Cape Town with the Zambezi Queen (5/6 nights) – The Last Word Constantia
Whilst a longer journey will always be a memorable experience, it is often that short but quality break that seems to stand out from the rest. So too will a combination of the Zambezi Queen combined with a three-night stay at a hand-picked Mantis property in Cape Town.
Start off your journey in the oldest and most beautiful wine valley in the Cape, Constantia. Unique in the world in that it falls within the city limits of Cape Town, offering you access to the vibrant city centre, the beaches, exquisite dining and some of the world’s most beautiful sightseeing.
A three-night stay at The Last Word Constantia is all about indulging in elegant and spacious comfort with attention to detail. Set amongst lush gardens with the mountain range as backdrop, the sparkling pool is irresistible whilst the gardens beg to be discovered.
Understanding the nature of true luxury, all beverages are included with your stay, including local wine and premium spirits as well as complimentary wi-fi. Dinners, lunches and high teas are attainable by prior arrangement while an in-house chauffeur service is available for airport transfers and tailored tours.
We suggest you make the most of your time in Cape Town and explore the surrounding area with its many highlights.
Experience the vibe of Cape Town by exploring the city centre where chatty flower sellers will sell you a bunch of indigenous Protea, take a stroll between the stalls of the famous Greenmarket Square, view the Company Gardens and the colourful Malay Quarter. The Castle of Good Hope offers a wonderful insight into Cape Town of yore.
Take a day to discover the delights of the Cape Peninsula with a trip to Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. Call en-route at scenic Hout Bay for a boat trip to Seal Colony and explore Simons Town’s historical naval base. If fauna and flora is your thing, you are at the right address – the fynbos vegetation will delight whilst there is a very good chance of seeing baboons, bontebok, ostriches, the abundant bird life and, in season, Southern Right Whales. A call at Kirstenbosch Gardens never fails to leave you connected to nature.
No visit to Cape Town can ever be complete without exploring the picturesque winelands and the three towns that make up the Western Cape Winelands: Stellenbosch with its tree-lined street, historical architecture and alfresco cafes; Franschhoek with its quaint centre and endless mountain vistas and Paarl, the pearl of the Cape and home of the Afrikaans language. Sample some of the finest wines in the word at selected wine estates or join a cellar tour.
On your last day in Cape Town you will be met and chauffeured to Cape Town International Airport for your connection flight to Kasane where you will board the Zambezi Queen.
