Day1Welcome to Cape TownCape 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
Day2Climb Table MountainCape 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.
Day3Drive to iconic Cape PointCape 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.
Day4Kayak with penguinsBoulders 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.
Day5Full day wine tasting tripStellenbosch, 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.
Day6Hike through Jonkershoek Nature ReserveJonkershoek 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.
Day7Surf the dunes on a sandboarding adventureAtlantis Dunes, South Africa
This morning will be spent sandboarding at the Atlantis Dunes, with full instruction and equipment provided. There's also the option to try quad biking here. Then it's back to Cape Town, after a late lunch at Bloubergstrand where you'll get a great view of Table Mountain.
This evening, there's a trans-African food experience at Gold Restaurant complete with live entertainment.
Day8Time to head homeCape Town, South Africa
On your final day, the choice is yours. A township tour? A visit to Robben Island to see where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated. Or perhaps just spending a little more time around the V&A Waterfront?
Grand Daddy Hotel
Funky boutique hotel with rooftop bar and outdoor cinema
Occupying an enviable position in the heart of the action on Cape Town's Long Street, the Grand Daddy Hotel is a different take on a typical hotel experience. Don't leave without spending time at the rooftop Airstream Trailer Park.
Simonstown Quayside Hotel
Elegant waterfront hotel in Simon's Town
A bright and breezy hotel on the water's edge with views over False Bay and the Simon's Kloof Mountains beyond.
