DAY 1

Welcome to Cape Town

Sawubona! A Zulu tribe greeting meaning I see you, you are important to me and I value you.

As your plane descends towards Cape Town International Airport, you’ll be treated to stunning aerial views of the city and Table Mountain dominates the skyline.

DAY 2

Cape Point

Cape Point is a captivating natural landmark located at the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula. It marks the point where the Atlantic and Indian Oceans converge. As you leave the city behind, you’ll follow the winding coastal road, offering panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the rugged cliffs on the other. Along the way, you’ll pass through charming coastal towns.

We stop for lunch at a winery nestled in the picturesque Cape Point region. It’s known for producing exceptional cool-climate wines that benefit from the maritime influence of the nearby Atlantic Ocean. The vineyard’s dramatic location, with rolling vineyards set against a backdrop of ocean vistas and towering mountains, creates a stunning setting.

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Let this afternoon of luxury and indulgence be a celebration of all things radiant and resplendent. Immerse yourself in the world of diamonds, sip champagne, and explore the possibilities that await you in this captivating showroom.

Constantia Valley and Table Mountain

Take a guided wine tasting walk through the Constantia Valley where lush vineyards meet historic elegance. This picturesque route, the oldest wine-producing region in South Africa, weaves through rolling hills and centuries-old estates with charming Cape Dutch architecture.

Our final stop for the day, Table Mountain, our iconic flat topped mountain that looms majestically over Cape Town. This natural wonder is not only a geological marvel, but also a symbol of the city itself. We ascend its summit via cable car offering breathtaking panoramic views of Cape Town, the surrounding coastline, and the ocean beyond. The mountain’s unique flora and fauna add to its allure. Fantastic photo opportunity.

Tucked away in the Cape Winelands, Franschhoek is known as the Cape’s food and wine capital. Galleries and antique shops fill the tree lined main road and vineyards established more than 300 years ago cascade over the hills just outside town. The Huguenot Memorial Museum honours the area’s French settlers, who arrived in the 17th and 18th centuries. Explore the village at leisure followed by lunch at a wine estate, hosted by a Chef, to taste authentic South African dishes and learn more about the food heritage while sharing the meal.
