Mannabay, Cape Town

MannaBay puts you right at the heart of Cape Town. Which is fortunate, because Africa’s most southerly city is packed with breath-taking sights and exciting experiences.

Being in an underwater cage whilst a great white shark circles ominously around you isn’t perhaps the most relaxing of holiday experiences, but it will certainly be one that will impress your friends. Watching gigantic southern right whales breaching the surface of the Indian Ocean at Hermanus is also unforgettable. And there’s more.

If you stay at MannaBay during your luxury, tailor-made holiday to South Africa you’ll be in the centre of one of Africa’s greatest cities. You’ll have any number of wineries on your doorstep. Table Mountain – and its stunning views – will be yours. The restaurants and cafés in the harbour area, the sightseeing trips and cultural tours will all be accessible. And you’ll be staying amidst the designer luxury of an ultimately stylish boutique hotel.

  • We have travelled with The Ultimate Travel Company six times, the most recent was to New Zealand last year. The trip was very well organised as usual, with excellent accommodation and a wide variety of experiences. Given our obvious satisfaction with Ultimate, we had booked to go to Australia with them this year but due to Covid this was unfortunately cancelled, Ultimate handled the situation very professionally and promptly refunded the whole of our deposit without any quibble. When travel becomes viable again we would definitely rebook with them.
