To those seeking a taste of luxury on the open road, we recommend embarking on a journey along the breathtaking Chapman’s Peak, a destination renowned for its mesmerizing sunsets. Elect to drive this coastal marvel on your own or contact Classic Rides for a two-hour chauffeur-driven ride in a vintage car, complete with delectable delights and beverages for the road.

Beach Visit

Camps Bay is a charming oasis with its beautiful stretch of white sand, bordered by chic restaurants, clubs, and hotels, with no lack of nightlife activities. We recommend BoVine Wine & Grill House for a delightful culinary experience in the heart of Camps Bay. Despite the potential for cooler temperatures in the ocean, beachgoers have the option to enhance their comfort by renting chairs and umbrellas right on the beach.

Fine Dining

Delight your palate at Fyn Restaurant, an avant-garde establishment offering a neoteric Japanese-African experience. Recognized among the world’s top 50 restaurants, Fyn promises a truly unparalleled fine dining adventure, where every dish is a masterpiece crafted by renowned chef, Peter Tempelhoff. Bookings can be made online.

Premium Wine Tasting

Immerse yourself in the world of wine craftsmanship during a private 1.5 hour tour and tasting on our Estate. One of our senior team members will adeptly showcase our distinctive winemaking philosophy and meticulous process from vineyard to barrel to bottle. This curated tasting journey invites you to savour the distinct character and unparalleled excellence of the full range of our iconic De Toren wines, leaving an indelible mark on any oenophile adventure in the heart of South Africa.

Local Travel Tools

When it comes to transportation, we suggest opting for Uber. This widely embraced mode of transport is favoured by locals for its user-friendly digital platform and extensive coverage across the city.

For dining reservations, we recommend DinePlan. With the majority of Cape Town’s restaurants registered on the app, making reservations is a seamless process, ensuring you secure your spot at the city’s culinary hotspots.

To make the most of both recommendations, we advise downloading these applications onto your mobile device for convenient access and efficient use during your stay in South Africa.

Let this be the prelude to a sojourn that transcends the ordinary.
