Wandering Along Stellenbosch


Activity Description

Join Stellenbosch on Foot for a Historical tour of Stellenbosch and explore the “village of the oaks” with its shady oak avenues bordered by the water furrows of the Mill Stream. Admire the charm and harmony of the Cape Dutch Architecture and listen to tales about the colorful inhabitants of three centuries.
Discover where Simon van der Stel set up camp in the Eerste River and why it is called the Eerste River. Perhaps you will meet an angel at the “Angel Factory” or a ghost in the graveyard of the ”Moederkerk”.
Three fires destroyed the village. Where did the fire of 1710 start and who started it? The first Christian Church building in South Africa was in Stellenbosch not in Cape Town. Today it is the site of the oldest hotel in South Africa, d’Ouwe Werf and not all the graves have been moved!
Dorp Street, “the wagon way to Cape Town” is the oldest residential street in South Africa today. It is still the wagon way to Cape Town, only the wagons have changed somewhat!
We invite you to join Stellenbosch on Foot for a Historical tour of Stellenbosch to hear many more interesting facts and fables about the past while experiencing the present in “The Eikestad”.
Lunch will be at Oppie Dorp Restaurant, we have been established in the idyllic Stellenbosch since 2012. Our mission since has been to create an easy dining experience for everyone!
Lunch consists of a choice of Risotto or a 200g Sirlion Steak & chips followed by malva pudding or creme brulee.
