DAY 4: CAPE TOWN

We start our day at Kaskazi Kayaks in Mouille Point alongside the Sea Point promenade, getting a safety briefing and orientation. We take to the water in tandem kayaks, with a guide behind you at all times. Enjoy panoramic views of Lion's Head and the iconic Table Mountain, be soaked by the spray and keep an eye out for dolphins, whales and seals frolicking in the deep blue sea! We break for a gourmet picnic lunch on a secluded cove or silky white sand beach, wining and dining in true South African style, just reward for our exertions.

In the afternoon, we hop onto our trusty bikes and experience the peninsula from the saddle. We take in Darwin's Point, where the famous explorer stopped in the HMS Beagle and make our way through Bantry Bay and Clifton, home to the city's most sought after real estate. We visit the bustling promenade and seaside suburb of Camps Bay, and make our way back through the city's culture-rich streets, stopping off in the historic Bo-Kaap community and Company Gardens, learning about the history and heritage of South Africa's oldest city.

Finally we make our way to the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront to mark the end of our eco-active adventure!

DAY 8: HLUHLUWE

After an early breakfast depart on a morning safari drive in Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Reserve.

The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve is the jewel in the crown of the KwaZulu Natal game reserves. Proclaimed in 1895, it is also the oldest game reserve in Africa. Initially two separate reserves, they were joined to create a single 94 000 hectare reserve which is home to one fifth of the world's black and white rhino population. It was here that the internationally acclaimed Operation Rhino started in the 1960s, successfully capturing and relocating white rhino to havens within South Africa and abroad. As a result, this country's white rhino population is now 12 times the 1960 count of 500. Today Hluhluwe-Umfolozi is focusing its efforts on saving the endangered black rhino, whose number in Africa dwindled from 14 000 to a pitiful 2 550 in the 1990s.

The afternoon is a leisure.
