Day 4
Cape Town – 2 optional tours available ( extra cost)

• Franschhoek Wine Tram Experience
• Walk To Freedom & Robben Island Full Day Tour

Optional tour 01. Walk To Freedom & Robben Island Full Day Tour

This tour offers a wealth of insight into South African history. It includes a brief educational introduction to Cape Town, one of the world’s most varied and popular cities.

The day commences with a look at the picturesque “Bo-Kaap” – an historic area that became home to many Muslims and freed slaves after the abolition of slavery and is a living cultural museum and home to the oldest mosque in the Southern Hemisphere. We discover the unique culture, lifestyle and personality of the Cape Muslim community and their contribution to South Africa’s development.

Here we shall walk through the area and stop at the Bo-Kaap Museum which was established in 1978 as a satellite of the SA Cultural History Museum. It was furnished as a house that depicts the lifestyle of a nineteenth-century Muslim family and the local Islamic culture and heritage.

From here we head east into the central business district of the city precinct and stop at the Slave Lodge. Under the umbrella theme, ‘From human wrongs to human rights, exhibitions on the lower level of this museum explore the long history of slavery in South Africa. Through the changing, temporary exhibitions the museum address issues around and raise awareness of human rights.

During the latter part of the morning we examine the area of Zonnebloem, which was District Six and visit the living museum. The District Six Museum, established in December 1994, works with the memories of the District Six experience and with that of forced removals more generally. With the struggle for the land now taking a different form (of the more banal yet intricate logistics, legalities and bureaucratic mechanisms of RETURN which are no longer pitted against apartheid) the museum is now bound to support the process of ‘reinventing’ District Six for the present.

Around 12h30 your tour will arrive at the Nelson Mandela Gateway & Museum, Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. Check in for your ferry trip across the bay to Robben Island for a guided tour of the island as well as a tour of the prison by an ex in-mate.

Experience a unique and leisurely journey through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most distinguished wine estates. Explore the available activities, such as wine tasting or a stroll through the vineyards.

Franschhoek is home to a variety of cellars, from small boutique wineries to large cellars. Enjoy award-winning wines, such as plump reds, elegant whites and delicious sparkling wines, with the perfect accompaniment of excellent food in Franschhoek’s restaurants – Franschhoek is, after all, the Wine & Gourmet Capital of South Africa!

Your story-telling guide will take you on a tour through Franschhoek village, sharing with you the fascinating history of the French Huguenots. He’ll also impart with you his knowledge of wine cultivation in the valley, amidst unparalleled views of the valley and vineyards. When the Huguenots first settled in the Franschhoek Valley more than 300 years ago, they brought with them their knowledge and traditions of winemaking and viticulture from their home country of France, transforming their Franschhoek surroundings into one of the most beautiful valleys around.
