Itinerary

  1. Day
    1
    Welcome to Cape Town
    Cape Town, South Africa

    You'll be met at Cape Town airport and transfer to the hotel in town. Later that afternoon you'll meet your group and head out for sundowners overlooking Camps Bay

  2. Day
    2
    Climb Table Mountain
    Cape Town, South Africa

    Today you'll get to explore Table Mountain. Shunning the cable car in favour of the more intrepid India Venster route (arguably the most scenic way up) you'll hike and scramble up the mountain, stopping to admire the views over Camps Bay and Robben Island. After time to explore the summit you'll head down the Skeleton Gorge to Kirstenbosch Gardens.

    Meals - Breakfast
  3. Day
    3
    Drive to iconic Cape Point
    Cape Point, South Africa

    Today the group will leave Cape Town after breakfast and drive via Camps Bay, Hout Bay and Chapman's Peak to the Cape Point Nature Reserve. This ruggedly beautiful area is home to the likes of springbok, baboon and ostrich. Enjoy the walk to the lighthouse and continue to the Cape of Good Hope where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans collide. Afterwards you'll cycle to Boulders Beach, home to South Africa's 3000-strong penguin colony. You'll check into a quayside bolthole in Simonstown later.

    Meals - Breakfast
  4. Day

    Kayak with penguins
    Boulders Beach , South Africa

    The day will start with an early walk to Simonstown harbour, then you'll kayak to Boulders Beach for another penguin encounter, this time on the water by kayak. Around lunchtime, you'll head to Stellenbosch, the heart of South Africa's wine country. The afternoon is yours. Stroll around the oak-lined streets in this buzzy university town. Or maybe you'll have some downtime in mind, and the pool of the Cultivar Guest Lodge could be just what's needed.

    Meals - Breakfast
  5. Day
    5
    Full day wine tasting trip
    Stellenbosch, South Africa

    There's a full day of wine tasting today, touring three estates. At the Waterford Estate, you'll pair the region's Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon with chocolate. Then it's on to Middelvlei to pair their wines with delicious boerebraai tapas. Finally, there's a cheese and wine pairing and cellar tour at the Jordan Estate.

    Meals - Breakfast
  6. Day
    6
    Hike through Jonkershoek Nature Reserve
    Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, South Africa

    Spend a day in the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, to the southeast of Stellenbosch. You'll follow a hiking trail through scenic mountains and fynbos, a heathland plants unique to South Africa's Cape regions. The reserve is home to leopards, honey badgers and baboons, although they're rather shy. Instead, you're more likely to spot kingfishers, eagles and agama lizards.

    For those looking for an adrenaline rush, there's the option of going kloofing for the day instead. It's the South African version of canyoning, following the Steenbras River through a canyon, abseiling, rock jumping and swimming in clear pools.

    This evening there's a traditional South African BBQ. It's the perfect opportunity to swap stories of the day's adventures.

    Meals - Breakfast, Dinner

    Time to head home
