Cape Town & Garden Route Self Drive

Welcome to Cape Town! There's music, shows, birding, gardens dining and a multitude of shopping and art venues to choose from. The early settlers in Stellenbosch were encouraged to plant Oak Trees and today, Stellenbosch's oak lanes bear testimony in the town being known as 'Eikestad' meaning village of oaks.

Stellenbosch, the second oldest town with the most historic buildings of any in South Africa. It’s a must to take a pleasant stroll through its oak lined streets and to visit a museum where you can walk into four beautifully restored old houses of different styles.

The Garden Route and Klein Karoo area in Knysna is the perfect holiday destination with so much to do and see. The tours and activities along the route will allow you to experience all the facets of the beautiful Garden Route and Klein Karoo area in all its splendor.

Cape Town
Day 1 to 3

Mother Nature surpassed herself when crafting the Mother City. Whether jogging along Sea Point Promenade, climbing up Lion’s Head in the dawn light, clambering over giant boulders at Sandy Bay or driving the amazing coastal roads down to Cape Point, you will never fail to feel your spirits soar as you take in the breathtakingly beautiful vistas. You don’t need to break a sweat; sipping wine on a historic farm in Constantia or enjoying a picnic at an outdoor concert in  are equally memorable ways to commune with Cape Town’s great outdoors. Wrenching yourself away from the magnetic mountain and all the delights of the Cape Peninsula is a challenge, but within an hour you can exchange urban landscapes for the charming towns, villages and bucolic estates of Winelands destinations such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and undoubtedly the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in southern Africa. The name conjures up images as few other towns or cities can. History is reflected in the neo-Dutch, Georgian and modern-Victorian architecture that encompasses simple lines, fine detail and elegant proportions that bear witness to a proud and dignified heritage. Oak-lined streets, where jagged lines of trees etched against white walls transform the streets into soft, shady tunnels, offer welcome relief from the hot sun. The mild weather and unique terroir is ideal for wine-growing and the region has amassed many international awards over the years.
