The Grape Escape: Cape Town & Winelands self-drive
This trip combines the chequered history and natural beauty of Cape Town with the laid-back, rolling countryside of the Winelands region. Starting in Cape Town, you can spend your days sightseeing, perhaps taking the cable car up Table Mountain, or visiting the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Meanwhile, a guided tour of Robben Island by a former inmate provides you with an insider’s view of what life was like for Nelson Mandela during his imprisonment. Just a short drive away, the town of Franschhoek in the Winelands makes for an indulgent stay as you hop between the local wineries sampling the region’s produce and tuck into some of South Africa’s finest cuisine.
