Welcome to the Winelands! Today, transfer from Cape Town to the heart of South Africa's famous wine region. The rest of today is yours to relax or explore the 240 hectare working wine and fruit farm. You can spend hours walking through the gardens, ambling down to the spruit (small river), canoeing or rowing on the farm's two dams, taking advantage of stunning photographic opportunities, or drinking in the astounding views from the Babylonstoren Koppie. Feeling thirsty? Explore one of the plethora of award-winning vineyards and wine farms.

Day 2 Winelands Tour

You are met this morning by your guide in Franschhoek and set off to explore the Winelands, a delightful drive which winds its way through superb mountain ranges, vineyards, and Cape Dutch homesteads. Your first stop is at the town of Paarl, at the foot of a cluster of remarkable granite domes where you enjoy your first wine tasting. Continue onwards to Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal-lined avenues and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture where you can do wine tasting, coupled with a chocolate and dessert tasting. Venture onward over the scenic Helshoogte Pass, back to Franschhoek, founded by French Huguenots over 350 years ago, and widely regarded as the culinary capital of South Africa.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
