Situated at the foot of Table Mountain in the heart of Cape Town’s working harbour, the V & A Waterfront offers an abundance of unforgettable experiences. Indoor shopping and entertainment venues seamlessly merge with ocean vistas and mountain views, and the fresh sea breeze and warm African sun add zest to a cosmopolitan, vibrant atmosphere. The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront is where everything comes together in a perfect mix to create an exceptional sense of the city. Venture out to the vineyards and you can sip wine from the land where the grape was grown. South Africa is one of the top wine producing regions on the planet, with more than 600 wineries and 6,000 wines, and the Stellenbosch region is the longest contiguous wine route in the world.


Where else can you get up close and personal with whales and penguins? Hermanus, a quaint seaside village, is the Whale Watching Capital of the World. The anticipation and excitement is touchable… standing on the shore and scanning the seas for any sign of the familiar V-shaped spray. Then, right before you, a southern right whale lifts its head from the water and stares at you. This is a humbling and awe-inspiring experience that you will remember and cherish for the rest of your life. At Boulders Beach, a friendly colony of adorable African Penguins frolic about. You can even walk or wade with them in the ocean. Other must-do’s on the Cape include taking the short boat ride to Dyker (Seal) Island to see thousands of pudgy, hairy Cape Fur Seals – the favorite snack of circling Great White Sharks; having lunch at the unusual restaurant built into Bientang's Cave at the water’s edge, and witnessing the kaleidoscope of sights and fragrances found in The Cape Floral Kingdom. South Africa’s animal kingdom, however, is a horse of different colour. Picture this. After an early morning wakeup and some freshly brewed coffee, you embark on a game drive with a ranger and tracker before the heat of the day kicks in.

Meet the King of the Jungle in his natural habitat during a night time game drive.
