Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is the second-oldest and undoubtedly the most scenically attractive and historically preserved town in southern Africa.

The name conjures up images as few other towns or cities can. History is reflected in the neo-Dutch, Georgian and modern-Victorian architecture that encompasses simple lines, fine detail and elegant proportions that bear witness to a proud and dignified heritage.

Oak-lined streets, where jagged lines of trees etched against white walls transform the streets into soft, shady tunnels, offer welcome relief from the hot sun. Source

 

Garden Route

The Garden Route features in National Geographic’s special edition entitled “The World’s must-see destinations – 100 journeys of a lifetime”.

“The town that offers a taste of sophistication and a base for exploring. Farther on, immerse yourself in tranquil, untouched nature at Wilderness and Knysna, where the sea floods the lagoon at the river’s mouth.” ”You see yourself looking out on spectacular landscapes, wandering through romantic ruins or exploring the earth’s wild places, scenting exotic spices, feeling the rush of a different kind of air. And sooner or later the moment comes when you just can’t resist the desire to go out and transform those fantasies into reality.” Source

 Knysna

Mossel Bay

Halfway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth in the heart of the famous Garden Route nestles the seaside town of Mossel Bay. A bustling holiday resort in summer and the ideal retreat in winter, Mossel Bay is situated on a spectacular sun washed peninsula embraced by the warm Indian Ocean.

Mossel Bay is a gentle seaside town, one where you will really relax and quickly slip into our “No Hurries, No Worries” frame of mind. Source

Oudtshoorn

Oudtshoorn is an unsuspecting little town offering a wide variety of creativity and cultural heritage. Originally a home to the native bushmen, it was later developed by Dutch and Lithuanian Jews. This heritage seems to live on through a vibrant art community, a surprising amount of cafes and restaurants, and plenty of historic accommodation.
