At Scout Cape Town, we want you to have a Cape Town experience…not just a holiday in Cape Town.  So apart from the normal services offered, we also suggest you try out some new lifestyle experiences to immerse you into the South African way.  These encounters will allow you to actually live Cape Town….aren’t you lucky!

On Arrival

We will be on hand to welcome to your holiday villa, show you around and give you the lowdown on the property. We will also provide you with some catering basics to get you going and of course, a bottle of South African wine to start the unwinding and relaxation process.
If you would like us to stock the villa with your favourite foods, let us know and we'll do so.

Airport Transfers

We recommend that you hire a vehicle before arriving in Cape Town as it is much easier to explore Cape Town and its surrounds in your own car. If you prefer, we can arrange for a shuttle service or a personal chauffeur to collect you from the airport. We can also arrange a personal driver for various excursions throughout your stay, such as a trip through the winelands or just to be dropped off at one of Cape Town's superb restaurants.

Private Chefs and Catering

If you have a romantic evening planned or you decide to host a special evening with friends, we can arrange a private chef or catering firm to prepare the perfect event. Chefs can also be reserved for your entire stay or just for certain occasions.

Child-Friendly Services

  • When making your reservation, please let us know if you require child-friendly equipment such as high chairs, cots, etc. We can arrange these for you.
  • >Babysitting services can be arranged for that special night out or whilst you're out during the day.


Tours and guided excursions can be arranged during your stay. Let us know what interests you have and we will recommend a few great experiences.

On Check-Out

We will be on hand to complete a check-out with you and make any last minute arrangements that you require. We are always happy to receive your feedback and look forward to your comments and suggestions.

Foodie heaven

Cape Town is a tasty destination for foodies, gourmands and bon vivants. The city offers superb restaurants, distinctive dining experiences and a variety of cooking courses and tours. And with the Cape winelands on our doorstep, the pairing of food and wine is a given. Scout Cape Town will be happy to arrange restaurant reservations or recommend tours and courses.

Vineyard visits and wine tours

Just a short drive from the Cape Town city centre is the magnificent beauty and rich cultural heritage of the Cape Winelands, where splendid mountains form a dramatic backdrop to lush vineyards and gabled Cape Dutch homesteads. It is the largest wine producing region in Africa and there are six main regions to choose from which gives you the choice to of a quick tasting afternoon or day-trip or a longer wine experiencing excursion. Most of the farms offer wine tastings and cellar tours, so if you want to experience some of the winelands' hidden treasures and learn more about our successful wine industry as part of a group, an individual tour or through an one-on-one with the winemaker, let us know.


The Mother City, as Cape Town is affectionately known, has been the crossroads for diverse cultures for centuries. Apart from being one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, it's historical yet dynamic flair offers connoisseurs a high standard of multi-cultural events and entertainment through its art, music and theatre scenes. According to Newsweek, Cape Town is a "Cultural Mecca"…let us assist you to experience it!
