Silversea Luxury Cruises - Cape Town, South Africa

Sprawling across endless, staggeringly blue coastline, and watched over by the iconic plane of Table Mountain, Cape Town is without doubt one of the world’s most beautiful cities. A blend of spectacular mountain scenery, multiculturalism and relaxed ocean charm awaits in the Mother City, where you can venture out to rolling vineyards, dine in laid back sea suburbs, or spend days exploring cool urban culture. Cape Town’s natural splendour fully reveals itself as the cable car rears sharply to the top of Table Mountain. View more

From the summit, 3,500 feet above sea level, you can let the scale of the panoramic vistas of the city rolling down towards the ocean wash over you. Another heavenly perspective waits at the top of Lion's Head’s tapering peak. A sharp hike and an early start is required, but the views of the morning sun painting Table Mountain honey-gold are some of Cape Town’s finest. Cape Town’s glorious sunshine and inviting blue rollers can be a little deceiving - these oceans are anything but warm at times, with nothing between the peninsula’s end and Antarctica’s icy chill. This cool water has upsides though, bringing a colony of adorably cute African penguins to Boulders Beach. Boarded walkways offer the perfect vantage point to see the cute creatures dipping into the sea and lounging in the sun. Nearby, journey to the end of Africa at the Cape of Good Hope, where you can stand at the bottom of this mighty continent, watching out over the merging waves of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Cape Town’s beauty is counterpointed by the ominous island form, which sits four miles offshore from the bustling restaurants and lazy seals of the lively V&A Waterfront. A living history lesson, you can sail in the ships that transported prisoners out to Robben Island, before a former prisoner tells of the traumas of life on this offshore prison. Your guide will show you the cramped cells, and render Mandela’s long walk to freedom in heartbreaking, visceral clarity.

Excursões em CAPE TOWN

Cape Town & Table Mountain (Tour & Airport / Hotel Transfer)

This tour and airport transfer is offered to guests with flights that depart Cape Town International Airport after 06:00pm and to our guests with hotel reservations at the Victoria & Alfred Hotel.


No visit to Cape Town is complete without a trip up Table Mountain, the city's most celebrated landmark.


Panoramic Cape Town

Depart quayside and enjoy a sightseeing tour of the "Mother City" with its meticulously preserved Edwardian and Victorian buildings. Proceed up Adderley Street, the principal thoroughfare of Cape Town, passing notable buildings which include the Groote Kerk and St George's Cathedral. Also pass by Castle of Good Hope and the City Hall before driving up Kloof Nek, the saddle between Table Mountain and Lions Head, to the Lower Cableway Station.


Table Mountain

Ascend from the Valley Station 1190 feet (363 metres) to the Mountain Station 3477 feet (1,060m) in a Swiss engineered Rotair cable car. The journey from the base to the summit takes just under 4 minutes where you will enjoy spectacular views as the floor of the car rotates 360 degrees during the ascent and descent.


Table Mountain gets her name from the flat topped central massif of the mountain, which viewed from the city, is surrounded by Devil's Peak on the left, Lion's Head on the right and Signal Hill in the foreground. They form a sort of amphitheatre that encloses the city centre and some of the older suburbs. Other earlier suburbs are on either side of the chain of mountains, which run like a spine through the Cape Peninsula, from Table Mountain to Cape Point - the cape from which Cape Town gets its name.


From the summit, the natural protected area stretching from Signal Hill to Cape Point has been managed under the custodianship of the National Parks Board. This area has one of the highest concentrations of endemic plant and animal species in any area of its size, containing a staggering 2 285 plant species - more than the entire U.K.


Scenic Drive

Following this visit, continue to Camps Bay and then enjoy a scenic drive along the Atlantic seaboard, passing through the residential suburbs of Clifton, Bantry Bay, Sea Point and Green Point en-route.


Hotel Drop-Off

Pass by the impressive Cape Town Stadium before continuing to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront Complex; our first drop-off point.


Airport Drop-Off

For guests continuing on to the Cape Town international Airport, first enjoy some free time at leisure or last minute shopping and lunch (at your own expense) before re-boarding the coach for the approximate one hour drive.


