PLEASE NOTE: This description is for a one week add-on in the Stellenbosch winelands region. Other possible add-ons include more time in Cape Town, a guided or self-guided tour along the Garden Route, and a guided tour to Victoria Falls. Ask Barry for details and prices.
Imagine a week in the Napa Valley or Bordeaux, only more exotic and far less expensive.
Most Canadians visiting South Africa want two things. First, they want to see and experience all the amazing and unique things this country has to offer, including a safari in Kruger National Park and a visit to Cape Town, arguably the most spectacular city in the world.
Second, they want to escape winter and bask in the warm African sun. In many cases, as our one and two week tours draw to a close, guests have mused “why on earth are we going home so soon?”
In response, we’ve created SOUTH AFRICA WINELANDS - Add-on to Cape Town.
After a week in Kruger and another in Cape Town, TravelMaven travellers now have the option to spend a self-guided third week in the Western Cape’s famed winelands. There’s no shortage of things to do in this region, whether it’s wine tasting, sight seeing, cycle touring or enjoying all the magnificent restaurants. And after two weeks with our group, we are confident Canadians will feel comfortable tackling South Africa on their own (something we wouldn’t suggest for many newcomers).
Fortunately, there are many lodging options within the walkable core of Stellenbosch, including larger luxury hotels, quaint boutique hotels and self-catering apartments. Rather than picking one hotel for everyone, TravelMaven will provide options, depending on the desires of our traveller.
Our add-on package includes private transfers from the Portswood Hotel in Cape Town to your accommodation in Stellenbosch, 7 nights lodging, and a private transfer to the Cape Town airport at the end of your stay. Hotel stays usually include breakfast, while apartments provide facilities to make your own. Prices will vary depending on lodging, but expect this seven day extension to cost less than $1000 per person.
