Cape Town Highlights Tour: This combination tour offers the highlights of Cape Point and the Cape Winelands. This area is renowned internationally for its spectacular natural scenery. Craggy Mountain peaks contrast with endless ocean vistas and lush green valleys. No matter where you travel in the Cape there are historical and modern sites and fabulous activities. On this tour we will journey to the edge of Africa and then explore the heart of the mountainous Cape Winelands.
Our tour begins with a scenic drive along the Atlantic coast, passing through the cosmopolitan suburb of Sea Point and Camps Bay with its glorious views of the Twelve Apostles, which are part of the Table Mountain range. From here we travel to the Cape Point Nature Reserve, comprising over 17 300 acres of indigenous fauna and flora. Here we have the opportunity to see a variety of wildlife that includes baboons, rhebok, Cape Mountain zebra, bontebok and the elusive eland. The reserve is also one of the world’s largest breeding grounds for tortoises. Bird-watchers, too, will find many fine species to observe.
The majestic coastline offers drama worthy of being called “Nature's Greatest Show”. We'll be able to see the union of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans (as per legend), and may even feel the brisk wind that is dubbed the “Cape Doctor” for its presumed curative powers. Following the coastline along False Bay, we'll continue to the Stellenbosch Winelands. Stellenbosch is an architectural jewel with a gracious blend of 18-century Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian buildings. We then head for a wine tasting session in the Stellenbosch area before returning to Cape Town.
