After breakfast, we’ll return to Johannesburg and get a flight to Cape Town. We’ll check into our hotel in De Waterkant which is close to the famous V&A Waterfront. De Waterkant is Cape Town’s gay suburb and it has a lot of gay nightlife to explore.

In the evening we’ll dine at a top restaurant in Cape Town.

Day 6: Wine Tasting in Stellenbosch and Franschoek

It’d be rude to travel to South Africa without trying the wine. So, today we’ll be heading to the Winelands for a spot of wine tasting. We’ll also visit quaint colonial towns as we sample South Africa’s finest.

Evening at leisure in Cape Town.

Day 9: Boulders Bay and the Penguins

On our last full day we’ll visit the Cape Peninsula. Here we’ll visit the penguins of Boulder Beach. The best viewing point is actually Foxy Beach. These penguins are beyond cute but don’t get too close – their beaks are very sharp.

We’ll have a seafood lunch and return to Cape Town. Here we’ll have a farewell meal and maybe a drink or three in the local gay bars.
