Dating back to 1692, Babylonstoren is a historic Cape Dutch farm that boasts one of the best preserved farmyards in the Cape. Beloved for its magnificent garden that is laid out over 3,5 hectares, the garden is divided into sections that comprise fruit, vegetables, berries, bees for pollinating, indigenous plants and more. Every aspect of Babylonstoren is led by the ever-changing tapestry and botanical diversity of the garden. Wines are produced in a state-of-the-art winery and are made to showcase the soils and climate of where the grapes are grown.

Dining: Housed in an old cow shed, Babel is a wonderful mix of Cape Dutch architecture with contemporary glass walls that makes for a simple yet edgy environment in which to try tasty yet often unconventional combinations. The restaurant has a farm-to-fork philosophy, which means food that is seasonal and that reflects a “pick, clean and serve” approach. Helpings are generous and depending on the weather you can take your meal in the glass-enclosed restaurant or under the trees in the courtyard.

Activities: Daily Cellar Tours (hourly 11am – 3pm), Garden
