Specifically designed for international travellers who want to see more than just Cape Town during their stay, this fabulous tailor-made package includes 5-nights in the Mother City and 2-nights at the luxurious Sanbona Wildlife Reserve, where you can get up close and personal with South Africa’s Big 5 on a 54,000 Hectare malaria-free premier game reserve in the Western Cape.
The Cape Town Cycle Tour (previously the Cape Argus) attracts thousands of international cyclists each year, and while the world’s largest timed cycle race remains the focus of their trip, many choose to extend their stay, either arriving the week before the race to do some pre-argus cycle training tours, or staying on after the race to take a Safari or self-drive the Garden Route.
In South Africa, the possibilities for extensions are endless, and you could easily spend a month in the Western Cape alone, but if your short on time and want a stress-free trip, this bespoke itinerary including all accommodations, transfers, bike storage (and rental if required), guaranteed entry into the Cape Town Cycle Tour 2018, a custom designed KALAS race day jersey, and an after-party you are never likely to forget, could be exactly what you are looking for!
