What You Can Expect
After approximately 30 minutes, arrive at the Cape of Good Hope Reserve, part of Table Mountain National Park, for a leisurely walk with your guide. Following craggy stone paths along the headland, wander over to the Cape Point lighthouse to see the wild Atlantic waves lapping on the cliffs.
Continue to Cape Point, the narrow finger of land that marks South Africa’s southeastern tip, and with your guide walk through the beautiful Cape Point Nature Reserve. Keep an eye out for the wildlife that roams free along the coastal paths, like Ostrich, Antelope and lizards, to name a few!
Hop back on board your luxury minivan and relax on the journey north to Constantia Valley, known as Cape Town’s vineyard. On the way, pass the beach resorts of Fish Hoek and Kalk Bay, as well as picture-perfect villages like St James and Simon’s Town.
Stop at Boulders Beach, famously home to a large colony of African penguins, to have a look around independently. Entrance to the penguin reserve is at your own expense, but the free walkways next to the reserve also offer great viewing platforms for seeing them.
Arriving in Constantia Valley in the late afternoon, head straight to Groot Constantia -- a historical wine estate that was founded in 1685. As fine as it is old, the estate is a joy to explore and you’ll do just that on a group tour of its fascinating wine cellars. End your tour on a high note with a wine-tasting session before returning to Cape Town.
This was a fantastic tour. I would recommend it to anyone. Our guide, Gerhald, was excellent, providing a very informative and enjoyable day. As there was only the two of us, he even customised the tour a little to suit us, as he wanted to ensure we had a great time. And we did.
My wife and I were the only persons on this trip. Our driver-guide was excellent: steady driver, friendly, attentive and knowledgeable guide, but also someone who knew when to leave you space to enjoy the many amazing sights offerd by this trip. It was a beautiful morning when we set off from Cape Town, and as a wee bonus we went up Signal Hill, below the Lion's Head, for some phenomenal views all around, from Table Mountain round to Sea Point and out to Robben island. A sea-trip to view the seals in Houts Bay was good even if we were a bit overwhelmed by a large Chinese party also on board - luckily they were a bit overwhelmed in turn by the swell of the sea. On to an ostrich farm via Chapman's Peak Drive, from whence amazing views of Houts Bay. After entertaining the ostriches we made our way on to Cape Point, where quite apart from the amazing site itself, we had an excellent al fresco lunch well served by Kenneth as birds like starlings zoomed around us. We took in the Cape of Good Hope (not the same as Cape Point) before making our way round into False Bay and Simonstown, with its slumbering penguins lurking in the bush beside the board-walk. Then it was on to the lovely Groot Constantia, the oldest wine farm in the Cape. A good tour here, and some interesting wine varieties sampled. Then finally home to the door at the Underberg in Tamboerskloof, tired but exhilarated by an amazingly varied and enjoyable day, and a long-held ambition fulfilled.
