Things to do in Stellenbosch

Seize the moment by doing something special. Food seems to top the list, with old favourites returning and new markets opening. In between you can walk, hike, (treasure)hunt and marvel at nature. 

Bathe in nature

The rare Phaius wallichii at the SU Botanical Garden is in bloom; the gardens at Babylonstoren offer guided walks; and the Limietberg reserve (particularly beautiful at the moment) becons with a number of hikes through steep kloofs and deep valleys. 

Run with the goats

The Goat Run 2020 kicks off on 3 October 2020 at Fairview (and will take place every Saturday throughout October). You choose from 5km, 8km or 10km routes. Entry fees will go to charities and some prizes are on offer. Read more
