CAPE TOWN Cape Town, lovingly known as the mother city, is South Africa’s oldest City and without doubt one of the world’s most beautiful. This is the city that is home to the spectacular Table Mountain, the once notorious Robben Island,the magnificent Kirstenbosch Gardens and the splendid Cape Point. Situated at the South Western Tip of South Africa, it is a city of immense natural beauty. It is also a city that teems with a fascinating cross section of colourful cultures. Good weather, an outdoor lifestyle, a vibe all its own, Cape Town has it all,from culture to township tours, you will never be bored in this energetic and fascinating city.

Attractions When it comes to tourist attractions, Cape Town ,has a mind boggling array of things to do and see. • Starting with Table Mountain, this is a must do! The official new 7th wonder of Nature, the views from the top of this mountain are breath-taking. The cable car ride to reach its peak is hugely popular with tourists but if you so wish, you can hike to the top. • A tour of Robben Island is another must as this takes you right to the prison cell where the iconic Nelson Mandela was once incarcerated in his fight to free South Africa from apartheid. Used to house many a political prisoner in its day , island and prison tours are conducted by previous inmates imprisoned alongside Nelson Mandela. It was declared a world Heritage site in 1997. • Another natural world heritage site is where one of the world’s greatest botanical gardens can be found, the Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. It’s time to pack your picnic basket and delight in the diverse variety of South Africa’s magnificent flora to be found right here. • South Africa’s most visited tourist destination is the V and A Waterfront. This is where nature and consumerism can be said to collide. A seemingly endless number of top class boutiques and chain stores are mixed with entertainment venues and more than 80 restaurants in a prime position that

offers incredible vistas of the ocean from every floor. Abuzz with activity and a vibrant night life,the V and A Waterfront, like New York , never sleeps. • For an encounter with nature, visit Cape Point at the most south westerly tip of Africa. Beautiful bays and undulating green hills make up this narrow slither of land. Stay awhile and catch site of pelagic birds, baboons, eland and even zebra.

Activities Adventure & Sports Visitors can choose to indulge in extreme activities or simply while away the time, taking in the eclectic mix of cultures at one of the many vibrant outdoor cafes. • Scuba dive in the Two Oceans Aquarium and come face to face with turtles, stingrays, sharks yellowtail, dusky kob and black and white musselcracker . • See what life is like for many South Africans in the informal settlements of Khayelitsha, Gugulethu. Lana or Nyanga. Township tours arehugely popular with tourists and afford you the chance of purchasing exquisite locally handcrafted goods and tasting truly traditional South African fare in a shebeen or township diner.

CAPE WEST COAST A region of diverse landscapes where history is intertwined with modern-day living. Spanning a distance of 400km, the Cape West Coast offers a unique diversity of scenery, activities and adventures and is just a scenic one-hour drive from Cape Town. Living in harmony with nature is a way of life in this visually intriguing region of the Western Cape, where the magic unfolds over every endless stretch of pristine coastline, a magnificent azure-coloured lagoon, blooming orchards, undulating wheat fields, rock formations and ancient paintings, and rolling vineyards. 30


The Coast The pride of the eco-conscious region is the fascinating West Coast National Park and Langebaan Lagoon. The Park abounds with birdlife and small game, but it is in August and September each year, when the West Coast dons its technicolour coat of wildflowers, that it is transformed into a kaleidoscopic wonderland; a phenomenon that draws thousands of visitors from far and wide.

Cape West Coast

The Park is an historic treasure chest, cemented by the discovery of two perfect, 117 000-year-old footprints, dubbed ‘Eve’s footprints’. Visit the quaint seaside towns of Velddrif and Paternoster and climb to the top of the Cape Columbine lighthouse to see the multi-coloured fishing boats bobbing up and down among the waves. Elands Bay at the mouth of the Verlorenvlei exudes old world charm, remains unspoiled and is a surfing hotspot. Verlorenvlei is a wetland of great importance, abounds with birdlife and is a recognised Ramsar site.

festivals as well as several land and sea-based sporting events. It is to the Cape West Coast of South Africa where one will go to experience it all - adventure, heritage, and culture, wide open spaces and miles of unspoilt beaches, bokkoms and crayfish, carpets of veld flowers during springtime, majestic mountains, Rooibos tea and wine and dancing “Die Riel” with the locals.

