We head north to the Winelands of Paarl and Franschhoek, stopping on the way at the Groot Drakenstein Prison, where Nelson Mandela was released in 1990. Founded by French Huguenot refugees in 1688, Franschhoek is one of South Africa’s oldest and most picturesque towns with a distinctly French flair. The valley’s climate proved ideal for growing vineyards and today, is famed for making some of the country’s finest wines. Here we will do a cellar tour, attend two exceptional wine tastings and enjoy a spot of lunch (own account). The town boasts some of the best restaurants in the Western Cape, so be sure to ask us for recommendations! After a leisurely lunch, we make our way to Stellenbosch, the second oldest European settlement in South Africa after Cape Town. Hundreds of oak trees line these pristine streets, which has earned the town the nickname, Eikestad (City of Oaks). Stellenbosch is famous for its gabled Cape Dutch architecture, which, against the backdrop of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, lend the town an unforgettable charm. If there’s time, we’ll certainly squeeze in a third wine tasting before heading back to Cape Town with some great memories and a great deal of cheer.
