Cape Town – Franschhoek – Gansbaai

To the Cape Peninsula
and beyond

Swapping game drives for farm life and dusty savannahs for bustling streets, experience a different side of South Africa’s west – wildlife still guaranteed.

King of Africa’s urban jungles, the ‘Mother City’ is where the journey begins. Hidden in the shadow of Table Mountain, this vibrant city invites scavenger hunts of all shapes and sizes, ticking off the essential sights from historic gardens and street art alleys, to nature trails from the mountain to the sea.

Then, the winelands are given a kid-approved makeover at a working wine and fruit farm in the Drakenstein Valley. Getting their hands dirty by helping out with the animals, harvesting veg from the gardens and making their own bread. Gansbaai rounds off the trip, the Marine Big 5 here aren’t the only things to prompt involuntary squeals of delight though, with fairies being sought in the 1,500-year-old Milkwood forest and penguin friends being made at Betty's Bay.
