Explore the Winelands region of South Africa with a 3-day extension to some of the country’s best vineyards. Embark on a wonderful trip through breathtaking mountain ranges, vineyards, and Cape Dutch settlements to explore the Winelands. Visit the vineyards of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, and Paarl. The Cape Winelands are a cluster of ancient cities, little hamlets, and Cape Dutch farmsteads that produce highly rated South African wines and are located about 40 km to the east of Cape Town under the shadow of a continuous belt of Cape Fold Mountains. These mountains not only provide a breathtakingly beautiful backdrop for a wide variety of vines, but they are also one of the factors contributing to the success of the region’s wines. Their particular soil conditions, created by their geological components, directly influence the flavor of wine.
Today, make the transfer from your accommodation in Cape Town to the rural inn, where you may settle in for a few days of relaxation in the Winelands. On well-kept lawns and shady patios, you can unwind the rest of the day.
This morning, your guide meets you in Franschhoek, and you depart to explore the Winelands. The trip through the Winelands is beautiful, winding through breathtaking mountain ranges, vineyards, and Cape Dutch settlements. Your first destination is in the town of Paarl, where you partake in your first wine tasting at the base of an impressive group of granite domes. Continue on to Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second-oldest town, where you can partake in wine tastings along with chocolate and dessert tastings.
