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! The day will be devoted to exploring the City of Cape Town. Stops will include the Company’s Gardens, the Castle of Good Hope, 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.

Table Mountain is one of the new 7 wonders of nature. From Table Mountain, spectacular views of the city, the Peninsula and Robben Island will leave you in awe.

Check in to your hotel and freshen up, before enjoying dinner at one of the various excellent restaurants the V&A Waterfront has to offer. Please ask your guide for suggestions.

Enjoy a scrumptious breakfast and depart for Hout Bay. The views in this sociable village are mesmerizing as Hout Bay is set in a fold of sea-lapped mountains that look out across the Atlantic Ocean.

From the harbor, you will embark on a 45-minute boat cruise to Duiker Island to view a huge fur 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 Hout Bay behind, embark on a breath-taking drive, known as the Chapman's Peak Drive; arguably the most scenic drive in the world! The road leads to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve and Cape Point. Inside 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 back to Cape Town a visit is also made to Boulders Beach, an ideal vantage point to watch the local colony of African penguins that call this beach their home.

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 Stell 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 back to Cape Town!
