Cape Town, as the name suggests, is located on South Africa’s Southern Coast and famed for its Mediterranean climate, beauty and relative prosperity. It is also a fabulous place to use a base for a driving expedition of the Cape.
A highlight for the motoring and scenery enthusiasts is the drive from Cape Town to the heart of Stellenbosch wine country which is about an hour heading east, inland from the city. The route is picturesque with rolling hills and farms. The entire region looks classically European with wines that would give Australian vintners something to worry about.
Travellers would also be remiss to leave Africa without a big game safari experience with the ‘& Beyond’s Ngala Private Game Park’ which will surely serve as one your greatest travel memories. Nothing can prepare you for the raw emotion of the first close quarters big predator encounter.
