Cape Agulhas is the southernmost tip of Africa where the Atlantic and the Indian Oceans meet. It is possible to combine your wine tour with a sightseeing tour to visit this bucket list location.
Our half-day trip to Cape Agulhas includes a visit to the monument at the southernmost tip, the lighthouse and a local shipwreck, and a stop for lunch at a local restaurant or wine estate. The road from Gansbaai takes you through artist town Baardskeersbos, missionary town Elim and coastal town Struisbaai.
Our full-day sightseeing trip will introduce you to even more towns and activities, including visiting local wine estates, and can be customised to include any activity in the area. For example we can show you the historical town square in Bredasdorp, visit the Shipwreck Museum, look for stingrays in the Struisbaai harbour or go to the brewery in Napier.
The historical village of Napier hosts the largest sundial in South Africa, which is also the only vertical one in the country. We will show you around the missionary town Elim, the second oldest in South Africa. Elim is a pretty, well-preserved town with a church from 1835 and the oldest working clock in South Africa, while the water mill from 1833 has the largest wooden water wheel in the country.
Stanford is a National Heritage Site, with well-preserved and renovated Cape Victorian and Edwardian style houses and buildings. We will show you around town, tell you the story of Sir Robert Stanford and give you opportunity to browse the shops, maybe do some antique shopping.
