The Winelands

South Africa

DESTINATIONS > Africa > South Africa > The Winelands

When visiting the Western Cape, exploring the Winelands is an absolute must. South Africa’s wine industry is one of the largest in the world dating back to the 17th century and the wineries are incredibly picturesque welcoming visitors for tasting with open arms.

Franschhoek well known for its breath-taking scenery and warm hospitality is made up of some of the oldest and finest wine estates in the country holding strong French influences. This quaint town is filled with a charming mix of galleries, gourmet restaurants and beautiful boutique shops.

Stellenbosch is famous for it’s wine farms that lie within beautiful surroundings and the town is characterised by Dutch architecture giving it a strong sense of South Africa’s Dutch colonial history. Visitors to the area can enjoy wine tastings of South Africa’s finest wines, as well as enjoying delicious local food at its restaurants and enchanting street cafes.

Missy & Harry

Absolutely amazing holiday. Garonga is heaven! We did everything possible and our guide was brilliant and hilarious. I can definitely recommend True Travel for their excellent advice and professionalism – they clearly are very knowledgeable about where they send their clients and made sure we had a worry-free holiday that perfectly suited us. We were particular grateful for the collection off our flight and help onto our transfer in Johannesburg, which included a very nifty queue jump due to their reputation!
