Day Tours in Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town is the second most populated city in South Africa and is particularly famous for its harbour. As a result of its fantastic climate and beautiful scenery, it is the most popular tourist destination in the whole of Africa.

Whether you want to visit beaches, see the incredible Table Mountain or safari around the interesting wildlife, Cape Town has a lot to offer. With so much to see it’s hard to fit everything in on just one visit.

One of the best ways to ensure that you see as much of this fantastic place as possible is by going on day tours. You can go on a variety of excursions as a large group, or Cape Town Chauffeur Drive – hire private chauffeurs to take you around. There are benefits to both these options, but the important thing is that you get to see the top attractions and locations.

Table Mountain and City

Table Mountain is a flat-topped mountain, which overlooks Cape Town in South Africa. Table Mountain is very significant as it is actually featured in the flag of Cape Town, and the view from the top has been described as one of the most epic in all of Africa.

Table Mountain is definitely one of the must-see places in Cape Town. If you want to fit in as much as possible, you can couple this with a half-day city tour.  You can enjoy a coastal drive from the mountain to the city, and learn lots of interesting history from the fabulous tour guide. 

Cape of Good Hope and Penguins

The Cape of Good Hope has a very diverse landscape as it includes rocky tops, beautiful beaches and the open sea. As a result it boasts over 250 different species of birds. The African penguins live in the Cape of Good Hope and are definitely worth seeing. They are now classed as an endangered species, so if you’re visiting the area why not stop off?

Many people enjoy visiting the Cape of Good Hope and if you go as part of a tour group, or with a personal tour guide, you will even be able to learn interesting facts while you’re there. 

Vineyards

Cape Town is overflowing with tasty wine that is homemade. While you’re there why not take a trip around some of the vineyards that are located only a short drive outside of the town centre?

There are literally hundreds of vineyards to choose from, and you can access detailed maps of all suggested tours online. This is the perfect day trip for wine-lovers as it gives you a chance to experience some of the countryside as well as tasting the various range of Cape Town wines.

District 6

District 6 is the name of the former inner-city residential area in Cape Town. During the 1970’s, District 6 had over 60,000 of its inhabitants forcibly removed by the apartheid, thus today it is an area steeped in history.

The District 6 museum was established in 1994 and has been a popular tourist attraction ever since. Not only does it feature lots of interesting exhibits about the apartheid, but it covers other cultural and historical events that have taken place in Cape Town.

Cape Town is full of wonderful beaches

District 6 is a very interesting place to visit, especially if you are interested in history. This is definitely a worthwhile day tour that you could take when you’re holidaying in Cape Town.

Conclusion

Cape Town is a beautiful place that is full of interesting attractions and stunning scenery. Whether you’re visiting with friends, family or your partner, going on day tours is a fantastic way to ensure that you see lots of the city.
