Day 2 – Golf at De Zalze
(Optional) Spend the afternoon exploring the vibrant city of colourful Cape Town.
Helpful hint: We know it’s hard to pry yourself from the bustling streets and corner café of the Mother City, but we suggest heading up Table Mountain, via cable car, the first chance you get. The weather dictates the pace for this excursion, and the weather in Cape Town can be unpredictable, so to avoid disappointment, we suggest you head for the ‘table top’ as soon as mother nature gives you the ‘all clear’.

Majeka House 

Design and décor are often features of a hotel rather than the focal point, but it is difficult to not openly gawk at the sublime fixtures at Majeka House, in Stellenbosch.

Stellenbosch, founded in 1679, is a historical treasure trove. Museums, galleries and classic Cape Dutch architecture rest along roads lined with hundreds of oak trees planted over three centuries ago.
