Day 1
You will be met at Cape Town Airport and transferred to your hotel in this beautiful city, within sight of Table Mountain.
 
Check in and relax in your magnificent surroundings.
Day 2
Today is free for independent sightseeing in Cape Town.
 
We recommend you purchase a day pass onboard the convenient Hop-Off Bus, which stops at all Cape Town’s key sights and beaches. The "Red Route" bus stops at the Table Mountain base station, where you can buy a ticket to ascend by cable car and enjoy one of the world’s most famous views. Continue to Camps Bay beach and the many attractions of the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
Day 3
At leisure to relax and explore the "Mother City" of Cape Town.
 
Many optional activities are available in this beautiful city. You can visit Robben Island where Nelson Mandela was imprisoned (advance booking essential in season) and explore the vibrant Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.
 
You can visit world famous Kirstenbosch Gardens or simply relax on golden Camps Bay beach – the choice is yours.
Day 4
This morning you will be collected from your Cape Town hotel between 7.30 and 8.15 for your small group tour along the beautiful Garden Route.
 
We leave Table Mountain behind and travel along scenic Route 62, passing through the small towns of Montagu and Robertson and stop for lunch in Barrydale (own account). With its vastly changing landscapes, this route will take you from the mountains and vineyards of the Cape to the semi-arid Karoo, with its ever-changing scenery. We stop for wine tasting at Calitzdorp, the port capital of South Africa.
 
Arriving in Oudtshoorn, we visit an Ostrich Farm to learn more about these huge flightless birds and their magnificent plumage. Afterwards there is time to freshen and relax before your included dinner.
 
On escorted group tours please note that for operational reasons it is sometimes necessary to substitute one hotel with another of similar quality. Porterage of one suitcase is included.
Day 5
After breakfast, we will visit the famous Cango Caves. This vast series of underground halls and caverns was formed over 20 million years ago in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains. The caves, which extend for over 3 miles, contain spectacular stalagmites and stalactites and offer relatively easy access.
 
Leaving Oudtshoorn we drive over the spectacular Outeniqua Pass to George and Wilderness.Enjoy photo opportunities and unspoilt views and lunch (own account) as we drive along the scenic Garden Route to Knysna.
 
Weather permitting, here we enjoy a sunset Oyster Cruise on the lagoon in this area of outstanding natural beauty, before dinner at the Knysna Waterfront.
Day 6
After breakfast we leave Knysna and head for the historic harbour town of Mossel Bay.
 
Here we visit the Dias Museum which has a life-sized replica of the ship that the Portuguese explorer Bartholemew Dias sailed when he became the first European to set foot on South African soil and erected a cross here. At the centre of the complex is the famous Post Office Tree, an ancient Milkwood where early sailors left mail for homebound ships.
 
Enjoy lunch at The Point (own account) before continuing to our malaria free Private Game Reserve. Complete the day with an afternoon Big Five game drive, against the backdrop of the Langeberg Mountains. In the evening enjoy an included outdoor boma dinner, with a tasty array of traditional cuisine.
Day 7
Rise early this morning, when game viewing conditions are at their best, for another open top game drive in your Garden Route Game Lodge.
 
We then drive via the historic town of Swellendam, the third oldest in South Africa with some wonderful Cape Dutch architecture, and Bredasdorp (with lunch for own account) to the small fishing village of Arniston. With its white limestone cliffs, giant sand dunes, pristine beaches, stunning nature reserves and aquamarine waters of the Indian Ocean, this stretch of land is aptly named the Whale Coast.
 
Check into your hotel and relax before enjoying an included dinner.
Day 8
Our day begins with a visit to rugged and windswept Cape Agulhas, the southernmost tip of Africa where the cool Atlantic meets the warm Indian Ocean. Here we visit the Cape Agulhas Lighthouse Museum, the second oldest in the country still operating today.
 
We continue to the small seaside village of Hermanus, with lunch en route (own account). From July to November, southern right and humpback whales come here to breed and this is considered the best location for land-based whale watching in the world.
 
We return to Cape Town travelling along the False Bay coast with its panoramic views of Cape Point and Table Mountain, with drop off at your hotel in the late afternoon.
Day 9
Today we recommend an optional full day tour to the beautiful Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve, where you may see baboons, ostrich and perhaps even dolphins or whales in season (July/November).
  
Your tour travels through Hout Bay and along spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive to the Cape Point peninsula, returning via Simons Town, Fish Hoek, Constantia and Kirstenbosch Gardens. This is a scenic tour of the whole Cape Peninsula, with the optional opportunity of visiting the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.

Today we recommend an optional full day tour to the renowned Stellenbosch Winelands, travelling through the scenic Franschhoek Valley where a handful of French Huguenot refugees started South Africa’s now famous wine industry.
 
Explore the historic university town of Stellenbosch and several wine estates on this famous wine route, which stretched from Paarl through to Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Enjoy a cellar tour and some wine tasting, before returning to Cape Town in the late afternoon.
