Fun & adventurous activities to do around Cape Town

If you coming to South Africa there are 2 places that everyone really wants to visit, Kruger National Park & Cape Town.

there are so many great activities to do in and around Cape Town, here are a few of the more adventurous ones:

Seal snorkeling in Hout Bay:

Animal Ocean are the seal snorkeling experts and are dedicated to getting you in the water with these fantastic creatures. Our team of marine guides are only too keen to share the beauty of the ocean and its most playful mammals with you. Our 8 m Rib (inflatable boat) takes up to 10 snorkelers and will get you to the seals quickly and safely. Cape Fur seals are most active and abundant in the heat of Cape Town’s summer. So beat the heat – join us!

Seal Snorkeling in Cape Town happens on the Atlantic side of the Cape Peninsula at Duiker Island, Hout Bay. This island is not known for any Great White shark activity as it is surrounded by cold water (10C – 15C), shallow kelp forests and home to relatively fewer seals (8000) than colonies elsewhere on the coast. We have never seen a Great White shark on any of our trips and this is observation is echoed by the seal-viewing ships that have frequented the same area for over 30 years.

Trips dependant on weather and ocean conditions. We aim to inform snorkelers if their trip is canceled 24 hours before your arrival time. However we will cancel on the day if the ocean conditions are not safe to snorkel. We issue refund in full, but they do take a while to process, please be patient. If you are concerned, please call us a day or two before to check the ocean conditions and if trips may be canceled.

Hiking & abseiling Table Mountain:

If you are craving adventure and throwing yourself off the side of Table Mountain is not enough, then the Table Mountain Abseil
Combo is for YOU.
Hikers enjoy Table Mountain throughout the year with every season offering its own special rewards. The Platteklip Gorge hike,
although tough and not for the faint hearted offers amazing views and beautiful scenery. Hikers are able to enjoy the pleasure of
being surrounded by unspoiled nature.
The floral species found on Table Mountain form part of the Fynbos (Fine leaved) biome and are characterised by hard, tough and
leathery leaves. More than 70% of these species are endemic to the area and found nowhere else in the world. Fynbos does not
support large mammals however smaller mammals such as klipspringer, graysbok, dassies, and Karacal are common.
