This 8-day itinerary showcases the diversity of the greater Cape Town & wilderness region including the breath-taking and remote Cederberg Wilderness area and the picturesque Cape Winelands, all a comfortable drive from Cape Town.
Your Cape Town & wilderness holiday will start with 3 nights in Cape Town. You’ll be staying in Camps Bay, directly across from one of Cape Town’s most iconic beaches and walking distance from many great restaurants. Camps Bay is also a good area to be in for exploring the rest of the Atlantic Seaboard. We recommend taking a scenic drive along the coastline towards Hout Bay, perhaps having lunch and doing a bit of shopping at the Hout Bay Market or driving a bit further to swim with the local penguins in Simon’s Town.
The next part of your Cape Town & wilderness holiday takes you to the Cederberg Wilderness region. The Cederberg is famous for its unusual rock formations and the stunning carpets of flowers in the spring time. We recommend a guided tour to uncover some of treasures of this wilderness area, including ancient bushman paintings. You’ll spend 2 nights here, where you can relax and enjoy the fresh mountain air and tranquillity of this remote and area, before heading off for the last part of your Cape Town & wilderness holiday.
The last part of your trip brings you back to the Cape Winelands area where you’ll spend the last 2 nights on a working farm that is a destination in its own rights – from delicious meals, to the freedom to take a mountain bike and cycle through the private reserve between zebras and antelope or try your hand at some canoeing on the large lake. We can also recommend extending your trip by a few days and taking the Franschhoek Tram to visit some of the nearby wine farms – a super way to get around and explore this beautiful area, and perhaps spend an evening eating out in South Africa’s culinary capital.
