Itinerary Details

Popularly known as the “Mother City”, Cape Town has some of South Africa’s most important history, monuments, and culture. The city’s beauty is complemented by the awe-inspiring Table Mountain, which sits majestically in the background. Cape Town is a modern, cosmopolitan city surrounded by nature. Centered around Table Mountain, one of the New 7 Wonders of the world, the Mother City is known for its beautiful beaches, stunning biodiversity, award-winning food and wine, and sheer variety of experiences on offer.

Together with a warm summer and temperate winter climate and a friendly community, the Western Cape and the Mother City are an ideal holiday destination throughout the year.

Your flight arrives in Cape Town today, and our team stands ready to welcome you upon arrival, as this will be a day for you to relax and acclimate before exploring the city and surroundings the next day.

You will be collected by our guide this morning to visit historic locations such as the Bo-Kaap, the Slave Lodge, Company Gardens, District Six and more, which will give a comprehensive historical background of Cape Town, and the Dutch mercantile empire of the 17th and 18th centuries.

We will make our way to the Table Mountain National Park and go up to the top of Table Mountain. There is a cableway to the top with a revolving cable car going to the top of the almost 4000 feet high “table”. The impressive presence of Table Mountain, flanked by the legendary Devil’s Peak and historical Signal Hill, stands proudly above the city. The vegetation is all from the Cape Floral Kingdom one of the five unique plant kingdoms in the world and the smallest. If the mountain is wearing its “tablecloth” of cloud or if there are high winds the cableway closes. In this case, this activity will be pushed on to one of your other days in Cape Town.

The city Centre is the pulse of the Mother City, providing the lifeblood of the surrounding areas. It is a melting pot of diversity and culture, a smorgasbord of historical influences and a place like no other on earth. If you really want to get underneath the skin of Cape Town, you’ll need to start in the city and the afternoon offers time to do so. From coffee shops and markets to trendy lunch-spots and sophisticated nightclubs, the city is where it all happens. Bree Street is a lively hub of restaurants and bars, while Long Street continues to be a popular strip, combining clubs, bars and quirky shops selling everything from books to antiques.

The CBD is where it all happens. A combination of work and play, it is where everything comes together.

Your tour today exposes you to more than just the stunning views of sea and mountains, as you head to the Cape Point and the Cape of Good Hope amongst other places. The Cape of Good Hope the furthest point south on the peninsula.

We enter Cape Point Nature Reserve which is one of our national parks with many species of antelope and many other animals. We also pass the city’s famed beaches of Camps Bay and Clifton, before heading to Chapman’s Peak Drive. This impressive 15km route cuts into the jagged mountains surrounding Hout Bay harbour, offering unspoiled views of the Atlantic Ocean.

The tour will also see us driving through Simonstown; a picturesque naval port where the South African navy is docked, and you will visit Boulders Beach with its famous African Penguins before returning to Cape Town for the evening at your leisure.

Today’s tour offers you an in-depth education about the town of Franschhoek, Stellenbosch, as well as the winelands in the region.

Your morning will start off with a guided drive through to Franschhoek, but our first wine farm for a wonderful scenic tour and wine tasting is in Stellenbosch. We then head to the culinary capital of South Africa, Franschhoek. Here we learn how the French Huguenots settled in this valley and influenced South Africa’s wine making history. This, only to be followed by a tasting at an award-winning estate and a beautiful lunch. Franschhoek offer an impressive selection of world-class restaurants offering everything from classic French cuisine to modern South African fare.

We’ll be sure to visit the Huguenot Memorial Museum, which tells the story of the French Huguenot refugees who settled in the area in the 17th and 18th centuries and take a scenic drive through the mountains to admire the picturesque views of this cozy and unique place.

Beyond wine and food, Franschhoek has plenty to offer visitors. We’ll take a stroll through the charming streets of the town, admiring the colonial-style architecture and picturesque gardens while visiting one of the many boutique shops. You’ll have the entire morning to explore more of Franschhoek before we head to the airport for your regional flight from Cape Town to Windhoek.

You will be collected at the airport and transferred to Windhoek, which is the capital and largest city of Namibia. It is in central Namibia in the Khomas Highland plateau area, at around 1,700m (5,600 ft) above sea level and is almost exactly at the country’s geographical centre. Your guide will familiarize you regarding the area and provide all crucial information.

