What to Expect
Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kayamandi parkrun, Unnamed Road, Kayamandi, Stellenbosch, 7615, South Africa

Morning pick-up in Cape Town or Stellenbosch.  Visit Mama Swartbooi’s house in Kayamandi township, where you’ll be treated to rooibos tea or home-made gingerbeer and an array of local Xhosa treats such as amagwinya (vetkoek) and chakalaka. Be swept away by the stories of the diverse history of the area.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Simonsig, Kromme Rhee Road, Stellenbosch 7605 South Africa

Pop in at the picturesque Simonsig, home of the country’s first ever produced MCC. Enjoy a bubbly tasting from the masters as you take a moment to soak in the fresh country air and the beauty of the Stellenbosch Winelands.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: La Bri Estate, Excelsior Road, Franschhoek 7690 South Africa

Your next destination sees you venture into the quaint town of Franschhoek for some fine wine paired with locally made chocolates. You could also opt for a bit of local flair and choose a wine and biltong pairing instead where you’ll taste how the wine flavours are enhanced by beef and game biltong.

Duration: 45 minutes

Pass By: Franschhoek Pass, Regional road Tra (between) Franschhoek - Villiersdorp, Franschhoek 7690 South Africa

As lunch nears, South Africa’s epicurean capital, Franschhoek, with its multitude of eateries is a must-do for gourmands and on weekends the local farmers’ market beckons with colourful stalls and tasty aromas. 

Stop At: Cape Agulhas - Southernmost Tip of Africa, South Africa

From the rolling fields and unending vineyards of the Winelands, you'll head to the southernmost point of Africa and the very spot where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans collide. Watch the sky burst into colour as the sun kisses the sea and spend a relaxing night at the tip of Africa.

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Hermanus Cliff Path, Westcliff Rd, Hermanus, Overstrand 7200 South Africa

Wake up to the sound of the ocean in Cape Agulhas and take a moment to breathe in the fresh sea air. You’ll then start the short journey to the coastal haven of Hermanus where winding ocean cliff paths await and are sure to enthral. Meander along coastal paths lined with indigenous fynbos, lulled by the crashing sounds of ocean waves against the adjacent rocky shoreline. Hermanus is also one of the best land-based whale watching locations the world, so you can look forward to trying to spot a few southern right whales during whale season from June to November.  You could hop on an optional whale cruise in search of some cavorting whales, or choose to stretch those sea legs with an all-year-round optional guided sea kayaking experience. Test your grit as you glide across the open ocean and spot various wildlife. For a tamer pace, have a whale of a time in the seaside town of Hermanus, littered with curio shops and art galleries.

Duration: 45 minutes

Stop At: Stony Point Penguin Colony, Betty's Bay South Africa

The thriving African penguin colony at Betty’s Bay adds the final nature wow. Being one of the only remaining breeding grounds of the African penguin, these clumsy creatures are sure to pull on your heartstrings. Flap a wave goodbye as you head on along the scenic coastal Clarence Drive to reach Cape Town by late afternoon.

Excellent two day tour conducted expertly and enthusiastically by our guide Maudi. So much to see, including a township visit, some beautiful vineyards, the bottom of Africa, whale spotting (we saw some!) and hundreds of penguins. Lovely accommodation overnight in Cape

What an amazing 5-star review, thanks for letting us know that the #superguide Gerhard turned your 2-Day Wine & Whale Coast experience into a phenomenal one. Whether you’re a businessman, avid hiker or a distinguished yogi – Southern Africa is your paradise. Boasting her very own 'Garden of Eden' along the Garden Route, endless mountain trails, wildlife galore, wide-open beaches and deep blue oceans; the list goes on and on... Being close to nature is our vibe... our guides love their outdoor 'offices' on the road daily. So get out there, leave the busy world behind and become one with Mother Nature - all in one glorious country. Hope you'll return for more soon, keep'on adventuring - from Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

Thanks for your stellar 5-star review and for recommending our 2-day Wine and Whale Coast tour. We'll make sure your friends have an absolute blast too then they come to explore the Whale Coast with us on their next visit. This region has so much on offer and during whale season, the presence of whales in the bay takes this trip to a whole new level. Keep'on doing epic adventures like this one, see you hopefully again soon. From Ferdi & team Hotspots2c

We took a lot in within the two days, including wine, walks, beer tasting and even a little whale watching from the coast even though we were slightly out of season. All round a great trip.
