Great Value Suggestion

3 nights Commodore Hotel Cape Town

2 nights Harbour House Hermanus

3 nights Protea Hotel Franschhoek

6 days Car Hire

A great introduction to some of South Africa’s highlights - spend a few days exploring Cape Town before picking up a car and heading along the stunning coastline to Hermanus. Then head inland to the Winelands for a taster or two.

SUGGESTED ITINERARY


Day 1 - UK to Cape Town

Fly from London to Cape Town, arriving next day.


Day 2 - Cape Town

On arrival in to Cape Town you'll be met at the airport and transferred to your hotel, for a three night stay. We have a wide selection of hotels to choose from in Cape Town, and your duration here is flexible.


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.


Days 3-4 - Cape Town

You now have a few days to explore stunning Cape Town. If you’re planning on visiting historic Robben Island then it’s important to book well in advance as visitor numbers are limited - we’d highly recommend a visit.


Day 5 - Cape Town to Hermanus

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, setting off via the spectacular Chapman’s Peak Drive and 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 to the Winelands, 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

There’s more to the Winelands than wine (although it’s top of our list, of course!) and the region is becoming increasingly well-know for its craft beers too. It’s no surprise that the Winelands is probably our favourite part of South Africa!


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.
