Constantia Wine Valley
Constantia, birthplace of the Cape wine industry, is one of the most exclusive suburbs in South Africa – close to the city centre yet with a distinctly rural feel.
Located in the foothills of the Constantiaberg on the Cape Peninsula, this lush, green suburb is home to award-winning wine estates and fine dining establishments.
Grapes were first cultivated by Simon van der Stel at Groot Constantia in 1685. Today Groot Constantia wine estate is South Africa's oldest and most historic, with a unique terrior that ensures the production of superb quality wine.
Many of the wine estates in the Constantia valley feature beautiful Cape Dutch manor houses which are open to the public for viewing.

This cultural village aims to remind us of our origin and serves as the reservoir for African knowledge pertaining to nature and traditions, giving us an opportunity to celebrate who we are through music (wonderful sounds from live bands) or from its’ distinct fineness of cuisine, topped up with African (local) arts and crafts.
The Cape Town Carnival brings South Africans together to celebrate our culture and heritage; people united in the joy of movement, rhythm, colour and creativity. The fact that we can showcase this to the rest of the world and create jobs and promote social cohesion at the same time, makes it even more wonderful.
Hot summer sun, extra long days and warm nights, sun-kissed skin and time to spend with loved ones; summer in Cape Town is the ideal time to get outdoors and enjoy getting closer to the spectacular nature that is within minutes from the bustling city.
!Khwa ttu, the San Education and Culture Centre, 70 km north-west of Cape Town offers you the unique experience of being introduced to the world of the descendants of the first indigenous people of southern Africa.
Rising 669m above sea level, Lion’s Head, a popular hiking spot, is unmistakably part of Cape Town’s skyline. Driving on the N2 into the city centre, you can clearly see why it’s called Lion’s Head – look to your right; Signal Hill forms the rump, the space in between the body of what could be a crouching feline.
