourists alike. You'll also get a unique view of the coast of Cape Town from the sea while relaxing and sipping on local sparkling wine! The sailboats Esperance and Serenity One follow the wind for this cruise, and therefore the destination is dependent on the weather at the time of the cruise. Your captain will let you know before departure your expected direction, but typical Cape Town summer wind blows from the southeast. First, you'll leave the harbor and sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton Lighthouse, returning to the protection of the Granger Bay in the lee of Table Mountain to watch the sun set, and then motor back to the waterfront. In the winter months, with t...

    Beautiful experience and service was awesome, oooh the choice of music made it an experience not to forget

  • Cape Town: Lion's Head Sunrise or Sunset Hike

    3. Cape Town: Lion's Head Sunrise or Sunset Hike

    Meet your guide at the Lion's Head Hike - Starting Point. There is parking along Signal Hill Road if you arriving by car. Embark on the route to the summit, climbing 400 meters along the steep and rocky path. Keeping a slow and steady pace, take time to enjoy the views and photo opportunities en route. Enjoy views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean at the summit with snacks and coffee provided before heading back down the mountain to the meeting point.

    It was realllllly windy but Kyle assured it would be safe, just a bit challenging. I was a bit nervous but I’m so glad I went, it was FANTASTIC. Expect some fairly strenuous climbing but nothing anyone with a normal level of fitness can’t handle. The views all the way up are amazing but nothing beats the view from the top - absolutely breathtaking. Kyle was a very friendly guide who made us feel safe. The rooibos tea and snacks in the cafe were a great touch.

  • Cape Town: Lion's Head Sunset Hike

    7. Cape Town: Lion's Head Sunset Hike

    This is a wonderful hike for families, as well as for couples, as the sunset is incredibly romantic from the top of Lions Head. View the Cape from 670 meters with panoramic views of the city, Table Mountain, Robben Island, and the beaches below including Camps Bay and Sea Point.  There are two paths that can be taken to the summit: the adventurous path using the staples and chains, or the easier route that avoids them. This hike is very popular all year round especially when the moon is full. Hike down almost with no extra torchlight, the moon can be so bright. If the moon isn't full when you tour, grab a head torch and wind breaker and head off. You are able to do a sunrise hike to the top, a day hike or even a sunset hike, according to your preference.

    Lions Head hike with Lynette. She was really great and told us lots of interesting facts. I would totally recommend this trip.
