The summer issue of Stellenbosch Visio is out now

To spread the festive cheer, this issue of Stellenbosch Visio is jam-packed with delightful articles to entertain you for hours. And what better way to spread festive joy to loved ones and corporate clients than our special gift box? Order yours now and get your festive shopping done early.

The sun, as much as we love it, can be a killer, or at the very least wreak havoc on our skin. Never leave the house without applying sunscreen and always wear a hat when out on hot days. Before you hurry off to the beach, take a moment to read Elsa Kruger’s sage advice on sunscreen.

Then, of course, there is always the classic braais with friends, finding the time to read a great book, invigorating swims in the sea and celebrating Christmas with family.

For art lovers, this will turn into an unforgettable summer. Melvyn Minnaar guides you through the Cape arts ecosystem, incorporating the Stellenbosch Triennale, Investec art fair, and the William Kentridge exhibition at the Zeitz MOCAA and the Norval Foundation. Nowhere else in the world can you hit such an arts jackpot.

Stellenbosch has the ability to surprise you at every turn. Who would ever think that the historic farm Hazendal, granted to the free citizen Christoffel Hazendal in 1707, could combine today’s farming tradition with exotic Russian experiences? Make it a destination this holiday, and imagine you’re somewhere far away in the world.

We wish all our readers a wonderful, restful end of the year (with plenty of opportunities to read!). Enjoy the best of Stellenbosch and the surrounding area and spend time with family and friends. A blessed holiday season to everyone!
