South African Wine Tour

Wind through South Africa's fertile valleys, prized for their renowned vintages, and discover the rustic beauty of sprawling estates shaded by giant oaks and rows of vines running as far as the eye can see. Travel the country's principal wine route and enjoy tastings at some of the excellent vineyards along the way. Begin with a visit to Stellenbosch, South Africa's second oldest town and the historic heart of the country's wine region. First recognized as an ideal location for vineyards in 1679, viticulture has been entwined with the town's history ever since. Also of interest is the town's fascinating variety of architecture, including buildings in Cape Dutch, Georgian, and Victorian styles. Then continue northwest to the old, scenic village of Franschhoek, founded near the Drakenstein Mountains in 1688 by French immigrants, whose descendants eventually supplied highly sought after wine to Napoleon, Bismarck, and even King Edward VII. Stop for lunch on your own, and then enjoy a final tasting before bidding farewell to the wine country and returning to Cape Town.

Approximate tour duration is 8 hours.

We just completed a trip to Kenya Africa March 24-April 3. This trip was incredible. We knew this trip would be special but never expected it to be so amazing. We had one of the best guides Christopher. We had a small group 4 travelers. I always hope to have a guide that goes the extra mile. Christopher did not go the extra mile, he did a 10K . Extremely thoughtful, provided massive information about animals, parks, people of Kenya and culture. Because of our small group we did not have any other guides. No matter what park we were in he was able to provide information. He was excited to show us the animals. He gave me the opportunity to get safely close to the animals so I have amazing photos.

Hi, I completed the survey on our recent South Africa trip, but wanted to add a comment about our travel manager, Renier. Our group of four (and actually our entire group on the tour) could not speak highly enough about Renier. He was super friendly with a great sense of humor. Extremely knowledgeable about every place we went. He loves what he does and it shows!. He found a way to make a group of 23 individuals into a close group in just a couple days. He made safety a number one priority followed closely by making sure we all had a great time and had every need covered. This was our 5th Gate 1 trip and they just keep getting better! We are already looking for our next trip. A tour manager can really make a difference in a trip, and Renier certainly did.Thank you Gate1 for a trip that probably cant be beat!. Please thank Renier for us one more time!

I know you're swamped with travel challenges, but I just want to share my excellent experience in Kenya and Tanzania and thank you for another great Gate 1 trip! We've had many incredible tour managers with Gate 1 and Wolfugan in Tanzania has now taken top spot. He was attentive to our every need, but so much more. He was a wealth of information which he shared in such interesting ways, providing us with great insight into the country, the culture, and the amazing wildlife. He didn't always just answer a question, he sometimes encouraged us to think by asking a question back and truly engaging us in learning. We are avid birders, so we asked him to point out birds along the way that he might not otherwise. His knowledge of all the local birds was beyond my imagination and his ability to spot an interesting bird while driving a game vehicle blew us away. The other two people in our game drive vehicle soon became birders too! His knowledge of the wildlife was superb as expected and his ability to maneuver the vehicle into just the right spot for viewing and even considered the lighting for great photographs allowed me to get the most amazing photographs and memories for a life time. Wolfugan truly went the extra mile to ensure we were having the best experience on drives, in our lodging, and at our meals. He made us comfortable with all of the Covid requirements being managed. He was friendly, personable, obviously very intelligent, and a delight to be around. I've been back home for a week, but my heart is still in Africa. Thank you Gate 1 for another amazing adventure!

My first Safari, but won't be my last. Our Tour Guide, Christopher was fantastic. While filling out my post trip survey, I obviously gave him all "Excellent", but I wanted to write to truly tell you how Christopher made my trip complete. He handled every detail from the moment I landed in Nairobi, to the moment I left. Throughout my stay Christopher was extremely attentive to all of my needs. His knowledge of animals and birds was unbelievable. His insight into the Kenyan people, customs, food and all things Kenyan made the trip complete. His dialogue throughout the trip was educational, inspirational, humorous and enlightening. If I could give Christopher 5 out of 5 stars or 10 out of 10, I would do it without hesitation. Thank you Gate 1 and Christopher. Also, a shout out to Timothy who assisted in our Safari. He was excellent as well.

Thank You for such a wonderful experience! I truly enjoyed every minute of my trip to South Africa October 5th through 16th 2021. Shaun was the tour guide and he was excellent. Shaun was very knowledgeable, accommodating, patient and a master of his craft. By far, the best tour guide I've ever had. Our itinerary was well planned with many fun activities. Gate 1 provided excellent lodging and hotel accommodations. The food was very good with many options for everyone. Honestly, I had no complaints. I highly recommend Gate 1 Travel. Again, Kudos to Shaun. I'm already planning my next Gate 1 Tour for 2022.

Tony and Christopher, our guides, were absolutely exceptional. They were efficient, kept us safe, laughed, made everything fun and comfortable. Their knowledge of not only Kenya but America combined our cultures seamlessly. We could always turn to them for whatever we needed. I highly recommend them. Thanks again for ANOTHER fantastic memory Gate One!

The trip was great and we had fantastic time. What made it, is that Roger our tour guide was an experienced gentleman, knowledgeable, helpful, courteous and interacted positively with the group. The drivers were safe and very obliged. The choice of accommodation by Gate 1 was really good and the program was excellent. The group was exceptional. We all got together extremely well. In fact, we have formed a group on WhatsApp, exchanged photos and kept in touch. In all honesty, it is one of the best organised tours we have ever had! Thank you and congratulations Gate 1 on a job well done!

It was amazing! It exceeded all of our expectations! 27 minutes into our 1st safari in the Masai, we witnessed our 1st kill! we were looking at a beautiful cheetah and she just stood up, crouched and took off! It was thrilling & exciting to be witnessing the circle of life! Then in the same safari we saw a jaguar, multiple male & female lions with babies, elephants, giraffes, a hyena and multiple other amazing animals. Our Guide was floored that we saw so much in 3 hours, he actually stopped the truck, turned around & asked us who the magic one was! We told him that we now had high expectations for the next day! We ended up seeing all of the big 5 throughout the entire trip! Just blessed, very lucky and thankful! We look forward to booking our next vacation with Gate 1!

He was very informative of each place we visited and answered all of our questions. He was funny and I am pretty sure he had a lot of fun with this group as well.

It was a great trip. I have to say, we have been on many guided tours and travel usually twice a year with Gate 1, Trafalgar, Viking, Avalon, etc. and have never had a guide as wonderful as Don. He was amazing in so many ways, he made our trip complete. His knowledge is unparalleled and his enthusiastic way of presenting that knowledge was simply outstanding. It would only be better if Don could guide every trip we took. As far as Africa, what can I say but it was simply beautiful. The tour was fast-paced, but we knew that going in we'd be covering quite a bit of ground. It was a great itinerary, and I would do it all over again. Thanks for an amazing trip!!!!

Our Guide/Driver, Yusuf, was terrific - took us to see SO MANY animals. My wife & I were thrilled because we were “introducing” our family to Africa (including a 12 year old grandson and an 8 year old granddaughter). The experience was even better than if we had tried to design it all beforehand. Well done, all.
