Wine and Whales
Cape Town | Winelands | Whale Route
This 9 night tour begins in Cape Town, staying at Ellerman House (which has one of the best sea views in the city, if we don’t say so ourselves…). After exploring the Mother City’s popular tourist attractions escape to the Cape Winelands, where you’ll stay on one of the finest wine estates in the country, surrounded by breathtaking mountain vistas and of course… great wine. You’ll end in Grootbos Nature Reserve, on the hills above Walker Bay – a prime whale watching region.
Your best chance of seeing whales is during Whale Season which runs between May and October annually.
