South Africa Safari
An 11 day South Africa Safari incorporating sightseeing as well as Marine Life experiences.
Day 1 – 4 Cape Town – Guest House Accommodation on bed/breakfast
Day 1 – Dinner at Gold of Africa
GOLD Restaurant in Cape Town offers an authentic African experience. So much more than just an African restaurant, a night at GOLD is an immersive experience that will take you on a 14-dish taste-safari paired with traditional Mali puppets and entertainment.
Day 2 – Table Mountain and Historical Cape Town City Tour
Cape Town locals are extremely fond of the mountain that looms over their city… and with good reason! Table Mountain, which is home to the richest, yet smallest floral kingdom on earth, was voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2011.
Flanked by Devil’s Peak and Lion’s Head, Table Mountain makes up the northern end of the Cape Fold Mountain range. It’s hard to imagine, but the mountain’s distinctive flat top – a three-kilometre level plateau – was once the bottom of a valley!
Day 3 – Cape Peninsular & Township Tour
Day 4 – West Coast Experience based on Self-drive Tour (Guide optional)
Day 5 – Gansbaii – Scenic Self drive Road Trip and Hermanus Whale Watching
Gansbaai is a fishing town and popular tourist destination in the Overberg District Municipality, Western Cape, South Africa. It is known for its dense population of great white sharks and as a whale-watching location.
Day 6 – Shark Cage Dive (optional)
Day 7 – Gansbaii Leisure Day
