You are met at the airport and taken to the 5-star SaltyCrax Backpackers in Table View. The hostel is within walking distance from Kite Beach, transport terminals, restaurants, bars and shops. Early arrivals can spend the day either on a tour through the Cape Town city centre (optional extra) or simply relaxing on beautiful white beaches with picturesque views of Table Mountain. In the evening we will have a traditional South African BBQ, called a Braai, which gives you a chance to meet the others guests from around the world. After the good meal roll down to the local bars and pubs where you can spend the rest of the night at your leisure.
After breakfast, a qualified kitesurfing instructor from Wind Sports will meet you. He will take you to the world famous Kite Beach that has an amazing backdrop of Table Mountain and a steady supply of wind and waves. Your first day of lessons will begin with:
- Lesson 1: Introduction to Kitesurfing
Includes safety, equipment setup, understanding the wind and land based flying.
- Lesson 2: Water Introduction
Includes large kite handling, self-launch and hopefully body dragging through the water.
- Lesson 3: Water Skills
Includes advanced body dragging, water re-launch and basic board skills.
You are taken back to the hostel after an exciting day of kiting. Relax around the fire while a potjie; a traditional South African stew, is cooked. The rest of the night is yours to discover the local night life.
After a breakfast served in the dining room, you are taken back to the beach. Your final day of lessons include:
- Lesson 4: Board Basics
Includes first water starts on a board and first ride.
- Lesson 5: Supervised Riding and Tips
Includes riding with power, change of direction and holding an edge.
You will now be an IKO accredited kitesurfer and will receive a certificate and card allowing you to kite anywhere in the world!
Abseil Table Mountain! Go down 112m down the world’s highest commercial abseil. Enjoy a stunning view of Cape Town and the Atlantic Ocean at 1000m.
After breakfast and an early start, we go to Atlantis, passing the Melkbos beach along the way. Your sand boarding instructor will show you how to ride down the dunes. We then hit the beach for lunch and to wash the sand off with surf lessons. A minimum number of participants is required. If the minimum requirement is not met, it will be substituted with a Quad Tour or similar activities.
We take a 20 minute drive up the West coast to the skydiving drop zone. Your tandem skydiving instructor will give you a briefing before boarding the plane. The view on the flight is breathtaking. Cape Town lies to the south, False Bay is further south, Robben Island is to the west and the Langebaan Lagoon is to the north. We end the tour at Saltycrax where you can relax in the hammocks or the Jacuzzi and share your adventure with fellow travellers.
This day you can use to explore the beaches & restaurants which are a 5 minute walk from your accommodation or have a relaxing day at the backpackers sorting out all your awesome pictures you took during your visit to the Mother City.
