Day 1 - UK to Cape Town
Fly from London to Cape Town, arriving next day.
Days 2-4 - Cape Town
On arrival you'll be transferred to to your chosen hotel, for a three night stay - we have a range of hotels to choose from, and your length of stay in Cape Town is flexible. Spend the next few days exploring Cape Town. Perhaps pre-book a Discover Cape Town City Tour (from £23 per person) - a great introduction to this spectacular city, the Cape Town City Tour provides the perfect opportunity to sample some of its attractions and get your bearings.
We generally don’t suggest you have a car in Cape Town as the traffic can get a little busy, parking can be tricky and most things are easy to get to. If you’d prefer to collect a car when you arrive and have it for your full duration, however, just let us know and we can arrange this for you!
Day 5 - Cape Town to the Whale Coast
Collect your car from the Cape Town depot - costs include a Toyota Corolla or similar, although there’s a good selection of options available. Leave Cape Town behind and drive to Hermanus - the direct drive can be done in two hours but we’d really recommend travelling via the beautiful Cape Peninsula, taking in Hout Bay, the Cape of Good Hope and the penguins at Boulder Beach, around False Bay and then to Betty’s Bay for a second penguin colony - this should take around 4.5 hours, plus stops. On arrival, check in to your chosen hotel for a two night stay - this is flexible, of course!
Driving is fairly straightforward in South Africa, with well maintained roads which are generally fairly quiet outside of the main towns. Driving is on the left and most laws and customs are familiar to UK drivers. Do bear in mind that all drivers will need a valid drivers licence plus the DVLA online code and printout, along with a credit card in the name of the main driver for deposit purposes. Other T&C’s apply - just ask for details!
Day 6 - Whale Coast
Spend the day in and around Hermanus - whale watching cruises depart mainly from June to November, and it’s often possible to see whales from the shore - just stand on the cliffs in the centre of Hermanus and start looking!
Day 7 - Whale Coast to the Winelands
From Hermanus it’s a straightforward drive Stellenbosch, taking around 1.5 hours - if you want to take in more of the beautiful countryside consider heading along the coast to Gansbaai (approx 2.5 hours) or even all the way to the southernmost tip of Africa at Cape Agulhas (approx 4.5 hours). On arrival, check in to your chosen hotel for a three night stay - or shorter or longer if you prefer.
Days 8-9 - Winelands
Spend the next few days exploring the beautiful Winelands area. Explore the three towns of the Winelands area - Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl - or park up and try some of the world-renowned wine at one of the many wineries that are open for visitors.
Day 10 - Return
Drive back to Cape Town airport (around 45 minutes), drop off your vehicle and check in for your flight back to the UK.
