Itinerary in brief:
- 3 nights Cape Town
- 2 nights Stellenbosch
- 2 nights Franschhoek
Day 1: Arrive Cape Town
On arrival in Cape Town you’ll be greeted and taken by private transfer to your hotel.
The rest of the day is at leisure for you to explore. Why not take the hop-on hop-off bus and explore the city? The bus stops at Table Mountain, so time your journey right and you could be enjoying spectacular views across the city at sunset.
Days 2 & 3: Cape Town
With 2 more full days to explore Cape Town, you’ll find plenty to entertain. Head over to Robben Island to see the place where Nelson Mandela was incarcerated and learn about South Africa’s recent history at the Apartheid museum. If you’re yearning for some downtime on the beach, be sure to visit Camps Bay; you’ll find great beaches, plenty of restaurants and bars for a quick glass of wine as you look out over the spectacular ocean views.
Your rental car will be delivered to your hotel on your second day here, giving you the freedom to explore even further afield if you wish.
Days 4 & 5: Cape Town to Stellenbosch
After breakfast, you’ll begin your drive from Cape Town into the wine region and the town of Stellenbosch. A student town full of funky art galleries, boutique gift shops and unique restaurants and bars, Stellenbosch is a great place to stroll around and enjoy a spot of lunch. A trip to the winelands of course wouldn’t be complete without some wine tasting, so be sure to book yourself onto a local tour. Speak to your consultant who will be happy to add this in for you.
Days 6 & 7: Stellenbosch to Franschhoek
After 2 nights in Stellenbosch it’s time to move on to your next stop, Franschhoek. This town is known for its fine dining and restaurants that are home to some of the best chefs in South Africa. Be sure to check out ‘Babylonstoren’, a working Cape Dutch farm. Here you can learn about wine and cheese making, stroll through the lush gardens and enjoy a delicious lunch in their greenhouse restaurant.
Day 8: Return to Cape Town
After breakfast make your way to Cape Town Airport to continue with your onward journey.
