HERMANUS (Private Full-Day Tour)
Depart the city towards the seaside towns of Strand and Gordon’s Bay, nestled below the slopes of the Hottentots Holland Mountains, with magnificent views across False Bay to Cape Point in the distance.

Continue along the spectacular Marine Drive overlooking this rocky coast, past the white beaches of Koeël Bay and the villages of Rooiels, Pringle Bay and Betty’s Bay. Stop at the Harold Porter Botanical Gardens, with its wealth of indigenous Fynbos plants, including the rare Red Disa, for a mountain walk to the waterfall at Disa Kloof.

Drive over the Bot River to the charming village of Hermanus, pausing in the picturesque Hemel-en-Arde valley whose cool, maritime climate favours the growing of Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay grapes, found at acclaimed wine estates like Bouchard Finlayson, Hamilton Russell and Whalehaven.

Hermanus is known for its abundant sightings of Southern Right Whales, which come in very close to shore to mate and calve (from June to November). There are excellent vantage points from cliff paths that run from one end of the town to the other.

Lunch at a popular seafood restaurant, browse the town’s craft markets, then head back to Cape Town via the verdant apple-growing regions of Grabouw and Elgin, with a final stop on the spectacular Sir Lowry’s Mountain Pass for a panoramic view of the Cape Peninsula.
