Day 9 is to explore on your own. We recommend heading down to the V&A Waterfront, walking down trendy Kloof, Long or Bree Streets or heading over to Camp’s Bay if the weather is
nice! If you have a particular interest in the history, culture, food, art, shopping etc. and would like your private guide to join you today, please just let us know! Overnight at Kensington Place.
On day 10, pack your bags and take them with you today. Your private guide will pick you up this up to explore one of the most scenically beautiful areas in SA, visiting fascinating towns and taking a look into off-the-beaten-track farms which revel in their old-world roots and influences. Today is about so much more than just sipping the wines. Depending on time and season, stroll through the vines, learning about farming methods and techniques. Take an intimate wine-tasting and cellar tour and possibly meet the driving force behind the estate. If lucky, our behind-the-scenes experience could include grape picking or barrel tastings.
Spend time in Stellenbosch, browsing through its wealth of appealing stores and museums and sip local coffee blends in tempting cafes. Let the pairing of wine and olives awaken your senses before we meander through lush gardens bursting with life. Admire a collection of contemporary art, see the highest-growing vines and, from an elevated point, take in the stunning vistas over an old-world estate.
This afternoon, discover Franschhoek. Established by the French Huguenots in 1688, this town retains its historic charm but has fused it with a contemporary vibe. It boasts gourmet restaurants, appealing boutiques and art galleries. You will then head to your winelands boutique hotel right on the main street of Franschhoek to check-in. Overnight at Avondrood Guest House.
