Adventure Activities Cape Town

From hiking to wine tasting, beach walking to shark cage diving, from safari tours to whale watching – the list of things to do in Cape Town is endless. No matter what type of traveller you are, one thing is for sure – you will never get bored of this South African port city.

Adventure activities in Cape Town

Cape Town is a hub of all things exciting and full of adrenaline. Starting from the basic snorkelling and hiking to the fear-factor style shark diving, there is something for everyone. Beaches like Muizenberg, Long Beach, Glen Beach, Scarborough Beach and Off The Wall are great surfing destinations, while snorkelling is done best at False Bay, Pyramid Rock and Sunny Cove. Among other adventure activities in Cape Town, there is abseiling off Table Mountain, shark diving in a cage, kayaking with penguins and more.

Shopping in Cape Town

Shopping in Cape Town is a lovely blend of afro-euro. On one hand you will find high end malls and global brands, and on another you will find quirky little shops and fancy boutiques of the local taste. V&A Waterfront is a major destination for shopping and also of Cape Town nightlife. Green Market Square, Woodstock and Church Street are buzzing market places as well.

Here are 5 of the best things to do in Cape Town, among many.

1. Hiking up the Table Mountain

This trail of hiking in Cape Town is almost like a Passage of Rite for veteran hikers, and it is not very difficult for amateurs as well. There are different routes starting from 2 hours, the longest one being 4 hours through Platteklip Gorge. If the sky is clear off ‘Tablecloth’- the white cloud that gathers at the top of the mountain, you can see the spectacular view of Cape Town and the Atlantic on two sides.

2. Wine tasting at Cape Winelands

The Cape Town vineyards are warm and lovely, and have an old-world charm with vintage architecture and tranquil ambience. Enjoy a quite lunch or dinner in one of them, accompanied by the punch of authentic red wine. Constantia is dotted with such estates, and for a wider experience, head towards Stellenbosch or Franschhoek.

3. Cage Diving with sharks

In areas like Simon’s Town, Gaansbai, Seal Island or Mossel Bay, there are tours that arrange for shark-diving in protective steel cages. This is one of the most exciting things to do in Cape Town, pumped with that raging adrenaline rush of seeing the wildest predators of the sea face to face.

4. Whale watching at Hermanus

Hermanus is a whale watching hotspot between July and November. Southern right whales migrate to the beaches of Cape Town in large numbers, highest in density between September and November, and they can be spotted easily from the shoreline. The best spots for whale watching are Cliff Path, the Old Harbour and the Sievers Point. There is also a whale festival in September – attending that will be a fun thing to do in Cape Town.

5. Safaris at Game Reserves

Cape Town is dotted with game reserves for tourists to indulge in private safaris. Aquila Private Game Reserve, Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, Buffelsfontein Game Reserve and Garden Route Game Lodge are some of the best. With luck, you have the chance to spot Africa’s great fauna from up close, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and white rhino).

    • Trip to Kerala

      The overall experience was good due to the cab driver otherwise GSK had provided hotel for Munnar which was 1.5 hour up & 1.5 hour down from the main town so mostly 3 hours of our journey was consumed by travelling which they could have saved by providing stay at munnar itself. And our last day was at Kovalam that too which they provided was around 10 Kms far from beach and at the time of booking they didn't ask wheather we wanted beach facing or not and the quality of room was not upto mark.......And even the cab driver was not updated where to take as per itienary ..............................So dont go for GSK travels in future

    • Trip to Kerala

      Though everything went well but things could have been better. Below is my detailed Feedback: 1. Hotel (Summer Castle) in Munnar was 18 Km away from the tourist attractions. We can ignore that once but not the hospitality received at Hotel. No Hot Water in the room, Intercom Not working, WiFi not working, Pathetic Breakfast Menu and Dinner menu not as per what they charge. Overall, Very Poor Experince at Munnar Hotel. 2. Hotel Spice Inn in Thekkady is excellent but it is 12 Kms away from town and its literally on Highway. So You can't really go to market or town for evening walk etc. 3. Cab Driver: He left us under Scorching sun at Alleppy to save Parking charges while we were waiting for House Boat Owner to pick us up . It literally took them 1 hour to pick us . Also, House Boat was not anchored at Starting Point but was there somewhere mid of the Lake. So they arranged a power boat to take us to House boat. This process wasted 1.5 Hours and we checked in House Boat at 1.30 pm instead of 12 pm. Cab Driver always giving some or the other excuses for locations which we wanted to visit. Overall, ok-ok kind of experience (not too good, not too bad) .

      Hotel staffs were helpful and cooperative. The rooms in hotel at Alleppy were in different building. Last day at Cochin the agent had booked another guests before conclusion of our trip and we were not able to see the Cochin sight seeing. The hotel in Munnar was also about 8 kms. from Munnar town.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      I have already filled up the requisite testimony in the provided format and handed over to the chauffeur. Eliya Nuwara was the best destination but hotel should have been in the town itself. Similarly in Colombo. Enjoyed thoroughly. Thanks for providing the services of Mr. Sujith, who was exceptionally co-operative and apt.

    • Trip to Sri Lanka

      Our trip to Sri Lanka was organised with Boomlanka through Travel Triangle. Pooja of TT was very prompt in her responses. I must mention that Boomlanka had organised the trip in a very professional manner. A word of praise for the coordinator, Deepti, who was very helpful with whatever information I wanted. All throughout the trip she enquired on an every day basis. Mr. Dankan is an extremely friendly and warm person. The car was our home for 6 days and he our host. The accommodations were good except that they were too far off. Once we checked in, there was absolutely no way we could come out to explore the town. The wi fi too was very weak in the hotels. Our overall experience was awesome. Thanks Boomlanka.

    • Trip to Bhutan

      It was a great trip!!! Great place with nice people. We did face some issue as we were informed in the last leg of our trip that there had been some mix up and we had to shift to a different resort at the last moment in Paro. It was in the last two days of our trip. The new place was good: Ravens Nest, however food was an issue. Yet our agent Subash came to resort form the other end of town in the evening and took us out to dinner. Our driver Sonam is a great human being, we really liked him, and yes he was spot on with his timing. The hike to Tiger’s Nest was tiring but fulfilling. Punakha is a beautiful place. The dzong is must visit. And ofcourse, the view of Himalays (including Everest) from the flight was mesmerizing.

    • Trip to Europe

      In Our honeymoon trip to santorini. From the visa process to our guides, and from the sites to our hotels and all of the travel in between, it was apparent that our itinerary was carefully hand-crafted to suit the specific curiosities of our excursion. Especially lot of thanx to Duniya safari staff mayuri for all the arrangements & cooperation through out our tour. Pleasant drivers , our guides spoke English fluently, and each guide knew the finer details of their city (including what and where to eat!), as well as the sites we visited. Our hotels never failed impress - all of them were located in safe, lively, accessible areas of town. Not only did this company provide eco friendly travel, they provided such stress-free travel that even the most apprehensive traveler would feel comfortable upon arrival under the wings of this tour company. I will choose Duniya safari for my next trip.
