Day 2: Golf
The Milnerton Golf Course is one of Cape Town’s most spectacular golf courses, with views of Table Mountain over the bay, and squeezed between the Atlantic Ocean and a wetland/lagoon that often has flamingos treading the mud for food. It is an easy walk, with wide fairways. If you can stay out of the bunkers, you have a chance of getting a good score.
Day 3: Peninsula Tour Full Day
After breakfast we embark on a tour of the Peninsula. The scenic drive takes us via the Atlantic Seaboard past Clifton and Camps Bay, the Twelve Apostles and Llandudno to Hout Bay. From there we go via the spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive towards the rural village of Noordhoek. On our way to Cape Point, keep your eyes peeled for animals roaming in the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, from antelope, zebra, ostriches to baboons. We continue towards the other side of the Peninsula, past the quaint towns of Sea Point, Kalk Bay and Muizenberg, with an option to view the penguin colony at Boulders. From there we cut through the beautiful suburbs and vineyards of Constantia to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. We return to your hotel late in the afternoon/early evening.
Day 4: Wine Tour
The winelands of the Cape is not just famous for its world-class wines, it’s also highly rated for the beauty of its surrounds. Patch-work vineyards creep up the slopes of soaring mountains, and the white-washed Cape Dutch manors add elegance and sophistication. We visit 3 main towns that form the heart of the winelands: Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek, for a day of exploring, wine and cheese tasting. You’ll get time to stroll through Stellenbosch to look at historical architecture in Dorp Street and De Braak. We’ll have a wine tasting at a wine estate, go for a cellar tour and have a cheese tasting. Afterwards we’ll drive through Paarl, a beautiful, tranquil town with lots of historical interest, go for a wine tasting at a local estate and view Nelson Mandela’s former prison (Victor Verster). Then it’s on to the spectacular town of Franschhoek with its soaring mountains and French ambiance. You’ll enjoy a wine and biltong pairing and if you want to, visit the Huguenot Memorial. From there it’s back to Cape Town over the scenic Helshoogte pass.
