Cape Town is deceptive. The inner city – or the original, historic Cape Town city – is very very small, and is often seen as being the city in its entirety. It is not longer the epicentre of Cape town, but it is where the story of the city begins.

This full day City Tour puts the guest in touch with its very earliest days as the home of the Khoisan, right through to 10 years into the future and what is anticipated. It’s not widely known, even by Capetonians, that the nation’s first banks started here; that Cape Town’s start as a commercial city began with water; that the indigenous name for the city was is Camissa, which means `place of sweet waters’; that before the arrival of the Dutch there were thousands of years other history and stories.

We are interested in all the stories, and attempt in the four hours, to cover the widest diversity of the stories that have defined the city.

We include the District Six Museum and District Six the area briefly, as well as the old slave quarter, the Bo Kaap. Sometimes, if time allows, we will include the Slave Lodge.

We spend the morning on Table Mountain – it is great to start the experience, with an aerial view of the city as a whole, giving guests a chance to map the city in their heads. There is plenty of time to get away from the masses and experience the quiet and splendour of this ancient rock formation, one of the energy centres of the planet.

The tour takes place on foot, with parts by vehicle, and sometimes by bike. If you would like to do more of the tour by bike, please let us know when you book.

A typical itinerary could be:

09h00 Guests are collected at their accommodation
09h15 Tour departs
09h35 – 1235 Table Mountain
13h15 Lunch at one of our favourite city eateries, focusing on traditional food
14h00 A walking tour of the Bokaap, exploring the slave origins of
the city (forced removals from other countries to the Cape) and sampling
some local snacks
15h00 The District Six Museum, exploring forced removals internally from the city to the townships
16h00 City Hall and Mandela’s release; Buitenkant Street and the 30000 Man March; District Six

Have you heard of snoek? Injeera? Koesusters? Daaltjies? Ulusu? Umngqusho?

These are just some of the foods we have in Cape Town.

With the incredible diversity of people in the city, you can imagine the kind of diversity of foods we have. So the Cuisine Route was designed to give guests the chance to explore the city through food. It’s a great lense.

On this half day experience you will sample the flavours and stories behind several of the different cultural foods of the city, from street food to chisa nyamas or hot meat bars to traditional home-cooked cuisine.

The tour generally includes food elements across a wide ambit of Cape Town, including the historic city, and townships such as Langa and Guguletu.

in Imizamo Yetu and Hangberg the experience takes place on foot


Surely one of the planet’s most spectacular locations, Hout Bay lies 20 minutes away from Cape Town’s historic centre. Anybody that explores the Cape Peninsula, or drives over Chapman’s Peak, will pass through Hout Bay. People come for the Seal Island boat ride, and many to enjoy seafood at the Harbour.

Now there is a whole new reason to visit Hout Bay – a brand new culinary experience launches on 1 October 2017 that explores the people and culture and creativity of Hout Bay, through her food.

There are two key areas of focus: Imizamo Yetu (isiXhosa for “our efforts”), the township on the hillside above the valley, and Hangberg, the fishing village on the other side of the valley. Imizamo Yetu, also known as IY, is a mainly Xhosa speaking area, with a rich Pan-African flavour. Many residents come from Zimbabwe, Malawi, Congo and other countries to our north.

Hangberg is a mainly Afrikaans speaking area of creole heritage, historically it’s economy was mainly fishing.

Here’s a possible itinerary:

The tour starts from the Coffeebeans Routes HQ in Cape Town central with a welcome drink.
Your guide takes you along the Atlantic Sea Board to Hout Bay, about a 25 minute drive.
In Imizamo Yetu, you meet your local host Phila Nogwavu. Long time resident Phila serves three courses across three venues.
In Hangberg you meet local host Brent Thomas. Across another three venues, Brent serves three courses.
Each course is a small tasting course, but you will still need to pace yourself!
The menu features vetkoek or amagwinya, a snack traditional to South Africans across colour and culture lines; freshly barbequed lamb; ‘running chicken’; snoek, a local fish, and various other sea food items (which seafood will depend on what the ocean is delivering at the time).
After the tour guests are dropped back at their accommodation, if they are staying centrally, or back at the starting point.
You will leave full (arrive hungry!) and deeply enriched by the stories, the places, the people and the insights gained on a food tour that opens up Hout Bay, Cape Town and South Africa in unexpected ways.


