Beat the crowds and start the day early with your private guide by visiting Cape Town’s most iconic landmark, Table Mountain. One of the most spectacularly bio-diverse places on Earth, an estimated 1,500 unique species of plant-life are found on Table Mountain alone, many of which are endemic and found nowhere else on the planet. Ascend by cable car as the mist from the clouds open up to the main plateau while striking views of Cape Town come into crystal-clear focus. Now with a better understanding of the city’s layout, walk past Cape Town’s storied past as your guide recounts the colorful histories of the Houses of Parliament, the Castle of Good Hope (South Africa’s oldest building) and the well-tended Company Gardens. Bargain your way through the lively Greenmarket Square in search of souvenir while meeting local artisans along the way. As you enter another one of Cape Town’s famed stop at Bo-Kaap, learn how the Cape Malay community, with its cobbled streets and brightly colored houses became one of city’ most vibrant neighborhoods. There’s no better way of understanding local history than through your Capetonian guide. From here you have the choice of being dropped off at the V&A Waterfront to experience this landmark at your own pace, with its many shops, restaurants and pubs - or at your hotel to end the tour. Should you choose to visit the waterfront, please speak to your Destination Expert for a range of recommendations for lunch.

Further along you will reach the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve where, at Cape Point, you will board a funicular or walk up the stairway that leads to the Cape Point Lighthouse; it is here that you will observe the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans while enjoying fantastic views of False Bay. Departing from Cape Point, head northward to Simon’s Town to enjoy lunch (included). Although the city is host to a number of tasty dining options, consider indulging in fresh-caught fish & chips, the town’s specialty. After a refreshing lunch and a bit of time to learn about Simon’s Town, set off with your camera ready to visit Boulders Beach, a nearby nature preserve that is home to a colony of African penguins. Wrapping up your day’s adventure, tour the idyllic Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens, a sprawling park brimming with rare and exotic plant-life that is surely one the finest examples of botany the world over, before being returned to your hotel.

    Abdulatif was an incredible guide and made our trip amazing. The La sultana and hotel in Skoura were incredible.

    We could not ask for anything better. Everything was perfect from the greeters at the airports to the hotel accommodations and safari camps selected for us.Thank you so much for making this one of the very best vacations we have ever had!

    Chelsea made the recommendations and the arrangements and everything went smoothly. She answered a lot of pre-travel questions which was very helpful. The trip was amazing - another trip of a lifetime with Kensington Tours. We were blessed with a guide (Martin) who took care of us - he was the key to the trip. The accommodation's were just grand. We would recommend anyone to take this trip with Kensington Tours - The food at the Lodges was great - Looking forward to our next Kensington trip to Machu Picchu in April.

    The trip was great. All drivers were early for pick-up, room accommodations were comfortable and centrally located, great excursions, delicious food, and we were treated like royalty. Good Job Kensington!

    We had the trip of a lifetime to Kenya and Tanzania. Kensington took great care of us and all the details, allowing us to relax as a family and have a great time. I would absolutely recommend Kensington's Africa team to anyone looking to plan a trip!

    We were extremely pleased with our tour. The guides, their knowledge, the accommodations, the game lodge including staff, game drives, and lodging exceeded our wildest expectations.

  • Nisha C — November 09, 2017 — Africa

    This was one of the best trips we have ever taken. We are avid world travelers and everything was amazing. We loved both our tour guide Ahmed and driver Mohammed. Both were knowledgeable and understood what we wanted out of our trip including " going local" We can't wait to plan our next amazing trip through Kensington Tours.

  • Sharon R — November 07, 2017 — Africa

    I was very happy with all aspects of my trip to Maasai Mara. It was my second trip to the Mara, and as such I knew what to expect and what I wanted out of it. I appreciated that my guide was knowledgeable about birds and bird life.
