* Day 1 Saturday

  • Pick-up at Cape Town International or hotel.
  • We visit the Neighbourgoods Market at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock. Here we’ll have a chance to explore the market and have breakfast. It’s Cape Town’s original gourmet market, with over 100 specialty traders, fine-food purveyors, organic  merchants, artisan goods, gourmet products, local farmers, seasonal items, plants & herbs, fresh produce, boutique wine estates, micro-breweries, and plenty more!
  • Guided tour of the Taal Monument in Paarl. This monument chronicles and represents South Africa’s linguistic history and offers an amazing view of the Cape winelands.
  • We have a wine tasting followed by a gourmet lunch at Jordan wine estate in Stellenbosch. The chef at this estate is George Jardine, one of South Africa’s best chefs and winner of many culinary awards. His cuisine focuses on local produce and showcases some of the best ingredients South Africa has to offer.
  • Walk through Dorp Street and a visit to the Village Museum in Stellenbosch. The historic centre of Stellenbosch and the quaint Village Museum offer a glimpse of what life was like in the early days of the colonial settlers.
  • We drive up Signal Hill right in the middle of Cape Town to enjoy the sunset. Here we’ll taste the first and one of the finest South African Méthode Cape Classique sparkling wines, the Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel.
  • We return to our 5-star guest house in Bantry Bay where we’ll have a real South African braai or barbecue.

 

* Day 2 Sunday

  • Pickup after breakfast at our guest house in Bantry Bay.
  • Visit to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens. The most beautiful garden in Africa. The Kirstenbosch Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world, majestically set against the eastern slopes of Cape Town’s Table Mountain.
  • Visit to Klein Constantia Wine Estate. The Constantia valley is the oldest wine route in the Cape. Klein Constantia has helped to reclaim its former glory by initiating the revival of its world-famous sweet wine, Vin de Constance. Klein Constantia's wines regularly receive accolades, both locally and internationally.
  • Lunch at La Colombe on the Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate. Chef Luke-Dale Roberts’ award-winning restaurant needs no introduction. It consistently ranks as as one of the top 20 restaurants in the world.
  • Visit to Hout Bay & Boat Trip to Seal Island. We take a boat trip to the Cape Fur Seal and Sea bird colony at Duiker Island, Hout Bay. Our boat is the only glass bottomed passenger launch in South Africa and has the unique attraction of two glass viewing ports at the bottom of the boat.
