What to do in the area ?

Wellington is situated in the heart of the wine-cultivating region of South Africa. Cape Town, Franshoek, Stellenbosch, Tulbach, and the two oceans are a comfortable distance of less than an hour's drive away. It is a convenient country home very close to city life. Wellington's history began as a wagon- building town providing heavy duty ox-wagons for the early settlers to cross the mountains into the Karoo. In mid 1800 the Bainskloof passCape Town Harbour was built and is well worth a drive, as it was constructed more or less by hand and features stunning views, hiking trails and a unique range of Fynbos and Proteas (our national flower). Wellington offers a historic watch tower from wartime, museums, Victorian and Cape Dutch architecture and many well-known wine estates are in the area - open to the public to taste their wines and enjoy cheeses and homemade produce. International rugby events, cycling and marathons are the occasions the country and sometimes the world takes notice of Wellington. Visit the leather factory, or one of the estates, the museum, go for clay-pigeon shooting, taste brandy at one of the private brandy cellars, hike up the Bainskloof trail, arrange horse-riding, play golf on South Africas oldest 9 hole course, or play tennis or squash in town. Restaurants, coffee shops, antique dealers and an art gallery on a nearby farm will fill your day. We assist in arranging individual group tours with registered professional tourguides for you on request.
