African Drumming In The Cape Floral Kingdom

One of the Western Cape’s renowned World Heritage Sites lets you get into the African groove with an impromptu occasion of nature and music.

Just think of it – starry skies and the thump of African drums reverberating through the air… Drumming workshops offer participants the opportunity to get together with like-minded souls and enjoy a few hours pounding away on African drums. There are a number of private companies who will organise drumming workshops for groups, usually at an outdoor location.

Cage diving is a thrilling activity where you are lowered into the water, in a secure cage, for a face-to-face encounter.

During peak season, between June and September, on board spectators may also see Great Whites breaching – a fascinating and awe-inspiring display of these sharks' unique hunting habits. Whale watching along the Gansbaai coast is also excellent, particularly between May and December, when Southern Right whales come to mate, calve and nurse their young in this area.

A trip to Robben Island is a must do for anyone visiting Cape Town. When you step foot on the Island, you’re able to see the cell in which Mandela, the world's most famous prisoner, was held for 18 years of his 27-year incarceration.
