African Sky offers a variety of private tours, safaris and honeymoons that visit the winelands near Cape Town.
The Cape winelands region – also known as the ‘Boland’ – carpets great stretches of valleys and hills some 45 minutes from Cape Town. The leagues of manicured vineyards are thrown into relief by the imposing mountain ranges that surround them, their jagged peaks carving out the sky. As if the natural drama of the area was not inviting enough, the Boland towns are equally handsome and steeped in history. Here you will find some of the best examples of Cape Dutch architecture, painstakingly preserved and easily accessible.
The principal destinations that we include in our Cape winelands tours are the Stellenbosch, Franschhoek and Paarl wine routes. The most illustrious vineyards are nestled around these historic hamlets, as are some of the finest boutique hotels and restaurants in the country. However, if there are alternative wine routes that have caught your eye – like Wellington, Robertson, Durbanville, Darling, Constantia or even the Overberg – we’d be happy to include them in a custom tour of the Cape winelands.
The major benefit of touring the Boland with African Sky is that you can taste cultivars to your heart’s delight without having to trouble yourself with driving. Additionally, as there are such a wealth of farms to choose from, your expert African Sky guide will discuss your preferences with you and ensure that your vineyard visits complement your particular tastes.
