A short drive from Cape Town takes you into the heart of the Winelands. Beautiful Cape Dutch architecture and restaurants serving fine food to accompany excellent wines characterise the pretty regional towns of Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschoek. This is, after all, home to many of the world’s top vineyards.
It’s good to combine the Winelands with a drive along The Garden Route. In all the regions, many of the wine estates have wine tasting, cellaar tours and restaurants serving lunches, which are open daily, but some estates are only open by appointment only. Stay a couple of nights in the region to search out labels you are familiar with or go on a voyage of discovery and find new favourites, as well as taking time to explore the area.
Discover South Africa's stunning Garden Route on this tailor made family adventure, where you can spot elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, as well as whales and sharks.
