Kirstenbosch & Wine
USD89 per person
Skirting the slopes of Devil’s Peak, you will travel to Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens spread over 1,300 acres on the eastern slopes of Table Mountain, and are home to over 8,500 species of indigenous plants. Wander through the beautiful surroundings and enjoy some free time in the well-stocked Curio Shop.
Afterwards, travel through the prestigious suburbs of Bishopscourt and Constantia into the region where South Africa’s wine industry began over three centuries ago. Groot Constantia Estate boasts one of the most magnificent Cape Dutch homesteads. Once the private home of Dutch Governor Simon van der Stel, the manor house, which you will be able to visit briefly, is a fascinating blend of the West, East and Africa, incorporating European ideas, Asian craftsmanship and African materials. Join a guided tour of the cellar, followed by a formal wine tasting.
Returning via Hout Bay, you will pass through the Atlantic seaboard suburbs of Camps Bay, Clifton and Bantry Bay.
