On the way, stop at Cape Point, a nature reserve within Table Mountain National Park, encompassing rich flora and fauna alongside rocky cliffs. Here, take a walk along its headland to the lighthouse and see the wild waves of the Atlantic Ocean crashing against Africa’s southwestern tip.
After exploring these dramatic coastal spots on the Atlantic coast, head inland to the town of Stellenbosch, surrounded by soaring mountains, where you’ll check into your accommodation . The rest of the evening is then yours to spend as you wish.

Next, hop back in your minivan and visit some of the popular wine estates that are scattered around the Western Cape towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek. Sample some of the country’s most acclaimed wines and ports, pairing them with locally produced cheese and even chocolate. In Franschhoek, you’ll also enjoy free time for lunch (own expense).

Visiting Hermanus? After an approximate 1.5-hour journey, you’ll have three hours to see the town independently. If you’re visiting during whale-watching season (June to November), you might be able to spot whales from land.
