West Coast Safari, Olive, Beer
and Wine Tasting – Day Tour in Cape Town by African Moon Adventures
Only an hour away from Cape Town you can experience the sight of majestic wildlife in their natural habitat, eat delicious olives, drink thirst quenching beers and taste award winning wines. My personal favorite of tours around the Western Cape!
The tour departs at 07h30 from your Cape Town / V&A Waterfront hotel. After a comfortable air-conditioned drive up the West Coast, you will reach Buffelsfontein Private Game & Nature Reserve by 08h30. Enjoy complimentary coffee, tea and juice on arrival.
Your professionally guided tour at Buffelsfontein Private Game Reserve will start at 9am. After an awesome 3 hour game drive in an open top game viewing vehicle, where you will see a variety of different wildlife roaming around, it’s off to Darling Olives for a 40 minute olive tasting, accompanied by a white and red wine taster at the same time.
Not far from the olive farm lies the quaint village of Darling. Here we visit the Darling Brewery. At this modern craft brewery you can taste some of their 13 craft beers and indulge in a lovely casual lunch overlooking the working brewery.
After lunch you’ll head to one of Darling’s fine wine estates for wine tasting. The town and surrounds are the home of vineyard plantings influenced by the nautical conditions of the nearby Atlantic Ocean. Mainly dry land, the plantings yield fruit of huge intensity and flavor, resulting in wonderful wines.
For those with a sweet tooth we will stop off at Darling Sweets and sample their high-quality toffees and caramels that are handcrafted using traditional methods and with no artificial colorants, flavorings or preservatives added, thus making it a ‘clean label’ product.
After this sugar rush, we travel back to Cape Town via Bloubergstrand to admire the most spectacular view over the ocean towards Table Mountain, after which you will be dropped off at your hotel.
