Magical Mystery Experiences happen all the time!
If you decide to visit this beautiful diverse country, South Africa, and you want to come to the Western Cape, I can help you to have a great time! Experiences vary from Food & Wine to Cultural, Natural, Hiking, Art, Shopping etc. I work from the best whale whatching town in the world - HERMANUS!

I do Private tours and therefore you, the tourist with my help, can decide where you want to go and what you want to do and how. My itineraries are flexible and incorporate the best of what I specialise in, in the Western Cape. Prices may vary accordingly. The following tours are my speciality and will give an indication of how beautiful and versatile this amazing part of SA is.


1. OVERBERG, home to the famous Cape Whale Coast and Hermanus

Experience the breathtaking country and coastal sceneries of this area. From azure blue seas to rolling wheat and canola fields, fynbos covered mountains, orchards, vineyards, penguins, whales from July to November, various birds, wild life, farm stalls, quaint towns, brandy, wine, beer, cheese, food, antique shops, shopping, art, ship wrecks, museums, fisherman’s cottage s and lots of culture and history. Included are: The Most Southern Tip of Africa, Cape Agalhus, Stanford, Bredasdorp, Napier, Arniston with its huge cave in the ocean, Elim, Greyton, Genadendal, Elgin, Grabouw, Kleinmond and Bettys Bay.

2. CAPE TOWN and The Peninsula

Enjoy a wonderful day in the mother city – Cape Town and the Peninsula. The oldest city in South Africa! Enjoy the most beautiful scenic coastal roads on the way to Cape Point all along the Peninsula. See Camps Bay and Hout Bay along the way. Take the Cable Car to go to the top of the famous Table Mountain, visit the V&A Waterfront, go to Robben Island where our beloved Mandela spent so many years in jail, shop in the craft markets and enjoy the different architectural buildings, the oldest wine farm in SA, quaint harbour villages, fish & chips, baboons, penguins, an ostrich farm and the Cape Malay experience in the Bo-Kaap. Too many options! This is an appetizer, better to stay at least 3 days in this buzzing city to enjoy it all


Taste some of the best wines in SA, over 140 wine farms and the oldest and biggest wine route in SA! This beautiful second oldest town in SA hosts a University, Dorpstreet with the longest row of old buildings that survived of any major town in Southern Africa, The height of Cape Dutch Architecture, is surrounded by beautiful mountains, is known as the village of oaks, has a birds of prey and cheetah rehabilitation centre just outside town and you can enjoy excellent shopping as well.


From Hermanus or surrounds to Franschhoek includes one of the most spectacular drives in the Overstrand! Enjoy the best farm scenery with mountains planted with wheat and canola, roaming with sheep and our national bird, the Blue Crane, fruit orchards, huge valleys and one of the most breathtaking passes in the country, the Franschhoek Pass. Once over this, Franschhoek Valley greets you from above where once, more than 300 years ago, elephants still roam when the French Huguenots were given farms to plant and produce wines, which still to today include some of the best! It is the Food and Wine capital of SA! Quaint little shops invite for good shopping, art, wineries and restaurants, cultural and historical. A must!


This Tour is designed for tourists that need a transfer to anywhere on the Garden route up to Knysna a s far as Plettenburg Bay. It includes again a big part of the Overberg and towns like Barrydale, Montagu(on route the famous R62) Swellendam(the first town established in the country side). It can incorporate Cape A’Gulhas, the most Southern Point of Africa as well. The Garden Route is by far one of the most beautiful places in SA! The versatility is amazing, from fynbos, semi desert of the Klein Karoo, majestic mountains, ocean views, to rivers and quaint villages along the way. The tour can extend to 2 days or more.

..Various Half Day Tours available, great variety of destinations around the Overberg!
..Wine Tours in our own Hemel en Aarde Valley (more than 18 wineries)

6. SAFARI - a must for the shorttime traveller who have no time for the bigger reserves

Get an introduction to some of the most exciting animals of this country while viewing them from an open vehicle on safari and meet the fastest animal, the cheetah, from nearby at this Cheetah Conservation. Enjoy breakfast, picnic style a la magical, drinks on arrival and then lunch at the reserve and have a lovely time in the pool before heading back . This trip also gives you a glimpse of the Little Karoo, (Klein Karoo in Afrikaans) the smaller and more southerly of the Karoo sub-regions. A semi-desert, fertile valley bounded by the Swartberg in the north, Langeberg and Outeniqua mountians in the south. Interesting plants, smaller animals and lots of birds are also to be seen in this vastness. A full day with lots of fun and magnificant scenery.



Town International as well as any other places.

Pictures can tell a story but the real thing is by far the best, so drop me an email to enable me to lure you to South Africa and have the time of your life.

..Bookings done for all activities, restaurants and accommodation if required.

Thank You Notes from my Happy Tourists:

Dear Gerda

We just returned to Singapore Tuesday.  We wish to thank you for a very good tour we had with you.  You are experienced and sensible  and as a result we saw most of what we wanted to see.  Thank you for your generosity making a detour so that we could  go back to Table Mountain and take the cable car ride.  That was very important to do.  Also thank you for organising the train ride from Capetown to Fish Hoek.  The normal train would have been quite scary for us tourist. At some of the train stops, we saw groups of people waiting to get onboard that looked quite scary to us.

       Thank you and Best regards to you and your Family
    Maurice & Chwee,  Singapore
