The group landed at Cape Town International Airport and were met by a VIP representative who assisted the ladies through customs, immigration and onto the arrivals hall where they were met by their driver and transferred to Lawhill Luxury Apartments at the V&A Waterfront for a four-night stay. The forum met their dedicated guide for a walk through Bo-Kaap where they learned about the historic Malay quarter, its cuisine and culture, but not before enjoying a delicious breakfast at Harvest Cafe. Next on the itinerary was a drive to Constantia to be hosted by the famous chef, Cass Abrahams, where the women got to experience a Cape Malay cooking class, followed by an afternoon exploring Woodstock’s street art and artisanal offerings. On their third day, the group met their guide at 8am for breakfast at Truth Cafe, followed by a stroll through Government Avenue and the Company’s Gardens before a fynbos tasting self development workshop. After a tasty lunch the group returned to their accommodation for a forum meeting during the late afternoon. Their final day began at the trendy Oranjezicht Farmers Market where the travellers could browse and buy all sorts of wonderful food, beverages and non-perishable foods and gifts, mingling with local Capetonians in the process. After a foodie-friendly start, the ladies departed the market began their scenic tour of the Cape Peninsula, starting on the world-famous Chapman’s Peak drive for some incredible photo ops. From visiting the penguin colony at Boulders Beach to Noordhoek for coffee and boutique shopping, the group continued along the coast to Kalk Bay Harbour where they took a late lunch and stroll around the little seaside village before returning to their hotel at approximately 5pm.
After an early, light breakfast and check out, the ladies were taken to the Winchester Mansions Hotel for a vibey jazz brunch, paired with a complimentary Sunday newspaper and a glass of bubbly on arrival. After brunch they were met by four WWII vintage sidecar motorbikes and drivers, provided with helmets and leather jackets, and whisked off along the west coast towards Bloubergstrand. Stopping to take in picture-postcard photographs of Table Mountain from her most famous angle, the travel companions took in beach walk before returning to Cape Town to spend the rest of the day at leisure at the V&A Waterfront. After a marvellous day, the group was collected by their driver and transferred to Cape Town International Airport for their flight home to Nairobi.
