ROL Cruise recommends...

1. Ride a cable car to the top of Table Mountain

The massive, flat-topped Table Mountain is South Africa’s most photographed landmark. Catch a cable car to the top to enjoy spectacular views over Cape Town. Be sure to explore Table Mountain National Park afterwards – its 85 square miles of beauty are home to a plethora of flora and fauna, including caracals (medium-sized wild cats), rock hyraxes and chacma baboons.

2. Sample some of the world’s finest wines at Stellenbosch

South Africa produces some of the very best wines in the world. A mere hour from Cape Town lies Stellenbosch, an oak-lined town surrounded by 100 wine cellars, including favourites such as Kanonkop, Spier and Rust en Vrede. Many of these estates are open to the public, with various tours operating daily.

3. Meet the penguins

Head to Boulders Beach, near Simon’s Town for a unique opportunity to get up close to a colony of endangered African Penguins – this wonderful beach is home to 2,000 of these adorable animals, which you’ll be able to see throughout the year.

4. While away the hours at Victoria & Alfred Waterfront

Victoria & Alfred Waterfront is the cultural and historic hub of the city. Pick up a product created by a local designer from one of the markets, learn something new at The Springbok Experience Rugby Museum or sample local flavours in one of the area’s many eateries. With the iconic Table Mountain as its backdrop, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront also features an aquarium, a giant observation wheel and the Cape Town Diamond Museum.

5. Go on safari

Every visitor to South Africa dreams of seeing ‘The Big Five’ (African elephants, Cape buffaloes, lions, leopards and rhinos) during their trip. Aquila Private Game Reserve is the closest reserve to Cape Town and many cruises offer shore excursions that will take you there. If you prefer water-based animals, take a day trip to Hermanus on the Western Cape to go whale watching or shark cage diving (if you’re brave enough!)
