Your Itinerary —
Welcome to Africa! On arrival, you are met by your Thompsons Africa representative who will assist you to where you can pick up your hired vehicle and make your way to AHA Harbour Bridge Hotel and Suites.
Spend some time exploring South Africa's capital city. Situated at the base of Table Mountain, it is the capital city of the Western Cape. Whether you are looking for history, natural beauty or a cosmopolitan lifestyle, the 'Mother City' has it all. There is such a diversity of attractions and activities you will not be disappointed with your city experience. Offering fantastic views of the city, Table Mountain dominates the skyline.
This morning enjoy a lovely relaxed breakfast then make your way to the De Zalze Lodge in Stellenbosch where you will spend the next 2 nights of your trip.
Stellenbosch dates back to 1679 and is the second-oldest wine producing region in South Africa. No more than half an hour’s drive from the cosmopolitan buzz of Cape Town, here there is a relaxed, small-town atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle, no doubt helped by the stunning natural scenery. The views over vineyards, mountains and orchards, offer excellent photographic opportunities and provide a calming respite from the exciting pace of Cape Town.
The mild weather and unique territory is ideal for wine-growing and the region has amassed many international awards over the years. Daily wine-tasting and cellar tours are available at most of the numerous vineyards. Many also have restaurant and picnic facilities to spend a leisurely afternoon.
This morning enjoy your sumptuous breakfast and drop off your car at the Europcar Stellenbosch Depot. You will then be collected and transferred to Aquila Private Game Reserve where you will be spending the last 2 nights of your trip.
Set in the pristine Southern Karoo Highlands against a backdrop of dramatic mountains, the Aquila Private Game Reserve and Spa offers an exciting taste of real Africa just two short hours from Cape Town by road. Home to an enormous variety of game, including the Big Five, Aquila offers two to three-hour game drives - the perfect way to see wildlife.
Enjoy a lengthy breakfast before heading back to Cape Town International Airport to continue on your onward journey. We suggest that you return via South Africa's famously beautiful wine road and indulge in some wine tasting. Discover a relaxed, small-town atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle, no doubt helped by the stunning natural scenery. The views over vineyards, mountains and orchards are simply mesmerising. Drop-off your car at the airport & board your flight home.
