Just 45 minutes drive from Cape Town lies the historical town of Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch is the second oldest town in South Africa and one of the most scenic. Its location in the heart of the Cape Winelands is in as beautiful a setting as you are likely to find anywhere.

Justly famous for its wine and fine cuisine, Stellenbosch has much to offer its visitors. A wide variety of activities await you, if you are an outdoor person the vineyards, mountains, streams and golf courses will tempt you to explore. If you prefer a more sedate experience, the many wine cellars offering tastings and sales, the fine restaurants, boutiques and historical architecture of Stellenbosch are sure to provide you with plenty to occupy your time.

The heart of the town lies somewhere near the oak-lined Dorp Street. With its venerable old buildings, this is the University´s main thoroughfare, where modern student life sits comfortably side by side with our history and architectural heritage.
