Hiking up Table Mountain, Sample world-famous South African wines Cape Town and the Cape Peninsula
There is a land at the end of the African continent where mountains and oceans meet, where some of the best wine in the world is produced and where penguins nest not far from the continent?s greatest city. This land is South Africa?s Western Cape. This trip combines the very diverse elements which make the Western Cape such an exciting region to explore. Starting in Cape Town we hike up the back route to the top of Table Mountain, visit Cape Point where two oceans meet, go wine tasting in Stellenbosch, and go on hikes in the Du Toit and Cederberg Mountains. In the evening there is time to relax and enjoy a good meal on the Cape Town Waterfront or in some of the great wine estates.
What makes this trip responsible?
We use local leaders and locally trained grooms in each of the areas visited, and this directly benefits the local communities. We use all locally owned and run accommodation on this trip. This contributes directly to the local communities as local staff are employed and locally produced and sourced goods are bought for the accommodation benefiting the wider community. We visit a number of national parks and other conservation areas on this trip. The entrance fees of these contribute to local conservation work.