Please note: This tour and airport/hotel transfer is offered to guests with flights departing from the Cape Town International Airport after 06:00pm or those whose ultimate destination is a Silversea Hotel. This tour requires a moderate amount of walking and it is not suitable for guests with limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Guests must be able to embark/disembark the coach via steps with little to no assistance. We recommend guests wear flat, comfortable shoes and bring a sweater or light jacket if cool, as temperatures atop Table Mountain are less warm. The cable car visit at Table Mountain is strictly weather-permitting. If there is cloud cover, the visibility from the summit is very limited. If the cableway is closed, guests will be taken to the summit of Signal Hill to enjoy the views and visit the South African Natural History Museum. Tour's operation is subject to minimum participation. This tour is not recommended for guests who are afraid of heights. Queues at the Lower Cable Station can be longer than usual on busy days. In order to avoid congestion, the order of sites may vary.

Cape Vidal Snorkeling

Depart the quayside and travel in a northerly direction along the national road. Arrive at St Lucia and continue to the Bhangazi gate of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.


You start your game drive in the Eastern Shores of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a section of South Africa's 1st World Heritage Site. This Game Reserve is divided by some of the second highest vegetated dunes in the world with Zebra, Kudu, Buffalo, White Rhino, Leopard, Wildebeest, Nyala, Elephant, Warthog, Wild Dog, Hyenas. Some of these can be spotted from the open game drive vehicles, and an educational overview of the Park will be given by a qualified tour guide.

Continue to Mission Rocks, a rocky beach 12km's into the Park, to enjoy some refreshments.


Continue to Cape Vidal where you might have the opportunity to do some snorkelling, if the tide and ocean conditions permit. While enjoying the beach and ocean, a barbeque lunch will be prepared. Return to iSimangaliso Wetland Park gate and re-board the vehicles for your transfer back to the quayside in Richards Bay.

Chapman's Peak & Scenic Drive

Take in the views of the Atlantic seaboard, the southern Peninsula and Chapman's Peak on this scenic and memorable half-day panoramic coach tour, considered to be one of the best marine drives in the world.


Depart the pier and begin this awe-inspiring look at Cape Town's coastline with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through Sea Point, Bantry Bay, Clifton and Camps Bay. Stop at Maiden's Cove to enjoy the magnificent views onto Camps Bay Beach and the Twelve Apostles, before continuing along the coastal road, past the upmarket suburb of Llandudno, and on towards the fishing village of Hout Bay.


From here you will travel along one of the world's most spectacular routes, Chapman's Peak Drive, with its numerous look out points, which offer magnificent views over the ocean towards Hout Bay and the Sentinel. The road, carved out between 1915 and 1922 hugs the near-vertical face of the mountain. At the time it was constructed, this roadway was regarded as a major feat of engineering. Even today, the drive along this beautiful coastline takes your breath away.


Pass the pristine white sands of Noordhoek Beach, before continuing over the scenic Ou Kaapse Weg (Old Cape Road), taking in the views over the southern Peninsula, Cape Flats, and False Bay.

Head back to the city via the M3 motorway, passing the University of Cape Town, Rhodes Memorial, Mostert's Mill and the famous Groote Schuur Hospital en-route.

Franschhoek Wine Tram

Franschhoek, hop-on hop-off tour

Leaving the quayside, head out to the majestic valley of Franschhoek where you will get to board a wine tram to take you on your winelands journey.

The Franschhoek Wine Tram hop-on hop-off tour is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the Franschhoek Valley - picturesque vineyards, breath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, fine wines and a 300 year history. Passengers aboard the hop-on hop-off tour will experience a unique and leisurely way to see the Franschhoek Valley as they journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa's oldest and most distinguished wine estates.


Wine cultivation

A combination of tram and tram-bus transports passengers around a loop of stops allowing you to hop-off at each stop and experience the activities on offer, be it wine tasting, a cellar tour, lunch or simply a stroll through the vineyards and when they are ready, hop-on to continue the tour. The experience takes passengers right into the heart of the Franschhoek Valley, with a narration focusing on the history of Franschhoek and wine cultivation in the valley, complimentary wine tastings and unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards. Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy wine tastings, cheese and meat platters as well as beautiful views, while an experienced wine guide tells you about the area and the wine you are drinking.


