This morning you will be picked up at your hotel for your scheduled full day tour of the Cape Peninsula. Your journey to Cape Point takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard coastal road. Pass the pristine beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay with their soft white sand and azure blue water. The formidable 12 Apostles Peaks rise above the road on one side, while sheer cliffs and incredible rock formations drop into the icy Atlantic Ocean on the other side. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity. Arrive at the quaint fishing village of Hout Bay with its imposing Sentinel. Visit Seal Island (own account) or shop for souvenirs at the craft market at the harbor. Your tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. This area is home to magnificent ‘fynbos’, many different species of antelope and birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, and mischievous baboons. These creatures entertain guests enjoying lunch at the restaurant, which has splendid views of False Bay. Take the funicular to the lighthouse to see the meeting of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans at the Cape Point. Visit Boulders Beach to see the Jackass penguins, travel through the naval base of Simonstown and then venture inland to your last stop of the day at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. With the sun setting over the tall peaks of Table Mountain the last rays sparkle on the trees and flowers, and offer a fitting end to a day filled with all the Cape has to offer. All entry fees are included except Seal Island cruise. Lunch will be at Two Oceans Restaurant.
- Day 3:
This morning you will be picked up at your hotel and taken on a private tour of the Cape Winelands. Heading north to Paarl, your first stop this morning is at Anura Wine Estate for a cheese and wine tasting. Then the tour makes its way to Franschhoek, with a photo stop en route, at the Groot Drakenstein Prison where Nelson Mandela was released in Feb 1990. The village of Franschhoek nestled amongst the mountains, can easily be mistaken as being in Switzerland. After a short tour of the little town, a second wine tasting will take place in Franschhoek, followed by a lunch stop, and maybe a chance to try some of the fresh trout that Franschhoek is known for. After lunch the tour continues over the Hells Hoogte Mountain Pass to Stellenbosch. It is easy to understand why Simon van der Stel decided to settle a village amongst the mountains. The backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, the white gabled Cape Dutch homesteads and the oak lined streets and lanes all blend in to give this place a charm that will not be forgotten. Time permitting; you will include a third wine tasting. Return to Cape Town with amazing photos and fond memories.
