Extended Cape Town Stays

When I speak to fellow tour operators they often chuckle at me when I suggest that Cape Town is a perfect single destination holiday!

If you are anything like me then there is a high chance you will over-pack by working on the ‘what-if’ principle.

One of the trends where I have seen the greatest growth has been in bespoke luxury solo tours.