Stellenbosch, Eerste River

After a day spent exploring and enjoying this gastronomic corner of the world, return to Cape Town via Stellenbosch. This broad, fertile valley on the Eerste River was named after its founder, Governor Simon van der Stel, who discovered it in 1680. Today, Stellenbosch is a major university town characterized by Cape Dutch-style architecture and streets lined with oak trees, some of which have been declared national monuments.

Arrive in Cape Town and reboard your cruise ship.

Depart the pier for the The Woodstock Gin Company. Inception as the name alludes was their first gin to be sold publicly. Inception encapsulates their passion for gin making with a unique, elegantly smooth, herbaceous flavour that has subtle undertones of our fynbos blend, including rooibos, buchu and wild rosemary to name a few. The Woodstock Gin Company produces small batches of premium gin through a carefully controlled fractional distillation process. This is combined with an equally special and well guarded secret recipe of botanicals, which delivers the taste that is only found through our passion to create an exceptional quality gin.


Upon arrival, you will be taken through the gin process and tasting some of the best gins they have to offer. You will also enjoy light snacks.


Once your gin tasting is complete, board your awaiting vehicle and drive back to the CBD for your tour of Prins and Prins Jewelers.


Loop and Hout Streets, "old Cape Town"

In 1752 Governor Ryk Tulbagh granted an erf on the then edge of Cape Town, today known as Loop and Hout Streets. A home of unrivalled elegance and grandeur was built and was home to some of Cape Town's wealthiest and influential merchant families of the time. Magnificently decorated during the later 18th century by Dutch artists, murals on the walls (on display today after a lengthy restoration project) take visitors back to a time of elegance and grace in the heart of "old Cape Town". Beautiful works of art incorporating neo-classical styles with Romanesque influences adorn the walls of the reception and depicts the family members as Roman gods and goddesses, very reminiscent of artwork discovered in Pompeii in 1748.


Prins & Prins

Dr Petré Prins, managing director of Prins & Prins, studied geology and geochemistry at the University of Stellenbosch and spent two years doing postgraduate research at the University of Cambridge in England. On his return, he was appointed senior lecturer in geology and mineralogy at Stellenbosch University, where he taught for 12 years. Dr Prins has received the Corstophine Medal from the Geological Society of SA, as well as the SJ Shand Medal from Stellenbosch University. In 1975 he started in the jewellery industry, completed his MBA in 1979, and formally registered Prins & Prins in 1982.


Huguenot House

The museum (brainchild of Dr Petré Prins) is located in the historical and authentically restored 18th century Huguenot House. This unique museum project takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150 km journey to the surface. Follow the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along our coastline. Learn about unique and rare gemstones and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years. The story about South Africa's mineral wealth is told, not only for diamonds, but also for its Platinum and Gold deposits.

After being swept up in the beautiful diamonds and the history behind them, enjoy more light snacks and sparkling wine or juice, as well as free time shopping for your next diamond investment.


Return to the quayside.

Kirstenbosch with Botanist

Take a leisurely stroll through these beautiful surroundings. The magnificent landscape of Kirstenbosch is also a perfect setting for art. The Garden presents a variety of art exhibitions, both outdoor exhibitions of long and short-term duration, as well as indoor art shows and exhibitions in the various venues at Kirstenbosch.

Overberg Discovery

Depart from the Cape Town Cruise Terminal and travel on the N2, past Somerset West and on to the Scenic Clarence Drive. Continue traveling past the small towns of Rooi Els and Pringle Bay.


Your first stop on this beautiful journey is Stony Point Nature Reserve Penguins.


Stony Point Nature Reserve, unique colony of African penguins

Located in the quaint coastal town of Betty's Bay in the Overberg, the Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to a unique colony of African Penguins. Stony Point offers the public the chance to see these wonderful flightless birds up close, via the boardwalk through the colony, which allows the public to observe the penguins go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing or disrupting them.