This tour was created by Phila Nogwavu (Imizamo Yetu) and Brent Thomas (Hangberg), with mentorship and diretion, from Coffeebeans Routes, and development support from Open Africa.

Are interested to learn more about wine-making process


If you prefer to eat organically or biodynamically produced food as far as possible, then why drink wine that is produced with pesticides? The Cape’s wine regions are famed around the world, and yet less than 1% of them are producing wine using organic farming techniques. Which is quite incredible when you consider how many wine drinkers prefer to buy organic produce at the supermarket or grocery store.

We have spent a long time assembling a tour that explores biodynamic, organic and natural wine-making in the Cape winelands, and have come up with a programme that achieves the same level of intimate narrative that our specialist tours are well known for.

We like to start with Avondale Wine Estate in Paarl. Their two hour Eco Tour of the estate is the best way to get deeply into biodynamic farming techniques in a short way. The Eco Tour is a curated wine tasting that takes place at locations around the estate, together with a cellar tour. The experience starts with their sparkling wine, which we think is one of the best in the region.

By the time we have finished at Avondale, it’s about lunch time. We love Spier Wine Estate’s Eight Restaurant, which sources most of its produce on the estate (including beef, eggs, oyster mushrooms and vegetables), or from nearby farms, a casual but exquisite eatery. Spier is a wine estate that is ‘in-conversion’, slowly converting to organic wine production. They are also the first place in the country growing organic hops for craft beer.

We also love Waterkloof Wine Estate’s restaurant, in Somerset West, set on one of the most spectacular sites. Chef Gregor also favours a farm-to-plate approach in his menu.

After lunch, sometimes we will visit Reyneke Wine Estate in Stellenbosch. Wine-maker Johan Reyneke runs a low-key, super-focused estate, making wines that seek new forms and flavours, using concrete and clay amphora, as well as oak to mature wines.

Sometimes we will visit Waterkloof for a tasting, together with lunch, they are the 3rd biodynamic estate in the region, benefiting from soils that lie high above False Bay.

And we love to finish with natural, garagiste wine-maker Bertus van Niekerk, who produces 18 barrels a year under his Osbloed label. Bertus, a former church minister, conducts a tasting session the patio of his Cape Cod style home in Somerset West.

Sometimes we will include another garagiste, MyWyn, in Franschoek, run by Jacoline Haasbroek.

And sometimes we include another small biodynamic estate, Haut Espoir, also in Franschoek.

In short, if you seek an in-depth, alternative experience of the Cape Winelands, one full of story as well as wine, then this could be what you are looking for.

After the safari lodges, the Cape Winelands is the most popular destination on the African continent. There is good food and wine everywhere you look.

But there is very little if any chance to enjoy home-cooked traditional food, in the home of a local cook.

This Traditional Home-cooked Winelands Lunch experience makes that possible in the magnificent Dwars River Valley, lying between the towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

Take a break from the gourmet fare, and get in touch with indigenous narratives and history and heritage, over a delicious meal prepared from scratch in an intimate home restaurant.

Meet and dine with Sienna Charles, your host. Sienna runs Beker en Bord (Cup and Plate in English), a quirky tea garden and home restaurant in Kylemore, one of the four towns in the Dwars River Valley. This community activist, grandmother, wife and entrepreneur is a terrific cook and storyteller.

Enjoy home-baked breads such as roosterbrood (bread baked over coals) or lepelbrood (spoon bread), locally produced jams, traditional meals such as tomato bredie (stew) and bobotie, and desserts such as koesusters (an aniseed doughnut ball), milktart, or malva pudding.

A Traditional Home-cooked Winelands Lunch experience can be easily add to your Wine Route itinerary as a lunch alternative to a normal restaurant.

