Day tripping simply just doesn’t do South Africa’s Western Cape justice and, like all good tasting plates, this tour delivers the very best of the region – from Cape Point, Winelands, Whale Coast and to the Tip of Africa; Cape Agulhas. You'll taste local MCC and pair wines with biltong and chocolate in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek regions, enjoy an optional kayak among marine life, watch majestic Southern Right Whales (seasonal), meet penguins at Betty’s Bay and meander along Clarence Drive.
The history, hospitality and the sheer diversity of flora, fauna and cultures in the Western Cape, together with a landscape that dramatically transforms with every curve of the road will naturally wow… You’ll be amazed at what you’ll find beyond Cape Town.
