Day 2: Up in the air

The day begins with a tour of famed Table Mountain (weather permitting; cable car fee not included). Enjoy panoramic views over the Mother City and the Atlantic seaboard with Robben Island in the distance lying sleepily in Table Bay harbor.

In the city itself, stop at the Company Gardens. Enjoy a walk through the garden and a visit to the South African Museum. This is followed by a visit to the Castle of Good Hope. Built between 1666 and 1679 by the Dutch East India Company as a maritime replenishment station, the Castle of Good Hope is the oldest surviving colonial building in South Africa.

The drive through the city center would also take you past the Houses of Parliament, the Grand Parade and City Hall, from where Nelson Mandela first addressed South Africans after his release from prison in February 1990.

Today’s tour is a half-day excursion. You have the rest of the day explore the green, scenic area around your hotel, or just relax.
