Western Cape Adventure – 4 nights Cape Town | 3 nights Franschhoek | 2 nights Sanbona Wildlife Reserve | 2 nights De Hoop Nature Reserve

Overview

Our first visit to South Africa could not have been better!

We chose Pembury Tours and picked Anya as my agent after reading many good reviews.  She worked diligently and tirelessly with me to finalize the itinerary after many back and forth emails. She responded promptly each time.  She was flexible and provided good advice and exceptional service. Once in South Africa, Anya stayed in touch for the entire trip, ensuring all accommodations and transfers were successful.

 

Her choice of hotels and lodges, and other vendors, were first rate. We all had an unforgettable safari experience and also enjoyed the beauty of Cape Town very much.  We highly recommend Anya and Pembury Tours if you want personalized service.

Welcome to Cape Town, Mother City of Africa, and the Western Cape, an area which is regarded as one of the most beautiful regions in the world. Explore the Mother City and the Fairest Cape – from the oldest buildings in South Africa to trendy waterfront shopping; from majestic Table Mountain to sun drenched beaches; and from dramatic seascapes to verdant vineyards.

The village of Franschhoek is at the heart of the Franschhoek Wine Route and is surrounded by craggy mountains and verdant vineyards. Franschhoek village, South Africa’s “French Corner”, has a distinct French feel and is undoubtedly South Africa’s gourmet capital, with several of South Africa’s Top Ten restaurants. It is also filled with quirky shops.

Many of the 42 wine estates on the Franschhoek Wine Route offer informative guided wine-tastings to the public as well as cellar tours or tours of the vineyards. Some of them also make cheese, chocolate and olive oil and offer tastings of these products alongside their wines.

Many of them have on-site restaurants offering food that ranges from gastronomical delights to picnic hampers to enjoy under the oak trees. There is a hop-on hop- off Wine Tram, which visits some of these estates.

After you have enjoyed breakfast at your Guest House, you are met by your driver and transferred to your Luxury Wildlife Reserve in the Klein (Little) Karoo for your 2 night stay.

Seated at the foot of the Warmwaterberg Mountain Range in the heart of the Little Karoo, Sanbona pays tribute to the San people who made this arid environment their home for centuries. Sanbona has an alluring atmosphere of stillness, an air of isolation amid the raw beauty and boundless plains.
