cape town

It’s not surprising that Cape Town is such a desirable destination for visitors. As the oldest city in South Africa, it’s rich in culture and history. 

Located on the coast of South Africa’s southern tip, it offers a bountiful list of activities. Ride a cable car to a romantic dinner on top of Table Mountain, skim the shores by boat on a sunset cruise or take in the coast from a helicopter’s vantage point. Go whale watching and even dive with great whites in the infamous Shark Alley. Relax on the pristine bay beaches, enjoy a round of golf at one of the many picturesque courses or learn from a variety of historical and cultural tours. The list of remarkable experiences is truly endless in Cape Town. 


Wine country

While in the Cape Town area, the spectacular mountain scenery, valleys and vineyards of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek are an experience not to be missed. Enjoy wine tours and tasting, dine at world renowned restaurants and stroll through oak lined streets with many antique shops and art galleries. If you want to stay a little longer, unwind in one of the charming Inns the area has to offer. 


Victoria falls

Visit one of the World’s Natural Wonders and most spectacular sights in all of Africa. Enjoy a cocktail on the Zambezi river or lunch in a white canvas tent on Livingstone island before touring the falls from every vantage point. Exciting excursions include walks along the falls, bungee jumping from Victoria Falls Bridge, white water rafting through the rivers below, or a delightful sunset riverboat cruise.
