WE MADE IT!

After 30 hours of travel, we arrived in Cape Town!

Days 1-2: The Wild Collective put together an amazing 10 day itinerary! The first stop on the itinerary was Constantia. Constantia Valley is a super nice, low-key suburb of Cape Town. Located on the South side of Cape Town, it's conveniently located close to Cape Point, Boulder Beach and most importantly, it's wine country! Nova Constantia Boutique Residence was kind enough to host us. The General Manager greeted us and had already taken the liberty of making a dinner reservations at Bistro Sixteen82 on a vineyard. After a long travel, this guidance and forethought was spot on. The entire staff at Nova Constantia are very friendly and beyond accommodating.

Bistro Sixteen82 is a must. Delicious tapas overlooking the rolling hills full of grape vines is beautiful. It's located on the Steenberg Farm.

We made our way down to Boulder Beach to see the South African Penguins and kept going down the coast to Cape Point. Cape Point has breathtaking panoramic views. We even saw an Ostrich on our hike!

Our road trip continued to Cape Point Vineyards (yes we love our wine tastings!)

Lastly, We had to try the Chefs tasting menu at Buitenverwachting. YUM! The menu, consisting of retro cuisine, is divided into four categories, Light & Easy, Rustic Affairs, Indulge and Desserts, catering for relaxed and deli style lunches / dinners, but also offering a limited selection of fine dining dishes.

Suggestions: RENT A CAR! We wouldn't have been able to do a majority of these activities if we didn't have a car. WIFI is limited (available but slow), I suggest buying a mobile hotspot to use for navigating. AT&T and Verizon are not covered under the travel pass in South Africa.
