Everybody is welcome on our tours; individuals, friends, families, groups and clubs – disabled or not. All our tours are wheelchair accessible. This "enables" the “Disabled traveller" to enjoy an “expedition of a lifetime”
Table Mountain: We start the day with an orientation drive through the city centre of Cape Town – “The Mother City” as it is also known before we drive to the Cable Car Station of Table Mountain. After an exiting cable car ride to the top of Table Mountain we explore the different pathways and see Cape Town from a different angle. Once you return we take a short drive to Signal Hill for another breath taking view.
Cape Point & Penguins: This magnificent full day tour takes us to the majestic meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans which the Explorer Sir Francis Drake called “the fairest Cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the Globe”. On our way to the Cape we also visit the Penguin colony at Boulders beach and drive along picturesque coastal roads including Chapman’s Peak Drive.
Stellenbosch Winefarms: The historic town of Stellenbosch, shaded by ancient oak trees, is the centre of the winegrowing region. We visit 2-3 winefarms and taste the magnificent different wines of the cape. You also have the opportunity to buy the wines and other souvenirs on the winefarms.
Township tour: This tour is a cross-cultural voyage of discovery into the many facets of South African Society. This tour is completely interactive and encompasses the history of the lives and development of the disadvantaged communities in Cape Town, dating back to 1652. The tour begins in "District Six" including the District Six Museum. We then continue on to the townships of Langa & Khayelitsha, Cape Town's largest informal settlement area. On this tour we hope to show you the amazing spirit of hope, positivity, reconstruction and development that exists amongst the many fascinating people among the previously disadvantaged communities.
Waterfront: Here you have the opportunity to shop until you drop! There are hundreds of shops, markets, restaurants, bars, the spectacular Ocean Aquarium, boat cruises in the Harbour, trips out to Robben Island (probably the most famous island due to the fact that Nelson Mandela was held there as a political prisoner for many years. It is now a national museum), listen to some of the street musicians and much more.
Big Sunday Greenpoint Stadium Market: Cape Town’s biggest market. Here you can find just about anything from second hand, brand new, African art, foods to anything you can think of. Try out your bartering abilities and by your souvenirs and presents for he best prices.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens: Fantastic walkways through this world-renowned Botanical Garden display a diversity of Cape flora against the eastern slopes of majestic Table Mountain. This 528 hectares estate, out of which 36 hectares are cultivated gardens, grow only indigenous South African plants and supports a diverse fynbos flora and natural forest.
World of Birds: Over 3000 Birds, Monkeys and small animals of 400 different species in walk-through enclosures. Over 100 spacious, tropically landscaped walk-through aviaries allow really close contact with nature. Watch the birds going about their daily lives, courting, nesting and rearing their young, undisturbed by visitors. A rare treat is a stroll in the Monkey Jungle, where you will come face-to-face with inquisitive Squirrel Monkeys.
Hermanus: We travel along dramatic coastal beauty to the lovely Betty's Bay and then onwards to charming Hermanus. Spring is the best time to witness the miracle of nature as the Antarctic whales come into Walkers Bay to calve and with some luck we will be able to enjoy this amazing sight. After watching the Southern Right Whale play in the sea we return to Cape Town via Sir Lowry's Pass.

To say that my African Trip was "life changing" would be less than accurate. This whole experience was Life Affirming.
To see the majesty of the Velt, the way the animals live and depend upon each other, to watch a bored lion go to sleep because humans are soooo dull provided an ego reality check that I shall treasure for the rest of my life.
Alfie, our safari guide and co-owner, was certainly knowledgeable. He also speaks "Baboon". When a baboon jumped into the bus, he spoke to it firmly and it obeyed! This is a remarkable feat for a mere man. He declined to give lessons, however.
The accommodations in and near the Kruger were great. The cottages were comfortable and clean, accessible and with thatched roofs. The meals that were prepared were fine and I do get to brag to my friends that 'wart hog tastes something like pork'. Finally, the fact that all the people put up with my West Texas drawl and my coffee addiction was quite nice.
Finally, Alfie did drive us through a Township in Capetown. I appreciate the opportunity to have seen this side of South Africa as well.
I appreciate the information that I found in the Africa Guide Website. Thank you
