Your Itinerary

Day 1 to 4 - Cape Town

Arrive into Cape Town where you will be met and transferred to one of our excellent Cape Town hotels for a four night stay. Explore Africa’s most cosmopolitan city with its fusion of European and African culture at your leisure. You will find great bars and restaurants as well as colourful districts such as Bo Kaap. Table Mountain forms a spectacular backdrop and a trip up on the cable car provides fantastic views.

On your last day in Cape Town, head out of the city to experience the wild and rugged coastal scenery, quaint towns and the famous penguin colony on the Cape of Good Hope day tour. This fully escorted tour will allow you to sit back and enjoy the sites which also includes the famous Kirstenbosch gardens before returning to the city.

Day 5 to 6 - Stellenbosch

Once your car has been delivered to your hotel, it’s time to drive yourself inland through beautiful mountain scenery to South Africa’s world-renowned wine region for a two-night stay at the historic Town. Stellenbosch is famous for its surrounding vineyards, excellent restaurants and historic Dutch buildings which you will have time to explore over the next two days.

Day 7 - Hermanus

Bid Stellenbosch farewell as you head for Hermanus on the coast. This charming seaside town is best known as a prime viewing spot to see migrating whales during the months of June to October basking out to sea, sometimes as close as 50 metres away.

Day 8 - Farewell

En route back to Cape Town, enjoy the beautiful scenery before returning the car at the airport.
