We have partnered with Perivoli Lagoon House for an incredible journey to South Africa’s Cape region to experience Whale Season and award-winning wines. Two indescribable private villas, each set within a unique landscape, inclusive of private chefs, world-class experiences, and heart-warming hosts … our new Wine & Whales journey is the perfect 6-night trip to the Cape.

All for only R 6 450 per person per night … read on for details.

Why Wine and Whales? During this time of year (June – December) Southern Right Whales arrive in the waters around Cape Town, South Africa to breed. Hermanus is one of the best places to spot the pods from the shoreline, the many walking trails, restaurants and vantage points. Enjoy an excursion by boat out into the bay for a closer view, and memories to last a lifetime.

Understandably, this picturesque town can become crowded during peak Whale Season. So, we love that Perivoli Lagoon House is located half an hour away in the serene beauty of the Klein River lagoon. With easy access to the action, but set apart from the hubbub and crowds, Perivoli is ideal for private family vacations in secluded luxury.

Having spent time with the wise cetaceans and explored Perivoli’s 140-hectare reserve of colourful fynbos with your private safari vehicle, exchange your ocean view for that of rolling vineyards in ‘Pearl of the Cape’, the Paarl Winelands.

Home to Brookdale Manor House, continue your journey of relaxation with days spent sampling Brookdale’s award-winning wine portfolio, exceptional farm-to-fork cuisine with tailored menus, and the region’s unending natural beauty. Allow the pastoral rhythms of farm life to nourish your mind and soul, and spend quality time together in the enveloping calm of the valley with us.

Immersive, unforgettable nature experiences await right on your doorstep … from watching a southern right whale breach the ocean surface, kayaking through the lagoon, guided fynbos walks, water sports, or time on the beach – the diverse ecosystem surrounding Perivoli Lagoon House provides an abundance of unforgettable activities. Inside, bright and spacious living spaces provide the perfect place to relax and unwind which spill outdoors. We love how their ethos and approach to stays perfectly synchronises with our philosophy to ‘stay curious’.
