Read all about the latest developments and information of interest below.
Welcome to the launch of our brand new website. We have been in the very exciting process of developing our new website for over a year now. As you will see, it is a complete redesign. We loved the old website but we realised it was needing a bit of an update with all the changes over the years. With all the new technology available, we decided to go the whole way and build a complete new site, and at the same time design a fresh new logo. The functionality and design of the new website gives an up-to-date new look for Afruka Eco Tours. We hope you agree with us and enjoy exploring it.
We have introduced a magnificent 5 day fully guided , accommodated and catered hike along the Hoerikwaggo Trail. This trail starts at Cape Point and ends at the foot of Table Mountain. A great opportunity to experience one of the worlds 7 Natural Wonders . We have both scheduled departures and the option of a customised starting date.
Quite often our guests ask us to organise or recommend accommodation for them. We have no problem providing this service, which we do for free. Below is a list of establishments that we have found always exceed our guests expectations. Please contact us if you require more information.
An African Villa: www.capetowncity.co.za - Three historic terrace houses linked together creating an impressive twelve bedroom boutique hotel with exceptionally generous proportions, ideal for visitors who want a gently pampered environment near to the main attractions of the 'Mother City'. The Villa is situated half way between the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront and Table Mountain Cableway in a quiet residential quarter with a lovely 'village' feel within a short stroll of the centre of Cape Town and a large number of its best restaurants. These elegant double-story Victorian terraced houses have the hallmark architectural characteristics of an era when space was no obstacle. The rooms are spacious, the ceilings high and the original walls reassuringly thick and solid. Dating back to the late 1800's the new building has been refurbished and decorated in a sophisticated contemporary African style. The air of calmness which is immediately noticeable in the house is achieved by skilful use of play of light, sensitive use of colour, subtle texture and pattern play which is uniformly applied throughout the house.
