Wine Tours in South Africa
South Africa has some of the best wineries in the world, but no one really considers wine tasting in between spotting lion, elephants and zebras. The vineyards outside of Cape Town offer wonderful value, with affordable bottles and views to get lost in.
You could start about half an hour drive outside of the city and you’re at the start of Cape vineyards, which dates back to the 1600s. Today, this winery is one of the largest in the region. The estates are big and there’s luxury accommodation in the surrounding area.
Whether you’re looking for casual restaurants, gourmet wine tastings or as luxury as it gets – you can get it all without the hefty price tag.
Spend time in wine valleys such as Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, and then go a little further to Swartland, Wellington and Tulbagh. You’re can pick up a bottle for less than $5.
For more luxury African safari wine experiences, add these to your list: Paarl, Robertson, Hermanus Western Cape, McGregor, George, Durbanville, Riebeek-Kasteel, and Wellington.
