Stellenbosch is hiker’s paradise

The remarkable climb through the Jonkershoek Nature Reserve is as superb in summer as in winter, when it is especially lavish and pretty. We suggest doing this climb with an accomplished guide, as the wide range of trails on offer vary from 5km and 17km. Hiking enthusiast will love this World Heritage site of around 9 800 hectares of landscape to explore.

Beautiful wine valley

The Western Cape is well known for its crystal clear beaches, misty mountains and more importantly its expanding Winelands. We highly recommend that you travel around the Winelands on the casual bounce on-jump off Stellenbosch Valley Route. Then again, you can pick the Premier Wine Bus visit, which incorporates three head wine samplings, a basement visit, including a tasting from a barrel where conceivable, and a customary South African braai for lunch.

It has become quite clear that among its many offerings, Stellenbosch is an innovative hub for those seeking an outdoor holiday. Go on an adventure in Stellenbosch offering you brisk outside walks and delicious wine tasting escapades.
