DAY 1

Franschhoek

Welcome to South Africa! We'll meet and greet in the vibrant Mojo Market today, with its international food stalls, bars and boutiques. Then it's time for an orientation tour of Franschhoek town. This place is known as the gastronomic capital of South Africa, but that's not all it has to offer. With its elegant art galleries, stylish architecture and sweeping wine farms, there's plenty to fall in love with as we stroll around.

Wine Tasting

After getting to grips with the place, it's time for our first tasting, as we sample some famous drops at the Haute Cabriere wine farm, then it's onto Grand Provence for more tasting, surrounded by lush vines and views of the valley floor. We'll head for lunch at the Boschendal Deli, tasting more wine under the shadow of the towering oak trees.

Dinner & Sundowners

Before taking a scenic drive to our accommodation for the night (stopping at Pergrine Farm for a few snacks en-route). Arriving at Old Mac Daddy's, we'll enjoy some sundowners and an included dinner, before turning in and getting ready for more adventures tomorrow. 

DAY 2

Kayaking & Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Rise and shine! We've got some awesome morning activities to enjoy today: kayaking, or if you prefer to be upright, stand up paddleboarding.

Fernkloof Nature Reserve

Then we'll head to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve: take your hiking boots! As we walk the breathtaking hiking trail, we'll soak up some spectacular vistas, before reaching the waterfall at the end of our route. Departing Fernkloof, we'll arrive in Hermanus Town for a lunch stop, with time to explore and admire its spectacular bay.
