The oldest city of South Africa

Cook your own lunch in the Bo-Kaap, an eyepopping kaleidoscope of brightly coloured houses, spice shops and mosques, smothered in a thick layer of Cape Malay tradition. Cycle on a water bike between penguins and ride in side car over the endless winding roads to the Cape of Good Hope. Or choose one of the other optional excursions, all designed to let you discover Cape Town in a new and exciting way.
Much more than wine in Stellenbosch
Then it’s time to discover South Africa’s winelands in a completely new way. It’s not all wine that is available. The winelands are much more than that! Culture, heritage, nature, mystery, excellent food, fine dining, cycling, unique experiences and many craft beer breweries.
Staying in Stellenbosch, the second oldest settlement in South Africa after Cape Town, you will explore this town in a unique and captivating way. History, walking, and cycling but of course also eating and beer tasting are the experiences waiting for you.
From Stellenbosch we take you out to the West Coast and Darling for more intriguing, special and mind-blowing experiences.
