The Cape Winelands have ended up on the Lonely Planet’s Top 10 Best Value holidays for 2020 along with some incredible destinations!


Global – Lonely Planet is a travel guide company that prints millions of books to accompany every kind of traveller. Each year they sell millions of copies to hopeful travellers across the globe.

The company is at the forefront of reliable travel information. Annually they have awards for the best travel in the world and this year the Cape Winelands found itself on one of the lists for 2020.

The Cape Winelands was voted 8th of the best value holiday for 2020 alongside places like Athens, Greece and Budapest, Hungary to name a few!

“South Africa is a regular fixture in lists of places that offer a friendly exchange rate for those looking for world-class safaris and other wildlife spotting, but there’s much more to the country than Kruger and other reserves. A short journey from the fabulous food city of Cape Town is the country’s wine region, centred on the historic towns of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch. The real action here is at the wineries and fabulous restaurants dotting the beautiful upland scenery.

You won’t find elephants snuffling round the vineyards, but you will find inexpensive tasting tours followed by lazy lunches serving world-class food alongside delicious local wines. If you care to stretch your wallet a little further when staying the night you can sleep it all off in high-end guesthouses and B&Bs that would cost a lot more elsewhere.” – Lonely Planet

South Africa has some of the best Winelands in the world, and we are sure our fellow wine drinkers will agree, some of the best wine too, so we are not surprised by this listing.
