THE CHALLENGE - WHAT TO DO FIRST

...making a decision about what to do first, what to do in the middle and then how to end up - because time overruns always get in the way

THE SOLUTION

...you face a bewildering variety of options and no doubt your friends and family have their ideas about what should happen on a first trip to Africa. In response Tony has sketched a few options or modules - the elements of which are flexible. He would like you to spend time reviewing each itinerary along with the highlights in the slide show at the top of the page and then talk to him. Or Barbara, or both.
Cape Town
Settled by the Dutch in 1652, Cape Town, also known as the Mother City, was the spring board for colonial expansion into the African continent. It is not only the oldest city in the country, at 350 years but also the cultural and historical centre of South Africa. The Cape area is home to some of the most famous wild flower displays on earth. It’s Cape Fynbos ecosystem is unique and occupies, exclusively, one of the six plant kingdoms in the world. Plants are on view for study at the world famous Kirstenbosch Botanical gardens, or in the wild, where they can be reached by short road trips in the Cape peninsula area. The mountain ranges stretching northwards from the shores of False Bay have gifted the region with soils and a climate perfectly suited to viticulture and it is here that South Africa’s wine industry is located. With a climate similar to that found in California and the Mediterranean, many slopes and mountain sides are cloaked in the velvety green of endless vineyards - interrupted only by historical homes and fine restaurants. Tours of the city include the original castle built to protect the first settlers, a cable car trip to the top of the Table Mountain, fine hotels and a boat ride to Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. Some of the most outstanding and spectacular sea and mountain scenery in the world can be enjoyed by following the passes to Cape Point where the Atlantic and Indian oceans meet, returning past the naval base at Simonstown and stopping to watch the penguin colonies at The Boulders, all combining to make Cape Town a never to be forgotten experience.
