Robben Island & Township Tour


Table View is famous for kitesurfing, water sports and its amazing views of Table Mountain from Kite Beach. Stay in a backpacker hostel and meet international guests for a BBQ, or a traditional South African stew potjie (stew) cooked on the fire. 




- Footsteps to Freedom Walking Tour
A three hour walking tour that visits historical sites and African craft markets.
- Hop-on hop-off Topless Bus Tour
The tour takes you around the city centre, the V&A Waterfront and past Clifton and Camps Bay beaches.

Later, take the cable car up Table Mountain. End a busy day with traditional cuisine and drumming at Mama Africa Restaurant. Then party on Long Street, the centre of Cape Town’s nightlife.


Explore the splendour of the Cape Peninsula on a Cape Point Tour. The tour follows the Atlantic Seaboard, past Clifton & Camps Bay to the fishing hamlet of Hout Bay. A cruise to Duiker Island to see the colony of Cape Fur Seals is optional. Continue along the scenic Chapman's Peak Drive to Boulders Beach to meet a colony of rare Jackass Penguins. At the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve you can cycle through the reserve. You stop for a picnic lunch before climbing to the lighthouse. After taking in the amazing views you slowly head back to Table View past the white beaches of Kommetjie and Scarborough.


The Wine Route tour is mellow and involves no exercise - other than lifting your wine glass. You will visit three regions of the Cape Winelands: Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl, with a tasting in each region, a cellar tour at one of the farms and a picnic lunch. The wine farms offer a variety of white and red cultivars, as well as their own blends & styles. We allow enough time for each tasting to fully appreciate and enjoy the wine master’s art.



Add a bit of adventure into your life. You can spend the day relaxing on the beach or you have the choice of one of the following activities :
- Skydiving
- Big 5 Safari
- Shark cage diving
- Sandboarding and surfing combo
After your adventurous day, get back to the backpackers for a traditional Braai (BBQ) and a chance to share your stories from the past few days. Then venture off to explore Table View nightlife.
