Debark the ship and transfer to Stellenbosch. We leave Cape Town this morning and head towards the famous Cape Winelands set below the dramatic range of mountains known as the “Hottentots Holland”. Whitewashed homesteads nestling under avenues of oaks, rolling green hills covered with wild flowers, fertile valleys alive with the sounds of surging streams, restaurants with French names and Dutch flavours… such is the setting of the Winelands, home of some of the world’s finest wines and Stellenbosch, the second oldest town in South Africa after Cape Town.
