This family were searching for adventure in all the right places. An unforgettable escapade of exploration, adrenalin and wild encounters. BigCity made sure that this bespoke luxury experience was one that they would never forget.
Nestled on the slopes of Fresnaye, with its panoramic views stretching out to the horizon, we found the perfect home base for our family - a four bedroom luxury villa equipped with an infinity pool, a cinema for the kids, and a sauna to relax in after a long days exploring.
A luxury SUV afforded the opportunity for unhindered exploration of the Cape and its surrounding areas. Comfort and relaxation set the tone as the visual spectacle of the Peninsula unfolded before them.
Famous for their majestic nature and gargantuan size, the Southern Right Whale has always been a fascination for many. After a scenic drive, they arrived along the Hermanus coast to witness these massive mammals birth and care for their new-born calves. A whale watching cruise allowed for an unparalleled vantage point along the edge of the marine reserve.
From one ocean giant to another, our next experience fulfilled a father’s life-long dream - to come face to face with South Africa’s most formidable deep sea predator - the Great White shark. Plunge into the inky waters of Gaansbaai and prepare yourself as you take a front row seat and bare witness to the awesome power and grace of this formidable creature. An experience sure to make the bravest of hearts skip a beat
Boys will be boys, and what better way to fuel their spirit of adventure than by traversing the face of Cape Town’s most iconic landmark. After a dramatic cable-car ride to the summit, they were met by our experienced abseiling team who saw to the safe, adrenaline fuelled descent of our bold explorers.
After the action packed events of the previous days, a relaxing meandor along the shores of the Cape Peninsula was a welcomed change of pace. From the historic naval port of Simon’s Town to the comical behaviour of the African penguin, the family soaked up the rich and vibrant culture. Their journey concluded where two oceans meet, the Cape Point, a defining experience which affirms Cape Town as a truly one-of-a-kind destination.