Also present in the colony are three species of cormorant; the Crowned cormorant, Cape cormorant and Bank cormorant, all of which breed on the outer rocks. There are also Hartlaub's Gulls and Kelp Gulls which forage in the colony, while the Rock Hyrax, more commonly known as the Dassie, can be seen on the surrounding rocks.


Spend your time enjoying the beautiful walkway, while the penguins look on.


Harold Porter Botanical Gardens

After re-boarding your coach, you will be taken to the beautiful Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, just a stone's throw away.


This lovely garden is situated in the center of the coastal fynbos where the flora is at its richest. It encompasses mountain slopes with wind-clipped heathlands, deep gorges with relict forests, flats and marshes with restios, sedges and bulbs, as well as dunes adjacent to the beach with specialized salt-adapted plants. The Garden is renowned for its waterfalls and amber pools.

Robben Island, Political prisoners

For over four centuries, Robben Island has been a place of punishment for exiles and prisoners as well as a place of confinement for lepers, lunatics and the sick. Since 1960, it has become synonymous with the political struggle against apartheid in South Africa. Political prisoners of the past have included Nelson Mandela and poet Dennis Brutus. The last political prisoners were released in 1991 and on 01 January 1997, the Robben Island Museum opened its doors to the public, with quite a number of the former political prisoners becoming island guides. In 1999, Robben Island was declared a Word Heritage Site.


Prison infrastructure, wildlife, birds varieties

Robben Island is an outcrop of rock formed by geological processes extending millions of years ago. Rising and falling sea levels have changed the appearance of the island periodically. Over the past 700,000 years, there have been 12 periods of lower sea levels during which the island has been linked to the mainland. Except for the administrative buildings and prison infrastructure, the island is primarily sand covered with somewhat limite vegetation.


It is home to penguins, seals, chameleons, lizards, snakes, seabirds and a variety of buck. Robben Island hosts about 23 mammals and 132 bird species including the African penguin. Robben Island hosts the third largest colony of African Penguins.

Stop at the top of Paarl Mountain to admire the awe-inspiring vistas over the town, vineyards and mountains. Afterwards, leave the coach at a local wine estate for a guided tour of the cellar, followed by a formal wine tasting.


Franschhoek

Re-board the coach and continue to the lush Franschhoek Valley and the Huguenot village of Franschhoek, 'French Corner'. The area was originally known as Olifants Hoek, 'Elephant's Corner', after elephants took to calving in the sheltered valley with its plentiful supply of food and water.


Wine Estate Lunch

Pay a brief visit to the Huguenot Monument, situated at the foot of the Franschhoek Pass, which commemorates the arrival of the Huguenots in South Africa. The adjoining Huguenot Memorial Museum focuses on the genealogy of the Huguenot families. Your morning of touring concludes at a local wine estate, where a light lunch, with wine awaits.


Stellenbosch

After lunch, travel to Stellenbosch or 'Town of Oaks', the second oldest town in South Africa, founded by Governor Simon van der Stel in 1679. It is a university town famous for its carefully preserved architectural heritage, which includes examples of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian styles as seen on Dorp Street, which is lined with houses, cottages and shops. Rows of oaks and open spaces, where jagged lines of trees etched against white walls diffuse the heat of summer, transform the streets into soft, shady tunnels. The oaks have been proclaimed national monuments.


After an orientation tour through this lovely town, from free time is afford for you to explore further on foot. Browse the shops, stroll through the town, or if you wish, visit the Stellenbosch Museum (optional and on your account), which comprises four different houses depicting different eras (Schreuder House, 1709; Bletterman House, 1788; Grosvenor House, 1800 to 1830 and the OM Bergh House, 1850).


At the appointed time, re-join the group at the coach for the drive back Cape Town and the ship.

This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and not all venues are wheelchair accessible. Wear comfortable walking shoes and bring protection from the sun. Depending on the number of participants, this tour may be split into groups that visit different yet comparable wine estates. Order of sites may vary.
