Day trips from Cape Town

Beautiful day in Stellenbosch, South Africa

In the previous post, we shared things to do in Cape Town. While researching for our own trip, we realized there are quite a few things you could do around the city as well.

Here are some of the things we chose to do.

1.Wine Tour in Stellenbosch – this region has scores of vineyards from large commercial ones to family owned boutique ones. We booked a tour with Wine Flies tours and it turned out to be a really enjoyable experience. The tour guide will pick you up in the morning, then drive you up to the wine region. You will visit five vineyards, see bottling in progress, walk around wine casks, stop at a lovely farm for lunch and end the tour at an organic farm where you can buy eggs πŸ™‚ And you get to cuddle dogs!

2. Cape Point – we took the Cape Explorer tour with CitySightseeing. Cape Point is supposed to offer amazing ocean views however, the day we visited was overcast. You can also hike to the Cape of Good Hope with your guide, which we did despite the rain and although it wasn’t the best day the weather turned the hike into a bit of an adventure

3. African Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach – Cape Explorer will also stop at Boulders Beach where you can get up close and see penguins in their natural habitat. Over the years the penguin colonies in South Africa have deteriorated but efforts are being made to restore the habitats. We really enjoyed it and the penguins are so cute!
