This is a guest blog from Pamela McOnie of Cape Fusion Tours.   Pamela started her Cape Town touring company in 2003.   

Cape Fusion Tours is a small tribe of guides who share the same passions in life –  first and foremost we love the Cape and all of its foodie offerings. Our aim is to give you a taste of our beautiful city from all sides. We are proud to have been a preferred touring partner to Hills of Africa Travel for many many years!  If I had a to guess I think that I had my first Hills of Africa clients in 2006!  Thank you Hills of Africa for sharing your amazing clients with us!  

All of us are trapped at home at the moment.  We are living in an unreal world where nothing seems normal.   And we are all longing for the same thing.  To escape and to explore the world again.   We are longing for the wild outdoors, and even for the not so wild,  we want to be able to feel that we are in nature.   We simply want open spaces and sky.   I love the new hashtag people are using at the moment #dreamnowtravellater  I want the later to be now.  I want to be sitting on top of a mountain with a glass of wine, perfect blue skies, trees below me, and sunshine on my skin.

In many ways South Africa is the perfect travel destination for 2021.   We have endless space in our country.  Our safari experiences allow you to truly be away from humanity and to immerse yourself in nature.    Most visitors to our country combine a Safari Experience with a visit to Cape Town.

Cape Town is my hometown.  My touring company has specialized in tours of the Cape since 2003.   We offer private tours of the Cape region.  Our aim has always been to show you why we love every second of living here.

We want to share who we are and our history.   We offer you the opportunity to climb under the skin of the destination and to dig deeper.    Part of understanding a destination is getting an idea of who the people are,  exploring their culture and their cuisine.   We offer two food tours where you get to dig a little deeper into who we are.   Our Cape Town Eats City Walking tour is an essential introduction to the Cape on your first visit.   This tour allows you to literally taste who we are as a city.    It is a walking tour and we explore most of the city and chat as we go along.

We are obsessed with the beauty of our where we live.  Table Mountain is our backdrop and the canvas behind our lives.  The Cape has endless coastline offering wonderful views of the sea and the cliffs as you meander along the coastline.   45 minutes away from the city you have a mountainous area known as Stellenbosch.   This region is also one of the most famous wine regions in the country, is home to many of our top restaurants and dates back to the late 1600’s.   Mountainous farmlands with abundant space.   I cannot wait to go for long walks on wine estates.  (I am not a hiking guide!   I wish to meander through the vines!   Perhaps even stop and dance with headphones among the vines at Black Elephant Vineyards!)

We have never had mass tourism in our country.  Next year we know the travel season will be quieter.   This will mean a year where one gets the best service ever as everyone will roll out the red carpet for any visitor!

We look forward to welcoming you back to our beautiful South Africa.   I hope my visuals have made you start dreaming about visiting us!   Come visit us and let us show you our version of the Cape Town we love.
