Itinerary

Peregrine Farm Stall

Breakfast

Part of the journey since 1964
Established in the sixties, Peregrine has been serving generations of travellers seeking honest homemade fare and warm country hospitality. Situated in the beautiful and fertile Elgin Valley, Peregrine offers an abundance of locally sourced artisanal goods and wholesome, responsibly farmed, fresh produce.

Franschhoek and Hugenot Monument

Franschhoek (Dutch for: French corner) is one of the oldest villages in South Africa, established in 1688 by 176 French Huguenots families. Originally the place was called Olifantshoek (Dutch for: Elephants Corner) because of the numerous elephants living in the valley. 

The Huguenot Monument in Franschhoek, Western Cape, South Africa, is dedicated to the cultural influences that Huguenots have brought to the Cape Colony (and ultimately the whole of South Africa) after their immigration during the 17th and 18th centuries. The French and Belgian Protestants were fleeing religious persecution, especially in Catholic France.

Solms Delta Wine Estate - Franschhoek

Winetasting

"At Solms-Delta we celebrate what it means to be South African. The food, the people, the music and, of course, the wine, telling the stories of where we come from and sharing ownership and profits equally with our workers, we bring a sense of pride, belonging and ownership to those who have, for generations, called our historic farm home."

Zorgvliet Wine Estate - Stellenbosch

Winetasting

"At dusk the valley becomes tranquil and filled with magic, the mountains are painted in the colors of our rainbow nation as the last rays of sunshine greet the valley good night. Share our haven and you will never be the same again as you will become a beholder of the spirit of the Banghoek Valley."

Spier Wine Estate - Somerset West
