What is South Africa Famous for?

Many things, among them the wonderful weather, colourful culture, beautiful towns and cities and amazing game reserves make South Africa famous, but there is something else, and it makes for a great day out! We’re talking about wine; for as many as three centuries South Africa has produced some of the finest wines in the world, and the best of these can be found in the ancient wine estates of the Cape region. Take a trip on the Franschhoek Valley Wine Tram and you will enjoy an experience not to be found elsewhere!

The wine tram takes you on a choice of four routes through the glorious Franschhoek Valley, complete with its rolling landscape and populous vineyards plus spectacular mountain scenery, and you can choose to hop on and off at any of the stops along the way. The tram stops at many of the finest estates in the valley where you can choose to either roam the wonderful countryside or take a tour of one of the wineries. The chance to enjoy tasting some of the best wines of the region – a complimentary session comes with each adult ticket – is something we are sure you will relish!

The sheer beauty of the Franschhoek Valley is surpassed by few places in South Africa, and the rich heritage and culture of the region is fascinating. Kids will love thigh journey on the traditional and comfortable tram as it winds its way through the valley, and adults the chance to learn how the wine estates came to be. Not to forget, some of the finest restaurants in the region can be found among the wine estates, so don’t delay, book your seats on the wine tram experience, and enjoy a day out – or more – in the wonderful Franschhoek Valley.