The Countryside The scenically spectacular hinterland is a must when visiting the region. Riebeek Valley is a haven for artists and a favourite among diners who enjoy both traditional and international cuisine. No visit to the West Coast would be complete without a visit to ‘Evita se Perron’ in Darling.

The Mountains Explore the Cederberg Mountains and the 71 000 hectare Cederberg Wilderness Area and get up close and personal with nature while admiring mystical, ancient San rock paintings, or just enjoy the silence as you stand in awe of the towering Groot Winterhoek Mountains. Head off to the Namaqua West Coast coastal region for whale watching, fishing, bird watching and carpets of multi-hued spring flowers. Tempt your taste buds over a feast of bokkoms, crayfish and snoek, or enjoy a glass of wine at one of the excellent cellars stretching across the whole region: There are several wine routes: Cape West Coast Wine Route (North and South), Swartland Wine & Olive Route and Darling Wine & Art Experience. Year-round mild weather and endless sunny days encourages the great outdoors activities such as

FRANSCHHOEK

reath-taking scenery, warm hospitality, world-class cuisine, finest wines, idiosyncratic artists, and a small village atmosphere: These are the hallmarks of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley in the heart of the Cape Winelands. Spectacular vineyards cover these mountains, settled more than 300 years ago by the French Huguenots, who brought with them their age-old French wine and food culture. This is a valley rich in history centred around a picturesque village of friendly, welcoming people. The diverse spectrum of visitor accommodation ranges from internationally renowned auberges and guesthouses to self-catering cottages on wine farms and much more besides. In the village you will find bespoke fashion boutiques, jewellery studios and unique crafts, art and antique shops and galleries. Huguenot Street, the aptly named main street, is lined with coffee shops and restaurants. Take a journey of discovery on the Food and Wine Route, enjoy our unique Artisan Food Route, or experience Rond en Bont, our cultural route. Visitors can also indulge in the only Cap Classique Route in South Africa. Or treat yourself to one of the four special Mystery Weekends. Join us for one of our many festivals covering food and wine, art, literature, music, and outdoor. Less than an hour from Cape Town Franschhoek is the perfect base for your exploration of the entire Cape Winelands region.

ROBERTSON

he Breede River Valley fits every literary cliché in the book. “Heaven on earth,” “breathtakingly beautiful” and “must-see” can all be used to describe this exceptional region, but whereas in most cases these phrases are ill-used, the Robertson Valley will not disappoint. With over 160 years of history, Robertson has grown into one of the most attractive Cape Winelands town, with Victorian buildings, jacaranda-lined streets, vineyards banked with beautiful roses, columns of red and yellow cannas as well as bright bougainvilleas. The region may be best known for it’s wines but the variety of attractions and activities combined with spectacular scenery and the relaxed hospitality of the people ensures visitors an unforgettable stay. A variety of accommodation is available to suit all needs, from backpackers to 5 star hotel, guests houses, bed & breakfasts, farm accommodation and much more. Our famous wines The Robertson Valley forms part of the longest wine route in the world, Route 62. The area is blessed with limestone rich soils and a diversity of terror where well managed vineyards are rooted. In the cellars, world class wines are handcrafted in a variety of styles. Some of the best Chardonnay and Shiraz among other internationally acclaimed white and red wines are found here. The large number of cellars, co-operatives and private estates in this area will be a treat for all wine lovers. Not only are the wines full of character - but so are the winemakers. They love what they do, and it shows!

