Combine two of our favourite places in South Africa - wonderful Cape Town and the gorgeous Winelands - with one of our top Indian Ocean islands, Mauritius, for one incredible holiday!
Day 1 - UK to Cape Town
Fly from Heathrow to Cape Town, arriving next day - departures from other UK airports are also available.
Day 2 - Cape Town
On arrival in to Cape Town you'll be transferred to the President Hotel for a three night stay - set close to the beach in Bantry Bay and a short drive from the V&A Waterfront, this is a great location for exploring and relaxing.
Days 3-4 - Cape Town
Spend the next few days exploring Cape Town. Our top tip is to visit the Two Oceans Aquarium, and consider pre-booking the Penguin Encounter - you’ll have to book early as they only allow two people a day, and only a few days per week, to interact with these wonderful creatures.
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 Winelands
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 Franschhoek - the direct drive can be done in an hour and a half 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 - this should take around 3 hours, plus stops. On arrival, check in to the Protea Hotel Franschhoek 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 - Winelands
Spend today 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. We love the Wine Tram - hop-on hop-off wine tasting is the way to go!
Day 7 - Winelands to Mauritius
You need to be at Cape Town airport later today, so we’d recommend a slightly longer route of around three hours via the whales at Hermanus and the penguins at Betty’s Bay, before dropping off your car at Cape Town Airport for your flight to Mauritius, arriving early the next day.
Day 8 - Mauritius
On arrival you’ll be met at the airport and transferred to the relaxed Veranda Pointe Aux Biches for a seven night stay. This is one of our favourite resorts on the island - we think it’s very important that we have first-hand experience of the destinations we feature, so we visit them as much as we can to give you the best advice!
Days 9-14 - Mauritius
Spend the rest of your time in Mauritius relaxing at your resort, or exploring this beautiful island. Black River Gorges is Mauritius’ sole national park in the central highlands, home to over 300 plant species and bird life.
Day 15 - Return
Return transfer to the airport for your return flight the UK.
