Ocean and Vine Adventures & Tours is a Cape Town based Tour Operator, established in 1998 by Wayne and Catherine Donaldson. We believe that quality of service and the personal touch make a big difference to our guests. Every guest has a different expectation of their time on tour. It is for this reason that we prefer to offer private tours. We are able to structure packages according to our client's requests, time constraints and budget. We welcome questions and are happy to organise your entire stay in South Africa , including accommodation all around the country, tours, internal flights and safari packages to our Private and National Parks.We specialise in privately guided safaris in Southern Africa, as well as private up-market tours around the Western Cape & Cape Town.

It's difficult to put into words how fantastic the time our group spent with Wayne was..but I'll give it a go. The first thing I have to say is that the knowledge of the land (both on our Safari and Cape Town visit) is second to none. We were a group of 8 who rented Walkers River Camp for 6... More

We used Wayne for the Cape Town leg of our honeymoon after his details were passed to us from a number of friends who had used his services. We were not disappointed. Wayne was easy to communicate with and we were quickly able to tailor our visit to suit our timescale, desires and budget before booking. Wayne organised all our... More

Really enjoyed our trip with Wayne. Well organized on short notice (but suggest booking ahead in high season!) We had done a very good traditional wine tour previous week so were looking for something a little different. Had a great time through some of the smaller places. Very good choices for lunches and overnight. Highlight was meeting a master winemaker... More

We had a wonderful trip with Wayne who guided us for three days in Kruger National Park. His encyclopedic knowledge of birds in particular, and wildlife in general, was second to none. He drove us through Swaziland and on to Tembe Elephant Park. Altogether we were with him for 10 days or so. He was very easy company and we... More

As first time visitors to Cape Town/South Africa, we particularly appreciated Wayne and Catherine's help pre-trip with getting all the details straight, patiently answering our many questions, and working with us to provide the kind of experience that suited our interests.

Wayne should be your first choice if you're thinking of going on a safari in South Africa: he grew up near the Kruger and his dad is a ranger there, so he's very knowledgeable about the area and the wildlife. He also organises wine tours, and just about anything else you're interested in doing or seeing. The food he organised... More
