Day 1 - 4 CAPE TOWN

Start of your trip in Cape Town and enjoy all of the must-see attractions and exhilarating adventures the Mother City and stunning Cape Peninsula have to offer.

Affectionately known as the Mother City, Cape Town is historically, culturally and visually, the most diverse, breathtakingly scenic and vibrant city you’ll have had the pleasure to visit! From its achingly beautiful natural attributes to its colourful culture; from decadent wine farms to captivating history and architecture - it’s tourist heaven.

There’s no finer way to savour its pleasures than a guided day tour with Thompsons Africa – from wonderful winelands and wine tastings, to riding the cable car to the top of Table Mountain, we’ll take you there in style, with great taste.

Accommodation: Twelve Apostles Hotel & Spa


If you are looking for an unspoiled ocean getaway, it doesn’t get better than the exclusive new Strandloper Ocean Lodge. Hidden away on the shores of the unspoiled fishing village of Paternoster, only 90 minutes from Cape Town, this is a coastal destination with immeasurable charm.

The 16 exquisite rooms and suites are a fusion of beach style and contemporary luxury; with organic lines, hues and textures and an overall feeling of simplicity. Each has its own terrace or courtyard, some with small splash pools, and wide doors that open out onto breath taking views of sky, sand, sea and space.

Take the time to simply be, or if you are feeling more adventurous, set off on an endless beach walk in search of whales and dolphins, hop onto a bicycle for a leisurely ride or take to the waves on a kayak. Paternoster is a seafood and lobster Mecca, a gourmet destination for travellers in search of the ultimate meal. Inspired cuisine with a local and organic slant is created daily at the Ocean Lounge, which also serves up breath taking views of the surroundings. A romantic venue for couples, honeymooners or anyone looking for some special me-time, the Strandloper Ocean Lodge offers the best of West Coast hospitality and fuss-free luxury.
