Robben Island

A relic of South Africa’s tainted past; Robben Island was the prison in which the apartheid government’s most feared political prisoners were incarcerated. Nelson Mandela was its most famous victim, spending 18 years on this island of isolation.


The best view of Cape Town is from above. Plunge out of a moving aeroplane, plummeting for a 30-second free fall before peacefully floating towards the earth for the ultimate adrenaline rush.


Surf’s up! Muizenberg is the perfect beginner’s beach, with a slight breeze causing small shore-breaking waves. Learn how to catch a wave to start your surf adventure in the warmer waters of the Indian Ocean.

Table Mountain

Table Mountain is the defining landmark of Cape Town, with panoramic views of the entire city and surrounding areas. It has gained global recognition after being named as one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

The Cape of Good Hope and Peninsula

Travel along the Cape’s South Peninsula, alongside the Atlantic Seaboard and False Bay coastlines. Exploring the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve will take you to Cape Point, a breathtaking natural marvel where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans meet.
