Cape Town’s Unique Night Tour in the Summer Season

Departs Bus Stop 1, outside Two Oceans Aquarium:

18h00 (20 Sep – 8 Mar)

17h30 (10 Mar – 5 May)

The Night Bus does not operate on 28 Dec - 02 Jan and on 9 March

The Night Tour, running until 05 May 2014, starts at our Tour Office outside the Two Oceans Aquarium, V&A Waterfront (Bus Stop 1) every day. Taking you past all the best night attractions, the bus stops at Signal Hill to watch the sun set over the Atlantic Ocean – so remember to bring along a picnic basket with snacks and sundowners.

The Bus snakes around the Atlantic Coastline, providing spectacular views of the exclusive suburbs of Sea Point, Clifton and Camps Bay, with their bustling bars and magnificent houses, these suburbs cannot be surpassed in elegance! Whilst on the tour remember to keep your eyes out to sea as well because if you are lucky you may even spot a few whales who have migrated to the Cape of Good Hope to spend their summer!

As you make your way up the famous Camps Bay Drive you will be able to feast your eyes on the upper Table Mountain Cableway station as well as the very striking Twelve Apostles. That is if the weather permits! But be sure to hang on to your hat as the twelve apostles are known for channeling wind in between their rock faces, and it could get a little breezy!

The Night Tour will then, depending on the weather, visit either the summit of Signal Hill or the lower Cableway station.

Signal Hill is located at the bottom of Lion's Head and is commonly known as the rump of the Lion. It provides 360 degree views of the city, made even more spectacular when viewed at sunset. It is also famous for the Noon Day Gun which is the loud bang that can be heard throughout the city to signal 12pm. It is advised to wear warm clothes as once the sun drops below the ocean the temperature begins drop too. Visitors may like to pack a picnic to enjoy once at the summit to enhance their sunset experience.

In case of bad weather the Night Tour will visit the lower Table Mountain Cableway Station, as this is more sheltered than Signal Hill but still provides breath-taking views of the City Centre, the V&A Waterfront, Table Bay and further out towards the Southern Suburbs. Take time to marvel at the twinkling lights of life in Cape Town, and if you are lucky the lights of Table Mountain might even be switched on and provide a highlighted view of the Mother City's majestic mountain.

After the sun has set our bus will take you down the neck of the mountain and into the City Centre, where we will travel along the famous Adderley Street named in 1850 after British Parliamentarian Charles Bowyer Adderley, who fought against the plan to make Cape Town into another convict colony. The street is known for its flower markets, main train station, various shops, offices and restaurants, and also if it is Christmas time you can see the beautiful display of Christmas lights decorating the night sky above you! An experience that both you and the kids will love! And with all these things to see along this street, it is no wonder it is considered the main business street of Cape Town!

Lastly the bus returns to the City Sightseeing kiosk, where you can travel home or continue your night at one of the various restaurants, bars or even clubs located in and around the Waterfront.
