SOUTH AFRICA & BOTSWANA

SOUTH AFRICA & BOTSWANA August 11 - 23, 2019

DAY 1: TRAVELING
Depart from New York (JFK) or Washington Dulles (IAD) for your South African Airways flight to South Africa.

 
DAY 2: CAPE TOWN
On arrival in Johannesburg you will connect onwards for your flight on South African Airways to Cape Town. On arrival you will be met and transferred to your hotel.

Overnight on a bed and breakfast basis at The Vineyard Hotel & Spa

DAY 3: CAPE TOWN
After breakfast you will be met and depart for your scheduled full day Cape Peninsula tour.

Depart the hotel and flank the Atlantic Ocean en route to Hout Bay. Once a fishing community, it is now one of the most popular residential areas. The harbor still has a charm of days gone by. You’ll have a chance to join a half-hour cruise to Seal Island (optional trip for own account +/- R70) or, for the not so adventurous, the fish market Mariners Wharf is a must.

The tour continues over the famous Chapman’s Peak drive, weather permitting. With a 200-meter drop on one side and a 200-meter rise on the other, you will make your way south following the Atlantic Ocean until you reach Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope. Said to be the romantic meeting place of the two mighty oceans, the Atlantic and the Indian, Sir Francis Drake the Explorer once called it "the fairest cape that we saw in the whole circumference of the globe." And rightly so, it must be the highlight of any visit to the Mother City, if not South Africa. Your optional lunch stop is at the Fish Hoek Galley.

You’ll pass the naval base of Simonstown as you continue along the coast en route to see the Jackass penguin colony, which has become well established at Boulders Beach near Simonstown. Your last stop of the day is at the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens (optional +/- R65), home of some 3,500 species of Southern African fauna and flora. You’ll return to the hotel in the late afternoon, having seen some of the best the Cape has to offer.

  DAY 4: CAPE TOWN
After breakfast you will be met at the hotel and depart for a scheduled tour of the Cape Winelands. You will depart from the hotel and head north to Paarl. Your first stop is for a morning wine tasting at Nelsons Creek Estate. After a tour through their cellars, there is a chance to sample some of their local wines as well as a cheese tasting. A brief city tour of Paarl follows, before you make your way to Franschhoek with a photo stop at the Groot Drakenstein Prison, where Nelson Mandela was released in 1990. This little village nestled amongst the mountains can easily be mistaken for a little Switzerland.

After a short tour of the town, a second wine tasting will be enjoyed in Franschhoek followed by a lunch stop and perhaps a chance to savor some of the fresh trout for which Franschhoek is renowned.

After lunch, the tour continues to the university town of Stellenbosch. It is easy to understand why Simon van der Stel decided to settle a village here amongst the mountains. The backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, the white gabled Cape Dutch homesteads and the oak-lined streets and lanes all combine to give this place a charm that will not be quickly forgotten. Time permitting, you will also enjoy a third and final wine tasting. Then you will set off for your return to the Mother City.
