The small quaint rural town of Tulbagh that lies around 90 minutes drive from Cape Town, the town is a must visit for those seeking out something a little less touristy but equally as stunning as any of the more famous Cape Winelands towns.
The wine estates of the valley produce exceptional wines of all varieties, the accommodation establishments offer great value, and as a bonus, the town is flanked on three sides by high mountain peaks providing visitors with a unique and stunning destination like no other.
Tulbagh itself is over 300 years old (the fourth oldest town in South Africa) and is littered with Cape Dutch, Edwardian and Victorian buildings. Is it worth the time to visit? Yes; but not as a day trip, we highly recommend that one stays at least one night to experience all that this fantastic little town has to offer.
Below is a few pages highlighting all that is Tulbagh, all images were taken by us here at Uyaphi.com.
- Waverley Hills WinesWaverley Hills wine tasting, cellar, restaurant and vineyard is well worth the visit when in the Tulbagh region. Okay, so truth be told they are actually located near the town of Wolseley on the road between Tulbagh and Ceres, but on saying that only a 10-minute drive from Tulbagh itself.
- Tulbagh Church StreetThe old Church Street in Tulbagh is one of the more historic streets in South Africa and also one of the prettier. The town itself and the street are around 300 years old but some of the building in Church Street is a little newer than that, yes it gets rather complicated at this point.
- Ceres Zipline AdventureSometimes one just needs a bit of excitement and adventure in one's life; well the 1.4 km long Zipline in Ceres has you and your family covered on this one. This is the perfect start to one's day, get all that adrenaline flowing before you head off on a wine tasting excursion or ten.
