Wine Tasting

This tour will focus on the great wine South Africa produces (but don’t forget the food and breathtaking scenery). With some of the best wines in the world being produced just half an hour’s drive from Cape Town, it would be a disgrace not to spend some days sampling some of these fine beverages. The wine country has a long history and strong culture stretching from 1688. It’s hard to decide where to stop for a tasting; we’ll explore wineries in the Swartland, Paarl, Franschhoek and Hemel-en-Aarde Valley as well as Cape Town area. Fortunately we have time for more than two and we have a pretty good idea what you might like.

 Olive and Olive Oil Tasting

Foodies, assemble! If you have a sincere and unbridled love for all things delectable and delicious, then Het Vlock Kasteel is one Swartland destination that needs a space of honour at the top of our must-visit list! This is beautiful family farm in Riebeek Kasteel where you can revel in the discovery of more than 200 home-made products that have been developed and produced right there on the premises by the inimitable Ansie Vlok and her passionate team of artisans. We book with Ansie for a personal olive oil tasting on the stoep (patio) with a view that stretches for days!

 African Penguins

Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to one of the largest successful breeding colonies of African Penguin in the world. We’ll go and visit these fancy guys (dressed in tuxedos 🙂 in the quaint coastal town of Betty’s Bay in the Overberg. Stony Point Nature Reserve is home to a unique colony of African Penguins and offers us the chance to see these wonderful flightless birds up close. Walk the boardwalk through the colony and observe the penguins go about their daily activities in their natural habitat, without disturbing or disrupting them. The colony lies on the site of the old Waaygat Whaling Station, which was used to harvest and process whale meat in the early to mid 1900s. Remnants of the machinery and infrastructure for this long-defunct industry can still be found at the site.

Horse Riding

No reason for a long face if you are a horse riding fanatic. Again you’ll have different terrain to choose from and two of our favorites would definitely be a ride in the mountains at Hermanus or on the beach at Noordhoek.

Stand Up Paddleboarding

Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) is still a relatively young sport and gaining participants with great momentum. Learn to SUP with easy, progressive and fun SUP lessons in Cape Town on calm water or in the waves at Muizenberg. You will learn how to safely SUP in waves in the shallow beach break in Muizenberg, internationally recognized ideal spot for learning Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Surfing.

Boat Trips

If boat tripping floats your boat there are a few outings to choose from. Take a boat trip to the seal colony on Seal Island in scenic Hout Bay or experience a close encounter with the gentle giants of the ocean on an informative and educational whale watching trip in Hermanus.

Skydiving and Tandem Skydiving Jumps

Experience free-fall over one of the most scenic drop zones in the world. Start the experience with a short briefing, then enjoy a 20 minute plane flight to 10,000 feet, over the Swartland and Western Cape coastline. The leisurely, scenic plane flight comes to an end and the adrenaline starts to pump as you exit the plane with your Tandem Master and experience the rush of a 35 second free fall at 200km/h with a view of Table Mountain.

Tandem Paragliding

Cape Town is one of the most spectacular places in the world to paraglide with astonishing views of Lion’s Head, Table Mountain and the Cape Town area. Tandem paragliding instructional flights are a great way of getting into paragliding or just experiencing the joy of freeflight.

Whale Watching Charters (in season)

Hermanus has the best land-based whale watching in the world but you can also get closer and in their own environment by doing a whale watching boat trip… an amazing way to experience these ocean giants. We can’t control these beauties but they have been around in July so fingers crossed we’ll get to chance to see them up close.

Surfing and Surfing Lessons

South Africa is a surf mecca! There are many breaks en-route and whether you choose to travel with your own board or hire on the spot we will be sure to catch some waves. If you have never surfed before and you want to try it, there are more than a few places where lessons are on offer.

Guided Walks and Hikes

Throughout our trip there are beautiful walks, hikes and mountain treks you can explore. You’ll have the option to hike up Table Mountain (or take the cable car) and we go for an informative and historical city walk in Cape Town. 

San Guided Experience

Long before the first settlers arrived in South African, there were various groups of people who spread out sparsely across the land. The Khoisan, were skilled hunter-gatherers and nomadic farmers who lived off the land. In spite of their earliest presence in Southern Africa, they’re among the country’s most persecuted and forgotten people. During a tour the San will demonstrate their skills and share their ancient knowledge about oral history, tracking animals and identifying plants with you.

Kayaking

Explore the magic of our unique coastline with its abundant marine life up close and personal on a kayak in the company of an experienced guide. Glide across sparkling water while enjoying a view of the majestic mountain, sea cliffs and marine life.
