The Beautiful Boland

4 days 3 nights – The Western Cape’s beautiful Boland region invites you to come along on an unforgettable photographic tour to capture and experience the romance of the historic Cape Dutch. The tour leaves from Somerset West and will follow the route to the town of Wellington, known for its table grapes, deciduous fruit and a brandy industry. It is situated at the foot of the Groenberg on the banks of the Kromme Rivier (Dutch for Bend River) and forms the center of the Cape Winelands with its picturesque environment and numerous wineries. The town is at the base of one of the oldest mountain passes in the country, Bain’s Kloof Pass, built by master road-builder Andrew Geddes Bain.  Go to Bookings and rates for booking forms and Contact us for FULL ITINERARY
