South Africa: Cycling The Cape & Winelands

Widely recognised as one of the most beautiful places in the world, Cape Town and its surrounding countryside and beaches provide a stunning backdrop for this tour. Our unique circular route allows us to take in many of the fantastic sights that the Cape Peninsula has to offer. In addition to Table Mountain and the chance to sample the produce of the world famous wine estates of Stellenbosch, the wild coastline and rugged interior provide some classic riding on peaceful roads with very little traffic. The stunning scenery, a rich cultural history, unique flora, and some unusual wildlife encounters in the form of penguins, plains game, whales (in season) and baboons, make this a fantastic destination to discover by bicycle.