The Dwars River Valley is home to the historic towns of Pniel, Kylemore, Johannesdal and Lanquedoc. It is one of the most beautiful valleys on the planet, and located half way between two of the Winelands’ most popular destinations, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

This half day, five hour bike ride, takes visitors through the towns, along the back roads, into the history and heritage, into the homes of storytellers and makers of traditional food.

The experience begins at Boschendal Wine Estate, where we collect our bikes and do a tour overview. The ride heads to Pniel first, taking in street art, the Pniel Museum and local sights. It then heads across the river, onto the backroads into Kylemore, the beautiful second town of the valley, where we have lunch in the home of a great local cook. Then we cycle through the Old Jerusalem Farm to Lanquedoc, where we meet one of the oldest local residents for a historical perspective on the valley, and view one of the valley’s most powerful pieces of street art. Finally, we cycle from Lanquedoc back to Boschendal Wine Estate.

Cape Malay cuisine is a unique distillation of traditional foods from Malaysia, Java, Indonesia and India, with influences from Mozambique and South Africa. It is a collision of dishes introduced by political prisoners at the Cape, the Dutch colonisers and the indigenous KhoeKhoe. Typically, Cape Malay curries don’t have the heat of Indian curries, preferring the sweetness that came from the inclusion of the fruits of the fertile Cape soil.

This Cape Malay Cooking Workshop takes place in Simondium, between Paarl and Franschhoek, at the home of mother and daughter duo Fatima Shaik and Nuruneesha Mukaddam.

They welcome you into their home with a selection of traditional snacks, and then guide you through the preparation of a range of dishes, including boeber, daaltjies, and a curry. They’ll teach you to mix up spices just right. They’ll tell you stories about the food culture they grew up in and learned from their grandmothers. And then when the dishes are all ready, you’ll sit down together and enjoy the feast!

Cape Malay cuisine is a unique distillation of traditional foods from Malaysia, Java, Indonesia and India, with influences from Mozambique and South Africa. It is a collision of dishes introduced by political prisoners at the Cape, the Dutch colonisers and the indigenous KhoeKhoe. Typically, Cape Malay curries don’t have the heat of Indian curries, preferring the sweetness that came from the inclusion of the fruits of the fertile Cape soil.

This Cape Malay Cooking Workshop takes place in Simondium, between Paarl and Franschhoek, at the home of mother and daughter duo Fatima Shaik and Nuruneesha Mukaddam.

They welcome you into their home with a selection of traditional snacks, and then guide you through the preparation of a range of dishes, including boeber, daaltjies, and a curry. They’ll teach you to mix up spices just right. They’ll tell you stories about the food culture they grew up in and learned from their grandmothers. And then when the dishes are all ready, you’ll sit down together and enjoy the feast!

PROGRAMME IN DETAIL



Day1. 20 March Cape Town
Arrivals - check in, chill out, welcome dinner
Welcome to the city. One of the Coffeebeans team will meet you at Cape Town International Airport, and transfer you to your hotel. Along the way, we’ll do a bit of a city tour. Cape Town is big, and the airport is about in the middle of the metropole. So from the moment you arrive, we will be able to start unpacking the city for you, there are some very special highlights.
Once you are checked in, we will have a short programme briefing and attempt to answer some of the burning questions you might have!
For dinner, a private traditional Cape Town dinner spread , with a hot original concert at the Cape Town Creative Emporium. It’s a great way to arrive in Cape Town (dinner and concert included in programme fee)

Day2. 21 March Cape Town
Table Mountain (Hoeriwaggo), Camissa Indigenous Water Walk, the Oranjezicht City Farm
We are on the go at 9am. We are going to start from the top of the city, on Table Mountain. Apart from all the beautiful and magical and spiritual reasons you might want to experience being on top of the mountain, one of the most powerful elements of being there is being able to perceive the city in one big glance. The aerial perspective helps to open up the city’s geographies, and demystify it to some degree. We map the week ahead from this elevated position. And enjoy the sheer exhilaration of the elevation.
We will return to the historic city centre for lunch.
After lunch, we walk! We will follow the water paths of the lower part of Table Mountain, exploring the water narratives of the city. Historically, Cape Town is all about fresh water, it’s why the indigenous Khoesan settled at Table Mountain, it’s why various eras of colonising nations did the same. The original Khoesan name for this part of the world was Camissa, or Place of Sweet Waters. Our journey ends at the Oranjezicht City Farm, where we visit their show farm, modelled on the original Cape Dutch approach, and delve into slavery in the Cape.

