: Swedish-born Emmy moved to Cape Town after marrying a South African, falling deeply in love with the Cape and everything around it.
Sharing her passion for wine, adventure and travel, Emmy will show you her city's main attractions and secret spots in 3 days, slotting in perfectly before any safari adventure.
Whether you're a wine lover, adventure lover or just love spectacular scenery, this 3-day excursion around Cape Town brings you the best of South Africa's cultural and natural beauty in one weekend.
Listed as one of the best spots in the world for whale watching, we'll kayak around the bay of Hermanus in search of the largest mammals on the planet, surrounded by playful Cape Fur Seals.
Start to understand South Africa’s complex Apartheid history with a tour of Robben Island, prison for 18 years to South African icon, Nelson Mandela.
Snap your best selfie on the canopy bridge in Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, and finally, watch the sunset over Table Mountain while sipping on the Cape’s finest wine in Stellenbosch.
Itinerary / more information
Day Day 1 - Cape Town Wamkelekile! We'll touch down in Cape Town, South Africa and head straight to Never@Home, our 5-star hostel in the heart of the city. With Clifton's Beaches, Green Point Park, the City Centre, Sea Point Promenade and Lion’s Head all within walking distance, you'll have the chance to spend the day exploring. Hike up Lion’s Head for 365-degree views of Cape Town, stroll the promenade at sunset or lay on one of Clifton’s four beaches, often rated in the world’s Top 10. Tonight we'll meet back at the hostel’s bar & grill, The Randy Warthog, for dinner - ready for the real adventures to begin tomorrow.
Day Day 2 - Cape Town After an included breakfast we’ll take the scenic route to Hermanus, a.k.a the whale-watching holiday capital of the world. A guided sea kayak trip will take us around Walker Bay where, for 6 months of the year, Southern Right Whales come to calf and nurse their newborns. For the rest of the year, having a chance to kayak among other whales, seals, penguins, dolphins, and other marine life will just have to do. Our exploration of the Cape continues through the beautiful Elgin Valley known for its orchards, vineyards, and mountainous scenery. Here we'll stop at one of its two most famous foodie spots - The Elgin Railway Market, an old Apple Warehouse converted into a steampunk food hall, or the Peregrine Farm Stall, offering delicious artisanal farm-produced foods. Either way, we'll leave with satiated appetites for the rest of the day. After working up a rare thirst, it’s time to taste some of the Cape’s finest wine around Stellenbosch. Three wine farms and tastings are on the menu as we meander the sweeping valleys between vineyards, spectacular views and glasses of wine. The evening will end at the vibey Camps Bay for cocktails and dinner to end an adventurous day exploring the Cape.
