Weave through the beautiful coastline in the Eastern and Western Cape Provinces of South Africa. Your journey begins at Mossel Bay, a harbour town sitting on the Southern Cape and ends at Storms River at the edge of the lush Garden Route National Park. The coast is sprinkled with magnificent beaches so be sure to stop along the way to snap some picture-perfect moments. Stay at Oudtshoorn to explore the Swartberg Pass and visit the ostriches. The famous town of Knysna is a popular destination for the adventurous due to the myriad outdoor activities available, like kayaking and fishing.

The Cape Winelands is recognised as South Africa’s culinary capital with a wine-producing history dating back to 350 years ago. Just an hour’s drive away from Cape Town, you’ll arrive at a pleasant sight of vineyards lining the valleys against the backdrop of rugged mountain peaks. Here, you’ll taste the finest wines and most exquisite cuisine South Africa has to offer.

Take a scenic sunset drive and witness the orange plains of the savannah come alive as dusk slowly falls upon the land.
