Sandboarding with Cape X-treme


Winters in Cape Town can be chilly, but they’re not cold enough for ultimate powder snow boarding. Luckily, you can get the same rush from the white dunes of Atlantis with Cape Xtreme sandboarding. Feel the wind through your hair as you test your speed down the slopes. Be prepared - the fear of falling is part of this ultimate thrill. For those who’ve never been on a board, trained guides will have you up and flying in no time.

Hike Table Mountain

Table Mountain

Table Mountain is not only an iconic landmark, but also one of the new Seven Natural Wonders of the World. While the cableway provides a quick way to ascend the mountain, taking one of the multiple hiking routes up is a free and intimate experience. Choose from the popular Platteklip Gorge trail, the aptly named Skeleton’s Gorge hike or the India Venster route. Whichever way you go, you’re sure to enjoy the rich diversity of flora in full bloom during the winter months.

High Speed Boating with Cape X-treme

V&A Waterfront

If you like speed on land, then you’ll love the rush of racing on the water. Join Cape Xtreme as they take you on a powerboat ride that can hit speeds of 100km per hour. This exhilarating adventure starts at the V&A Waterfront and speeds out into Table Bay. Then it’s “hold on tight,” as the powerful engines kick-in and you take off across the open ocean.

Fly on the Atlantico

V&A Waterfront

A flight to remember! The Atlantico gives you the unsurpassed beauty of the rugged Cape Coast as far down the Peninsula as Hout Bay. Departing from the V&A Waterfront, the Huey Helicopter team flies you for 20 minutes over the city and Table Mountain, then along the scenic Atlantic Coast. It’s the best of Cape Town on show, but you get to experience it from a privileged view. Seal Island is the turning point on your journey, marking your exhilarating return to Cape Town.

Tandem Skydive with Skydive Cape Town

Brakkefontein Road, Cape Town

Freefalling to the earth sound like enough to get your adrenaline pumping? Then tandem skydiving is for you! Skydive Cape Town’s trained instructors will keep you in safe hands while you savour the feel-good rush of freefalling. The majestic Cape coastline will unfold before you as you drift back to earth. We guarantee your heart will still be pumping long after you land.

Fuel up lunch at Clarke’s

Bree Street, CBD

After a thrilling day, you’ll need to stop for fuel and Clarke’s bar and restaurant is your best bet for lunch. The low-key restaurant specialises in its homemade brioche bun burgers as much as its vegetarian fare, crispy fried chips and pizzas. Pair your eats with a rooibos and honey iced tea or a cold craft beer and you’ll be ready to get the blood pumping again soon enough.
