Enjoy a few hours of sheer indulgence with an afternoon tea at Cape Town’s prestigious Mount Nelson Hotel. A tradition that dates back to the city’s colonial heritage, afternoon tea is a much-loved pastime in South Africa, and the Mount Nelson is considered the finest place in the city to experience it. Dine on a decadent selection of finger sandwiches, pastries and cakes, and sip on quality loose-leaf teas. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included so you can enjoy your afternoon out with ease.
Leave your central Cape Town hotel by luxury air-conditioned minibus and head to Cape Town’s Mount Nelson Hotel – an establishment noted for being a hallmark of luxury in the city. Named after the 18th-century naval leader Admiral Horatio Nelson (not Nelson Mandela as many assume), Mount Nelson enjoys an ideal location at the foot of Table Mountain, meaning you’ll enjoy stunning views of this iconic site during your afternoon tea.
Head straight to the hotel’s lounge, where a sumptuous afternoon tea buffet is laid out on the elegant Windsor table for you to enjoy. Choose from a selection of savory light bites including neatly cut finger sandwiches, pastries and empanadas, as well as delicately created sweets like chocolate éclairs, cakes and petit fours (tiny chocolates).
Cape Town is well known for its teas, and the Mount Nelson doesn’t disappoint with its selection. Accompany your buffet with one of 30 different loose teas, including favorites like Earl Grey, Darjeeling, Lapsang Souchong and Rooibos.
After two hours of relaxing in Cape Town’s most indulgent hotel, your host will collect you from the lobby and drop you back in town or at your Cape Town hotel.
