Durbanville Hills has launched a ‘Table Mountain Wine Safari’ experience, which involves taking guests out in a customised safari vehicle to see exclusive areas of Table Mountain, not usually open to public vehicles.
Radley Connor, Marketing Manager for Durbanville Hills describes the scenic trail, which starts at the cableway and leads onto a beautiful forest of ancient oak and cork trees that eventually expose steep mountain cliff of sandstone. “At the highest point of the Safari, Table Bay, False Bay, the Durbanville wine ward and the dramatic Hottentots Holland mountain range are all clearly visible.”
Henri Bruce, host of the Table Mountain Safari tours on behalf of Durbanville Hills, explains that from this spot on Table Mountain, guests will look out on the unique location of Durbanville Hills’ cellar from afar,”
In addition to the Table Mountain views and Durbanville Hills wine tasting, guests will be contributing to the preservation of Table Mountain National Park. “A great part of this exciting initiative is that 10% of all proceeds are donated to SANParks for the conservation and general upkeep of South Africa’s national parks.”
The Table Mountain Wine Safari runs from Monday to Thursday and Saturday at 11h00, and Friday at 10h00 and 15h00. The tour lasts approximately three hours and starts at Table Mountain Cableway (with collection points at selected guesthouses and hotels in and around Cape Town). It costs R500pp, including tasting, snacks and a bottle of Durbanville Hills wine to take home. For more information, contact Henri Bruce on +27 (0)76 788 4992.
