Cape Winelands Tours, Vacations, Travel Packages & Experiences


  • Barrels of wine waiting to be sampled is always a popular activity while on South African tours.

Located in the Western Cape province of South Africa, the Cape Wineland region is found in the Boland, a mountainous area with fertile valleys that host some of the country’s finest vineyards. The Cape Winelands are cooler than their position of 34 degrees south of the equator suggests. As a result, the area is suited for growing many different types of wine including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Shiraz and Pinot Noir to be enjoyed on soluth Africa tours.

Although there are over 70 wine growing regions around Cape Town, the Cape Wineland Region usually refers to the three most popular, Franschhoek, Stellenbosch and Paarl. Many have described Franschhoek as the “food and wine capital” of South Africa.

Stellenbosch is the second oldest town in South Africa and is the “historic heart” of the wine region while Paarl is known for its architectural heritage. While these three may be some of the most popular tourist areas, each town in the region is seeped in history and culture and offers incredible culinary and wine-tasting opportunities.on a South African vacation

The scenery of the Cape Winelands is very impressive and as such, hiking, walking and cycling activities are particularly popular. There are also world class golf courses and restaurants throughout. For those seeking a culturally and culinary rich destination, the Cape Winelands region is the ideal place on South Africa tours.
