After the descent, enjoy a scenic coastal drive through Clifton and Sea Point to the city centre where you visit Green Market Square. Stretch your legs with a walk through the Company Gardens, before continuing with the tour.  Drive past the Houses of Parliament, the City Hall, The Castle and Slave Lodge, before entering the "Bo Kaap", also known as the Malay quarter. The architecture in this area is typical of what Cape Town was like 200 years ago. Ascend Signal Hill to witness the firing of the noon gun (except Sundays and Public Holidays). You will be dazzled by the diamond tour where you learn about the history of these sparkling gems before returning to your hotel, include Cabel way tickets

Itinerary Summary.

 

Arrival into Cape Town for 3 nights will allow you time to acclimatise, chill and enjoy the beautiful Cape waterfront with fantastic shops, bars, restaurants with time to visit Robben Island & Table Mountain.

 

The Dock House is just one of the hotels Pat and I visited and is a beautiful small hotel with a lovely pool area, right in the heart of the waterfront.

 

From here I take you Steenberg, just 20 minutes drive from Cape Town.

Your first stop at a golf and wine estate.

Arrive here early for a game of golf and a chilled afternoon wine tasting.

 

I have only allocated one night at Steenberg, as there is nothing apart from beautiful winelands in the area.

An early arrival and a later check- out could allow 2 games of golf.

 

Following on from Steenberg you head for Franschhoek which is a beautiful small town in the heart of the winelands.

Shops, bars, restaurants and plenty of golf courses close at hand.

The hotel can arrange transport from the hotel to golf courses and wine estates during your time here, although you still have some wine estates close at hand.

 

After Franschhoek I have included a safari at Shamwari.

A luxury lodge that Pat has visited several times.

 

And finally after your Safari head back to Camps Bay, a beautiful beach resort just a 15 minute drive from Cape Town.

Again from Camps Bay you could have a game of golf at the Royal Cape Golf Club or head to Simonstown to see the Penguins.

 

This looks a busy itinerary and can be amended in anyway, but this really does highlight what SA has to offer.

 

 

 

If your main flights are in Premium economy the approximate price is £5489.00 per person

If you upgrade your main flights to Upper class the approximate price is £7479.00 per person

 

(all golf and transport to the golf courses are extra, although Steenberg course is at the end of the hotel’s drive)
