This fantastic combination tour offers the highlights of Cape Point and the Cape Winelands.
The 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 travel to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, comprising over 17,300 acres of indigenous fauna and flora. Here you 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”. You'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, you’ll continue to the Stellenbosch Winelands, a magical place with spectacular scenery and a rich history dating back centuries. Stellenbosch is an architectural jewel with a gracious blend of 18th Century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings. Stellenbosch town is known locally as Eikestad, meaning “city of oaks” because of the numerous oak trees that line its secluded streets. Head for a wine tasting session at one of the historic wine estates in the Stellenbosch area before continuing on the scenic journey back to Cape Town.
Please note: The tour might include a trip back to Cape Town to collect additional guests for the second half of the tour. The tour may be operated in reverse direction.
