Description

Venture south for an action-packed 2-day tour of the scenic Cape Whale Route, which offers some of the best land-based whale watching in South Africa. You also enjoy wine tastings in the Stellenbosch and Franschhoek wine regions.

Day 1: After pick-up in a luxury minivan, take a relaxing and scenic ride into wine country. Visit a Kayamandi elder's home for a colourful slice of Xhosa culture as you sample traditional tastes. Continue your journey in the midst of the Stellenbosch Winelands as you experience some of the finest wines the region has to offer. Sample MCC at the estate where South African's first ever bubbly was produced.

Delight in wine and chocolate or optional biltong (South African cured meat) pairing. Explore the quaint French Huguenot town of Franschhoek and travel to and overnight near the southernmost tip of Africa – Cape Agulhas where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet.

Overnight at 3-star Mermaid Guesthouse or similar, Cape Agulhas

Day 2: Whilst the Big Five draw many visitors to Africa, on your second day of adventure, the Marine Big Five – whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and sharks – are the stars of the show, with cliff path hikes and the opportunity to go kayaking in the ocean. During whale season (June - November) you'll also have a chance to gaze upon enormous southern right whales from one of the best land-based whale watching sites in the world. Choose to either partake in optional Sea Kayak or seasonal Whale Watching cruise in search of marine wildlife.

Visit Stony Point Reserve in Betty’s Bay – home to one of the largest successful breeding colonies of African penguins in the world. These feathered entertainers always come dressed to the nines and are bound to waddle their way right into your heart. Learn about the conservation efforts of the reserve and have a peek into the many artificial penguin homes littered along the shores. End off your adventure with a delight for the senses as you drive along Clarence Drive, with dramatic twists along steep mountainsides, 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! Arrive back at your accommodation in Cape Town by late afternoon.
