Start your day by driving along the rugged Atlantic coastline with its towering mountains and white sandy beaches. Soon, you will arrive in Hout Bay, the historical harbour and fishing point, overlooked by the impressive Sentinal peak. From here, you will begin the spectacular coastal drive along the world-famous Chapmans Peak Road. This road hugs the near vertical mountain face between Hout Bay and Noordhoek.
Arriving at the Cape of Good Hope Nature reserve, where you will make your way down to Cape Point. This rocky outcrop was known as the Cape of Storms due to the number of vessels that where shipwrecked along the coastline. You will have the opportunity to walk to the old lighthouse at the Point.
Returning from Cape Point you will follow the coastal road along False Bay, through the historic navy base, Simons Town. You will then pass through the popular holiday resort, of Muizenburg before return to the Cape Town City Centre.
On your return to Cape Town you’ll pass the beautiful scenery of Simon's Town, Fish Hoek and the popular holiday resort of Muizenberg.
Stellenbosch Wine Tour from Cape Town (afternoon)
On a walking tour around the city center, your guide will tell you about some of the history of this ancient city and explain how it came to be synonymous with great South African wine. Admire the abundant Cape Dutch and Georgian architecture as you walk along Stellenbosch’s leafy, tree-lined streets. The city is known locally as Eikestad, meaning ‘city of oaks,’ because of the numerous oak trees that line its secluded streets.
Continue to one of the nearby historic wine estates for a wine-tasting session with your expert guide. The exact winery visited will change depending on availability on the day of your tour, but possible estates include Charmony, KWV Wines, Merelust Estate or Uitkyk Estate. Sample local Pinotage, a red wine grape that prides itself on being South Africa’s signature variety, and learn about the Stellenbosch wine region’s Mediterranean climate and different soils that help create its highly regarded fine wine.
After an hour at the wine estate, hop back on board your luxury coach for the scenic journey back to Cape Town.
