Table Mountain is where your journey begins. From the plateau at over 3000ft you are looking at one of the world’s greatest panoramas. Below you, beyond the rocky outcrops of Signal Hill and Lion’s Head lies Cape Town itself, wrapped around the foot of the mountains. Off shore is Robben Island. Below the eastern fl ank lie Kirstenbosch Gardens and away to the south the Cape of Good Hope. You wonder if it can get any better than this… indeed it can.

You will have time in Cape Town to explore the city and to soak up the atmosphere of this beautiful, relaxed and diverse place.

Moving on, we travel to Oudtshoorn in the Little Karoo, a semi-arid region, for four nights. We’ll visit local attractions such as the Cango Caves and perhaps an ostrich farm. We’ll walk in the Swartberg mountain range, including the famous Swartberg Pass (dependent on local weather conditions). The views from here are awe-inspiring.

From Oudtshoorn, we travel south to the sophisticated town of Knysna, from where we’ll walk in the Tsitsikamma National Park and on the iconic Robberg Peninsula at nearby Plettenberg Bay.

Finally we’ll drive the ‘Garden Route’ back to Stellenbosch, one of the most beautiful towns of the Winelands region. We’ll walk in the surrounding mountains and visit the historic town centre. We’ll also visit Franschhoek to walk in the Mont Rochelle Nature Reserve before enjoying the opportunity to visit a local vineyard.

Please note: on some days, especially allowing for the heat during summer months and rough terrain, the walks are considered to be at the top of the grade.

Berluda-Farmhouse-&-Cottages

Nestled in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains on a typical Little Karoo farm. The rooms are furnished in a rustic country style combined with modern luxury. The room arrangement is not typical of a standard hotel and the spacious cottages that we will stay in, will typically have two separate bedrooms with en-suite facilities, but with a shared kitchen and living space. You will therefore be sharing a cottage with your fellow group members. Other rooms will be a double room provided in the Farmhouse. Single occupants will have a double room for sole use.
