COAST TO COUNTRY TOURS:
Winelands Tours: We have so many beautiful vineyards in various areas, I wish I could offer to take you to see and taste many different types of wines but this would be impossible to do in 1 day!
What I like to offer is 3 different wine farms in 1 day in Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl! We also taste cheeses and have lunch at one of the farms! It is a very relaxing day in wine country! If you have particular wine farm that you would prefer to visit please let me know so it can be arranged! For an interesting twist why not try horse back riding through one of the many beautiful vineyards in the Franschhoek valley, or a picnic style lunch is also an option from many farms if you want to embrace nature and relax while enjoying some delicious wine?
Cape Peninsula Tour: This is a lovely day out getting to see our beautiful peninsula including a trip up Table Mountain (weather permitting) a scenic and breathtaking drive along our coast line from Sea Point, Clifton, Bantry Bay, Camps Bay and through to Hout Bay a possible boat trip, (weather permitting) then we drive on one of our most beautiful mountain passes called Chapman’s Peak and visit Cape Point Nature reserve. The most south western point is Cape of Good Hope! We spend about 2 hours exploring Cape Point Nature Reserve as it is over 7500 hectares.
Then a visit to the penguin colony at Boulders Beach, after which we shall stop in a lovely little naval town called Simon’s Town. Then we drive through Fishhoek, Kalk bay and Muizenburg all of which are quaint coastal towns, stopping at points of interest along the way. We then take the scenic drive through Constantia and make our way home! This promises to be a full day of sight seeing and lots of beautiful photos
West Coast Day Trip: Just a short 45 min drive from the guest house you could be on a game farm viewing animals such as: Giraffe, Wildebeest, Eland, Bontebok, Gemsbok/Oryx, Cape Zebra, Cheetah and Lion. This promises to be a wonderful day out in nature with experienced wild life rangers driving you through the sanctuary on 4x4 vehicles! Plenty opportunity to take photos of wild life up close and personal, we then drive to a nearby coastal town for light lunch at one of the beachfront restaurants, West Coast style!
Half day City Tour: This is a tour to help introduce you to Cape Town city centre, we will visit the oldest building in South Africa, the Castle after which we take a walk through the Company Gardens where Jan Van Riebeek first planted vegetables and grape vines to trade with the passing ships in the mid 1600’s. We also can visit the oldest museum in South Africa which is at the top of the Company Gardens. We walk past the houses of parliament, and St. Georges Cathedral.
Next stop, the very colourful Bo Kaap where our earliest slaves lived back in the late 1700’s! We walk through the centre of town to the very colourful Green Market Square which is an African market where one can bargain with the locals for curios, African jewellery and clothing!
A trip up Table Mountain is a must, weather permitting of course, and if weather does not play along on the day I will take you to Lions Head to enjoy the views from the parking lot, which are breathtaking!
This tour can be added to a helicopter trip, boast cruise in the waterfront or visit to the Aquarium or a Robben Island tour, tickets can be purchased at the Waterfront the duration of this tour is 3 to 4 hours.
