Know More about this tour

Day 1: Cape Town - Stellenbosch - Franschhoek - Cape Aghulas
You'll be picked up in the morning by luxury minivan before entering wine country and the famous wine routes of Stellenbosch. Visit some of the popular wine estates that are scattered around the Western Cape towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Sample some of the countrys most acclaimed wines and ports, pairing them with locally produced cheeses and chocolate. In Franschhoek, youll have time to spend at leisure: its a perfect place for lunch in what many consider to be South Africas gourmet capital.

From Franschhoek, your tour continues back down to the coast to our overnight stop to Cape Agulhas. Visit the nearby stone marker at shore indicating the most southern tip of Africa a geographic extreme where the continent meets with the mighty Atlantic and Indian Oceans. A graveyard of ancient shipwrecks along this legendary 'Cape of Storms' is a reminder of many tragic and mysterious tales of failed expeditions.
Spend the night here at leisure, and your guide can show you the best spot to enjoy local meals.

Overnight in Cape Agulhas area at Cape Agulhas Backpackersor 3-star Mermaid Guesthouse or 4-star Agulhas Country Lodge

Day 2: Cape Aghulas - Hermanus - Bettys Bay -Cape Town (B)
Either rise at the crack of dawn to go shark cage diving (own expense)or if youd prefer a 'drier' option, hop aboard an Eco Cruise as you set out to spot some of the Marine Big Five (own expense).
Or sleep a bit later and depart slightly later to visit the popular whale-watching town of Hermanus. If you choose to explore Hermanus, youll have more time here independently. Perhaps enjoy some land-based whale watching along the famous cliff footpaths. Whale season from approximately June to November.

If an adrenaline-pumping cage diving experience with sharks is more your thing, then youll set off by boat from the town of Gansbaai for a 1.5-hour cage dive with South Africas notorious great white sharks. All equipment is provided; just bring your bathing suit! After the dive, you'll also have some time to spot whales along the coast when collecting the group from Hermanus.

On the way back to Cape Town, you'll pass the famous Betty's Bay penguin reserve to get up close and personal with a colony of penguins in their natural habitat, before one final last stop at Clarence Drive viewpoint.
