Cape and Namibia Adventure

Itinerary

Cape and Namibia Adventure

Day 1 - Cape Town

Arrive at any time. Get the most out of your time in Cape Town by pre-booking the South African Wine Tour and Tasting extra. If you do, we recommend booking accommodation for an extra night pre-tour as this activity has an early start time. Please note, due to the timings of this activity, there is a possibility you may miss the welcome meeting on day 1 of your tour - in this case, your CEO will leave you a message detailing what time and where you should meet the next morning.

Day 2 - Cape Town/Lambert's Bay

Head up the Cape's west coast, stopping at the G Adventures supported !Khwa ttu San Culture and Education Centre. Arrive in Lambert's Bay and enjoy an included wine tasting.

Head towards the coast again and on to Lambert's Bay, a picturesque town on the west coast of South Africa. Enjoy an included wine tasting. Learn how to analyze your palates, listen to your taste buds, and how to pair your food with the best wine raised in the foothills of the Cederburg Mountains.
