Itinerary

Day 3 - 4

Spend your next two nights in Franschhoek at the Holden Manz Wine Estate

Any proud owner of a Franschhoek wine estate would undoubtedly want the finest of gardens to complement their version of a private Eden.  The Holden Manz wine estate is no exception and an abundance of trees line the estate, generating a six-star feel to a thriving five-star wine estate.  The grounds are kept as natural as possible, avoiding over-landscaping and merely bringing out what was already there, retaining the estate’s tranquil ambience.

Day 5 - 6

Continue your journey towards the Garden Route, your next destination, Grootbos Nature Reserve

Luxury in Harmony with Nature

Nestled between mountain and sea, the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve is a five-star eco-paradise showcasing the incredible Flora and Marine life of the Southern Tip of Africa. Home of the "Marine Big 5" - whales, sharks, dolphins, seals and penguins; and with unparalleled floral diversity, Grootbos offers you a one-of-a-kind luxury African experience.

Land-Based Whale Watching

The coastal cliffs and pathways of Hermanus and De Kelders make this one of the best places in the world for land based whale watching, if not the best! The Southern Rights migrate annually from their icey Antarctic feeding ground to our warm, sheltered bays to mate, calve and raise their young. Breaching, tail slapping and lob tailing, the whales turn the bay into a hub of aquatic activity.

With extensive local knowledge and insights, the Grootbos guides take you to all the best viewing sites along the coast. Watch spellbound as mothers, calves and energetic bulls come to within mere metres of the rocky shoreline.

Overnight at Grootbos Nature Reserve - Garden Lodge one bedroom suite Including Accommodation, welcome drink upon arrival, fresh fruit daily in suite, breakfast, light lunch, 5 course dinner, horse riding through Reserve, Guided Walks including fynbos nature tours and Milkwood walks, Nature, marine & coastal drives and walks including the Walker Bay Nature Reserve, De Kelders cliff walk, Klipgat Cave combined with seasonal land-based whale watching (whale watching especially during June – December), Bird watching
