Stellenbosch tours & holiday packages
Where world-class wine, history and students meet
As the oldest wine valley in South Africa, Stellenbosch is a hub for wine culture, beautiful Victorian buildings and outdoor activities in the Western Cape
With more than 200 different wine and grape producers, the Stellenbosch Wine Valley is known globally for its excellent vintages. Its various wineries offer not only tastings, cellar tours, and well-priced wine sales, but also excellent restaurants, picnic facilities and a sampling of cheeses or chocolate to accompany the array of reds, whites and sparkling wines. At the heart of the valley, the town of Stellenbosch is appealing, with streets that are lined with Victorian buildings and large old oak trees. One of the country's best universities is located here and anyone can take a stroll around the campus.

Stellenbosch is one of my favourite South African towns. A sunny day is easily filled with hiking or picnicking and there are so many different wine farms and tastings to choose from. I love ambling aimlessly around the town's vibrant streets or relaxing at a street café.

Stellenbosch also offers adventure and cultural activities in and around the town, such as mountain biking and hiking in Jonkershoek Nature Reserve or cycling on Nooitgedacht Wine Estate. Thanks to the university, the town itself radiates energy and youthfulness. The streets are easy to navigate on foot, although there are also many organised walking tours and bicycles are available for rent at the tourism bureau.
Art galleries include the Stellenbosch Modern and Contemporary Art Gallery and the Stellenbosch Art Gallery. The Endler Hall showcases not only the university’s award-winning choir and symphony orchestra but also numerous visiting classical musicians. The Toy Museum and Village Museum invite a look into the town’s past.
Just beyond Stellenbosch’s centre are fresh produce markets and the Polkadraai Strawberry Farm, where visitors can pick their own berries to take home.
