You are welcomed at the airport and transported to the 5 star Saltycrax Backpackers in Blouberg. The hostel is within walking distance from all bars, restaurants, the beach, shops and transport terminals. Blouberg is famous for kitesurfing, water sports and its amazing views of Table Mountain. For the rest of your day you can go down to the famous Kite Beach to capture some great views of Table Mountain, sip a cocktail, get lunch or take a stroll on the beach. At night a traditional South African meal is cooked on the fire. This is a great opportunity to meet new people from around the world. You will spend the night at Saltycrax.
After helping yourself to breakfast, your friendly Saltycrax Staff member will give you a brief lesson on using Cape Town’s public transport and will accompany you by bus to the Cape Town city centre. They will provide you with a bus card and enough credit for your whole journey. You have one of two options, a walking tour or a hop on hop off bus tour.
Today you will explore the splendour of the Cape Peninsula on a Cape Point Tour. The tour follows the Atlantic Seaboard, past Clifton & Camps Bay to the fishing hamlet of Hout Bay. A cruise to Duiker Island to see the colony of Cape Fur Seals is optional. Continue along the scenic Chapman’s Peak Drive to Boulders Beach to meet a colony of rare Jackass Penguins (Own expense). At the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve you can cycle through the reserve. You stop for a picnic lunch before climbing to the lighthouse. After taking in the amazing views you slowly head back to Table View past the white beaches of Kommetjie and Scarborough.
The Wine Route tour is mellow and involves no exercise, other than lifting your wine glass. You will visit three regions of the Cape Winelands: Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, and Paarl, with a tasting in each region, a cellar tour at one of the farms and a picnic lunch. The wine farms offer a variety of white and red cultivars, as well as their own blends and styles. We allow enough time for each tasting to fully appreciate and enjoy the wine master’s art.
You can spend the day relaxing on the beach or go on an adventure like shark cage diving, skydiving or sandboarding. For other options on what you can do ask your friendly Saltycrax Staff member. (Own expense) After your free day you will arrive back at the backpackers where you can share your stories from the past few days over a drink with the other guests. If you want to, venture off to explore Table Views nightlife.
