Cape Town and St Helena Combination

St Helena      South Africa

St Helena is now introducing mid week flights to the island, and with that we are excited to be able to offer a combination of 4 nights in Cape Town at the lovely, owner-run, Clarendon Fresnaye, followed by 4 nights at the majestic Mantis St Helena hotel. On this trip you will be able to see what the Mother City of Cape Town has to offer, ascend Table Mountain, visit the penguins at Boulders' Beach or learn about the history of apartheid at the Robben Island Museum. We will then whisk you off to the magical island of St Helena, where dophins can be seen all year round. If you travel between June and December, too, you may be lucky enough to see the Whale sharks.

Jacob's Ladder
There are a variety of activities to do on St Helena and your consultant can tailor your activities depending on your interests. Today we suggest going up Jacob's Ladder. Built in 1829, this tramway was used to haul manure and military supplies up from the town below. In 1871 it was reconstructed to its present form: 699 steps, an incredible 600ft for you to climb!

Jonathan the Tortoise
St Helena's oldest resident arrived on the island in 1882 and was estimated to be 50 years old at the time. In 2018 he celebrated his 188th birthday! He is a Seychelles Giant Tortoise and is one of only a handful of survivors of his species, making him a rarity both in type and in age. In fact, he's thought to be the oldest living animal in the world. Visit him in the gardens of Plantation House, the residence of the governor.
Accommodation: Mantis St Helena

Final day - return to Johannesburg
Spend your final day touring the island. You could choose to learn about the history of Napoleon, who was exiled to the island in 1815 by the British after his defeat at Waterloo, by visiting French-owned Longwood House which is now a museum. Diving, fishing, hiking or bird watching tours are also available on the island so there is something for everyone to do! In the early afternoon, you will be transferred to the airport for your flight back to Johannesburg. Due to connecting times of the flights, you will need to overnight in Johannesburg to fly onward to London Heathrow. Speak to your consultant if you would like to arrange day tours of Johannesburg. While you're there, Soweto or the apartheid museum are all highly recommended.
