  • Boschendal is a majestic estate with something for everyone. From food to mountain biking. There are a deli and restaurant with picnic facilities under the shades of beautiful trees. Mountain bikes can be rented and ridden on the flowing trail network on the other side of the road. There are also a few guesthouses available for those who want to experience the farm life overnight.
  • Great picnics, farm-to-table cuisine,wine and food pairing, lots of activities,beautiful scenery, good guest experience, family friendly. Enough to keep you entertained the whole day.
  • Beautiful and relaxing place to go.. A little more expensive for south Africa prices but you do get what you pay for.. I wish there were places like that in the UK..
  • Great place, awesome wines. This place is so beautiful and open.
  • An excellent (previously owned by Cycil John Rhodes) wine estate with wines that is known globally
