The famous Winelands region is an area of spectacular beauty, rugged mountains, fertile valleys, scenic mountain passes, historical monuments and of course acres upon acres of lush vineyards and world-famous wine estates.
A 45-minute drive from Cape Town, the Winelands is easily accessible as a day excursion, but a stay in this region is highly recommended.
In contrast, the seaside town of Hermanus on Walker Bay has become the whale watching capital of South Africa and the once quaint fishing village is a thriving town with an active artistic community and a fascinating cafe culture. Adrenaline addicts may be tempted by the ultimate thrill of Great White shark viewing from within a reinforced steel cage dropped into the teeming shark-infested waters!
Hermanus is in easy driving distance of Cape Town.
