The tour departs for Cape Town, via the Cango Caves, on the iconic Route 62.
After breakfast, guests enjoy an olive farm tour. A tasting, paired with Protea Rose or juice, is offered in the orchard. The tour continues on to the Cango Caves. This 20 million-year-old cave system, an international treasure located in the foothills of the Swartberg Mountains, is 4 kilometers in length and includes an extensive system of tunnels and chambers.
Departing the Cango Caves, the tour traces Route 62, the region’s iconic freeway. Traversing a varied topography, dramatic mountain vistas, the unique splendour of the semi-arid Klein Karoo and tranquil Winelands, Route 62’s claim as South Africa’s own ‘Mother Road’ is difficult to argue.
Enjoy a traditional Wine tasting (own account) and the sweeping views of the Tradouw Valley. Lunch is enjoyed en-route (own account). This leg of the tour ends, late afternoon, at a Cape Town hotel. Guests enjoy dinner at the hotel or a city restaurant (own account).
