Cape Town to Cape Agulhas:
Today you will get picked up from your selected Cape Town or Stellenbosch accommodation.
On day 1 you will travel from Cape Town towards the tranquil Overberg region. Sample some of the best wines in the region at various wine estates in the Stellenbosch and Paarl winelands. Surprise your taste buds with a wine and cheese pairing, featuring delicious home-made artisanal cheeses at Fairview. Then, sweeten things up with a decadent, carefully chosen, wine and chocolate pairing experience at Muratie Wine Estate.
With the fragrance of fine wines lingering on your palate, you’ll have time to explore the charming streets of Franschhoek, dotted with restaurants, cafés, galleries and quaint shops before taking in the views of the mountainous Overberg region as you travel to Cape Agulhas.
Hermanus to Cape Agulhas to Cape Town:
Day 2 is just as exciting with the opportunity to see the "marine big 5": whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and sharks. The braver guests can choose a shark cage-dive or opt for a drier option on an eco-cruise to spot some of the marine life.
Then, walk the cliffs of Hermanus as you search for the southern right whale and its hefty counterparts during whale season. The next stop are the boardwalks of the Stony Point Reserve in Betty’s Bay, home to one of the largest successful breeding colonies of African penguin in the world. Finally, a delight for the senses as you drive along Clarence Drive, with dramatic twists along steep mountainside, the perfect vantage point to view the vast False Bay. On a clear day, you can even see waves crashing on the tips of the Cape Peninsula.
