Welcome to the V&A Waterfront…
Situated between Robben Island and Table Mountain in the
heart of Cape Town's working harbor, the V&A Waterfront has
become one of South Africa's most visited destinations.
Since 1988, the harbor is continually undergoing changes,
with the redevelopment of land and the restoration of
buildings surrounding the original Victoria & Alfred Basins,
creating a mix of shopping and entertainment venues,
intermingled with imaginative office locations, world-class
hotels and luxury apartments in the residential marina.
Aside from the myriad of shops, restaurants and bars,
there is a more cultural side to the Waterfront, focused
around the historic Clock Tower, which was the original Port
Captain's Office in 1882 and part of a collection of well
preserved turn of the century buildings. It is near here
that the ferries depart for Robben Island (from the Nelson
Mandela Gateway), while the Two Oceans Aquarium is a short
walk from here. With ferries and boats continuously on the
go, Cape Fur Seals playing in the harbor water, and a mix
of both locals and international visitors, the Waterfront is
a wonderful place to soak up some typical Cape Town vibe.

Welcome to the Sabi Sand Reserve…
The Sabi Sand Reserve is a 65 000 hectare reserve,
pioneered by the landowners in the 1950’s, when the internal
fences were dropped and a shared environmental management
programme was put in place. Today, many of these families
are now third and fourth generation land owners, their
legacy being the successful conservation of the highest
density of big game in South Africa.
Even though there is a 50km unfenced boundary with the
Kruger National Park, the game in the Sabi Sands reserve is
well habituated resulting in unforgettable close encounters
and prolific sightings, particularly of the elusive leopard.
The Sabi and the Sand Rivers run through the reserve, which
add further dimension to the bio-diversity of this area.