Day3. 22 March Cape Town
District Six Museum and District Six the area, Slave Walk
We will begin the day with a deepening of our exploration of slavery in the city. We will visit the Slave Lodge, and do a slave route in the city, visiting sites of slavery (as well as sites of indigenous memory).
After lunch, we will travel forward in time and explore forced removals of another era - District Six, a melting pot of the world, destroyed by the apartheid government. We will spend some time at the District Six Museum, before exploring District Six the area, including the small part that is currently under development, with former residents getting homes from the government.

Day4. 23 March Cape Town
Robben Island, Revolution Route
We start our day in the historic city, unpacking the revolutionary history of Cape Town at a selection of key sites. We are going to learn about other key political figures and thinkers, including Imam Haron, Cissie Gool and Steve Biko. We will revisit the day of Mandela’s release and his first address as a free man, from the balcony of City Hall.
Then we follow forced removals out of the city to the townships. We are going to be in Langa, the oldest township in Cape Town, and also the geographic centre of the Cape Town metropole. Which makes for interesting opportunities. We will start our visit to Langa with the Langa Pass Museum. Picking up the Robben Island narrative, the Pass Museum takes us deeper into the foundation of the apartheid system, the Dompas or Pass document, the document that determined the movement of black people. This will journey us into some fascinating insight into South Africa’s recent past.
Then we head into the Langa Quarter, a precinct that is running with the idea that Langa is the centre of the metropole, and establishing itself as a cultural and economic hub in the city. We will learn from this visit more about how the future of Langa is being shaped.
We will have a home cooked lunch in the home of a good friend who has prepared a selection of Nelson Mandela’s favourite dishes (included in programme fee).
After lunch, we will take the 1500 Robben Island ferry. The Robben Island tour will deepen your insight into key revolutionary figures, including of course Nelson Mandela, he’s the primary focus, but also people like Robert Sobukwe, the leader of the Pan African Congress, a pivotal political thinker and activist.
Back at the hotel between 1800 and 1900, depending on when the ferry returns.

Day5. 24 March Cape Town
Peninsula Route - Cape of Good Hope, Kirstenbosch Gardens,
We’ll start at 9am and head out to Cape Point for a relaxing day of sightseeing, touching on elements of our history. We pass through stunning coastal villages, including Kalk Bay, Muizenberg and Simonstown. Cape Point, where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet, is spectacular. You’ll have a chance to take the funicular, walk to the lighthouse and take a short hike in the reserve.
We will also visit the Constantia winelands, the home of the earliest Cape wines, where we will visit the museum at Groot Constantia, the oldest wine estate.
We will also visit briefly Kirstenbosch Gardens, South Africa’s most popular botanical gardens, and also a site of forced removals. Beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens is also a contested and elitist space.

Day6. 25 March Cape Town
A history of Cape Town - in the winelands
So much rich history here in the winelands. Stellenbosch is the 2nd oldest town in the country, after Cape Town, and so the region has a history almost as deep as Cape Town’s. Slavery played a massive part of this history, and the legacy of slavery is vivid even today. We will visit Lanquedoch and Pniel, two winelands towns where freed slaves were given tenure. We will visit Solms Delta for their music and heritage museum, showcasing the indigenous and slave histories of the Franschhoek region. We will visit the Spier Wine Estate and do their one hour slave audio route. And for a contemporary perspective, we’ll visit the Lynedoch Eco Village across the road, and learn about their attempts to grapple with and address social justice issues in an inclusive, racially and economically diverse village.

