1. From Cape Town or Stellenbosch: Scenic Coastline Day Tour
Explore the spectacular Western Cape coastline on a private guided day trip from Stellenbosch or Cape Town. Marvel at mountain passes, sea views, and lush vineyards as you make your way to some of the area's top attractions. Start your day with a convenient pickup from your accommodation and head to your first stop for the day, Stony Point Nature Reserve located in the quaint coastal town of Betty's Bay. Wander along the boardwalk and see the colony of African Penguins that call this reserve home. Observe the flightless birds as they go about their daily routines in their natural habitat. Keep an eye out for other species as well, including Cormorant, Hartlaub Gulls, and Kelp Gulls. From the reserve, head to the Harold Porter Botanical Garden. This lovely garden is situated in the center of the coastal fynbos where the flora is at its richest with 1,600 different plant species. Take a stroll through the gardens until you reach the waterfall. Stop for lunch and refuel with some local fare before continuing your Cape adventure with a journey to Franschhoek Valley. Wind along a mountain pass with 99 turns, admiring stunning views along the way. Finish the day with a wine tasting, soaking up the sights of the Franschhoek Valley, known for its delicious wine and views of the mountain slopes.
