Robertson’s claim to fame is that it has the longest wine route in the world, stretching all the way from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. It is well known for its beauty, famous for its high-quality wines and notorious for its lovely roses and thoroughbred horses.
Robertson is situated in the magnificent Langeberg Mountains with the Breede River flowing through it. It has over 100 years of history and has grown to become one of the most attractive Cape Winelands towns in the country. Age old Victorian buildings, jacaranda-lined streets and rose filled vineyards all welcome you when you arrive.
The region might be famous for its wines, but there is a whole range of other attractions, activities and culinary delights on offer. Robertson is also a producer of olives, which are grown and processed locally.
There is a variety of outdoor activities to enjoy and you can relax on one of the popular river boat cruises, go on a game drive or explore one of the hiking trails situated in the Vrolijkheid Nature Reserve. Take a stroll through the extraordinary cactus gardens at the Sheilam Cacti and Succulent Garden or enjoy a day exploring the gardens, mazes and the labyrinth at Soekershof Private Maze and Botanical Garden.
Mountain biking, canoeing, white river rafting and horseback riding are only some of the other widely popular activities on offer. Bird’s Paradise is an excellent outing for the children with bird species from Central America, Africa and even Asia. There are also monkeys and crocodiles to view as well as a play park where the young ones can get rid of some of their stored up energy.
There are wonderful annual events to look forward to as well including the Robertson Wacky Wine Weekend, the Robertson Slow and the Robertson Wine-on-the-River. The spectacular scenery combined with the warm hospitality from the locals truly makes this a fantastic holiday getaway for the whole family to enjoy.

Tulbagh is wonderful holiday retreat during any season, blessed with snow-capped peaks in winter, gorgeous summer days and pleasant autumn evenings as well as a burst of colour when the wild flowers are in full bloom during spring time.
Each season offers its own unique charms and the best time to visit depends on your individual interests. The summers are very hot and dry; from November to February. Autumn runs from March to May and it’s the best time for hiking trips. Winter time between June and August brings snow to the mountain tops and icy cold temperatures in the evening.
