Spectacular mountain ranges surround Stellenbosch, the university town in the winelands of the Western Cape. The elegant Cape Dutch, Georgian and Victorian houses that grace the oak tree-lined streets reflect the history of one of South Africa’s oldest towns. Take a stroll and you’ll find interesting museums, open-air coffee shops, bars and bistros and a thriving arts scene; go further afield and you can hike through vineyards, orchards and mountain ranges. The students are an integral part of the town bringing a vibrancy to Stellenbosch’s otherwise tranquil and laid-back atmosphere.
