Cape Town, South Africa Overview

One of the world's most scenic harbors, the "Mother City" has welcomed sailors since Portuguese navigators first rounded the Cape of Good Hope in the 15th century. Take a cable car ride to the summit of massive, flat-topped Table Mountain, the city's dominating landmark, for a panoramic view of the Cape from 3,300 feet. At nearby Stellenbosch, the university town famous for its Cape Dutch architecture, sip crisp local vintages at one of the well-known wine estates.

This was our favorite port on this cruise. The tour of Cape of Good Hope was stunning as we drove through the seaside suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton taking the Chapman Peak Drive. We passed the suburb of Scarborough as we headed to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Preserve. We enjoyed a delicious lunch on Boulder Beach. A highlight of this excursion was our visit to the penguin colony a short walk from the restaurant. What fun it was to see so many penguins surrounding the boardwalk where we stood watching them. If you love penguins, you will love this stop. Although our arrival was late, were able to take the funicular up to the lighthouse but had to walk down, which was not really a tough descent. It was too late to take the tour of the Botanic Gardens but we had seen so many gardens already on other excursions. As we headed for the ship, we passed the University of Cape Town and Grotte Schuur Hospital. We caught a magnificent sunset on the return trip. The next day visited the Aquila Game Reserve for a day safari into the desert of Karoo to see the game animals. Along with the animals we saw wetlands, a mountain range and three beautiful valleys. After a welcome drink, in the reception area, we set out in 4x4 safari vehicles to locate herds of zebras, giraffes, lions, hippos, elephants, crocodiles. flamingos and many bird species. After our ride, we enjoyed a delicious buffet on the property with time to shop in the gift shop and around the reserve. The following day we took a ride to Table Top Mountain driving through the city to the Cableway Station. Here we took an exciting rotating cable car up the mountain. You can stay on the mountain as long as you. After enjoying the view we descended on the cable car and returned to our ship driving along the beaches.
