Stellenbosch is exquisite with old oak trees that date back to their original plantings in the 1600s, wide streets, graceful Cape Dutch architecture, cobbled rain drains and spectacular 360˚ views.

With 17 000 students, over 80 restaurants and pubs, the town offers backpackers heaps of fun and adventure, a young vibrant atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. The nightlife throbs and everything is within walking distance. This is the budget travellers dream, as you can get out and about by bicycle, in a hired car or on an organised tour.

Backpackers can glide through the winelands with Segway, be guided through the choices of wine with Easy Rider Wine Tours and Vine Hopper or take in the scenic hiking in the mountains around Stellenbosch, downhill mountain bike trails, trout fishing and horse riding on offer. Step in to nature at Jonkershoek Nature Reserve, or get up close and personal with birds of prey at Spier Wine Farm.

The cultural and historical attractions – which include the Toy and Miniature Museum, the VOC Kruithuis (Powder House) delightful architecture, art galleries, amphitheatres, cinemas and plenty of live music - are also plentiful.

When the wine has been drunk and the day is done, Banghoek Place, Stumble Inn backpackers and Ikhaya Stellenbosch Backpackers will offer a comfy bed to rest your weary head.
