  1. DAY 1: Cape Town hotels

    Our journey to the Cape Peninsula takes us along the scenic Atlantic seaboard, passing the pristine soft white sand beaches of Clifton and Camps Bay, with the 12 Apostles rising above the chilly blue Atlantic Ocean below. There is no doubt the coast of the Cape Peninsula offers magnificent scenery with its great biodiversity. We arrive at the quaint fishing village of Hout Bay with its imposing Sentinel. A chance to enjoy a boat ride out to Seal Island (own account) or shop for souvenirs at the craft market on the quayside.
    Our tour continues over Chapman’s Peak which offers amazing photo opportunities, and onto the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, a great example of how the land once was many hundreds of years ago in its virgin state of Cape Fynbos. If lucky you may spot some small buck, numerous birds, the Cape Mountain Zebra, Eland and of course the mischievous baboons. Enjoy lunch (own account) at a restaurant overlooking False Bay. Take the funicular (own account) or the footpath for a 10 minute walk up to the old Cape Point lighthouse to see the “meeting” of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans.

    We visit Boulders Penguin Colony before passing through Simons Town and time permitting to our last stop of the day at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (own account). 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.

    On the spectacular Private Cape Winelands tour, you will be personally introduced to our fantastic Cape wines which our passionate wine makers have been perfecting for over 350 years. Your guide will enjoy the privilege of tailoring the day to suit your own preferences, choosing from a variety of wine routes including Durbanville, Paarl, Wellington, Franschoek and Stellenbosch to name a few. The choices are seemingly endless with the full spectrum of wine on offer from your easy drinking whites to full bodied reds, sweet wines to Methode Cap Classique and with your guide’s local knowledge of the area you can sit back and relax on a fun day out that you soon won’t forget.

    If you don’t wish to taste wine all day long, you can spend your time strolling through some of the most romantic little towns, market streets, art galleries, vintage car collections and grand gables of Cape Dutch architecture that really gives the Cape Winelands their iconic character. Hear the history of these centuries old locations and possibly visit the prison gates where Nelson Mandela took his first steps to freedom.
