Meet your minibus outside your hotel in Cape Town’s city center and travel in air-conditioned comfort to the Mount Nelson Hotel for afternoon tea.
The hotel was opened in the late 19th century, and named for an 18th-century naval hero, Admiral Horatio Nelson. Since its opening, the hotel has been known for its luxurious service. It’s in an enviable location at the base of Table Mountain, giving visitors wonderful views of the mountain.
Upon arrival, make your way to the lounge of the Mount Nelson Hotel, which is set up for afternoon tea every day with a decadent buffet of finger sandwiches, fruit, cakes, pastries, empanadas and sweets like petit fours and éclairs that may look almost too good to eat.
The beauty of the lounge and the view is complemented by the selection of loose leaf teas to choose from - including Darjeeling, Earl Grey and the South African favorite, Rooibos.
Spend two hours enjoying the opulence of this luxury hotel and its unforgettable tea service, after which your host will escort you from the hotel lobby to your awaiting minibus for transfer back to your Cape Town hotel or elsewhere in the city.
