Welcome to Cape Town + The Winelands

Surrounded by the vineyards and historic buildings of the esteemed Spier Estate, our charming boutique hotel embodies the true spirit and warm hospitality of the Cape Winelands. The rest of this day is free to enjoy and relax as you wish.
 

After breakfast, your expertly guided, full-day excursion will reveal distinctive facets of this lovely region - where pastoral vineyards and historic towns are set against a beautiful mountain backdrop. In Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second oldest city, you’ll find handsome Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian architecture – and the lively spirit of a university town. Founded in 1692, Babylonstoren is one of the region’s oldest estates, with some of the buildings dating back to its founding days. Delight in the tranquil beauty of its gardens and vineyards, learn about their state-of-the-art winery and sample six of their finest vintages –both white and red.
 
After a delightful farm-to-table lunch at Le Petite Ferme, we’ll spend time at a pioneering self-sustaining non-profit center dedicated to rehabilitating injured and rescued South African raptors. Focusing on conservation, education and reintroducing these magnificent birds back into the wild, Eagle Encounter was founded 20 years ago and offers a chance to see and learn about a variety of South African raptors including Martial Eagles, Black-Chested Snake Eagles, Harriers, and several Falcon species. This evening, we’ll savor the fine cuisine of our hotel’s kitchen, prepared with fresh produce sourced from the Spier’s own organic garden and other nearby farms.  Meals B+L+D

The Cape Peninsula to Cape Town

Queen Victoria Hotel - Cape Town, South Africa

An unforgettable day unfolds as you leave behind the pastoral landscapes of the Winelands to explore the wild coastal beauty of the Cape Peninsula. Travel along the Atlantic seaboard through the pleasant seaside suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton. From the fishing village of Hout Bay, you’ll take a boat to see the Cape Fur Seal colony on Duiker Island. Back on the mainland, the journey along Chapman’s Peak 2,000 feat above the ocean is considered by many to be one of the most spectacular coastal drives in the world!

Enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park and be on the lookout for native animals like Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and inquisitive Baboons. From the iconic Cape Point Lighthouse, you’ll have captivating views of False Bay.
 
After a seaside lunch, visit Boulders Beach for an up-close encounter with African penguins.

With only 32 guestrooms, our stylish boutique hotel is ideally located in the heart of Cape Town next to the lively and sophisticated Victoria & Alfred Waterfront.  Meals B+L

This morning’s city tour begins with the Table Mountain Aerial Cableway… With its unique revolving cars, your ride to the top offers 360° views of Cape Town and Table Bay. From the summit you’ll be able to see the Twelve Apostles, a mountain range with dramatic rocky buttresses that drop sharply to the coast. In the opposite direction, you’ll have an equally impressive view of the 3,200-foot summit of Devil’s Peak. Back in the city, your tour continues with a stroll through the Company’s Garden – an erstwhile fresh produce garden for ships and city residents in the 17th century and now home to the South African Museum, National Gallery and St. George’s Cathedral. Stroll among the bustling market stalls of Greenmarket Square and take in the Grand Parade where Nelson Mandela addressed the nation upon his release in 1990. At the District Six Museum, you’ll learn about this historic area and the forced relocation of its resident during the Apartheid Era.
 
After lunch, the afternoon is yours to enjoy as you wish. Just across the street from your hotel, the V&A Waterfront invites exploration with its wide variety of cafes, boutiques, shops and galleries. This evening, you’ll dine at Africa CafĂ©. Founded in 1992, this pioneering restaurant was the first in the city to specialize in authentic African cuisine from various countries across the Continent.

The History + Heritage of Cape Town

Queen Victoria Hotel - Cape Town, South Africa

Set against the flanks of Signal Hill, the pastel-hued homes and steep cobblestone streets of Cape Town’s Bo-Kaap district offers fascinating insight into dramatic chapters of South Africa’s history. After a leisurely breakfast, your tour begins at the Bo-Kaap Museum where you’ll learn about some of the city’s earliest inhabitant - slaves who where brought over in the1600’s from Dutch colonies in Southeast Asia. From these tragic beginnings, the country’s Cape Malay culture has emerged with unique traditions that are distinct from its Asian, African and Dutch influences. Experience more of this culture as you explore the neighborhood and the local spice market – a great place to learn about Cape Malay cuisine.
