Itinerary

Days 1 – 2: Cape Town, South Africa

Today we gather at 13h00 at the AHA’s Harbour Bridge Hotel at the Waterfront before we set off on an exploration of Cape Town. Following a briefing and some formalities, we begin our adventure by hiking up Table Mountain with our tour guide. Stunning views of the city and Atlantic Ocean can be seen from here. The following day, we explore the scenic Cape Peninsula by vehicle. We will visit Hout Bay, Cape Point, and the Cape of Good Hope. Upon returning to the hotel, we will freshen up before heading out to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront for dinner and an evening of entertainment. Our exact itinerary will be weather-dependent. We stay at a lovely lodge situated on the beachfront for both nights. Lunches and dinner will be at your own expense.
