Mauritius & Cape Town Honeymoon Delights
Spend your Honeymoon in the ” Mother City ” of Cape Town which hosts beautiful Cape Dutch homesteads, elegant Georgian townhouses, traditional dancers and minstrels performing in the city streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking, the taste of a well made wine, and the sound of the Snoek horn advertising the wares of fish vendors, this city will fill your senses. The bells of St George’s Cathedral alternate with the plaintive tones of the muezzin calling the faithful to prayer. Visitors give a startled jump, and Capetonians calmly glance at their watches, when the noon gun booms above the city – a relic from the days of sail when sea captains had to check their chronometers. End the trip of a lifetime, lazing around on pristine white beaches in Mauritius, sipping cocktails and watching the sunset over the Indian Ocean.
Day 1: Arrival in Cape Town
On arrival at Cape Town, you will be met by your private tour guide and transfer to the gorgeous 12 Apostles Hotel, where you will be spending the following 5 nights
The Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa stands at the edge of the world. On one side, a line of majestic mountains – The Twelve Apostles – reaches towards the heavens; on the other, the sun sets on breeching whales, playful dolphins, and crashing Atlantic rollers. And all around, you can walk the wilderness trails of the Table Mountain National Park. We’ll even pack you a picnic.
Day 2: Private Half Day City Tour & Table Mountain
On a clear day, the distinctive shape of Table Mountain can be seen from up to 200km out to sea, while its summit provides spectacular views of the city, its Waterfront and Harbour below, the majestic Hottentots Holland mountains to the East and Cape Point to the south.
The Table Mountain cableway underwent a R90 million upgrade in 1997 and the new system – a combination of Swiss and South African Engineering – boasts revolving floors in the new cable cars, giving passengers a 360 degree panoramic view on their way up the mountain.
The five-minute ascent to the top of Table Mountain offers a 360° view of Cape Town, the ocean and the neighbouring peaks.
Once at the top visitors enjoy spectacular views and the peaceful feeling of being over one thousand metres above the city below. The area at the top of the mountain is surprisingly large so leave enough time to stroll along the paths, enjoy the viewing platforms and soak up the vistas.
Return to the lower cable way station after enjoying the spectacular views that Table Mountain offers, and depart on a tour of the “Mother City”