Windhoek has developed at the site of a permanent hot spring known to the indigenous pastoral communities. It developed rapidly after Jonker Afrikaner, Captain of the Orlam tribe, settled here in 1840 and built a stone church for his community.

We start our Namibian adventure with a drive south-west to the Namib Naukluft Park, one of the most scenic landscapes in Namibia. In 1966 “Game Reserve No. 3” was de-proclaimed, and the Namib Desert Park was established in its stead. The Namib Desert Park included a small area north of the Swakop River where the Welwitschia grow, as well as the Moon Landscape east of Swakopmund. In 1979 two more large areas were added. The Naukluft Mountain Zebra Park was included such that the Naukluft Mountains now formed part of the protected area. It previously comprised 14 commercial farms that were bought by government to protect the Hartmann Mountain zebra.

On route to the Sesriem area, which is the gateway to the mighty dunes of Sossusvlei, we will traverse the Great Escarpment, where will also have a brief stop to take more of Namibia’s beauty in.

Solitaire is a great stopover for a lunchtime snack and houses one of the most famous bakeries in the country, which is situated in the heart of the Namib Desert. We will arrive in the late afternoon at our lodge, and so you will have a chance to recover from the long drive before we enjoy a lovely dinner in the Namib Desert.

This morning, we will head into the Sossusvlei National Park, as we depart quite early and drive into this great sand sea this morning. We embark on a short journey in discovering the famous Deadvlei and Sossusvlei areas, but before we get there, our stopover is dune 45 where our guests will have a chance to climb this 80m (263ft) high dune. We will walk amongst the great dunes and photograph this captivating landscape. We may also decide to climb one of the World’s highest climbable dunes, the ‘Big Daddy’.

In the afternoon when the temperatures have subsided, we will visit the Sesriem canyon, another amazing geological feature in the area before our wonderful buffet dinner.

We depart from Sesriem early this morning, maybe even catching a delightful sunrise during our breakfast. On our way to Swakopmund, we briefly stop at the Tropic of Capricorn for some memorable photographs and continue onto the two geologically unique mountain passes, the Gaub and Kuiseb Mountain passes. 

Upon arrival in Swakopmund, we will have some time for lunch and thereafter a chance to explore the monuments of this historical city, as well as the Swakopmund Museum via a short walking tour. In the late afternoon you will have time to relax for at the beach and then head out to discover an assortment of cuisines which Swakopmund has to offer when we go for a seaside dinner.

We have booked a Dolphin Cruise on the catamaran for you this morning after an early breakfast at 07:00. You will be collected and head out to Walvis Bay at 08:00 for your Dolphin tour, where you will be able to see and learn about the dolphins, Cape fur seals, the Namibian oyster farming industry and marine life of the Namibian Atlantic Ocean.

Our journey this afternoon takes us northeast of Swakopmund, to Mount Etjo Safari Lodge, which is situation inside the Okonjati Game Reserve, one of the first private game reserves established in Namibia, founded by world-renowned conservationist Jan Oelofse.

The Okonjati Game Reserve pays homage to a huge population of wildlife, and a large variety of bird species. The Mount Etjo Safari Lodge is where the most important Declaration towards Namibia’s Independence was signed in 1989 (The Mount Etjo Declaration).

A lion feeding activity is booked for you this evening!

We will wake up quite early morning for a light breakfast before going on the game drive, and then be back at our lodge for a full breakfast and have plenty of time to unwind before lunch and finally go on our late afternoon game drive. This will give us another opportunity to catch a glimpse of what we might have missed on the previous game drive(s). Okonjati Game Reserve houses a large population of wildlife, including hippopotamus, Black Wildebeests and many more which are not found in the famous Etosha National Park.

We will also hope to see some lion prides, elephants, antelopes, and other carnivores. Careful management of the Okonjati Game Reserve has ensured the recovery of the ecological balance between vegetation, herbivores, and predators, so that the numbers and diversity of the species here lead to sustainable land utilization and socio-economic benefits for all in the area. After learning so much about the Okonjati Game Reserve, we head back to our lodge for another fabulous dinner at our lodge.


We have come to the end of our tour and heading south on the B1 road to the capital city of Windhoek but transiting via Okahandja, and here we will have a brief stop as this town is home to Namibia’s largest wood carving and craft market.

We will get to the Windhoek around noon, and you can enjoy a lovely sunset from your favourite spot in the city, alternatively you’ll be transferred to the airport if you are flying back on this day (in which case, we recommend an late afternoon or evening flight).
