South Africa holidays
Set off for the Winelands, a delightful drive which winds its way through superb mountain ranges, vineyards and Cape Dutch homesteads. The first stop is Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa, with canal-lined avenues and magnificent examples of Cape Dutch architecture where you can enjoy wine tasting, coupled with a chocolate and dessert tasting. Onward over the scenic Helshoogte Pass is Franschhoek, founded by French Huguenots over 350 years ago and widely regarded as the culinary capital of South Africa. Its beautiful setting and cafe-lined streets will charm you and a further wine tasting is included at one of the renowned estates here. Your final stop is at the town of Paarl, at the foot of a cluster of remarkable granite domes, where you can enjoy your final wine tasting before heading back to Cape Town.
