Cool New Van, Same Great Vibe Plus A New Kiff Kombi Township Street Art Adventure

With a new, bigger, more comfortable (and air-conditioned) new Toyota van, Kiff Kombi Tours is still your one-way ticket to good vibes 

Last Updated: 15 May 2018

Kiff: adj. South African slang for extremely cool, awesome etc. E.g. “That Kombi is so kiff man!”

You’re waiting at the designated pick-up spot, not exactly sure what to expect. But your shades are on and you’re rocking your shorts and flip-flops. You’re so ready for this, when Kiff Kombi Tours pull up into the parking lot – colourful artwork, summer tunes and happy vibes are all oozing from… a brand-new Toyota van.

Now, those familiar with Kiff Kombi Tours know that co-founders Drew Campbell and Sophie Bagheri started out offering rustic, one-of-a-kind tours of Cape Town in an old-school VW Kombi minibus – lovingly named Veronica. But, this year, they announced Veronica’s retirement.

“It’s sad,” says Drew, “but if we want to remain Cape Town’s coolest tour operator, we need to embrace a newer, more reliable model of minibus.”

And that’s when they introduced us to Cape Town’s newest and most colourful Toyota van.

“Cape Town is an amazing city. And we want to offer our guests the most unique experiences here, with our colourful, painted van, laid-back vibe and lekker music. But now, we do it in more comfort and with air-conditioning for those oh-so-hot summer days – not to mention we can now carry up to 13 people on our awesome tours of the city,” Drew adds.

Ok, ok, so what exactly is an urban safari and what makes it so awesome? Let’s find out.

LET THE TOUR BEGIN

The sun may be at its peak when your journey starts, but no worries, Drew and Sophie have you covered with two cooler boxes loaded with refreshments to keep you hydrated on your urban safari. Kiff Kombi Tours takes you on a unique journey through Cape Town, letting you experience the best of the city, its incredible natural beauty and historical sites from the comfort and awesomeness of a kiff minibus (which in itself is as a South African thing to do as they come).

Your first stop is the city’s famous Bo-Kaap neighbourhood, where your vibey tour guide takes you on a walk through the historic streets with their iconic colourful housing and developments, letting you take in some of the true flavour of Cape Town. Kirsti will provide insight into the history of the area and point out some of the most noteworthy local artwork along the way.

Your second stop is all about mingling over lunch and enjoying locally made craft beer. Devil’s Peak Brewing Company is where the socialising starts. Choose from having a meal and some drinks or try the beer pairing menu – wine pairing also available on request.

Good food combined with local craft beer while meeting new and interesting people, now that’s a recipe for creating new friendships.

Vrrrooom, and we’re off! After our tummies are filled and thirst for beer is quenched, our next stop is District Six. Here, you learn about the hidden messages in the area's street art, some of which have been spray-painted by international artists to raise awareness about and condemn the practice of hunting of rhinos.

EPIC VIEWS & THE COOL OCEAN BREEZE

Drew, who drives the kombi, then takes you on one of the most scenic stretches of road in the world – Chapman’s Peak – which offers panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean and the city’s famous Hout Bay region. Think epic mountainous seaside views, the low-hanging sun over the ocean, the gentle ocean breeze entering the kombi’s windows to caress your skin as your favourite summertime tune plays in the background – that’s it, now you’re almost there.

“This is what Kiff Kombi Tours is all about! We want to take people on a journey through Cape Town – even those who think they’re already familiar with the city,” Sophie says with a glowing smile.

SHH… THE SECRET SUNDOWNER SPOT

Next up, it’s time to win(e)d down with a tasting at – arguably the city’s most beautiful winery – Cape Point Vineyards in the sleepy town of Noordhoek. This chill-out is an opportunity to share your experiences of the tour and perhaps a few things about yourself with your tour mates, too.

But, make no mistake, the tour is not over yet.

You’re off again, taking in Cape Town's famous and beautiful Constantia wine-producing region before heading to the final stop at one of the most incredible spots at the foot of the city’s famous mountain. This is Drew and Sophie’s own secret sundowner spot, where you sit perched on the boulders with a view of Africa’s most expensive neighbourhood and the Twelve Apostles mountain range and waves crashing into rocks as you sip on some bubbly and watch the sun slowly set over the ocean.

As this spot is a secret, we can't say more. There’s nothing for it, but book your Kiff Kombi Tour and come experience it for yourself.

“Kiff Kombi Tours is all about giving you a view of Cape Town that you may not have seen before, offering an experience that is different from every other tour. We want to bring something fresh and vibrant to the tourism industry, something that lets you feel the city as much as you see it. And that is what you can expect with Kiff Kombi Tours,” Drew concludes.

Tip: There are several tours to choose from. Tour some of the coolest and most unique local micro craft breweries in town, with beer tastings, biltong pairings and good vibes on the Craft Beer Safari.

You could be the first to try Kiff Kombi Tours' all-new Constantia Sunday Funday, which takes you from an estate wine tasting to Constantia's newest craft brewery's taproom for beer and lunch, a scenic drive through this winelands landscape, culminating in a party at La Parada at Constantia Nek. Despite the name, this tour can be arranged on other days of the week. Plus, you have to be at least 23 years old to do this tour.

There’s also the option to go penguin spotting at Simon’s Town’s famous Boulders Beach before road tripping to the Cape of Good Hope nature reserve to see the most south-westerly tip of Africa, photogenic Cape Point, on The Road Trip Tour.

Or, take a tour across the city to visit three gin distilleries and three very different and unique tasting experiences, all culminating in a visit to the Cape Town’s Secret Gin Bar (available every day of the week except Sundays) on The Gin Jol.

Also inquire about Kiff Kombi Tours’ Wine, Beer & Biltong Safari (which takes you to the immutable Stellenbosch region), as well as their design-your-own tours.

If you would like more of a cultural experience, Kiff Kombis have also added a Township Tour which takes you through Langa, one of the oldest and most colourful suburbs in Cape Town. The trip includes a local Langa guide to tell you all about the township and the socio-economic impact of the apartheid regime, as well as a street art wall, a traditional “chesa nyama” lunch, a Xhosa music experience and a traditional beer tasting.

The Bill: Urban Safari: R750/p – lunch included. The Road Trip: R750/p – including the drive and all entrance fees. The Craft Beer Safari: R750p/p – including four craft brew tours and tastings, plus a craft beer and food pairing board. The Gin Jol: R770/p – including the drive, gin pairing menus, drinks and snacks. The Wine, Beer & Biltong Safari: R800/p – including the drive to Stellenbosch, entry to two microbreweries and two wine tastings, as well as a traditional South Africa afternoon braai. Constantia Sunday Funday: R750/p – a Sunday afternoon filled with booze, incredible scenery and good vibes.
