Nature & Adventure

Cape Town is quickly becoming the go-to place for travellers looking for their adrenaline fix. From shark cage diving to abseiling down Table Mountain, the Mother City is the adventure capital of the world and she is waiting for you to cut loose.

From zipline adventures over the Constantia Valley and MTB tracks to abseiling off the iconic Table Mountain, sky diving and paragliding, Cape Town has a huge variety of options available to those seeking adventure and an adrenaline high.

Combine your love of adventure with the great outdoors by exploring one of the many trails in Cape Town – from Lion’s Head to watching the sun dip over the Atlantic Ocean or the more family-friendly contours of Newlands Forest. There are plenty of wildlife on offer, with baboons common. Just make sure you don’t try and interact with them and DEFINITELY don’t feed them. They are wild animals after all.

It’s not all about the land, of course, and being a coastal city, Cape Town has loads of water-related activities with whale watching and shark cage diving top of the list. You could slow things down a bit with a luxury cruise from the V&A Waterfront around to Clifton for champagne and oysters or go the high-speed option with any number of operators based in the city.
