Cape Town Tourism - Table Mountain

Stellenbosch Wine Routes

One of the top six tourist destinations in the Western Cape, the Stellenbosch American Express® Wine Routes has been divided into five sub-routes, according to wine styles, climate and location.

The sub-routes include the Greater Simonsberg, Stellenbosch Berg, Helderberg, Stellenbosch Valley and Bottelary Hills.

There are 148 wine farms along the route, many of them historical farms with beautiful Cape Dutch manors houses, gardens, hotels and fine-dining restaurants.

The Stellenbosch Wine Route is the oldest one in South Africa, and the world-class wines produced here have contributed to creating an international profile for this Boland university town.

Museums along the route offer a glimpse into the rich history of the area.

With views of the mountains and surrounded by vineyards, many of the wine farms host functions, conferences and opulent weddings.

 

Museum of Gems & Jewellery

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.

Cango Caves

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.

Buyel'Embo Village

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.

Cape Town Carnival

The Cape Town Carnival is a glamorous celebration of African identity, diverse communities and cultures, and the transformative power of creativity.
