What to expect?
Your Jewel of Africa Safaris tour guide will meet you at Cape Town Airport or anywhere in Cape Town as you start your amazing adventure begins! The day will be devoted to exploring the City of Cape Town. Stops will include the Company’s Gardens, the Cape Town Castle, Signal Hill and Camps Bay. After time for lunch in Camps Bay, you will make your way to the top of Table Mountain with the cable car. From Table Mountain, spectacular views of the city, the Peninsula and Robben Island will leave you in awe.
You will have the opportunity to enjoy dinner at one of the various excellent restaurants the V&A Waterfront has to offer. Please let your guide know where you would like to eat for him/her to make the reservations.
Depart after an early morning breakfast for Houtbay. Here you will embark on a 45-minute boat trip to Duiker Island to visit a huge seal colony. The extremely skilled skipper will guide the boat to almost touching distance of the thousands of seals feeding and playing in the stunning turquoise waters.
Leaving Houtbay behind, embark on a breath-taking drive, known as the Chapman's Peak Drive; arguably the most scenic drive in the world! This drive hugs the near-vertical face of Chapman's Peak, from Houtbay to Noordhoek. Cut into the face of the mountain between 1915 and 1922, the road was at that time regarded as a major feat of engineering.
The road leads to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point. In the nature reserve we visit Cape Point, where the stormy waters of the Atlantic are met by the calming influence of the Indian Ocean. On our way to Cape Town a visit is also made to Boulders Beach, an ideal vantage point to watch the local colony of African penguins.
We leave Cape Town behind and take a 40-minute drive to the Cape Winelands where we devote some time to exploring the town of Franschhoek. The French Huguenots brought their knowledge of viticulture with them and, upon receiving land from the Dutch East India Company; many vineyards were established and are today still producing some of the world's finest wines. After lunch, we will visit one of the local wine estates, where we will sample the fine wines they produce.
Simon van der Stel founded Stellenbosch in 1679; the second oldest town in South Africa. The town became known as "the City of Oaks" due to the large number of oak trees that were planted to line the streets. Spend some time to explore this gem before visiting one of the famous wine estates situated in the area.
We will visit a total of 3 wine estates before we make our way to Hermanus.
The beautiful coastal town of Hermanus is famous for whale watching. Wedged between the mountain and the sea, Hermanus has been rated by the World Wildlife Fund as one of the twelve best whale watching locations in the world, and it is often regarded as the heart of the whale route. The best time to enjoy whale watching in Hermanus is between June and November either from land, by boat or from the air via a scenic flight.
After breakfast, we board a boat to in Hermanus and enjoy a 3-hour whale watching cruise. This skilled skipper will take you close to these gentle giants and this is bound to be an unforgettable experience!
The rest of the day can be spent at leisure. Hermanus is a truly beautiful town with walkways along the rocky shore where you can do more whale watching.
After breakfast, we make our way back your guide transfer you to Cape Town airport or any other destination in Cape Town as you tour comes to an end, remembering all too well the amazing experience you had the last 5 days!
