We travel along the Atlantic Seaboard and coastal road to Hout Bay–a quaint village and fishing harbour with magnificent mountain views and beach. On through Chapman’s Peak, one of the world’s most breath-taking coastal drives, to Cape Point and the Good Hope Nature Reserve. We explore the historic Simon’s Town, a village with charming Victorian architecture, a naval base and a large penguin colony at beautiful Boulders Beach.
Our next stop is the Constantia wine country – the oldest wine region in South Africa. The area is rich in beautiful Cape Dutch architecture and today is one of our premier wine-tasting destinations and culinary hotspots. There are plenty of premium options to choose from and with the added bonus of it being just a cork’s throw away from the city, the affluent and lush Constantia Valley is the perfect choice for time-pressed wine enthusiasts or those with an interest in the history of wine in SA. Synonymous with premium, award-winning reds and whites, especially Sauvignon Blanc, The Constantia Wine Route is only 7.25km from one end to the other, affording the opportunity to see a good mix of new-age boutique wineries and historic, Cape Dutch-style estates.
