Day 1

Morning Table Mountain Aerial Cableway

Get your camera ready for breath-taking vistas over the bay and coastline and out into Robben Island and the Apostle mountains in the distance.

Morning Chavonnes Battery Museum

Chavonnes Battery Museum Normal entry R100

This historic monument and landmark dates back to the early 18th century when the first Dutch Colonials set up a fortification in Cape Town. The original fortification was built, not for colonisation purposes but for nursing sailors back to health, stocking up with supplies, and readying themselves for further journeys East – when trade was booming. Linked to the Castle of Good Hope, it was used until 1860 when it was ripped apart and buried to build the Alfred Basin. There it lay, buried under rubble, for 140 years until it was unearthed from below the sea and the original shoreline was also uncovered.
