This Signature Journey will start in Cape Town, where you will experience the “Mother City” with all its history, amazing architecture and wonderful culinary delights.

During your stay at a locally renowned hotel you will also have access to wine from our very own private wine lockers.
You will continue down the coast towards the Walker Bay region and be in awe of the beautiful coastline that stretches out from Cape Town to Hermanus. Hermanus is one of the most popular land-based whale watching sites in the world – August to November are the best times to see these gigantic mammals. Should you be the more adventurous type, then coming face-to-face with a Great White Shark will definitely be part of your trip and we will happily arrange a Shark Cage Diving experience. During your stay you will fly along the Southern Coast in a light aircraft, viewing the southernmost tip of Africa.

The beautiful town of Franschhoek will be your home in the Winelands. Franschhoek is also the culinary hub of Africa and Iconic Journeys will ensure that you dine at only the finest restaurants.
Your next stop on this journey will be at Tswalu Kalahari Reserve.
