Day 1

Upon arrival at the Cape Town International Airport, you are met outside the Customs and Immigration area and transferred to your city-based hotel where you will spend the night. Lunch is on your own. Check-in time is at 2:00pm. Although every effort will be made to have rooms available before this time this cannot be guaranteed.

If you are arriving quite early, in order to guarantee a room to be available when you arrive, you will need to book an additional night’s stay. For early arrivals, luggage storage will be available at the hotel where you can store it and head out to explore the sites or begin to use the facilities of the hotel.

The remainder of the day is at your leisure. Dinner is on your own

Day 2

Depart Cape Town and head towards the famous Cape Winelands, set below the dramatic range of mountains called the “Hottentots Holland”, where you will be surrounded by white-washed homesteads nestling under avenues of oaks, rolling green hills covered with wildflowers, fertile valleys alive with the sounds of surging streams, and restaurants with French names and Dutch flavors.

Before lunch, visit a wine estate in the Paarl region where you can partake in a formal wine tasting and cellar tour. You will also visit Franschhoek, a small town in the Western Cape Province and one of the oldest towns of the Republic of South Africa.

Enjoy a light picnic lunch at another wine estate after which you will drive through Stellenbosch, “Town of Oaks”, the second oldest town in South Africa, founded by Governor Simon van der Stel in 1679. Today, Stellenbosch is best known as a major university town, characterized by Cape Dutch-style architecture and leafy streets so beautiful that some of them have been declared national monuments.

Finally, you will return to the hotel where the remainder of the afternoon is at leisure.

A welcome dinner is included at the hotel.

Day 3

After breakfast at your hotel, depart Cape Town for a two-hour journey which will meander through the scenic Hex River Valley to one of Cape Town’s closest private game reserves, Aquila.

This game reserve is situated on 4500 hectares of Southern Karoo Highlands and combines the flora and fauna of three beautiful valleys. The reserve encompasses a natural wetland and a magnificent mountain range. Here you will have the opportunity to experience in your 4×4 safari vehicles with experienced ranger guides, an outstanding variety of game including the Big Five. Elephant, lion, buffalo, rhino and leopard, as well as a significant amount of other wild game, roam freely in the semi-arid desert reserve.

Note: animal sightings are never guaranteed

Following your game drive and before your return to Cape Town, a buffet lunch will be served on site.

Once back in Cape Town, the remainder of the day will be at your leisure and dinner is on your own.

Day 4

After breakfast at your hotel and check-out formalities, embark on a half day Cape Point tour en-route to the harbor where the cruise ship awaits your arrival. Guests are reminded to settle any hotel incidentals before checking out.

Begin with a scenic drive to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve. It is here that the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, along with their diverse ecosystems, are thought to converge. This expansive nature reserve occupies 19,150 acres of indigenous flora and fauna. Cape Point and its dramatic sea cliffs, among South Africa’s highest are main attractions of the reserve. Upon arrival, you will ride the funicular railway to the top of Cape Point (provided it’s in operation) and take in breathtaking views and photo opportunities. Should the funicular not be in operation guests can walk up the pathways to the top.

Thereafter, visit the African penguin colony at Boulders Beach, followed by a drive through the naval base of Simon’s Town to Fish Hoek. From here, you will continue to the colorful fishing harbor of Kalk Bay before turning on to Boyes Drive, which offers magnificent views of Muizenberg and False Bay.

Your drive will conclude passing by the University of Cape Town, Rhodes Memorial, Mostert’s Mill and famous Groote Schuur Hospital before reaching Cape Town harbor where you will embark the ship.
