Franschhoek - Delvera (longer route)
Tel : (021) 884 4352
Delvera is strange and rather amazing place. It’s a collection of small businesses on a small wine estate. The theme of the place is eco conscious, home made and personal, so all the businesses here are owner run and take a lot of pride in what they do. Sample the excellent olives from Chrisna (my personal favourite are the rosemary infused ones), get on a mountain bike at Dirtopia and fly around their amazing single track or just take in the art, theatre and atmosphere of this rather special part of the winelands. This place is great for kids too, with all sorts of fun activities for them to do. Check out www.delvera.co.za for events happening when you visit.
17h30 From Delvera, turn left on to the R44, direction N1.
Be careful of the very confusing four way stop on this road: lots of accidents here in recent years (if you don’t know how these work, the basic principle is that whoever arrives first has right of way). Keep going along this road until you get to the N1 and follow the signs for Cape Town. This will bring you all the way back into town.
