We will travel a short journey to Stellenbosch, approximately 20 mins.
Start the tour off with a steaming hot beverage of your choice at our first wine farm of the day where we will wait in eager anticipation for the 1000 plus Indian Runner Ducks to be led past us as they go to work in the vineyards. This waddling workforce is essential to the farms pest-control, consuming a startling amount of snails and bugs on their daily patrols.
You will then be whisked away to another nearby wine estate for a wine tasting of their delectable award winning wines plus have the opportunity of stroking a few owls and taking pictures with them. Another highlight of this tour is you will also be able to hold an eagle (with a thick glove of course)! Birds of prey keep the farms ecosystem in balance, making it possible tonaturally control pests, without pesticides.Enjoy up-close-and-personal interactions with eagles, hawks, falcons, owls,kites, buzzards, snakes and lizards. Take part in heart-stopping falconrydisplays, where we fly birds to you.Kids will also enjoy our piglets, rabbits, tortoises, chickens and uniqueplayground.
A five minute drive to our next stop where you will be given an hour for lunch at a top Stellenbosch restaurant. Hudsons Restaurant boasts spectacular views of the Helderberg mountain and, partnered with their delicious food and their staffs passion for quality and service, the restaurant is arguably one of the best in the Stellenbosch winelands. Please note lunch is for your own account.
After lunch you will be treated to a visit to theBig Cats Park which offers a unique experience not to be found anywhere else along the Stellenbosch wine route, where one can both view and learn more about these majestic creatures that may well one day cease to exist in anything but our history books. Its a must-visit for any animal lover, and we look forward to grrrrr-eeting you soon!
After all that excitement we will end our tour with another wine tasting at Meerlust Estate which is long recognized for producing world-class wines, andhas been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeenth-century national monument.
