JEWISH CULTURAL & TABLE MOUNTAIN – FULL DAY
Tour Code: FE03
Depart the city for the Lower Cableway Station to board the revolving cable car for a 5-minute ride to the top of Table Mountain. 1086 meters above sea level, it affords bird’s-eye views of both city and Peninsula as you walk its summit (weather permitting).
Return to the city via the old Cape Malay Quarter for a walk through the Company Gardens, a fresh produce garden for visiting ships from the mid 17th Century and home to the Cultural History Museum, Houses of Parliament, National Gallery, SA Museum and Cape Town’s Jewish Campus.
The South African Jewish Museum, opened by Nelson Mandela in 2000 is situated on the heritage site of the Gardens Synagogue, built in 1863, and houses the Cape Town Holocaust Centre and Gitlin Library.
Lunch at the trendy Kosher Café Riteve and browse the delightful Museum shop, before exploring this highly acclaimed high-tech museum, whose interactive, audio/visual exhibits narrate the story of SA Jewry from its early beginnings.
The Cape Town Holocaust Centre, the first in Africa, explores racial and religious intolerance, ideological conflict and persecution, echoing the human rights abuses of Apartheid. We also visit the Great Synagogue, which was consecrated in 1905.
Inclusions: Entrance fees for Jewish Museum, Holocaust Centre, City and Table Mountain. A la Carte Lunch, Bottled Water.
