Day 3 – The Constantia Wine Route and Cape Point Nature Reserve

Today after breakfast we have the first of the wine and sightseeing tours.

There is no better way to explore the beautiful Western Cape than by sidecars as we first head south along the coast to Cape Point Nature Reserve.

Chapman‟s Peak Drive winds it way between Noordhoek and Hout Bay. Situated on the Atlantic Coast, at the south-western tip of South Africa, it is one of the most spectacular marine drives anywhere in the world. The 9km route, with its 114 curves, skirts the rocky coastline of Chapman’s Peak, the 593m high southerly extension of Constantia Berg. The drive offers stunning 180° views over the ocean and mountains with Hout Bay in the distance.

Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve

We continue to the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve.

Established in 1939 to protect 7750 ha of indigenous flora and fauna the Cape of Good Hope Nature Reserve comes to an end at majestic Cape Point. Situated at the junction of two of earth’s most contrasting water masses – the cold Benguela current on the West Coast and the warm Agulhas current on the East Coast, the Cape of Good Hope is popularly perceived as the meeting point of the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans. Guests will take the funicular to the vantage point from where they will be able to witness the “meeting of the two oceans”.

After lunch we continue to the to the Constantia region to discover Cape Town‟s most intimate wine route and learn about the history of the oldest wine-growing area in Southern Africa. Whilst here we will visit several vineyards.
