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.

PRINS & PRINS DIAMONDS MUSEUM OF GEMS AND JEWELLERY
This unique museum project takes visitors on a journey from when diamonds first began to form three billion years ago and their 150 km journey to the surface, following the unique path of South African diamonds from their origin in extinct volcanoes to the deposits along our coastline. Learn about unique and rare gemstones, and see how jewellery has changed through thousands of years. The story about South Africa’s mineral wealth is told, not only for diamonds, but also for our Platinum and Gold deposits.
29km from Oudtshoorn, at the head of the picturesque Cango Valley, lies the spectacular underground wonder of the Klein Karoo - the Cango Caves. Situated in a limestone ridge parallel to the well-known Swartberg Mountains, you will find the finest dripstone caverns, with their vast halls and towering formations.
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.
