Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch- About the Neighbourhood

Stellenbosch, South Africa’s second-oldest town, is rich in history, culture and natural beauty.

Add adventure, wine and food experiences to the mix and you have a winner.

Adventure seekers can trek off-road on a non-motorised scooter trip through the thrilling paths and slopes of Jonkershoek Nature Reserve. Or hike through this 9,800-hectare UNESCO World Heritage site, navigating different trails and footpaths.

Getting around is easy, whether you jump on a bus, eBike or a tuk-tuk around Stellenbosch to various wine estates. Visitors can also enjoy segway rides in some of the most beautiful vineyards.

Take a leisurely tour of the town on a bicycle – passing historic sites, Stellenbosch University and cycling through the Jonkershoek Valley. Or burst through the treetops on a thrilling zipline adventure.

If markets are more your thing, spend a day at Route 44 Market, surrounded by picturesque vineyards and trees. The market offers live entertainment, 80 craft stalls and a selection of over 50 food traders.

Picnics and wine tastings are plentiful in Stellenbosch.

Opt for a pre-packed picnic on one of the farms in Stellenbosch or indulge in a wine bus tour, which includes three wine tastings, a cellar tour featuring a tasting from a barrel (where possible) and a traditional South African braai for lunch.

History buffs will appreciate a visit to Stellenbosch’s Village Museum, home to a range of exhibitions, including the Schreuderhuis – the oldest restored townhouse in South Africa.

The Stellenbosch Botanical Garden is also pretty impressive. See a wide range of exotic and indigenous plants, shaded trails, small streams and ponds. Or grab a basket and go strawberry picking on a local farm.

Art fanatics can book a guided art tour highlighting 11 significant points of interest, and bird enthusiasts can revel in Eagle Encounters, a bird-of-prey rehabilitation, conservation, and eco-tourism project.

Shopping is equally popular, with retailers ranging from cute boutiques to antique stores and shopping malls.

End the day with a party at one of the nightclubs dotted around town.
