A Gift to those who love the Sea 

from R 6500,00 pp 

Your Ocean adventure weekend includes car hire, accommodation and two ocean activities.

Get your adrenaline pumping as you embark on your Curated Ocean Adventure Exploration. Enjoy the big ocean animals and stunning views of the Cape Peninsula from off shore. Divers and snorkelers will have no end of underwater wonders to explore, including sharks, dolphins, penguins, whales and a seal snorkel experience in beautiful Hout Bay. Having a close encounter snorkelling with the Cape Fur Seals of Cape Town as they swim gracefully in their natural environment is incredibly special. The action begins as soon as you enter the water as these furry counterparts swim beside you, often mimicking your movements.

Take a tour through the many museums, Kirstenbosch gardens and national monuments located in the Mother city. Wander through the artisanal markets where you can find artistic curios and experience the laid-back culture of the locals. Then head to one of the many fine dining restaurants for a Cape Malay special.

Undoubtedly one of the most glorious coastal reserves in Africa, the area’s extraordinary beauty and blissful seclusion led ex-President FW de Klerk to choose the location for his ‘Camp David.’ The reserve is also famous for some of the best land based whale watching on the planet. It’s not simply whales either and you’ll also spot sizeable pods of dolphin and all sorts of marine life in this – the ultimate, land-based marine safari. 

 

Each of the seven rooms are located right on a six-kilometre stretch of private beach, complete with stunning rock pools and fish life. There are curated walks with experienced naturalists, an array of fynbos to be discovered, a plethora of marine life to be explored, and a rare vulture breeding colony to be spotted (and that’s without mentioning the whales!)

Wine and Whales

The Robertson Wine Valley is fast becoming the new hero of the South African wine producing regions. Long noted for its exceptional sweet dessert wines, the Robertson Wine Valley is now acclaimed world-wide for its exceptional production of outstanding white (especially Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc) and red wines. 

The lime-rich soils and unique climate give the region the natural attributes to produce outstanding wines, coupled with specific planting of grape varieties suitable to the soil. Near to Swellendam, and with the beautiful backdrop of the Langeberg mountain range, this is an exceptionally pleasant area to visit. 

The 31 wineries are all situated close to one another, and over two-thirds of them are open to the public.  One of the most well-known of the wineries is Graham Beck, whose state-of-the-art cellars and the computerised irrigation system produce some of the finest white and red wines of the region. 

The Robertson Winery is the oldest co-operative in the Valley, and also one of the biggest in the country.  The 42 members deliver some 25,000 tons of grapes, to produce 25 million litres of wine.  The extensive range has won numerous awards and medals.
