Days 2 - 4 Cape Town (3 nights)
Surrounded by the pounding Atlantic Ocean and overlooked on all sides by the dramatic precipice of Table Mountain, Cape Town is a vibrant, fun and cultural city. Enveloped by the stunning Twelve Apostles mountain range, the oldest city in South Africa is full of charm: the Victoria &Alfred Waterfront is a bustling marina full of restaurants and shops, the cobbled walkways and colonial buildings are a genteel contrast to the wild and isolated majesty of Table Mountain and its pretty, sunnier little sister Signal Hill, which affords amazing views across the Atlantic Seaboard and onwards to Robben Island. There is so much to uncover to truly appreciate the Mother City. You will have three full days to experience the city and its many cultural and historic influences. We'd advise taking to higher ground as your first stop: a panoramic view across the city's various districts from Table Mountain is a great way to get your bearings. Next, head south to Cape Point where the two mighty oceans meet, en route to the penguins at Boulders Beach. Cape Town is an ideal base to explore the surrounding area from. From city to farmland and onwards to the beach: the Cape's coastline is breathtakingly beautiful.
 Meals: Breakfast

 

Day 5 -6 (2 nights) Franschhoek.

Once a sleepy country retreat, the village began experiencing a boom in the 1990s, and property prices have sharply increased. The ideal summer weather, snowy peaks in winter and proximity to Cape Townhave turned Franschhoek into one of South Africa's most sought after residential addresses.

Franschhoek is notable for having some of the top restaurants in the country within its borders. This fact, together with the strong wine culture, and pristine natural and architectural beauty has made Franschhoek into what many describe as the "food and wine capital" of South Africa. The city hosts one of the TOP 50 restaurants in the world, according to the "S.Pellegrino world's 50 best restaurants"-ranking and a famous Belgian Pâtisserie for Belgian pralines.
