To Do

Tucked amongst the Tygerberg hills, just 25 minutes from Cape Town, lies a hidden gem … the small rural town of Durbanville, surrounded largely by wheat and wine farms. Originally known as Pampoenkraal (from the Afrikaans word pampoen , meaning pumpkin, and kraal , meaning corral – an enclosure for livestock), Durbanville has grown from its humble beginnings as a watering station (during the time of Jan van Riebeeck – 1600’s) into one of Cape Town’s recognised wine routes.

Located equidistant between the City of Cape Town and the outer lying areas of Wellington, Paarl, Stellenbosch and Somerset West; Durbanville offers award-winning wine tasting experiences; a multitude of outdoor activities; gourmet restaurants aplenty, and a choice of exquisite views.

For those travellers wishing to experience the most that Cape Town and its surrounds has to offer, Durbanville offers the perfect holiday and business travel destination, with easy access to all main routes.
