Wonders of the Western Cape


Ancient ManWildlife ConservationWine RegionTrip of a LifetimePhotographyEasy to Moderate Walking

The city of Cape Town is the starting point for this exciting and varied Walk through the colorful Western Cape.

We encounter game, flora and rock-art in the wilderness of the Bushmans Kloof reserve, explore the historic Cape Dutch buildings at Tulbagh and the Huguenot architecture and farms of other scenic townships. We sample wine in prestigious vineyards and see spectacular African sunsets.

At the Madikwe Game Reserve, we may encounter the Big Five (lion, elephant, leopard, rhinoceros and buffalo) and stay at the beautifully appointed Madikwe Lodge. Experienced rangers guide us through the unique ecology of this untamed wilderness.
