Making every second count… from Charmaine.

The famous Roald Dahl put it so simply…. “We have so much time and so little to do.  Strike that, reverse it!”

As to the former part of his statement – you can rest assured that is not how we feel! We are facing the end of February in this ‘New Year’, already.  It would more aptly read … “Where has the time gone???”

However, if we reverse it… We know that we do indeed offer our valued guests so much to do.  MORE Private Travel has welcomed so many friends – both old and new – to this beautiful country over the last year. This continuously encourages us to look for any and all new opportunities to make every moment of TIME spent with us count!

Chanelle, our Concierge Executive, has been on a journey to discover the most novel ways for our guests to experience the Cape.  Apart from the 7th Wonder of the World, “Table Mountain”, and the traditional visit to Robben Island, we have taken our menu of recommended activities in the region to another level.

Savour your time by selecting one of our tours and enjoy traditional dining through ‘Foody Pit Stops’ along the way.  Grab a Las Paletas ice-cream at the Foodbarn Deli; visit Bertha’s for fresh West Coast Mussels; sample high tea in the Kirstenbosch Gardens; enjoy our traditional “Koeksisters” on The Parade; Shisanyamas in Bo-Kaap – and so the list goes on…

You’ll find an array of festivals, carnivals, theatre productions, picnic concerts, new art gallery openings and artists’ launches on the cards each month.  Please contact our MORE Private Travel Experts for a copy of our monthly activity calendar, where you can choose your favourites.

We will be featuring two new columns for our readers every month, where our team members share their “Top Travel Tips”, along with our latest exclusive promotions. In this edition, Ashley’s top tips are….
