Nostalgic Experiences from the 1900s

IMG_6799Have you ever looked at your parents’ and grandparents’ photo albums, or perhaps classic movies, and wished that you were alive a few generations earlier?

Life seemed so much less complicated those days…

Well, now you have the opportunity to turn back the clock – if only for an hour or so ; and experience a snippet of the earlier 1900s .

Slap on a classic helmet and hop on the back of an authentic Harley Davidson Motorcycle for an hour-long cruise through your hometown or out into the country.

Alternatively, enjoy a scenic ride around Cape Town in a vintage World War II sidecar, complete with high tea at the Twelve Apostles Hotel and Spa.

Few things can match the charm of a vintage steam train ride through the Ceres Valley, especially in steam-train-1151520_960_720winter when the area above Mitchell’s Pass is often covered in snow. Stop by the Ceres Golf Club for lunch before returning to Cape Town.

Visit the SAA Museum to see the evolution of aerospace before taking to the skies and enjoying Johannesburg from a new perspective from inside a classic aircraft – Grand Douglas DC-3 Dakota or Douglas DC-4 Skymaster.

If you enjoyed the aeronautics in Pearl Harbor, or any World War 2 movies, you will  love tearing through the sky in a T6 Harvard. This beefy warbird is a classic American WW2 trainer, which WhatsApp_Image_2018-04-24_at_16.23.44was used to train more fighter pilots than any other aircraft. This experience is for one person, but you can bring along friends to join in a mass formation experience. Be sure to book in advance for this popular adventure!