STELLENBOSCH A Town for all Seasons

Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and arguably the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in South Africa. History is reflected in the neo-Dutch, Georgian and modern-Victorian architecture that bear witness to a proud and dignified heritage. There is a village atmosphere and leisurely lifestyle surrounded by nature, yet Stellenbosch is a mere 50km drive from cosmopolitan Cape Town. Endless stretches of pristine white beach are within a 20 minutes’ drive. The mild weather and unique terroir is ideal for cultivating grapes and the region has produced worldclass wines that have amassed countless international awards over the years. Brandy, one of South Africa’s finest products, is distilled in various cellars throughout the winelands. The tranquil, friendly town offers a plethora of activities and events for young and old, the adventurer, nature-lover, music and art-lover, and history buff. Unsurpassed scenery with views over vineyards, mountains and orchards provide excellent photographic opportunities. In summer, jagged lines of oak trees etched against white walls transform the streets into cool, shady tunnels. Stroll along the streets and secluded lanes and soak up the atmosphere. Mingle with the locals at an open-air coffee shop or bistro, or titillate your taste buds with fine local fare or international cuisine at one of over 80 restaurants and eateries. Hike through vineyards and along mountain trails that have been the source of inspiration to poets and artists for centuries, or relax at one of the many health resorts and spas located in the town, amid rolling vineyards, or set snugly against a beautiful mountain backdrop.

Falcon Bird Pest Control is a spin-off company from Eagle Encounters. Through our rescue, rehabilitation and conservation work we identified a need for a natural, environmentally friendly form of bird pest control that doesn’t directly or indirectly negatively impact our raptors. We make no use of firearms or poisons, utilizing only safe trapping and scaring methods, allowing nature to take care of nature. This is a non-lethal programme - a natural and effective measure, where the aim is not to kill, but to condition and ultimately deter using live birds of prey to alter the behaviour pattern of pest species such as pigeons, starlings and geese. The presence of our hawks over-populates the area with predators, which causes the nuisance birds to adopt new patterns of behaviour.

CAPE AGULHUS

Discover Cape Agulhas

Cape Agulhas covers 2 411 square kilometres of extraordinary beauty: generous lands, sleek wildlife, uninhibited skies, friendly faces, sumptuous cuisine and an energy that flows strong in the veins of those who inhabit this mystical land where magnetic forces ebb and flow. Here two mighty oceans meet with the gentlest of touches. Mountains and meadows, sand dunes and salt pans lie side by side in the turquoise sea, fish gather and whales play. In the kaleidoscope of coloured fields, fat tailed sheep graze, life giving grains ripen and grape juice deepens into award winning wines amongst indigenous fynbos and generous rivers. But to understand the pulse of this region, it is necessary to tap into the historical and cultural birth of the Southernmost Tip of Africa. Visit ancient fish traps and middens that tell of a life before time. Ghost of violent shipwrecks whisper of man’s quest to discover and conquer. Cape Agulhas is indeed a region deeply steeped in contrast, memories and exotic influences.

SWELLENDAM

The Republic of Swellendam

Is one of South Africa’s best-kept secrets and there’s truly something for everyone, whether you’re a history buff, sports fanatic, wildlife fan, adrenaline junkie, birder, wine and liqueur lover, foodie, biker, hiker, art lover, or just looking for a family break. Following in the footsteps of the rebellious burghers of Swellendam in 1795, Swellendam re-declared itself a Republic in 2011: a Republic which draws together the towns and villages that make up the Greater Swellendam Area – Swellendam, Suurbraak, Barrydale, Buffeljags, Stormsvlei, Malgas and Cape Infanta. Each of these seven towns has a unique history and a different landscape – offering tourists a huge variety of experiences. This Republic stands for all that is important to the people who live there: community, unity, love, art, music, good food, and beauty. It is a Republic in which people show that they care about one another and about the environment in which they live, and that they treasure wildlife and nature. Surrounded by Nature Reserves and National Parks, every day spent in this stunning area revitalises and uplifts the jaded city dweller, while providing quality in terms of activities, accommodation and cuisine. The people of these lovely ‘dorpies’ look forward to welcoming you to their very special Republic, and invite you to share it with them.

