Cape Town Winelands
Cape Town Winelands

The wine routes are very well developed and, quite honestly, you could spend weeks or even months roaming around happily and never get to the end of it. Well, it sounds great but very few people have that kind of time so you should really choose one and then spend a day or two happily exploring. If you really are a wine fundi, you could visit a number of them. They are listed below in a circular route, which is far too long for anyone to do, but it gives you an idea of the kind of routing you can do. You'd probably be wise to leave out at least half of them. But which half' Ah, that's the tough one. Best you get a good wine book, such as John Platter's South African Wine Guide.

South Africa Flower Route
South Africa Flower Route

This route is only really worthwhile in spring usually from late August to Early September. You need to book ahead if you're hoping to find a place to stay in flower season. What follows is a great itinerary and covers far more than most people will need it's worth doing if you are a botanist or just absolutely dead keen on flowers. But remember almost anywhere you go in the flower area in season is bound to be amazing. Many of these roads are dirt. You can still have a good flower experience without driving on dirt roads. Just visit Darling, Langebaan, Clanwilliam, Niewoudtville or Vanrynsdorp, and you don't have to go far from the N7.
