Iziko Slave Lodge
The second oldest existing colonial building in South Africa is the Slave Lodge. This Slave Lodge housed slaves who worked for the Dutch East India Company (VOC) and they were never sold up until some of them were old and couldn't do the work. Here you will get a brief history of slavery in South Africa when it began, the lives of slaves, as well as when and why it was abolished.

The Cape Malay Quarters, known as Bo-Kaap. After our visit to Slave Lodge, we head straight to the colorful houses of the Cape. Bo-Kaap is where numerous rental houses were built and leased to slaves. Soon after the slaves were allowed to buy the houses they painted them with different bright colors as an expression of their freedom. Here there are a variety of craft markets, the first established Muslim mosque in South Africa, and also different restaurants with the most delicious dishes of the Malaysians and discover their cooking style.

Constantia Glen Winery
After city tour, we will set off on our Constantia Winelands private tour which we have dubbed: The Simon van der Stel wine tour. We will travel from Cape Town along the M3 passing Rhodes Memorial and the University of Cape Town (UCT) and proceed on the M41 to our first wine stop for the day which is Constantia Glen wine estate. Perched high up on the hill with amazing views of mountains and vineyards, Constantia Glen was originally part of the Simon van der Stel farm. After undergoing farming changes including forest hills farming and cattle stud farming, it returned to its original farming of wine. The wine production is 70% Red and 30% White cultivars.

Groot Constantia
We then proceed to the historical Groot (meaning Big) Constantia wine estate. Groot Constantia is the oldest wine-producing farm in South Africa since 1685 and even after the farm had changed ownership, it still maintains the production of high-quality, award-winning wine. The farm produces 70% Red and 30% White cultivars. We can recommend a beautiful lunch either at Simon’s Restaurant or at Jonkershuis Restaurant, both set on this exquisite wine estate.

60 minutes • Admission Ticket Free

Klein Constantia
Our next stop is at Klein (meaning Little) Constantia wine estate. Set on the foothills of the Constantiaberg, with spectacular views across False Bay, Klein Constantia was also part of the Constantia farm by Simon van der Stel in 1685. Through its decomposed granite soil slopes and cool ocean breeze, Klein Constantia produces some of South Africa’s top wine. The farm produces 30% Red and 70% White cultivars.

We end off our Simon van der Stel wine tour with Buitenverwachting (meaning Beyond expectation) wine estate. This too had formed part of the original Constantia farm which was found by Simon van der Stel. Even though it changed ownership, they retraced the roots of the estate and restored the historical buildings on the farm. The farm produces 8 % Red, 90% White and 2 % Rose cultivars. From there we make our way back to Cape Town where guests will be dropped off back at their accommodation.
