London – Cape Town
Check in at London Heathrow for your overnight flight to Cape Town.
Arriving in the morning, you will be taken to your hotel in one of Cape Town’s most picturesque southern suburbs within easy reach of the city’s top attractions.
A short boat ride will bring you to Robben Island, home to the haunting prison cell where iconic leader Nelson Mandela spent 27 years hard labour. You can then enjoy horizon-wide views over the “Mother City” with a trip up Table Mountain in a cable car, before taking in the Castle of Good Hope and the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Complete your stay by browsing the colourful local crafts markets and strolling around the buzzing V & A waterfront.

Nabila has been outstanding. This was a surprise trip for my wife - who does all the holiday planning normally. Nabila listened to my requirements and held my hand every step of the way. Thank you.- RP, Argentina, 2014