THEEWATERSKLOOF T

heewaterskloof is an agricultural region covering the towns of Grabouw, Villiersdorp, Botrivier, Genadendal, Greyton, Caledon, Tesslesdal, and Riversonderend.

The region of Theewaterskloof is recognised for its fruit and wine farms. Elgin and Grabouw together comprise the apple-growing centre of the Cape, and Bot River’s Chenin Blanc wines win international awards. The area lends itself to outdoor sports like mountain biking, hiking, cross-country marathons, water skiing, boating and fishing. A number of towns on the route fall within the Cape Floral Kingdom World Heritage Site, giving visitors access to the Green Mountain Eco Route (the world’s first biodiverse wine route) and the Groenland Mountain Conservancy in the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve.

CAPE GARDEN ROUTE AND KLEIN KAROO

THE NATURE LOVER’S PARADISE AND HOLIDAYMAKER’S MECCA. Whether you’re travelling with parents, aunts, uncles, daughters, sons or all on your lonesome, this scenic stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa is bustling with unique activities. Why do we call the area between Stilbaai and Tsitsikamma ‘The Garden Route’? It’s simple – this is Africa’s Garden.

82


Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo

Rich in culture, natural beauty, adventure, fauna and flora, the Cape Garden Route and Klein Karoo has a little bit of everything for everyone. Near Nature’s Valley you’ll come across the Bloukrans Bridge and you’ll quickly notice why it’s the world’s highest commercial bungee jumping spot! If it’s hair-raising adventure you want, you’ll find it here.

Visit Mossel Bay (which has the mildest climate in world, second to Hawaii) for a look at the Dias Museum Complex which consists of five heritage sites or just stop at The Point for a quick surf with the locals. You can also organise a goose bump-inspiring shark cage diving experience and get up close and personal with the magnificent Great White.

Dusty roads, padkos (snacks in the car) and local restaurants dotted along the route make this a charming journey of discovery. And the biggest discovery will be the amazing people and their wonderful ways. Dig deep into Xhosa culture at Ma Betty’s Xhosa Cultural Experience in Oudtshoorn or Khoi culture at the Khoi Village in Mossel Bay, sign up for some ‘good loving’ on a tour of Knysna’s Rastafarian Township or check out Barry’s Church in Witsand, built in 1852.

Your journey would not be complete without exploring the Cango Caves, the only show cave in Africa. It’s an underground wonder that makes you feel small in the greater scheme of things. - See more at: http://discoverctwc.co.za/discovery_region_landing?RegionID=bJa8lpEu_#sthash. FvOrwJQR.dpuf

HESSEQUA Hessequa - The Explorer’s Garden Route Hessequa is the name given by the indigenous Khoi-San, meaning ‘people of the trees’. The region nestles between the shadow of the Langeberg Mountains and the warm embrace of the Indian Ocean, and stretches from the Breede River in the west to the Gourits River in the east. Throughout the Hessequa region you will experience warm ‘plattelandse’ hospitality, enhanced by world class gourmet goods such as olives, cheese, wine, aloe products and, of course, our very own world first – fynbos gin. The biodiversity of the area holds a pleasant surprise for anyone with a wanderer’s soul. From water adventures and whale watching to mountain biking and hiking, opportunities to explore are endless. You can also delve into the very foundations of history during a visit to Blombos Museum of Archaeology where you can view artifacts used over 75 000 years ago and find out how modern man survived in the area with the help of the indigenous fauna’s unique properties. Come and explore a part of the Garden Route that is still undiscovered. Come and experience the Explorer’s Garden Route!

