Experience the most that nature has to offer on a wine safari through the picturesque Blaauwklippen Valley
Nestled in the Blaauwklippen (Blue Stone) Valley, one of the world’s most arresting pockets of paradise, this wonderful full-day experience aboard a fully equipped game viewing Land Rover, is one of the favorite activities at the magnificent Waterford Vineyard.
What to expect
On this special tour, visitors can explore world-renowned vineyards on an exclusive, personalised route with one of our travel specialists. Kick your feet up in a game viewing Land Rover, suitable for up to ten people and fully equipped with bucket seats.
Enjoy the breath-taking panoramic views while making a selection of the finest South African wines. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a glimpse of the endemic orange-breasted Sunbird or the Cape Sugarbird, particular specialties to this pristine region of the world.
This laid-back expedition through the ancient citrus groves, rolling lawns and fragrant lavender beds allows you to learn more about the process of winemaking in one of the most splendid parts of the country. As part of a successful biodiversity program, only half of this 120ha plot of land has been used for wine farming, with the rest of the land is reserved for the natural flora and fauna of the Helderberg Mountain Range, to thrive. Waterford Valley is a great example of an organic, sustainable approach to wine farming, and allows for a perfect balance between the natural environment and sustainable agriculture.
These tours are completely tailor made to each guests’ preference and a visit to the wine farms will be decided on the day, depending on what the guests wish to experience. For the ultimate combination of luxury and outdoor adventure, these tours are topped off with a selection of cheese and wines to indulge in.
