(Cape Town day tour)(CODE: SCCM)

Dive through some of the most scenic mountain passes in Cape Town in an all nature safari vacation package

These all inclusive cape town holiday packages are designed to showcase a few of the most spectacular cape mountain passes and views of the Western Cape. We travel through the areas where the world renowned Cape Apples, South African dried fruit, the finest export grapes, and a variety of wines are produced. The town of Paarl serves one of the best wine producing areas in the Cape, and Wellington at the foot of the Drakenstein Mountains is the centre of the dried fruit industry. The Bainskloof Mountain Pass offers many scenic views. The Breede River Valley on the other side is the principal export grape growing area in the country.

The second mountain pass we travel through is the Du Toit’s Kloof Pass skirting the magnificent gorge, rich with indigenous mountain flora. At the summit we have a spectacular kaleidoscope of the Fairest Cape with Table Mountain in the distance. We travel through the Franschhoek Valley, arguably one of the most beautiful valleys in the world, where wine farms still bear original French names as do their wines. The winding Franschhoek Pass offers striking views of the valley. Further along, we travel through the apple orchards of Grabouw where the famous Cape Apples originate from. After a visit to the Apple Museum, we return to Cape Town via Sir Lowry’s Pass where we have a full view of False Bay, the Peninsula and Cape Point.

Other tours you may be interested in; Sani Pass Tour,  other Cape Mountain Passes. The Sani Pass is probably the most impressive pass in South Africa as one can only traverse it with a 4 x 4 vehicle to the top which is close to 3000 metres (10 000ft) above sea level which is in the kingdom of Lesotho! We have lunch at the highest pub in Africa and on a very clear day can see the Indian Ocean around 200km to the east!

Another excellent mountain pass is the Swartberg Mountain pass just north of the town of Oudtshoorn. It is a dirt (unsurfaced) road which are open to the public, but should not be driven by the faint-hearted.  It has amazing views though and can be done in conjunction with the Meiringspoort pass, a cutting through the mountain with  the road (surfaced and in good condition) crossing the river 24 times and cliffs rising high above on either side with rock formations not seen often!
