The Western Cape & Cape Peninsula
This is an amazing 60 hours in Cape Town & The Peninsula!
Begin your journey by expecting the unexpected. A walk with the penguins!
"I have traveled and led adventures throughout 10 countries in Africa and over the years I’ve visited many cities and cultural centers. We have loaded the two days of this trip with as much local flavor and fun, along with a more serious experience of learning about South Africa's recent history and the cultural transformation that is nothing short of miraculous. Our goal is provide access to the people who live here so they can share their journey so you can understand firsthand about what is life like here." ~Gene Taylor, Co-Founder~
We'll depart Cape Town after breakfast and head toward Chapman’s Peak Drive. It winds it way through the mountains and along the coast to the south-western tip of South Africa and its iconic Cape Of Good Hope! This is one of the most spectacular marine drives anywhere in the world. Choose from a challenging hike up to the Cape Lighthouse, or a relaxing ride on the funicular. From here we'll take a slow walk downhill to the iconic Cape Point Sign for a team photo. Cape Point is a spectacular sight and home to breathtaking bays, beaches and rolling green hills and valleys, just 60km outside of Cape Town. There's more. The Boulders are home to the famous colony of Jackass Penguins, so called for their hilarious braying call. Weather permitting, you have the opportunity to walk among the boulders and local wildlife. There is more to explore in Cape Town than you can imagine. From e-bikes along the coast to shopping at the V&A, from swimming with seals to visiting one of the world's most beautiful botanical gardens, Come Explore The Cape With Us!

Here's What You Can Do In 10-Days In South Africa With Your Teammates & iConquer!
Visit the Cape of Good Hope! Then, cage dive with sharks, go wine tasting, walk with penguins, run a marathon, tour Cape Town, Summit Table Mountain, party with friends, see a rhinoceros, giraffe, lion, cheetah, gazelle, baboons and wildebeest all in one day, dine in a "boma," hear lions roar in the distance as you sleep, see curious monkeys sway the treetops, take a picture of elephants, gazelle, impala and zebra with just one shot, sleep in a permanent tented camp, sip a beverage as the sun sets over the Indian Ocean, dine while nearby hippos tussle and snort at each other, and perhaps the biggest thrill of all, see the circle of life unfold between predator and prey. Lion, wild dogs, leopard, cheetah, hyena, crocodile -- impala, buffalo, zebra and gazelle. Ground scavengers and birds finish whatever is left. More things: Go to a rooftop party, walk the Indian Ocean coastline, dine al fresco in a South African vineyard, imagine you're in a movie with Meryl Streep or Robert Redford, visit Robben Island and walk in the footsteps of Nelson Mandela. And that is only following the outlined activities! There is also plenty of free time for you to explore on your own.

Expect The Unexpected...
Patrick and I were just reminiscing about where we were a year ago, and the adventure that we shared with you in Africa!
It was really the highlight for 2017! The people, the land, the animals, the quiet, the dear fellow travelers, the ease at which we traveled through our safari - all the very best!
Thank you for creating such a memorable moment in time!
