    Day Two – Cape Town

    You are met at Cape Town airport by our representative and handed your travel documents. You will then be transferred to The Cape Cadogan.



    The Cape Cadogan is a stately double-storey Georgian and Victorian building that dates back to the start of the 19th century. It was originally a farmhouse which was ‘Victorianised’ in 1912 and declared a national monument in 1984. This boutique hotel is well known for its comfortable, luxurious atmosphere. Our reception areas are individually decorated and designed for comfort and tranquility. It is themed on the Irish literary figure Oscar Wilde who was renowned for his bohemian lifestyle throughout Europe and New York during the latter part of the 19th century.
    The public areas comprise a comfortable lounge with an open fireplace, a garden and pool area, and a library where you can relax and read or research your itinerary from the computer terminal provided for your convenience. Bohemian chic is our hallmark, with 12 luxuriously appointed en suite bedrooms that are decorated with an eclectic mix of contemporary and antique furniture using dramatic fabrics to maximum effect.



    The rest of the day is at leisure to relax or you can make your way to the lower cable station where you will ride the cable car up Table Mountain (weather permitting) to enjoy the view over Cape Town and across Table Bay to Robben Island (R160). The Cape Codogan is within walking distance of Kloof Street where you will find many restaurants.

    Accommodation: Cape Cadogan Basis: Bed & Breakfast



    Day Three – Cape Town - Uthando Cultural Field Trip

    You will be collected from Cape Cadogan for your Cultural Field Trip. You will visit a minimum of 3 projects during your trip. Uthando South Africa ( Love ) South Africa is a non-profit organisation while also being a truly unique Responsible Tourism Initiative based in Cape Town, South Africa. The mission of Uthando South Africa is to provide a platform and infrastructure to raise funds from individuals, groups and organisations who have an interest in the region. The money generated supports a broad range of grass roots, community based, sustainable, innovative and empowerment projects with substantial and enduring value to the most destitute and marginalized communities in South Africa. In addition Uthando aims to provide tourists with an authentic introduction to the social problems confronting so many South Africans, and the innovative and truly inspirational ways in which these problems are being handled.



    After your Uthando Trip you can explore the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. The hotel reception will call a taxi for you. The Waterfront is Southern Africa’s trendiest shopping precinct and is a great place to look for gifts. Visit the Waterfront’s Two Oceans Aquarium, which is highly recommended for the insight it gives into life in the two oceans off the southern tip of Africa – the cold Atlantic Ocean and the warm Indian Ocean. Alternatively, you may like to relax on one of the trendy beaches of Camps Bay or Clifton. Museum lovers can wander through the South African Museum and the National Art Gallery. Tonight you may like to try one of the fine quayside restaurants at the Waterfront.

    Accommodation: Cape Cadogan Basis: Bed & Breakfast



    Day Four – Cape Town - Optional Cape Point Tour or Visit Robben Island

    We suggest you take a tour along the coast around the Cape Peninsula to Cape Point. You travel along the Atlantic seaboard via glamorous Clifton to the quaint seaside village of Hout Bay. Here you can take a boat ride from the fishing harbour out to the seal colony on Seal Island.



    Continue via the scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive to Cape Point. Looking at this dramatic promontory jutting into the sea gives one an idea why early sailors nicknamed it the Cape of Storms. You then follow the coastline northwards via Simonstown, where you can visit the penguin colony of Boulders Beach. A leisurely drive through the leafy southern suburbs will bring you back to the hotel in the late afternoon. OR



    You can take a ferry from the Waterfront across Table Bay to Robben Island. An ex-prisoner takes you on an extensive tour of the prison, which includes a visit to Nelson Mandela’s cell, the limestone quarry and the old leper colony.
