South Africa, fondly known as the ‘Rainbow Nation’ for its rich cultural diversity and history, is by far one of the easiest African countries to travel to. On this exciting scenic and wine lands tour, you start your experience enjoying the natural beauty of Cape Town and iconic Table Mountain before indulging in the countries ‘foodie capital’ and the nearby wine lands of Franschhoek.
In the Cape your every whim can be satisfied and due to the vast range of activities and options on offer, this is a perfect start or end to a wildlife safari in South Africa.
On arrival in the Cape you are met at the airport and transferred to the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront where your hotel is ideally situated overlooking the majestic Table Mountain as well as all the glitzy yachts moored in the harbour. A full day Peninsula tour with a private guide is included in your stay as well as lunch at one of the sea side restaurants. The Peninsula tour includes many of the Cape’s highlights such as the penguins at Boulders beach, the famous Chapman’s Peak drive, Kirstenbosch botanical gardens, Cape Point and a visit to the Cape Fur Seal colony on Duiker Island. Other activities you may want to experience are helicopter flights, the cable car up Table Mountain, shark cage diving, a cooking lesson in the Bo-Kaap or a visit to the Two Oceans aquarium.
After another scrumptious breakfast you depart the Cape for the short but breathtaking drive to the Franschhoek valley and the famous wine estate of the area. The quaint little town of Franschhoek is home to some of the best restaurants in Africa – but you can’t go wrong with food anywhere in the Cape! Take long walks into town and meet the friendly locals, entertain yourself by exploring the numerous galleries, go horse-riding, a visit to the motor museum, hiking or take a picnic in one of the beautiful vineyards.
Return to Cape Town international airport for your onward arrangements.
