Wildlife safari and Wine Tour
[Full Day Tour] If you’re looking for a uniquely South African experience then this is it.

You’ll also taste the world class wine made on the estates after each animal encounter. 8am pickup to ~5pm drop off.

- Taste a superb variety of MCCs (sparkling wine) at the Villiera Estate
- Get face to beak with exotic birds and other wildlife at Eagle Encounters, a rehabilitation and conservation centre situated on the picturesque estate
- Taste wine overlooking the estate pond as your kids get their own juice tasting
- Rub scales with crocodiles at a local crocodile farm
Start your day with a wildlife safari at Villiera, a wine estate known for their commitment to preserving the environment and the animals in it. The abundance of wildlife on the estate is testament to their constant efforts and means you will be exposed to beautiful animals like giraffe, zebra, springbok, eland and kudu to name but a few. Your safari is followed by a tasting of the superb Methode Cap Classique (sparkling wine or MCC) that Villiera is renowned for.
After your MCC tasting you will be taken to the Eagle Encounters rehabilitation and conservation centre on the Spier wine estate where you’ll get up close and personal with rare and endangered birds of prey. If you’re lucky you’ll get to hold an eagle or an owl in the touching gallery, or you can take part in a breath-taking falconry display, with kites, buzzards, owls and other birds swooping around you. There’s much more to the centre than just birds though – you can also hang out with Sonic the porcupine and Drogon the bearded dragon and marvel at the family of Cape dwarf chameleons. Spier is also celebrated for the world-class wine produced on the estate. Spend some time sniffing and swirling your way through the Spier range and perhaps walk away with a bottle or two.
If you can tear yourself away from your new feathered (and spiked and horned and scaled) friends, it’s time to head to Le Bonheur Crocodile Farm.
At Le Bonheur you’ll witness these prehistoric reptilian beasts in all their scaly glory. You’ll also be tasked with holding one of mama crocs little guys…a truly unique African experience.
