Fertile soils and a Mediterranean climate are all you need to cultivate the best grapes in South Africa.  Take a road trip along the famous Stellenbosch Wine Route, enjoying the expansive valleys and stop off at dozens of wineries for a few tastings.

 

Facts about the automotive museum

  • The Wijnland Auto Museum has the largest collection of classic and vintage vehicles in South Africa, from the 1926 Ford Model T to the 2012 Lamborghini Gallardo e-gear.
  • There are loads of hidden gems among the rusty wrecks in the car graveyard that will be as good as new after some restoration. For example, they’ve still got a DeSoto Airflow just waiting to be pimped.
  • There’s a story behind each of the three hundred vehicles in the museum: most of them have made appearances in movies, photo shoots, and advertising spots.
  • Owner Les Boshoff has a barn full of parts that he uses to convert right-steering cars to left-steering for a film set.
