Stellenbosch Launches Off-Peak Travel Packages perfect for active travellers and foodie safaris
20 July 2017 [group_audience]
From now until end of September, those looking to indulge in an active holiday or foodie safari in South Africa can stay-and-play in Stellenbosch for much less. As part of the low season campaign Reflect, Relax Stellenbosch, South Africa’s Food, Wine and Lifestyle Capital currently offers three tiers of value-added packages, ranging from budget-friendly, to top end experiences that encapsulate the bustling pulse, unique cultural mix and multifaceted offerings of this vibrant town and region.
Visitors are being invited to immerse themselves in ultimate “bucket list” encounters and indulge in the best of Stellenbosch’s warm hospitality. With the currently favorable foreign exchange rates, The Reflect, Relax Stellenbosch packages are even more attractive for international travellers.
CEO of Stellenbosch Wine Routes, Annareth Bolton, comments: “With daytime temperatures ranging from 14ºC to 20ºC, Stellenbosch’s winter is called the “Secret Season” by locals. Its balmy, sun-drenched and clear days are ideal not only for winetasting, but also for outdoor activities like easy walks, hiking or mountain biking in the nearby Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, 4x4ing through mountains and valleys, horse riding amongst wild game or playing golf. The occasional rainy days are conducive to exploring the historic town centre, browsing its numerous galleries and shops, and indulging in leisurely lunches at the town’s famous eateries in front of warm log fires.”
From as little as R1 300 per person, one can Reflect, Relax in Stellenbosch, which includes two nights’ accommodation, dinner, lunch and two activities selected from a “bucket list” of unique Stellenbosch experiences.
Premium packages are available from R3 200 per person, which include a royal two-night stay at a five-star hotel, dinner at an award-winning restaurant, lunch and two timeout indulgences like a spa treatment or a virtual wine tasting.
Think waking up on a historic wine farm like Lanzerac, lunch at a busy sidewalk café, followed by an art experience or a little more adventurous cycle through the vineyards, all perfectly complemented by dinner at an award-winning local restaurant.
Annemarie Ferns, CEO of Stellenbosch 360, adds; “Stellenbosch is a town for all seasons, all ages and all budgets. Wine lovers will relish a pampered luxury break but Stellenbosch is just as fabulous for families looking for outdoor excursions and affordable accommodation.”
As these packages are fuelled with value for money leisure activities in and around Stellenbosch, guests can opt to extend their stay or add more activities to their ultimate “bucket list” for their own account, all at a reduced rate.
Due to its central location, Stellenbosch is also the perfect base from where to explore Cape Town or the Western Cape. Nature is at her most beautiful this time of the year with the Cape Floral Kingdom in full bloom. From July onwards, visitors can witness the arrival of the migratory southern right whales along the coastline, one of the most significant wildlife spectacles in South Africa. The nearby Whale Coast, only thirty minutes drive from Stellenbosch, makes for a great day trip and offers some of the best land-based whale watching in the world.
