Tour the south-western end of Cape Town on this South African excursion. Take a trip to the quaint fishing harbour of Hout Bay that overlooks the 1086 metres Table Mountains cloaked with a tablecloth of clouds. Drive along the meandering coastal road to Chapman’s Peak, revealing a sparkling treat of silvery sand beaches blending with turquoise Atlantic Ocean.
At the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, explore a variety of plants, wild animals and birds and a profusion of marine life.
Don’t miss out a trip to Simon’s Town, also called the ‘Historic Mile’ due to its 21 Victorian era buildings, dating over 150 years. This town has a fine collection of seafood restaurants, museums, antique shops, secluded beaches and colonies of jackass penguins. Choose from a selection of fine wines at a winery in the beautiful little town of Stellenbosch.
In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned coach from your hotel in central Cape Town and shown the highlights of Cape Point and Cape Winelands. There will be commentary in English in the coach.
Tour begins with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburb of Sea Point and Camps Bay with its glorious views of the Twelve Apostles, part of the Table Mountain range.
From here we travel to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, comprising over 17,300 acres of indigenous fauna and flora. Here we can see a variety of wildlife that includes baboons, rhebok, Cape Mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world's largest breeding grounds for tortoises. Bird-watchers, too, will find many fine species to observe.
The majestic coastline offers drama worthy of being called "Nature's Greatest Show." We'll be able to see the union of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans (as per legend), and may even feel the brisk wind that is dubbed the "Cape Doctor" for its presumed curative powers.
Following the coastline along False Bay, we'll continue to the Stellenbosch winelands. Stellenbosch is an architectural jewel with a gracious blend of 18-century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings. We then head for a wine tasting session in the Stellenbosch area before returning to Cape Town.
After wine tasting, you will be dropped back to your hotel in central Cape Town.
