Day 1
Fly overnight to Cape Town.
Day 2
Arrive in Cape Town and collect a hire car OR be met by one of our representatives. Spend three nights in "The Mother City". Cape Town has an amazing range of hotels to choose from, from grand, luxury hotels to intimate guesthouses and B&Bs. In and around the city are a huge number of attractions and excursions which will comfortably fill your time!
Day 3
Perhaps start your exploration with Robben Island and the V&A Waterfront.
Day 4
Table Mountain is a must for most people, and a historical tour of the city is always interesting. There are also many excellent restaurants in Cape Town, and we’ll happily make recommendations and reservations for you.
Day 5
Drive over Chapman's Peak Drive to the Cape Peninsula, maybe choosing to go to Simon's Town and the penguins at Boulder's Beach. Spend three nights on the Peninsula.
Day 6
Make full use of a day to really explore Cape Point. With a full day you can visit not just Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope, but some of the many, small, beautiful beaches in the area and take the time to walk through the unusual and interesting fynbos vegetation.
Day 7
Maybe relax today on Llandudno Beach.
Day 8
A beautiful drive up the Peninsula and over to the Winelands, your base for three nights. The Winelands is another area with gorgeous hotels to choose from; there’s also a large number of superb restaurants – we’d be happy to help you choose one or two to try, and reserve you tables there.
Day 9
A tour of the Winelands with Pietman Retief, one of our friendly, charismatic and incredibly knowledgeable wine guides, is an absolute must!
Day 10
Continue to explore the Winelands on your own, maybe visiting Camberley or trying Waterford's Chocolate & Wine pairings.
Day 11
Take the spectacular coastal road to the Whale Coast, where you spend two nights. Choose from cliff-top guesthouses or intimate hotels to stay in.
Day 12
In season (July – November), head out to get a close-up view of the whales.
Day 13
Drive into the Overberg, your final stop of two nights. You could decide to stay in the pretty town of Swellendam, or perhaps in a converted fisherman’s cottage in the De Hoop Nature Reserve.
Day 14
Explore De Hoop Nature Reserve.
Day 15
A leisurely drive back to Cape Town airport, where you drop the car and fly home overnight.

The Cape Region is an integral part of any trip to South Africa, and its attractions are so plentiful that it is worth spending significant amounts of time here to really get to know it. There is cosmopolitan Cape Town with all its history and amazing location, and the Cape Peninsula, one of the most beautiful, interested and underrated parts of the country. Only slightly further a field are the mountains, vineyards, stunning vintages and gorgeous restaurants of the Winelands and the steep cliffs of the Whale Coast that play host to southern rights and humpbacks in season. Rounding things off, head to De Hoop Nature Reserve: pretty landscapes, good wildlife and barely another soul around.
