Hi, hoi, hola, hallo

Safari experiences that you will not find with any other travel company. We know Africa best and will get you to the right place & time to enjoy the greatest shows on Earth!

Why visit the Cape Winelands?

Many vineyards were planted here hundreds of years ago, and the historic estates pay tribute to a rich history - with a blend of Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture. Expect some of the world’s finest wines, magnificent scenery and mouth-watering meals under ancient oak trees. In addition to wine tastings, visitors can sample the area’s delicious locally made chocolate, cheeses, charcuterie and olives.

The Cape Winelands are to be found on the Cape Peninsula and beyond, a mere 20-minute drive from the Mother City, and others an up to 2-hour scenic drive away. Famous wine areas include Constantia, Stellenbosch, Wellington, Paarl, Robertson and Franschhoek (the gourmet capital of South Africa and home to a handful of the country's top restaurants, and one of the world's top 100).

There are daily scheduled tours with guides to the Cape Winelands, offering specific themes such as food and wine pairings and the historical background of regions and estates. You can also do your own thing, armed with a rental car and brochures from your hotel or guesthouse.

The Cape Winelands is an easy day trip from Cape Town, but if you've got the time, we highly recommend spending a night or two in these beautiful and romantic surroundings.

The Cape Winelands has the same climate as Cape Town and can be paired with Cape Town experiences. Refer to our Cape Town page for more information.

Why us

We live here, in Africa, and have been doing this since 1991. Travel in Africa is about knowing when and where to go, and with whom. A few weeks too early / late or a few kilometers off course and you could miss the greatest show on Earth. And wouldn’t that be a pity?
