T3: Cape Town, Route 62, Garden Route & Winelands

They often say, South Africa is a “world in one country”, this trip shows off some of the contrasts and diversity which make it so. This is a classic circular road trip. • Pack in as much of Cape Town as you can squeeze into 4 days. • Slow it down with a road trip to remote farm villages, enjoying country hospitality in an old-world environment. • Breath in salty Indian Ocean sea air while you stroll long stretches of sandy white beaches • Wind it down in grand style with French style cuisine on a beautiful cape wine farm.

DAY 1
