DAY 11-12: CAPE TOWN

In Cape Town you can enjoy the sunset from Table Mountain, go shopping, relax on one of the city's beautiful beaches, or visit the colorful houses in Bo-Kaap. Cape Town is an exciting city that has something to offer for all tastes and ages. We recommend an excursion to the captive island Robben Island and a day in the township with the organization Uthando. Their main goal is to help the inhabitants of these districts to become financially independent and provide activities to those who do not have any. Here you get an insight into people's everyday lives "behind the facade" of Cape Town.

DAY 13: DEPARTURE

You are picked up at the hotel and driven to the airport for your return journey.