Day7. 26 March Cape Town
Free day with guide and vehicle on hand for voluntary work.

Day8. 27 March Safari
We will check out of the hotel early to get an early flight to Johannesburg, and pick up a transfer from the OR Tambo airport to get to the safari lodge, and then two nights on safari!
All meals and game drives included at safari lodge. Drinks and items of personal nature excluded.

www.ikhayalodge.co.za


The hotel doesn’t have a 24 hour concierge, so if you return late in the night from an outing, you may wait a moment or two for someone to open the door, but there will always be someone to let you in, no matter what time you return.


When out late at night, use a cab to return to the hotel rather than walking. There are some routes from the entertainment hubs to the hotel that are a little dark and opportunistic when the city is asleep.


On the same square as the hotel, are some places to eat:


Maria’s, a Greek eatery

Vandiar’s, serving Indian cuisine

Roxy’s, a cafe style eatery


Kruger National Park

Shindzela Tented Safari Camp or similar

Meals


In Cape Town, budget for between 10 and 20 USD per person per meal. Lunches will average around 10 USD, dinners around 20 USD. Tipping is a standard 10% - if the service is poor tips are not necessary, if excellent up to 20% is appropriate. At hotels and airports, it is reasonable to tip porters 2 to 5 USD a time. At the end of your stay, a tip of 10 to 20 USD is well received by the room cleaning staff, but certainly not expected.
On safari, all meals are included.
Cape Town eateries
Cafe Royale, gourmet burgers on Long Street
The Bokaap Kombuis, Cape Malay food in the Bokaap
Harbour House, V&A Waterfront, great for seafood (budget a little extra per person here, up to 25 - 30 USD)
Fork is a good tapas place, on Long Street (avoid La Parada on Bree, tacky tapas)
Plant Cafe, amazing vegetarian and vegan eatery, open for lunches and breakfasts. Such good food. Buiten St, just off the Long Street hub
Masala Dosa is great for South Indian food, very funky place on Long Street
Bhukara is great for North Indian cuisine, a serious eatery in comparison to Masala dosa, very good food.
El Burro, hip Mexican joint in Green Point, very good, with craft beer and tequila
Downtown Ramen, if you are into ramen, this is excellent.
Buzby Grill in Sea Point and Carne in the CBD for excellent steaks if you need one of those
Societi Bistro is excellent for mid-range gourmet food (budget a little extra here, 25 - 30 USD per person)
(you’ll notice more Indian options here than South African - in Cape Town we are not very good at making our local cuisine so readily available, other than Cape Malay. Sorry for that)
Getting around
During the programme, we’ll be getting you everywhere you need to be. For dinners, you will be able to walk to most places and you will take cabs back to the hotel. You’ll need two cabs at a time, and can use Uber (highly recommended, the best service in town) or we recommend Excite, Sea Point Radio Taxis and Unicab taxi services. The hotel can arrange them for you if need be. Cab fees are around a dollar per km, and an average ride, to get home from dinner, will be about 10 dollars a cab.

Cape Town is an incredibly musical city. This is the city where music is at its most creative in South Africa, something which is due partly to the natural environment we have, which encourages creativity, but mainly it is because of the history of the city and the diversity of people and cultures and sounds that have ended up here.

On this special music journey we are going to travel deep inside the jazz music of the city, by visiting local jazz musicians in their homes.

Part one is a visit to the home of a jazz musician for dinner, with music and conversation, and part two is a visit either to the home of a second musician for a nightcap, or to a jazz venue for the late set.

The experience is intimate and deep, full of music and engagement and fun. It is a unique opportunity to meet local musicians away from club stages, and an excellent way to discover more about Cape Town and the lives of the people that live in it – through the music.

Our hosts include will Cape Town musicians young and old, all of them composers and performers. These are the musicians defining the sound of the city.

A typical itinerary could look like this:

19h00 Arrive at starting point, enjoy a welcome drink from the bar, while the guide introduces the evening
19h15 Tour departs
19h40 Arrive at the home of the first host for dinner and a concert
21h40 Arrive at home second host for nightcap concert