MOSSEL BAY

162,000 years of holidays in Mossel Bay

Why does Mossel Bay call itself the Do stuff Destination? - “Simple,” said Mossel Bay Tourism’s Marcia Holm. “Because there’s more to do than you’d expect from a small coastal town in South Africa.” And why is that? “Because of the weather (with more than 300 days of sunshine in every 365, every day’s a beach day in Mossel Bay); because we’ve got more than 60 km of sandy beaches; and because of the warm Indian Ocean - but also because we’re just 30 km from the nature reserves of the Outeniqua Mountains. And because it’s one of history’s most important places, too, of course. “That’s correct,” said Ms. Holm. “We know from genetic research that all humans alive today are descendants of a small, core population that lived in Africa around 162,000 years ago. And research which began in the Pinnacle Point Caves at the turn of the century (and which involves more than forty scientists in many fields from corners over the world) has shown that those people lived here, in the Garden Route and Little Karoo, and that this is where modern human behaviour - culture and advanced technology - first emerged. “And it’s wonderful to think that the things that made it possible for those early modern humans to thrive here - the weather, the beach, the plant-life, the animals - are exactly the same things that make Mossel Bay such an attractive destination today. “Which is why we can boast about 162,00 years of holidays in Mossel Bay.”

PLETTENBERG BAY Introducing the Plett Winelands…

It was a busy 2014 with the introduction of the Plett Winelands and the first Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival. 2015 promises to be just as busy with the launch of the Plett Wineland Trails and the second Sasfin Plett Wine & Bubbly Festival! The Plett Winelands was developed by Plett Tourism to provide holiday makers with more reasons to visit Plett out of season. Working hand in hand with the Plettenberg Bay Winegrowers Association, the aim was to create a premium wine and lifestyle experience that reinforces Plett’s positioning as South Africa’s preferred quality leisure experience. ANOTHER DIMENSION IS THE PLETT WINELANDS the most exciting thing to happen to the SA wine industry for decades? Plettenberg Bay is South Africa’s smallest wine growing region with 58 hectares of the 100 000 hectares planted countrywide. Plett’s wine region is the country’s most easterly cultivar and stretches 57 km along the thin coastal strip from Harkerville to the Crags. It is small, young, exciting and thriving and there can be little doubt that it is South Africa’s most scenic wine region. The first grapes in the area were planted by Peter Thorpe on his Bramon Estate in the Crags, on Plett’s west side. His property had the soils, slope and climate for wine so the decision seemed fairly logical. Wine agri tourism in the Plett Winelands is in full swing with more and more farms now offering meals or cheese and olives with their tastings. Most have breathtaking views of the sweeping seas or the Tsitsikamma Mountains. There are also two with daily views of African elephants, now that’s a first for wine tasting! All of Plett’s wine farms are within a 30 kilometre radius – allowing one to navigate and experience as much as possible in the winelands. Plett’s wine route farms are almost all worked under the watchful eye of the owner’s who seem to have lives with kids and tasks and who go their about daily activities while living on the farm. This you will not experience at the larger historical estates found in the Cape where the owners sit in boardrooms and watch their investments, being run by strangers, from a far. As you sip a glass of local MCC, you may reflect on how the Plett Winelands may soon claim the title as the most beautiful in the land but soon it may be the most talked about as well. Plett Tourism will soon be launching the Plett Winland Trails. If you’re a keen hiker who likes to get outdoors but still enjoy a few of life’s luxuries, this may be your next favourite activity. The idea behind the Plett Wineland Trails is to hike, cycle or horse ride along a set of trail connecting wine farms during the day and then finish at select accommodation to enjoy a nice dinner, a hot shower, a good night sleep and then after breakfast head back out to pick up where you left off the day before. Guests will experience wine tasting rooms, marine, bird and indigenous wildlife and will have the opportunity to discover beautiful scenic views including geology and forests, paleontology and other eco attractions.
