DAY 16: Arrive Cape Town, South Africa

Your extension begins with flight to Cape Town from Victoria Falls. Upon arrival at our hotel, we have the afternoon free to explore. Perhaps you’ll visit the Victoria & Albert Waterfront, overflowing with shops and restaurants. Dinner is at the hotel this evening. 


DAY 17: Cape Town

After breakfast, if weather allows, you can stretch your legs on a 2-hour hike up the iconic Table Mountain, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. If you prefer, ride the cable car to the flat summit. You'll also go on a city tour of Cape Town that includes the Houses of Parliament, City Hall, and the Castle of Good Hope. After this we head to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront for lunch on your own. We board a ferry to Robben Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. At this grim island prison, Nelson Mandela was held for 17 years. At the pier, we meet our guide, a former inmate. He will provide a firsthand account of life behind bars and take us to see the cell where Mandela was held and the yard where got fresh air and never gave up hope. 

Back at the waterfront we learn about diamonds and tanzanite during a tour of the Cape Town Diamond Museum at Shimansky. 

 Included meals: breakfast

DAY 18 : Cape Town

We depart the city today for a scenic journey to Cape Point. Along the way, we stop at scenic Hout Bay for views of the distinctive Chapman’s Peak. At Cape Point, we board The Flying Dutchman Funicular to reach the hilltop lighthouse. From this overlook, we can see where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet. Later, lunch is on your own at Simons Town, then we visit the rock-strewn Boulders Beach, where a colony of African penguins makes its home. The evening is yours to enjoy at leisure back in Cape Town.

We visit South Africa’s lovely Winelands region today. In picturesque Stellenbosch, learn why the oldest European settlement in the province is called the “City of Oaks” during a tour. We’re sure to stop for a wine tasting as we explore. Later, enjoy an included lunch and two wine tastings in Franschhoek, South Africa’s wine capital whose vineyards were planted by the French on land they were given by the Dutch. For insight about its fascinating history, we visit the Huguenot Museum and have time to browse the wine shops.
