Luxury adventure Western Cape South Africa: Cape Town | Whale Coast | Winelands

A visit to Cape Point is a must-do on any Cape Town luxury adventure itinerary


The scenic landscapes of South Africa are legendary and three regions of the Western Cape province at the southernmost tip of the country are particularly blessed in this regard. Made famous by iconic landmarks such as Table Mountain and Robben Island, Cape Town is currently one of the world’s most desirable travel destinations. Pristine white beaches and amazing marine encounters are part of a relaxing stay on the unspoiled Cape Whale Coast. The beautiful Cape Winelands are a scenic and tranquil destination of vineyards and fruit orchards, with majestic mountains as a backdrop. Each of these three regions is unique, and subject to seasonality we recommend combining all three of them into a beautiful Western Cape luxury itinerary. Alternatively, if you are pressed for time, we will help you to choose only one (or perhaps two), from where some of the highlights of the others may be visited on day excursions, with optional helicopter transfers to reduce travel time.
