Treat your taste-buds a la’ Pinotage
Pinotage is one of the signature grapes of South Africa, and is truly homegrown. It owes its existence to curiosity and chance, and the passionate beliefs of a few ardent fans. Initially slow to gain popularity, it is now the second most widely grown red variety on the Cape.
A day dedicated to unleashing your epicurean instincts and discover the acclaimed Pinotage in famous estates and delighting in a Cape Vineyard lunch. The experience is privately guided by our expert guides.
Cape Town is world renowned for shark cage diving for good reason: the high season is nearly seven months long and sightings are virtually guaranteed. Early morning we will pick you up from your hotel and transfer you to your face to face introduction to the Great White Shark. No diving certificate is needed to venture into the cage. For the not so adventurous, incredible sightings of the sharks can be viewed from the comfort of the boat. During the Whale season (July to November), you will also be able to view whales in the same Bay. Late afternoon you will be transferred back to your accommodation in Cape Town. We leave you with a CD of your Cape adrenalin experience.
Nelson “Madiba” Mandela, living legend – icon of a nation.
“During my lifetime I have dedicated myself to the struggle of the African people. I have fought against white domination, and I have fought against black domination. I have cherished the ideal of a democratic and free society in which all persons live together in harmony and with equal opportunities. It is an ideal which I hope to live for and to achieve. But if needs be, it is an ideal for which I am prepared to die.” Nelson Mandela’s closing statement at his defence trial, immediately prior to his almost thirty-year imprisonment.
We’ll guide you on a trail to the various prisons where Nelson Mandela was held captive, ending with his release at the Victor Verster Prison.
