CAPE TOWN: MANDELA HISTORY & GREAT WHITE SHARKS
Robben Island Museum and cage diving with great white sharks are highlighted in Cape Town.
Situated near the Cape of Good Hope, Cape Town has a Dutch colonial feel to it. Just across the bay is Robben Island, where Travel With Kids hosts discover the history of Nelson Mandela's "Long Walk to Freedom" in the prison where he spent decades of his life as a political prisoner. A trip down the Cape introduces viewers to precocious residents like baboons and penguins. The mountains in the area offer fantastic views, witnessed as Nathan and Seamus head up Table Mountain by tram, and lots of outdoor activities like hiking and sand boarding. One of the most adventurous activities in the area lurks just down the coast. So, the family head to Grootbos to work on a sustainable farming project with local women learning about growing the land and a once in a life time adventure off the coast to go cage diving with great white sharks!
