Day 1

You’ll have the afternoon and evening to spend at your leisure, with our team only too happy to make restaurant recommendations and reservations.

Day 2

Experience Cape Town

We’ll spend today immersing ourselves in the beauty of Cape Town today with a half-day city tour and an afternoon cableway ride to Table Mountain for a bird’s eye view of the city.

Your half-day Cape Town tour includes visits to the South African Museum, the beautiful Company Gardens, the parliament buildings, city hall, and the Castle of Good Hope.

You’ll then head into the colourful streets of multicultural Bo-Kaap, where you’ll visit local landmarks including Signal Hill, Green Market Square, and Clifton. You’ll even have a chance to visit one of the local diamond factories.

After your city tour is complete, you’ll board the scenic Table Mountain Cableway for a ride to the top of Cape Town’s most well-known landmark, from where you’ll have a spectacular view of the city.

Day 3

The Spectacular Cape Peninsula

We’ll head out after breakfast today for a full day exploring the stunning Cape Peninsula. Your day is one packed with isolated beaches, unspoiled landscapes, quaint villages, and the unique wildlife that makes the region so popular.

Our day starts with the idyllic beaches of Clifton & Camps Bay before we head over to the bustling fishing town of Hout Bay. While here, you’ll take a boat out to Seal Island to spend a little time observing the playful mammals that lend the island their name.

A visit to Cape Point to see firsthand where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet is our next stop en route to the highlight of the day: the penguin colony of Simon’s Town! These adorable birds call the nearby Boulders Beach home, and you’ll get a chance to see them up close.

We’ll then make our way back towards Cape Town, breaking up the drive with a visit to the beautiful Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens to stretch your legs and snap a few photos. Nestled at the foot of Devil’s Peak Mountain, it’s an absolutely gorgeous spot and well worth the visit.

We’ll return to Cape Town in time for dinner.

Day 4

Oceanic Adventures

Cape Town is widely regarded as one of the best places in the world for whale-watching, and we’re going to put that to the test today as we head out into the grey-blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean in pursuit of the majestic humpback.

If you’re looking for something a bit more adventurous, you might fancy the opportunity to experience the thrill of cage-diving with the great white sharks that frequent the same waters. Take a walk on the wild side with this once in a lifetime experience.

Or, if you’d prefer a day to explore Cape Town at your leisure, today can be a day of your own design. There’s plenty to see, do, and eat in Cape Town!

Day 5

Stellenbosch Winery

We’re going on a wine tour with a difference today, as you’ll take a helicopter flight all the way to the beating heart of South Africa’s world-famous wine country!

Soaring over the tapestry of landscapes sprawled out beneath you is the ideal way to start a day of world-class wine and delicious gourmet food in the twin wine towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

After a day of fine wine and fine dining, you’ll retire to a quaint wine country B&B for a night’s well-earned rest.

Day 6

A Day in Wine Country

What is better than a day sampling world-class wines in wine country? Two days in wine country!

Today is a day for new experiences, and you’ll start with a breathtaking sunrise hot air balloon ride that is sure to inspire you for the day ahead.

Once you touch down, you’ll have a day of wine tastings and fine food to remember. Take a ride on the famous wine country train or rent bicycles and cycle from cellar door to cellar door.

Once your exploration and degustation is done, we’ll head back to Cape Town to sleep off your day of excess.

Alternatively, depending on what time your flight departs tomorrow, you can spend one more night in wine country.

Day 7

Farewell to Cape Town

After breakfast, an Iconic Expeditions vehicle will pick you up from your hotel and bring you to the airport for your onward travel.
If you opted to spend your last night in wine country, we can even arrange a helicopter transfer straight to the airport!
