We make our way along the Atlantic seaboard passing Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton as well as Table Mountain’s towering Twelve Apostles. Bakoven and Llandudno, with their ghostly shipwrecks, are also fantastic sights on the way to the fishing village of Hout Bay.
From here we navigate the 114 curves of 600m-high Chapman’s Peak Drive. We then explore the Cape of Good Hope section of the Table Mountain National Park, home to fabulous birds and very special fauna, such as Cape mountain zebra, bontebok and the charismatic Cape baboon. Climb (or ride the world’s first environmentally friendly funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to capture the magical vistas of False Bay.
We then head along the coast to Boulders Beach for a close-up encounter with the African Penguins before lunch.
Continue along the coastline towards the Cape Winelands while enjoying breath-taking views over False Bay. Wine estates visited will vary according to client preferences. Nearby Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second-oldest town, provides a glimpse of classic 17th-century Cape style, with a chance to browse quaint Dorp Street and the many museums, galleries and shops.
