There was a time when the cathedral beauty of Table Mountain and rock twists of the Cape Fold Mountains lay under the sea. The same elemental forces that fracture continents sculpted these extraordinary mountain ranges. This primal beauty extends to the southern reaches where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans merge. A floral kingdom of unrivalled diversity thrives.
A Bountiful Table Awaits
A spread of beaches…
The soft white sands, chill-blue waters and sunset beauty of the Atlantic seaboard;
Warm waters, tidal pools and protected bays on the east, including Boulders Beach, a sanctuary for the engaging, threatened African Penguin.
A waterfront feast…
Framed by a panorama of Cape beauty, the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is an extravaganza of retail, specialist stores, dining, entertainment, accommodation, and tour experiences, complete with the absorbing dynamic of a working harbour.
Cape Winelands’ harvests
Set against the backdrop of mountains, valleys and white gabled homesteads, the vineyards of the Cape bring world-class new age wine offerings to the table. One highlight of this innovative viticulture is the internationally recognized Pinotage varietal.
Fresh from the sea
Seasonal whale offerings of southern right breeding pods and migrating humpbacks: when the Whale Crier of Hermanus blows his kelp horn, you are guaranteed yet another course of breaching, sailing, spouting, lobtailing displays which can be viewed by land, by boat or by air. Conservation-driven Shark Cage Diving excursions are an exciting option.
“Flight of the Fish Eagle” Beckons
Wing your way on this scenic flight over the protected north-eastern Kwa-Zulu Natal paradise of estuaries, wetland and diverse habitats. On landing, you will journey through a forest like no other: sparse undergrowth and a towering of trees sporting streamers of lichen, monkey ropes and bouquets of tree orchids. This Sand Forest, once a coastal dune forest, has been separated from the ocean for over a million years.
The Kruger Roars
The private game reserves within and bordering the world famous Kruger National Park share international acclaim. This is a collection of champagne accommodation, Big Five wealth and leopard viewings extraordinaire. The combined bush skills and local knowledge of trackers and guides ensure safari excursions of unsurpassed excellence.
