First up, in Cape Town, you will see the touristic highlights such as Table Mountain and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden – both forming part of the Cape Floral Region, which takes up a mere 0.04% of the world’s land area, yet contains an astonishing 3% of its plant species. Visiting this biodiversity hot spot is sure to be a fascinating experience, thanks to your well-informed guide. Stellenberg gardens are also on the list; this heritage estate is a hidden secret and boasts exquisite formal gardens.

You’ll also explore Cape Town’s vibrant art scene: charming fisherman’s village Kalk Bay; gritty Woodstock with its contemporary galleries; Salt River street art & visit crafters to see their work. You’ll also tour the awe-inspiring, newly opened Zeitz MOCAA, cutting edge Norval Contemporary and the South African National Gallery.

These experiences are all interspersed with lunches at some of the Cape’s premier gourmet and wine destinations.
