DAY 1

Stellenbosch

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 to head to the Stellenbosch winelands...

Wine Tasting

With its dipping valleys lush with vines, framed by the spectacular Simonsberg mountain range, Stellenbosch is packed with some of the finest wineries in the world. Upon arrival we won't waste any time, heading to three wine tastings at three different farms, each renowned for their different drops. After time for lunch in Stellenbosch, we'll take a scenic drive through the Elgin Valley, where our accommodation - the elegant Wiledekrans Wine Estate - awaits. After check-in, we'll head out to the Elgin Railway market for dinner. Once an apple warehouse, this place is now a spectacular steampunk-style streetfood market, packed with incredible food and wine, as well as the bouncing backdrop of local live music. Then it's back to the estate to turn in and look forward to new adventures tomorrow...

DAY 2

Hermanus

After a tasty included breakfast this morning we’ll make our way towards Hermanus. This pretty little fishing town has a big reputation, thanks to its status as one of the best land-based whale watching destinations on the planet. Due to its popularity as a whale watching spot - hosting the Whale Festival every September - it’s also alive with great restaurants and bars. Before hitting up the town, we'll get out onto the water ourselves this morning, enjoying the opportunity to stand up paddle board and kayak along the Hermanus bay. Then we'll head to the town itself to stroll around and grab a no-doubt delicious lunch. 

Hemel En Aarde Valley

Then we'll head Hemel-en-Aarde Valley to soak up some beautiful views with more wine tasting.

Cape Town

After breakfast today we're headed to our Cape Canopy tour. This includes refreshments - including fresh farmstall pie - and a 4x4 ride out into the sweeping Elgin Valley. Then it's time for ziplining, as we soar through the valley in the company of eagles. After a scenic drive back to Cape Town - including some photo stops en-route - our trip comes to an end back at Mojo market. Anyone for a safari?
