While distinctively African, the Cape also has touches of Europe, partly influenced by its Mediterranean climate and by generations of Europeans who sought new life here farming and nurturing vineyards. All the family will enjoy Cape Town; in one of our world’s iconic settings. Take in a game of cricket or rugby, swing your golf club, go up Table Mountain, shop, eat out, swim or visit Robben island. There is so much to see and do.
The Cape is eminently driveable and continually scenic as you wend your way through mountain passes, along glorious stretches of coastline and through pretty towns and villages. Pause in the wineland valleys for delicious meals and fascinating strolls through quaintly historic Stellenbosch. Head south around the mountainous Peninsula for penguin spotting and swimming before setting off for Hermanus in search of Southern Right whales.
From there the Garden Route runs on and on past beaches where the surfing is spectacular to nature reserves where the hills forests and winding rivers are a joy for walkers, horseback riders and thrill seekers. At the end of the Route are some of Africa’s finest malaria free wildlife reserves where you can track down leopard and lion and enjoy superb accommodation between thrilling safaris.
