We travel into the stunning Overberg region and to the coastal village of De Kelders. It is situated overlooking Walker’s Bay, an area renowned for superb seasonal whale-watching. (May - October). Hopping onto our Fat Bikes (supplement cost), we make our way along the 4x4 track, getting used to the 4.7-inch tyres before we head onto the main Die Plat beach and ride along Walker Bay. Taking things at our own pace we rest often and use this opportunity to simply soak in the stunning coastal landscape.
If you like something a little more blood-pounding, then as an alternative to Fat Biking, perhaps enjoy a spot of Shark-Cage Diving (supplement cost).
From the top of the cliffs, we look down at the bay, searching for the great mammals which come in quite close to shore, during the season.
Our afternoon is spent exploring the Hemel-en-Aarde wine route, a name which translates as Heaven and Earth. This zone has a wealth of boutique wine estates and vineyards which produce cool-climate wines and it particularly renowned for its Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.
