Ever thought about travelling to South Africa, well here is your chance.
We have put together a trip with a twist, we will tick some places off your bucket list like Table Mountain and going on a safari but we also decided to do something a bit different. Join us on an epic road trip in South Africa. Prepare to be amazed by its beauty, enjoy lots of delicious food and wine and go off the beaten track to discover not only new places but new experiences.
We start by meeting each other in one of my favourite cities in the world, Cape Town.
Our first day is spent getting the group together, walking around in Cape Town Waterfront and having a welcome dinner together, with the iconic Table Mountain ever present in the background.
The next day we hike up Table Mountain (weather permitting) and of course, you still have the option of taking the cable car, this isn’t boot camp. We explore Cape Town its history, its beauty, the good, the bad and the downright sad that makes Cape Town well Cape Town.
Next, we head to Charlene's hometown. She has been going to Hermanus for our annual family holidays since the age of 8 when her grandparents lived there. She eventually moved there when she was 12. Hermanus is a well-known town for its whale watching, yes whales.
We will show you around the charming and beautiful Hermanus, go hiking, swimming, explore the town, have amazing food, wine and beer and of course whale watching. Also, a trip to Hermanus just won’t be complete without a visit to our absolute favourite winery.
We will also do the most traditional thing in South Africa which is to have a braai (BBQ) and our braai master for the night will be Charlene's awesome dad and her mom even said she’ll prepare us a salad or two.
So on the day we leave Hermanus you have to ask yourself a question. “Given the opportunity to be almost face to face with a great white shark, would I do it?” Well, today you will have the option to do so if you wish because on our way to our next location we will go past the famous Cage Diving site.
For the ones who decided “no I think I can totally skip this experience,” we will head to the artsy village of Stanford and fit in a cheeky beer or wine tasting.
Next, we will head to the most Southern tip of Africa, L’Agulhas, which is also the place where the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean meet. We will spend the next there before continuing on our road trip.
Wilderness. We think it might just be a little piece of heaven. We’ll spend a few nights here enjoying our surroundings. There are rivers to explore on kayaks, hiking trails in wild forests and, of course, a beautiful long sandy beach. This part of the trip is dedicated to soaking up the quiet, the nature and good conversation in this beautiful part of South Africa.
It’s time to get back on the road again and what better way than to head to the local attractions. A place where Charlene has been many times since she was a toddler - the Oudtshoorn ostrich farm. We will go on a tour, get to know the history of the area and also have lunch there.
Then we will head to a quirky town called Barrydale. It’s in the Klein Karoo which is a semi-desert area. We rest there for the night before heading to a very special part of the trip and one I would imagine most people look forward to when coming to South Africa.
Yes, my friends, it’s safari time!!!!!!! And instead of just going on one a quick guided tour, we will spend two nights at a wild safari lodge so we can truly enjoy and not feel rushed at all.
Next, we head to Franschoek, a picturesque town which you will surely fall in love with. We will explore the town and grab some lunch before heading to the famous Stellenbosch wine area known for its wine and food.
You don’t have to love wine to enjoy Stellenbosch, the Dutch heritage and history of the small town itself and the friendly people are the main part of the attraction,.
After our stay in Stellenbosch we head back to Cape Town and go on a township tour to learn more about the socio-economic side of South Africa, the history and the culture. It will be a fascinating and informative part of the road trip. That night we will enjoy our last meal together, toast to new friends and memories made and get a good night’s rest. For the more wilder of us, Cape Town also has a vibrant bar and club scene which you are welcome to explore.
For people wanting to stay longer in South Africa, we can help to book additional accommodation. Optional services like a day trip to Robben Island you have to let us know in advance so we can book it for you.
