This 9-day Cape Town, safari & wine driving itinerary will have you exploring Cape Town and its surrounding areas in a relaxed and comfortable way.
The first part of your holiday starts in Cape Town, where you will spend 4 nights staying at the V&A Waterfront. The V&A is perfectly situated to explore the city centre and the Atlantic Seaboard, where you’ll find loads of popular local restaurants, each offering something a little different. If you’re looking for a bit of cultural education, the city centre also has a number of interesting museums you can visit. A visit to Cape Town is not complete without a scenic drive along the coastline towards Simon’s Town, where you can swim with the local penguins. Another favourite is a sunset trip in the cable car up Table Mountain, where you’ll be treated to spectacular views of the city.
The next part of your Cape Town, safari & wine holiday takes you to the ‘malaria free’ Sanbona Game Reserve, just a 3.5 hour drive away from Cape Town. You’ll be spending 2 nights here and be treated to morning and afternoon game drives, as well as delicious meals and local drinks. Sanbona offers some beautiful scenery and has a great diversity of animals, making for some interesting game drives. Sanbona is also home to the very rare white lions, and is one of the only places in the world where you can see them in the wild.
The last leg of your journey brings you back towards Cape Town, where you’ll be spending 2 nights on a working wine farm just outside of Franschhoek in the Cape Winelands. We recommend a drive into Franschhoek and taking the Franschhoek Tram to visit some of the nearby wine farms – a super way to explore this beautiful area and make the most of your Cape Town, safari & wine holiday. We also recommend spending an evening eating out in Franschhoek, which is South Africa’s culinary capital!
