7 Day Escorted Tour Itinerary

Cape, Whales and Winelands Tour

Wine drinking and whale watching

You'll start your tour in Cape Town, an eclectic melting pot of culture, awarded the accolade of 'best city in the world' many times – and for good reason. As stylish as it is vibrant, experience lush botanical gardens, Cape Dutch architecture, exceptional cuisine and many historical attractions. You can't visit Cape Town without taking a cable car to the summit of Table Mountain to enjoy far-reaching views over the city, Cape Peninsula and Atlantic Ocean.

Next up on your tour is Stellenbosch in the verdant Western Cape, one of the most popular and visited areas of South Africa. Here you'll uncover the region's rich heritage while enjoying delicious wines and stunning rural scenery, all just a stone's throw from Cape Town.

You'll end your holiday with the opportunity to spot Southern right whales in Hermanus, the pretty fisherman's village on the southern coast of the Western Cape (from June to December).

This comprehensive tour has been carefully composed to give you a flavour of South Africa's contrasts, from city to coast. Speak to one of our Destination Specialists if you'd like to find out more, or would like a tailor made itinerary for your South Africa getaway.
